20 Years after Christian Louboutin painted his first stiletto sole with red varnish as a finishing touch, women around the world now recognize the infamous red soles everywhere. Even if you don’t know it, you’ve seen them and they look nice.
To me Louboutins are a symbol of luxury, art, and sex. Each pair is beautifully crafted and every detail is thought of. Wearing a pair of Louboutins makes you sway your hips a little and walk a little sultrier. The best part is how the toe cleavage make foot fetishes go wild.
Going back to almost 2 years ago (wow time flies), I was newly engaged and before I had a location, dress, or even idea of what I wanted my wedding to be like, I knew what I’d be wearing on my feet. A pair of Christian Louboutins.

Many girls dream of their dress, first dance, their ring, mine were the shoes I’d be walking down the aisle in.
Flash forward to last week during an impromptu date night, which consisted of my husband being the best and most patient husband in the world by taking me to my favorite Sephora in L.A., there it was. The most beautiful nail polish on display with NO tester.
I had heard that Christian Louboutin was releasing a nail polish and I had decided that I did not need this beautiful nail polish in the most artistically constructed packaging I’d ever seen, but I had to share the visual with my husband. When I walked up to it and showed him, He said “Wow that’s nice.” I asked “would you totally kill me for spending $50 on nail polish?” Without hesitation he said “no, it’s a collection item and you love Louboutin.” I know that I have married the right man for me since our first date, but that moment reminded me how wonderful he really is and how much he just gets me.

We walked away to have a wonderful dinner so I could think about it. After some advice from my Instagram crew, I made the decision to go back and spend $50 on this baby.
It took me 2 days to even open the box and expose the beautiful bottle. Then another day to paint my nails with the most beautiful nail polish handle.

I have to say Mr. Louboutin did not disappoint one bit. The formulation is rich, pigmented, beautifully fluid, and so far no chips (we’re going on day 31/2 with some major house work). Every time I look down at my toes or my hands, I have a little smile. It reminds me of the shade of the sexy red soles when you walk away wearing a pair of Louboutins.

Will you be purchasing your very own polish? Have you ever splurge on a major designer item? I’d love to hear your thoughts and stories.
