Since Kristi Lutu has a supermodel of nail polish bottles a few years ago, there is nothing close to the beautiful packaging. But this month, the designer will launch a limited edition chrome nail polish three packaging, I dare say more beautiful than the first line. This will be the best gift to give her.
The collection is called Loubichrome Nail Colours and is basically the cooler younger sister to the original line. The handles, which are normally a solid color, have a holographic feel that makes them look like unicorn horns, and the bottles are slightly smaller.
The three shades are called Loubichrome I, II, and III, and are metallic shades of lime, red, and purple, respectively.
It’s obvious that the packaging has won me over, but what about the actual polish? I quickly tried them out at my desk and swatched each color on my nails. Each of the shades was highly pigmented, so I really only needed one coat. The photos that I took are sans top coat, so what you see is exactly how they look out of the bottle.
This is the first time I’ve tried Louboutin’s signature calligraphy brush handle, and I have to say, it kind of made painting nails easier?? I’m a fan. As far as which shade is my favorite, it’s a tie for me between the lime and the purple, but I don’t think you could go wrong with any of the three.
The Loubichromes launch this month and pretty soon you’ll be able to buy them for $30 a pop. Although that might sound expensive for nail polish, that’s a pretty fair price to pay for a nail polish with a chrome unicorn horn on top, I’d say.
