The most expensive nail polish in the world.
When it comes to beauty splurges, we consider nail polish a pretty modest one. We’ll happily drop $10-15 for a new shade, or up to $30 for a truly special color every once in a while. But even us beauty fiends have to draw the line at a polish that costs more than what the 99 Percent makes in a year.
A new limited edition polish by jewelry designer AZATURE costs $250,000—and the polish is so exclusive they’re only making one bottle, called Black Diamond. What could possibly cause it to cost $250k, you might ask? The polish contains 267 carats of real black diamonds. According to the designer, “the black diamond is the ultimate fine jewel. Its combination of beauty, mystery, and sophistication makes it a timeless luxury. One day I thought, ‘why not showcase this style on nails?’” Our big question is, who will make the ultimate showing of wealth and purchase the bottle?
In case the idea of wearing black diamonds on your nails appeals to you, but you don’t have the funds to bankroll the limited edition bottle, the folks at AZATURE have also designed a bottle for the rest of us. A $25 version of the glittery black polish contains a real black diamond and will be available at Fred Segal starting this month.
Will you pick up the $25 version?
