In case you’ve been out of the fashion scene for the past century, its the iconic red sole of Louboutin shoes that has made the brand famous.
According to the legend, in 1992, Christian Louboutin, felt that there was something missing with his shoes… they were not as vibrant as he had sketched them… He then grabbed a bottle of red nail polish from an assistant and painted the soles. And just like this thanks to a nail polish was born the famous red sole of Christian Louboutin.
So it’s no surprise that the designer has decided to launch nail polish, debut in the world of the beauty industry. Little bottles with sharp elongated caps similar to the high heels of his stilettos.
First shade, Rouge Louboutin, goes on sale today for $50 , exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue. A long-wearing, chip resistant formula is highly pigmented with luxe, glossy color and UV protection to keep the color true. Two coats give the effect of 20 layers of traditional lacquer, with a brilliant shine. A custom-designed, patented triangular brush ensures precise application, while shorter bristles pick up the right amount of product, preventing air bubbles and ensuring flawless coverage.
On August 6, at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Nordstrom and Sephora the same shade will be launched and on August 31 other shades will go on sale .
