Feel like splurging? You can spend your life savings on the new $250,000 Azature nail polish, made with real black diamonds.

Feel like you're missing just the right nail polish to go with that $37,000 black diamond-encrusted Karl Lagerfeldhigh-neck collar you snagged on Net-A-Porter last month?

Well, look no further than luxury jeweler Azature's newest offering. The self-declared "king of black diamonds" is now producing a one-of-a-kind bottle of glitzy, diamond-infused lacquer that will set you back a quarter of a million bucks.

The polish beats out Model's Own $130,000 Gold Rush Couture shade for the coveted title of “most expensive nail polish in the world.” Whereas the gold version merely came in a diamond-encrusted bottle, Azature’s version contains 267 carats in the polish itself. So while you may find yourself in debt for the next decade or two, dahling, your nails will look utterly fabulous!

But just in case you're looking for a slightly more sensible option, the company is also offering a department store version for $25. Or, of course, you can just forgo the black diamond thing entirely and satisfy your manicure cravings with Wet N’ Wild‘s cheap and cheerful $1 "Saved By The Bell" shades. It’s all up to you!
