When news came down the pipes last week of the Christian Louboutin nail polish, we downed tools and spent a solid 45 minutes talking about the new release – the bottle, the shade, the collection, the fact that the iconic Louboutin red sole came about because Christian thought his shoe needed a little something extra, and he grabbed his assistants red nail polish to paint the sole and the rest is history. The brand plans to release a full cosmetics line, but polish is first, and we are glad it is. The whole line will be released August 31, but they wanted to make a big deal of the signature red shade, so Rouge Louboutin is available now (yay!) from Nordstrom, Saks, and Louboutin.
What is perhaps the coolest part of this release is the commercial, created by avant-garde filmmaker David Lynch. This thing is weird, man. Like, totally cuckoo-bananas. But then again, a regular commercial would not have cut it for a $50 nail polish in an iconic bottle. Whether the price tag is worth it remains to be seen, but we are excited to find out.
