Splurge or Save? Louboutin Mani/Pedis
Unfortunately, at this point in time, a pair (or 3 dozen) of those infamous Chinese red soles are not a splurge I can afford. I can look at them. Touch them. Visit them in the store and try them on. But as of now, I am unable to take them home with me.
We will be together soon my loves. Of this, I am certain.
There is, however, one splurge that I am able to afford from the maker of said Chinese red soles. Christian Louboutin, maker of some of the sexiest heels that has graced the feet of celebs, d-listers, new money and old money, has launched his own nail polish line. It makes sense. I’m pretty sure he wanted to make sure that when you wore his shoes there wouldn’t be some ratchet busted looking toes peeking through ruining the effect.
How much is splurge you ask? Weeeeeelllllllll….$50.
I know. I know.
Who’s going to spend $50 on nail polish?! Or should I say nail colour. Yes, colour with the u because that’s how we roll around here. This is why it’s a splurge! I mean, Chanel and Dior nail lacquers go for around $24 and I have on occasion bought these for myself.
Essentially, you’re paying for packaging. These are little pieces of art that should proudly be displayed. The cap evokes the feeling of a calligraphy pen and the bottle could pass for cut crystal. An assortment of rich colors are available. And of course, there’s the very first color-Rouge Louboutin- based off those red soles that made him a household name.
Is a $50 price tag too hefty or would you splurge for a Louboutin mani/pedi?
