Um, this bottle of nail polish costs $250,000. WUT?

Azature Black Diamond Nail Polish

Just in case you were, you know, short on ideas for how to spend that spare $250,000 you had lying around. (That’s USD, BTW.)

A company called Azature have just come out with this, the world’s most expensive nail polish—and that’s because it contains 267 carats of black diamonds. That’s right. IN the polish itself.

I don’t know about you, but to me this doesn’t make too much sense when you could buy, say, this dupe from Sally Hansen (it’s actually called Black Diamond) and then use all the cash you saved for… I don’t know… some REAL black diamond jewellery?

Of course, the people at Azature are no dummies—they’re also selling a $25 department store version (it’ll be avail at Fred Segal in the States), which I guess is like getting cubic zirconia? Or something.

The crazy part is that this isn’t even the first brand to come out with “the world’s most expensive nail polish.” A couple years back, Model’s Own held the title with their $130,000 Gold Rush polish—but that was just a diamond-encrusted bottle. (Sillies! What were they thinking?!)

Oh, beauty industry. Never change.

Do you think it’s obscene to sell a $250,000 nail polish?
Would you buy it for $25 though?
Price tag aside, how do you feel about this sparkly black shade?

If anyone actually buys this then they deserve a swift kick to the butt!!! Think what a $250,000 donation to charity could do. Don’t get me wrong, we all love a little luxury in our lives but this is obscene.

Sadly, a ridiculous as this seems, I can definitely imagine some celebrity’s kid wearing this. Like Willow Smith or one of the younger Kardashian sisters (heck – maybe even the Kardashian mother).

Things like these make me realize what is wrong with the world, first the diamond studded victorias secret bra now this. All these things are not necessities and are luxury (useless) items. Wouldn’t you feel a lot better feeding a village with that money? I know I would.

Um, I would not buy a bottle of nail polish for more than ~$5. It’s freakin’ paint. For. Your. Nails. Even for lower end fancy manicures I think it’s totally dumb to spend time/$$$ on YOUR NAILS, which get down and dirty everyday. Unless you’re a princess, I guess? But even princesses do some gardening, right?
