“The red sole was born from red nail polish. I am giving back to beauty what the shoes took from the nails many years ago.” –Christian Louboutin
If your a lover of the red sole then you'll be happy to know Christian Louboutain has brought out a new nail polish line ... I was lucky enough to be gifted a bottle of "rouge" and enjoy the famous red stain on my nails. If there was ever a fitting interpretation to mirror his shoes then this is it - it's rockstar yet classy, patent in all senses both the bottle and the nail polish finish and it has that iconic hit of red we all know and love.
THE BOTTLE : The packaging is just pure genius and one of a kind presented in luxurious black box with peekaboo rogue It has a 7inch cap which was inspired by a calligraphy pen and to mimci the stem of the shoe. The bottle itself moulded from cut glass and inspired by classical balustrades found in European buildings
NAIL POLISH : It goes on quite thin but not lacking in vibrance you really only need one coat and despite the bottles shape it's actually quite easy to apply. The finish is patent and shiny as designed to be and despite the number of coats it seems to retain it's signature red. I dare you to swatch test it .
PRICE & STOCKISTS : Rouge retails for which $50.00 (AED240) which might seem a bit steep for nail polish but it's definitely a more affordable option to the shoe. At this price I'd imagine the bottle will sit happily unopened and adorning many shelves but i beg you to wear it at least once. There is a whole range of other colours including more gothic hues and on the other spectrum a pastel range. Pick up from your nearest Christian Louboutin store or online at Sephora
