Christian Louboutin recently released a line of nude shoes for every skin tone. Now, the famed designer has released an extensive collection of skin-colored nail polishes.
Thanks to his groundbreaking effort to broaden the definition of “nude,” the varied shades make it easy for women of all races and ethnicities to find their perfect match, regardless of the color of their skin.
The inclusive nature of Louboutin’s nude line of nail polish defies the Western notion that the term “nude” refers to standardized white flesh and instead, dares to celebrate the raw pigment of the many skin tones that do exist.
Nude nail shades accompanied by a nude heel are said to lengthen the appearance of the leg-line and toes, creating a unifying look of elegance and symmetry. Louboutin seeks to grant this fashion privilege to all women, not just white women, whom most “nude” products are geared towards. Since beginning his posh pursuit of diverse shades in 2013, Louboutin has crafted a line of nude pumps in seven distinct shades that satisfy this demand for “the new nude.” Cheers to that!
The Nudes collection of polishes is available for purchase at Bergdorf Goodman.
