I can’t quite believe it is September already! The weather is definitely getting colder and the nights are drawing in. The change of season also brings some changes to my makeup. Plum lipstick one day and red nail colour the next!
Wearing darker nail colours makes using a base coat really important, and it is with this in mind that I wanted to share with you my thoughts on the Louboutin Loubi Nail Care Kit.
This box set really is a touch of luxury. It contains two bottles – one containing the Loubi Nail Primer and one containing the top coat. The base coat (nail primer) creates a smooth and flawless base to make the best out of our chosen nail colour. The Loubi top coat (nail gloss) seals our chosen colour and helps to provide a chip-free shine and also UV protection.
The bottles are as to be expected – stunning! The bottles are not as big as the nail colours but still have the same tall handle inspired by the heels of his beautiful shoes. This sculpted handle makes application a dream.
Using the base and top coat gave me a manicure that lasted a week with minimal chipping on some tips. This isn’t quite as long lasting as a fast drying top coat but it also did not cause any shrinking to the edges.
If I had to choose between buying this set and a nail colour from the Louboutin collection there is no doubt that I would choose the nail colour. That said, the quality of the top and base coat are exceptional. And it is after all exceptional quality that makes Louboutin stand out as being very special.
The Louboutin Nail Care Kit is priced at £40.00.
