The man who rules the souls of the women with his red sole creations launches his new limited-edition nail-polish collection. Inspired by a key piece of Egyptian iconography, the scarab beetle, Christian Louboutin has designed the new Scarabée limited edition collection of nail-colors.Comprising of Scarabée I, II and III, the three lacquers come in the luminescent colors of beetles. Divas can flaunt the iridescent beauty and wonder of this creature which is sacred to the Pharaohs by dipping their finger tips in the Scarabée Limited Edition Collection. “They can look beautiful and reflective under the bright sun but also look like a precious jewel by night” says the designer.
While Scarabée I will dress the nails in a metallic rose gold shade, Scarabée II will give them a rich turquoise makeover with flashes of purple, green and gold. Scarabée III renders kaleidoscopic transformation with sparkling bronze topped with green and blue highlights.
While the signature form of the glass bottle and the custom-designed, patented triangular brush has not been altered, it comes packed in a distinctive soft touch mat carton featuring a cut-out window and a copper gold scarab motif. Priced at $50, the highly pigmented, super glossy formula achieves in just two coats the effect of 20 layers of traditional lacquer.
Addressing Egypt as his second home, the Parisian shoe designer has also created a patent leather named Scarabée Océan-Amazone in a graded shade of blue-to-green.
