Louboutin Nail Polish Review

It’s here πŸ™‚ I feel like a child at the moment after having had the chance to sit down, examine and use the new edition to my polish collection I can say I’m a happy lady. Yes this has got to be the most prestigious polish I own, are there any others that are this expensive? At Β£36/$50 its certainly not cheap, but is it worth it? Read on to see what I think.

I ordered my polish directly from Louboutin, it releases in stores in the UK on the 14th of August, and I believe it will be on general sale on the 6th of August in the US.

My polish arrived last week and I didn’t even open it for 2 days, just because I have been so busy I did not want to open it and not have the time to give it the attention it needs πŸ™‚

On opening the package I was greeted not only by a polish bottle but also a lovely card, which really did make me feel like it was my birthday.

I was a little disappointed it did not come in the same box that the press release items came in, but suppose that would add more cost onto the item.

It is quite a magnificent thing, I was truly amazed at the beautiful design and well who cannot notice that massive handle/cap based on the famous Ballerina Heel shoe created by Louboutin, which is 8 inches tall.

Ok so enough about the packaging, well not quite here are a series of photos to show you just how big this polish bottle is.

Β I can actually say my hands were shaking as I applied the first coat of the polish, I’m not sure if it was the fact I was holding a Β£36 polish in my hands or the excitement that it was Louboutin or the fact I was just very tired, but I was excited.

I was not disappointed, it applied like a dream and is probably a one coater with its high pigmentation, but I applied 2 coats. Β I’ve never had a polish that has had the perfect amount of polish on the brush to cover my nail evenly but this did. Β I found it a little hard to handle at first with the large cap but I became used to it very quickly and here was the result.

Gahhhh isn’t it beautiful, it was so easy to apply and this picture is with no top coat. Apologies for the finger prints I did try cleaning the bottle but it is hard with it being so glossy πŸ™‚

I have never had a nail polish that actually felt like this, it is something very special, the formula is just perfect, and what I would need 4-6 coats of some reds this does in just 2.

So I had to do some nail art and it was very much inspired by the bottle. Β I am a bit of a glitter gradient fan, and if you are following me on instagram you will know that, so I thought what better than a black glitter gradient.

So there you have it, my round up of the much talked about Louboutin rouge nail polish, is it worth it?? In my opinion it certainly is, and for us premium beauty fans it’s a must have item. Β Not only is it an amazing polish but it is a work of art, as is each and every shoe that Louboutin creates. Β I’m in love and I Β am looking forward to the launch of the other colours later in the month.

Thanks for reading xxx

  1. Omigosh I have seen the press releases and the release day images but I was not prepared for this! It’s a work of art! It’s my 30th birthday in November…I may have to add it to my birthday list and if no one buys it for me I will buy it for myself!
    I have to have it!

    Even if the cap is a little on the large side!

    1. Sorry Im just seeing this comment πŸ™‚ Oh you most def have to get it for your birthday, I will be reviewing some more of he shades from he rest of the collection too πŸ™‚

  2. thank you so much for the detailed review! πŸ™‚ the design is certainly breathtaking! some of my thoughts: “it did not come in the same box that the press release items came in, but suppose that would add more cost onto the item” – and how much do you think the production cost? obviously, the price is not set according to the value of the product here, but the value of the brand. the other thing: I’m still amazed by the American reviews in terms of coverage. I live in the EU, and in my childhood if a polish did not serve with full color in coat, it equaled bad quality. Still, I can easily buy here polishes that work in 1 coat with fast drying time, and cost only the fragment of the price of this polish. I buy pricey ones too, but only if it comes in a special shade, or has unique finish. Unfortunately this one is certainly not one of them. πŸ™
    anyways, thanks again for the review and the pictures as well! and your glitter gradient looks great too! πŸ™‚

    1. I completely understand how you feel. The bottle and brand are certainly the selling point here. The cost is certainly not set by production costs which i am sure are not much more than most polishes, although the bottle itself is probably worth more than most polishes are πŸ™‚ Thanks for your detailed comment xx

  3. Hi, I live in Brazil and have wanted the louboutin polish for quite some time, but it`s not easy to find here.. A friend of mine is going to Paris and offered to bring it, but he`d travel with it as carry on, and I`d like to know if it is possible to take it through an airport, since it`s very pointy and might be considered hazardous..

    1. Good question, I am not sure tbh. But if it is bought in duty free i am sure you can take it on a flight. He should back in the hold luggage if he is buying from a store and not the airport, that way it is fine. He needs to make sure he packs it properly so it will not break.
