$250,000 per bottle nail polish?


Azature doesn’t call themselves the “king of black diamonds” for anything. The brand is offering none other than a $250,000 bottle of diamond-infused nail polish.

Just in case wearing 100 carats of jewelry wasn’t enough, you can now pack 267 on your fingernails alone. Jewelry brand Azature is breaking the record of the most expensive nail polish in the world with their “Black Diamond” diamond infused lacquer. Luckily if your credit card isn’t black, the brand is offering a $25 alternative for the average folk like you and me. But with this fab nail polish now on the market, the decision to purchase a house just got a little harder and this polish personality essentially solidifies your diva status.
