Christian Louboutin inspired nails

Being the shoe lover I am it's no surprise that I love the old red bottoms. They're such beautiful shoes and are great designs that will go with anything. 


I'm not a massive bag person, I don't really care about jewellery. But heels are my thing and I've always planned to treat myself to some expensive ones.
I plan to at least own a couple of pairs in my lifetime. I will definitely get married in a pair.


But for now I am channelling my love for them through my nails! I painted them with Bourjois 1 Seconde Nail polish in '11 Rouge In Style' which is such a gorgeous glossy red and looks so classic on its own but I felt like adding a little something. My Leather Effect Nails Inc nail polish in 'Nobo' hadn't been used for a while to I added a black leather-look to the tip on the ring finger. I couldn't help but think of a certain type of footwear...


It's very simple and it's a little nod to my favourite shoe designer, though the shoes in the picture obviously aren't Louboutins but are my lovely new Carvela pair that my boyfriend bought me for Christmas.


I love the look and the polish lasted me almost a week without chipping, and that was without a topcoat. The red was opaque in 1 coat but the second gave it a bit more depth. It probably would have lasted even longer but I change my nail polish so often I just wanted to try another colour!

What do you think?
What inspires your change of nail colour?
