Christian Louboutin found his muse in a key piece of Egyptian iconography, the scarab beetle. The iridescent beauty and wonder of this creature sacred to the Pharaohs, inspired three new shades of nail colour ‘the Scarabée Limited Edition Collection’. Three amazingly beautiful colors, we only found in the past by houses like YSL and Christian Dior. Divas can flaunt the iridescent beauty and wonder of this creature which is sacred to the Pharaohs by dipping their finger tips in the Scarabée Limited Edition Collection. “They can look beautiful and reflective under the bright sun but also look like a precious jewel by night” says the designer.

While Scarabée I will dress the nails in a metallic rose gold shade, Scarabée II will give them a rich turquoise makeover with flashes of purple, green and gold.

While the signature form of the glass bottle and the custom-designed, patented triangular brush has not been altered, it comes packed in a distinctive soft touch mat carton featuring a cut-out window and a copper gold scarab motif. Priced at $50, the highly pigmented, super glossy formula achieves in just two coats the effect of 20 layers of traditional lacquer, is it it’s price more then worth! Depents on your own taste, but all three a perfect on any skincolor or skin tone!

Addressing Egypt as his second home, the Parisian shoe designer has also created a patent leather named Scarabée Océan-Amazone in a graded shade of blue-to-green.
