NOTD: Christian Louboutin Farida

Today I have an absolute beauty to share with you! I'm excited to get a chance to share a new Christian Louboutin polish, which I was lucky enough to receive as a birthday gift from my wonderful husband.

Farida, which is part of the Noir collection, is described as a shimmer bronze brown and I'd say that's pretty spot on. It leans more brown in indoor lighting, with the bronze really coming alive in the sun. I will say right off the bat that I know the pricing is a bit insane for some people and I totally get that. For me though, this is more than just polish. It's a work of art. The bottle is weighty and substantial. The handle is sleek and well proportioned. This is easily something that can be sat out on display as an art piece. But that's probably not what you want to know. You want to know about the formula. 


Seriously it's been ages since I have had a formula that was so nice that it surprised me. It felt like butter going onto the nail. The brush put the color right where I wanted it and glided along the nail beautifully. It wasn't too thick or thin, just perfect. Had I been prepared for how well it applied it would have been a one coat wonder. Instead I went with two thinner coats, which also worked perfectly. I'm just really impressed. Now that's not to say that other colors won't have issues, but this one was just perfect.

Along with that, I applied this mani four days ago and all I have is minimal tip wear and very slight chipping on the edge of my left pointer finger. Which is the finger I use for pretty much everything. Very impressed.
