Christian Louboutin-Inspired Manicures Are a Shoe-Lover's Fantasy
You can recognise a Christian Louboutin shoe anywhere. From the front, the shoe's svelte silhouette flatters the leg, while the iconic red sole has you hypnotised as the wearer walks away. Fun fact: that pop of rouge originally came from Christian himself painting nail polish on the bottom of a pump! (So it made major sense that the designer would expand his fashion brand into a beauty line.)
Shoe-lovers and nail art fanatics alike are paying homage to those same red bottoms via the Louboutin Manicure. This look typically consists of painting a black or nude lacquer on the top of the nail while applying a streak of red to the underside of the talon, so it flashes out whenever you move. Having trouble getting the perfect red bottom on your nails? Christian Louboutin actually makes a lacquer just for that, featuring a special felt-tip brush that allows you to add crimson to every little crevice.
