Christian Louboutin is known for his trademark blood red stiletto soles, and the luxury shoe designer is once again channelling the colour — this time via a new trio of nail polishes.

The designer has unveiled three new red-inspired summer nail colour shades, designed for high octane glamorous occasions, named ‘The Neo-Reds’. The range comprises the shimmering ‘Jazzy Doll’, a subtly sparkly peony red named after one of the brand’s leather sandals, and the deep raspberry ‘Lady Peep’, a sophisticated and seductive hue named after the label’s popular peep-toe stiletto. The preppy ‘EdgyPopi’, a punchy and flirty orangered, rounds off the collection.

The high-shine polishes feature a highly pigmented formula designed to provide glossy colour in just one coat. Longwearing and chip-resistant, the varnishes are formulated without Toluene, Formaldehyde, or DBP. Each new polish is enclosed in a nude-coloured soft touch box with a reveal to match the cap from each colour family.

Christian Louboutin first broke into the beauty industry in 2014 with a first nail polish collection, but cemented his influence on the market last September when he released a lipstick line. The line’s star piece, "The Rouge Louboutin" lipstick, packaged in luxurious black, silver and gold casing, was accompanied by a further 35 hues, packaged in gold casing and priced at US $90.

The Jazzy Doll, Lady Peep & EdgyPopi shades will be available from June 2016 in selected stores and on www.christianlouboutin.com, priced at US $50.
