So, for our wedding anniversary, my husband got me the nail polish I've been wanting since forever: the Christian Louboutain Rouge Louboutain nail polish. Priced at $50 USD, you're pretty much paying for the designer name and the most amazingly awesome bottle on this earth.
For those unawares, the red is the same color as the famous soles of the Louboutin heels.

So of course I painted the "soles" of my fingernails red:
The review: It's a great nail polish. You only need one coat and the color is a bright red. In fact, it's my favorite red. In fact, I already own this exact shade in another brand (I've tested it). So if you love the color, but want it for $5-7 bucks, get that. The Louboutin polish is Toxic-Trio-Free. The bottle is quite large, so you do get a lot of it. For those of you who love beautiful bottles and beautiful objects and beautiful design and packagaing, I would recommend. The bottle is pretty amazing. For nail-polish aficionados, I'd say it's a great nail polish. I've read negative reviews saying it goes on thick. I disagree. If someone is used to runny, watery nail polishes, I could see why one would be bothered by the low viscosity--but it doesn't go on "thick." With one thin layer, you've completely coated your nail.
