Christian Louboutin Lova Stamped with Chanel Kaleidoscope: V is for: Valuable
I’m still behind in the A2Z series challenge, but I am catching up. For valuable, I’ve used Christian Louboutin Lova stamped with Chanel Kaleidoscope.
These two polishes are amongst my most valuable. Christian Louboutin sells for £36 a bottle, and is the priciest polish I own. The polish I’ve stamped with is Chanel Kaleidoscope. This was released in autumn 2008, as part of the Golden Child collection. As it was a limited edition polish, it regularly sells on eBay for £70 or £80.
Lova is a lovely shade, on the darker end of the purple spectrum. I’ve painted just one coat of this very regal colour. One coat! And it’s perfect.
Kaleidoscope is an antique gold. I’ve seen it described as pewter, but to me that’s much more grey or silver in colour. This is definitely gold, albeit a dirty-coloured gold. I don’t know that I’d like it much as a plain manicure. Gold doesn’t particularly suit me anyway. And as such, this particular polish has never made it to my nails before. But I was very pleased to discover that it worked really well for stamping. Not that I’m going to start liberally stamping with it, knowing how much it is worth.
The fleur-de-lys design is from Born Pretty Store plate BP-36. The two polishes work well together. The gold enriches the already majestic purple, and the use of the heraldic fleur-de-lys lends it even more of a royal – and hence valuable – feel.
