Nails have been adorned and colored since the times of the Roman Empire, and perhaps even earlier. Cosmetics have now assumed a different role and have actually become luxurious products from creams to lipsticks – so how could the nail polish stay away from becoming a prized commodity? Mixed in with crystals and diamonds, nail polishes have assumed a different ‘glamor’ altogether and to become the proud possessor of one, you would really have to dole out thousands and even millions of dollars.
With a quarter of a million dollars, you could buy a lot of things.
You could purchase a home, a super-fancy car or a college education for your kids.Or, if you’re feeling a little more adventurous, you could always go on a shopping spree at Hammacher Schlemmer and buy that submarine shaped like a killer whale that you’ve always wanted.
But if you already have all these things and just can’t imagine what you’re going to do with that $250,000 in loose change you have lying around, then this uber-splurge item might just be for you.
Containing 267 carats of black diamonds, this luxe lacquer will set buyers back a quarter of a million dollars.
The Hollywood-based Azature, whose jewelry has adorned stars such as Rihanna and Beyonce, has called the black diamond the “ultimate fine jewel.”
A nail polish released by Models Own was priced at $132,000. It has been blown out of the water now that Black Diamond has arrived.
The product, which contained 1,118 diamonds, was priced at $132, 800, which set a new record for the most expensive nail polish in the world.
It also featured a hand-crafted lid made from yellow gold.
Beauty fans showed their passion for nail polish by taking to the auction site eBay in order to purchase the almost impossible-to-get Black Spotted polish by OPI.
Because it only sells in France, French owners of the product are able to price the varnish for up to $70 per bottle.
This golden hued nail polish will definitely have people gazing at your glittering nails as they shine like diamonds on a platter of gold. This uber expensive nail polish features a gold lid that is handmade and encrusted with 1,118 diamonds.
For the other 99% of the world who wouldn’t be able to afford the crazy price tag, Azature is also making a polish that will contain a black diamond and retail for $25. After testing out the polish ourselves and realizing it seems to be a clear polish with black glitter (with the added benefit of saying we have diamonds on our nails), we’re not exactly sold on spending a week’s worth of Starbucks on the lacquer.
