Tom Ford Black Jade & Indigo Night Nail Lacquers

Tom Ford Black Jade Nail Lacquer ($32.00 for 0.41 oz.) is a blackened green with subtle neutral-to-cool undertones and a fine lighter green shimmer. It was nearly opaque in a single coat, though I applied two to be sure. The finish was naturally glossy when it dried down, and the coverage was smooth and even. It wore well for seven days on me with very minor tip wear. NARS Shutter (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery. NARS Night Porter (LE, $20.00) is lighter. Dior Amazonia (LE, $24.00) is warmer, less shimmery. Deborah Lippmann Billionaire (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Spring 2015 Le Vernis Nail Colours

Chanel Paradisio (645) Le Vernis Nail Colour ($27.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “pearly pale green.” It’s a very light, warm white with a green-ish tint and metallic shimmer. It had some visible brush strokes, and it had semi-opaque color coverage. I wish it applied more evenly, and it’s a polish that might be better with three coats, though it has a medium-thick consistency so I don’t know about the wear/feel of three coats. Dior Pampille (192) (LE, $24.00) is sheerer. Tom Ford Beauty Vapour (LE, $30.00) is whiter. Essie Absolutely Shore (LE, $8.00) is less shimmery. Butter London Fiver (P, $15.00) is less shimmery, darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Lightness of Being & Modern Movement Nail Lacquers

MAC Lightness of Being Nail Lacquer ($12.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “pale beige.” It’s a light, warm beige with a jelly-cream finish. There’s a plushness to it, while it’s still a milkier color. It had semi-sheer color coverage after two coats (and the polish is thick enough that I don’t think a third will work easily). It’s a little streaky and doesn’t level out completely, unfortunately. I typically get good wear out of MAC’s formula–a week with minor tip wear–but the application on this shade was tricky. Chanel Secret (625) (P, $27.00) is more opaque. MAC Thimbleweed (LE, $16.00) is more opaque. Tom Ford Beauty Sugar Dune (01) (LE, $32.00) is more opaque. Rescue Beauty Lounge Thank You (LE, $20.00) is darker. MAC Sandpiper (LE, $16.00) is a smidgen darker. MAC Muscle Tone (LE, $16.00) is more opaque. MAC Hangin’ Loose (LE, $16.00) is warmer, darker. Chanel Beige Petale (LE, $27.00) is sheerer. Rescue Beauty Lounge Medium White (LE, $20.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
