Priced at $50 in the US, Rouge Louboutin is described by the brand as "a timeless, vibrant red suited to any skin tone." Eight inches high, the bottle was inspired by the Ballerina Ultima shoe, the tallest heel Christian Louboutin has ever created, and features ombré-effect faceted glass and a pointed metallic cap that contains the brush. Said applicator is in a triangular shape designed to pick up the polish and deposit it on your nails without any air bubbles ruining the party.

The whole shebang comes in a patent red finish box, which can be ordered online on the brand’s e-shop.
