Christian Louboutin Wherever
Oh I’m so lucky that my husband put himself in the doghouse the other day. To get himself out, he’ll often buy me polish, and he checks my wishlist page to be sure he buys the correct thing (and doesn’t put himself at risk of living the canine lifestyle for any longer!)
Now I don’t recall ever adding the Louboutin polishes to my wishlist, but I had mentioned them, and had heavily hinted how much I loved the look of them. But, we’re big time skint at the moment, so I agreed I wouldn’t buy one.
However, to get himself back in my good books, my husband bought me not one, but two Christian Louboutin polishes: Louboutin Rouge and Wherever. It was a lovely gesture (despite the fact that 1. we can’t really afford them, and 2. all our money is shared, so I kind of paid for them myself anyway!)
Wherever is a navy blue. Like Rouge Louboutin, it goes on really well without any streaking and only a tiny bit of patchiness where I didn’t paint it on so thick. I think you could probably get away with just one thick coat of this polish, but I did two. I love the distinctive handle and I’ve read many reviews where bloggers say it doesn’t hinder the polishing, but I felt it did. The brush itself is very similar to the Chanel brushes, which I love, but I found it a bit difficult to work with and can only put that down to the handle.
The shade itself is not particularly unique in my collection – in fact it’s not far off what I was already wearing: Sally Hansen Thinking Of Blue. But then I didn’t want a Louboutin polish for the colour; I wanted it for the uniqueness of the bottle, the cachet of owning something Louboutin (because how could I ever afford a pair of £400 shoes – let alone the ones they sell for £4k!), and for the smug feeling that my husband said sorry so extravagantly 🙂

I had wondered about the Sally Hansen when I saw the picture on Facebook originally, but didn’t want to see rude by likening the posh polish to one I got from Fragrance Direct. Still, good old hubs 🙂
In fairness, the red’s not unique either, but it’s limited edition, and iconic, so I’m glad I have it!
That bottle just kills me everytime I see it!
I know! It’s ridiculous. But magnificently so.
