Ladies, Christian Louboutin’s beauty line is officially out today (but just in the US for now). After being mooted two years ago, the first pieces from the Christian Louboutin Beauté line are nail varnishes. Now, this makes sense because, 22 years ago, frustrated that his shoe designs weren’t as vibrant as his sketches, CL famously snatched a bottle of red nail polish from an assistant and painted the soles of the nearest pair of heels. Bold move, but it obviously paid off. Naturally then, the first nail varnish colour to be announced is a hawt, bus-red number, called Rouge Louboutin. So sophis’!

The Rouge Louboutin varnish goes on sale in the US today and we’re feeling a bit sweaty-palmed about the whole affair. Another 30 other nail shades are due to land any minute now and CL is also creating five top-secret nail-art designs *squeal*. Stiletto nails just got a whole new meaning…
