Christian Louboutin Beaute Nail Colours Hawaii Kawai Collection – Very Prive, Miss Loubi and Batignolles Review and Swatches

March 8, 2016

Exploring the Christian Louboutin Beaute range was on top of my “to-do” list for my trip to Hawaii, and I was quite taken by surprise when I saw the nail polish range in real life. They did look the same as in the pictures but the full size bottle was so much bigger than I ever imagined for a nail polish – it could easily be mistaken for a small table sculpture in my opinion. As much as I appreciate how extravagant and expensive they look, I decided to purchase the super cute Louboutin Spring 2016 Hawaii Kawai Nail Set which includes 3 mini colors (actually the size of the mini bottle look the same as a normal nail polish). The set contains 3 best selling permanent shades including Miss Loubi, Very Privé and Batignolles encased in a beautiful box, and retails for USD$90 as compared to $50 per full size bottle, which also makes it a great trial set to get your hands on this luxury brand.

The most distinct design of Louboutin nail polish is the tall and sharp cap.I always thought it was just for the look until I had used it for application, and it makes a whole difference to how much easier to apply the color more precisely with a tall cap. As claimed by the designer himself, the cap design was inspired by calligraphy and it enables the application to be a truly artistic experience. In terms of consistency, it is very smooth and streak free to apply. 2 coats give an even and glossy opaque cream finish. This is as good as you can get for a nail polish. If you prefer an ultra shiny gel like finish, you will need to apply a clear coat for it. Also thumbs up for its lasting power as it didn’t chip for about 5-6 days.

Swatches

Miss Loubi – A pretty vibrant coral color with a hint of pink tone once applied to the nails.

Very-Privé – Same name as Louboutin’s best selling shoe name. It is a sexy and grown-up deep wine red color that looks great on either short or long nails.

Batignolles – My favorite color of the three. It is a cross between minty green and turquoise blue, and it reminds me of everyone’s favorite Tiffany blue.
