The future in-laws were in town a few weeks ago and when we went out to breakfast they handed me the best present ever. Christian Louboutin polish in Rouge Louboutin. I think it's safe to say they know and love me, because this present was spot on. ;-)
If you don't know the story, the first time Louboutin gave one of his shoes the signature red bottom, he did it using a bottle of red polish. That's why this polish and it's bottle are so special.
More than anything I wanted the polish for the bottle, because that by itself is an art piece. I didn't think much about the actual polish. "Eeh, it's another red" I thought. It is a pretty standard red, but the formula, the formula is outstanding. This is one coat. ONE! Not only that, but I wore this polish for 8 (EIGHT!) days and had minimal tip wear. I did all the normal things while wearing this polish. Typing, using tools, playing with dogs, cooking, cleaning, you name it this polish went through it. It looked practically perfect when I took it off.
I'm not going to lie, the polish is insanely expensive. Is it worth it? That's up to you. You can find similar reds for much cheaper. I would have bought it if it hadn't been a gift, but like I said, purely for the bottle. What do you think of it?
Enjoy & until next, Amy Lee
