Now cash-strapped women with a Louboutin shoe fetish will know the exact shade of nail polish to paint the soles of their fakes because Christian Louboutin has launched a nail polish line. Rouge, his signature color, will debut August 8 at Saks, Nordstrom, Neimans and other department stores before the rest of the line on August 30. But like Louboutins themselves, expect to pay top dollar for the stuff. One bottle is $50.
But you have to figure: One bottle plus a pair of DSW pumps still equals like $500 less than an actual pair of Louboutins. And at least the bottles seem like a bargain in comparison to nail polish with actual diamonds in them. It's the tiny things.
