An insanely luxe nail polish.
Here’s how you elevate the most pedestrian of beauty products to an objet d’art: Start with a lustrous, glossy black cap, expertly weighted at the base for ease of use, and taper it to a point as sharp as a calligraphy pen. Place it atop a faceted ombré bottle inspired by 17th- and 18th-century European balustrades. Then, pour in a high-shine lacquer in that unmistakable crimson—the shade that, when originally paired with Christian Louboutin’s whimsical aesthetic, turned a high-heeled shoe into an iconic design signature. Et voilà.
