You know the classic red-soled black stiletto; you probably have one or two or a few in your closet. You have even probably painted the sole red to achieve that look without the high price. After all, it is a common wardrobe hack us females discovered long ago. Yet I doubt you ever considered using the same technique on your nails. However, Christian Louboutin’s new ‘Loubi Under Red’ nail polish shade gives you that idea now!
Think about it. Why is it that the red sole attracts so much attention? What gives it its classic elegance? The contrast of the colours, one so dark and the other so clearly bright simply cannot be ignored by the human eye, and we will watch those heels as they walk away, heart pounding at the devilish allure they hold over our souls. Now, imagine going out on a date, with the black nail polish, but with an added twist of red on the inside.
Christian Louboutin cracked the secret of the red-soled shoes and brought it to the attention of females in the form of nail art. Loubi Under Red is a new release building on the highly publicised launch of his first iconic capsule collection of nail polishes, expanding his reach into the realm of nail art. This new product can be used either as a tantalizing under-nail polish, or as a means to create beautiful art over the nail. Loubi Under Red is a superior rich pigment with a glossy finish that is both long-lasting and chip resistant. It has a flexible felt tip brush to apply the exceptional pigment to the nails, making it quite unique in the cosmetics industry.
Seduction may not have been your ultimate goal, but this particular polish will do just that. It will have you staring at your own nails in awe, just as you would stare at the heels of a woman with red-soled stilettoes. Of course, there is a special manner in which you can wear it as art on the outer part of your nail as well. This is suggested by Christian Louboutin himself. All you have to do is apply Loubi Primer, double coat with the La Favorita light coloured polish, Draw a straight line in the middle using Loubi Under Red, and finish with a Loubi Gloss. Thus you create the effect of the Loubi Malibu Car!
It’s a great product for imaginative nail artists, who try to mix up the type of designs they produce on the nails of their clients. Furthermore, the product is available in 9 different hues, so one may easily mix and match to create the look that’s just right. Our fashion sense often mirrors our personality; so don’t worry about changing up the style to reflect the real you! That’s the reason why the product was created, anyway.
