Christian Louboutin Launches Nail Polish Line With Terrifying Packaging and Video

It’s the stuff of nightmares.

Perhaps Monsieur Louboutin should stick to shoes.

The king of heels is branching out into beauty. His first stop: a nail polish collection, which at this moment consists of only one color, Rouge Louboutin, which shoe-lovers will recognize from the shiny soles of Louboutin shoes.

On the Christian Louboutin website, there is a trippy, Tim Burton-esque promotional video for the nail polish that is pretty much the stuff of my nightmares.

First, there is a crazy anime-like universe where everything is pointy and giant pearls float around ominously.


Then the spiky heel of a pair of terrifyingly high shoes suddenly doubles and spins off crazily, which is really a nightmare in itself.

CL2 After this, spiky blood bottles float around. It’s all very menacing and it makes me want to do anything other than paint my nails.


Flash to a blood-red mani.


The polish is $50 (no, not a typo. It’s really $50), and it comes in that eight-inch tall glass bottle, because beauty is pain and nothing is more painful than accidentally stabbing yourself with a $50 bottle of nail polish. Ready for a mani?CL5
