So Models Own have created the worlds most expensive nail polish called Gold Rush costing £83,000. The polish is of course, gold. The lid…
…sparkles as if it contains tiny diamonds, yet is absolutely smooth to the touch. The exquisite gold lid is hand-crafted from a solid ingot of yellow gold, and weighs nearly 4 ounces. A total of 1,118 diamonds have been precisely inset weighing over 14 carats of ‘collection’ VVS quality and colours D, E and F.
Oh yes, of course it’s the lid that adds value, not the polish itself. Technically I could stick an 8 carat diamond in my poo and it would be a £100,000 poo.
Now if you want the polish itself with no fancy lid it is just £5 (from the models own site from mid December or Boots from the 23rd Feb 2011).
It does seem ironic that a cheap high street brand should have such bling associated to it. But then again I guess it’s more of a WAG make over than a Grace Kelly one.
Now be honest. If you had won £120 million on Euromillions would you be tempted by this? Is it collectable? A possible future heirloom?
