The Louboutin manicure

Like every other fashionista, I love Christian Louboutin and what his shoes do to our street cred if we’re lucky enough to own a pair. Those signature red soles did more for Carrie Bradshaw than Mr Big ever did! Buying a brand new pair of one of the most popular designer shoe brands in the world will set you back over £300 for a start, but you can get something just as sexy without needing to take on a second mortgage.

The Louboutin Manicure is inspired by those stylish soles, creating the same effect for your fingernails and instantly giving you designer paws. Created by Charles Worthington manicurist Zoe Pocock, the underside of the nail is painted with a red polish and the top a deep black or grey in homage to Louboutin’s classic style. The shoes may hurt your bank account and your tootsies too, but this manicure is the perfect way to explore new ways to paint your nails whilst looking stylish with the hottest new trends. The soles of Louboutin shoes never fail to captivate eyes after that first quick flash of racy red, and this manicure is sure to create the same effect.

To get the perfect Louboutin Manicure try out OPI’s colour range, perfect for this designer treat. For the underside, ‘The Thrill of Brazil’ provides that cheeky red to turn heads and for the top coating either 'Black Onyx' for the classic Louboutin look or 'My Private Jet' for a sleeker grey style. To give the extra wow factor at parties, use OPI's 'DS Reflection' or Barry M's 'Red Glitter' to give a shimmery look to the underside of your nails.
