Tom Ford Burnished Rouge Nail Lacquer

Tom Ford Burnished Rouge Nail Lacquer ($30.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a deep, browned garnet with fine ruby shimmer. Deborah Lippmann Single Ladies is similar but redder, less brown, and it has a cream finish. Dior Apparat is redder. Illamasqua Scarab is very close, though slightly less brown.

This shade applied the best out of the three metallic finished polishes I tried from Tom Ford. It was also fully opaque after two coats.  The consistency was thin but not watery, and the polish flowed fluidly across the nail without bubbling or pooling along the sides.  There were very minimal brush strokes in the end result, too, that were only really noticeable under bright lights.  I didn’t test the wear of this shade specifically, but I did test the wear of Silver Smoke and Burnt Topaz, which have the same finish. Both shades wore for seven days with minor tip wear but no chipping. I do warn that I don’t generally experience chipping no matter the brand or whether I use a top coat/base coat.

P.S. — My bottle arrived with the corner chipped off of it, but luckily, the glass is thick enough that it didn’t break into the actual well.

Burnished Rouge

A-

Burnished Rouge was the best out of the three shades I tested with the metallic finish from Tom Ford's range. It has a very holiday-feel, even though it was launched during spring.

    Fantastic colour !!!

  2. army_wife_in_alaska

    I’ve never gone “WOW!” on a nail polish color before I saw this. It’s unique, rich and beautiful. 

  3. t_zwiggy

    Pretty fall color, but I’d rather get Illamasqua Scarab.

       @t_zwiggy Me too! Scarab is at the top of my nail varnish list.  This TF shade is truly lovely, but I prefer the redder/bordeaux tones of Scarab. Plus, its price doesn’t give me sticker shock.
       

  4. It’s a pretty color but $30 for nail polish….wow! It better last 2 weeks like the gel manicure for that price.

    $30 for a nail polish? Does it have some sort of magical qualities that we are thus far unaware of? Haha! Butter London polishes are like a luxury item for me and they are nowhere near that price.

    this is beautiful but too expensive. I like how it looks in the bottle more than on the nails

  7. I actually like this one slightly more than Illamasqua’s Scarab–but they are definitely close enough for me to be completely happy with Scarab…and the fact that I saved some money. Beautiful though!

  8. Makeup Over Mind

    Gorgeous!

  9. Eli

    That’s so classy!

  10. katherine

    Wow! That color is amazing! This just might be the product that leads me into the Tom Ford lines of makeup. This will be amazing for next fall and holiday.

  11. KRISTANNA

    Tom Fords line remind me everything that was glam about 70s style makeup.

  12. Emme

    It looks fab in the bottle, but a bit too dark on nails for my liking. Plus, the price is a total no go for me.

  13. radiofireworks

    This is way too similar to Illamasqua Scarab – which is about half the price! – for me to justify it. I don’t think I’d ever feel comfortable spending that much money on a single nail polish anyway!

  14. Turq101

    It is a beautiful color, I love it, but it is Way to Expensive for me. 

  15. Apatheticus

    It looks pretty in the bottle, but on the nails it looks exactly like OPI’s I’m Fondue Of You…  a holiday shade that I got on clearance for three bucks last year.
     
    Honestly, I’ll never find it necessary to shell out more than $10 for a polish. Unless it’s something wildly unique like ManGlaze, but even they have some pretty good sales where you can get bottles for $6.66 :P

    @monblogdefille @mesmimines Et mal posé !

    • monblogdefille

      @Tilimarlene la pose n’est pas en question, quand Christine fait des swatches de vernis elle le fait juste pour montrer la couleur.

  17. MissZazou

    @monblogdefille Ouh mais quelle horreur !!

  18. MesMimines

    @monblogdefille J’y ai pensé, mais ça manque de traces de pinceau :D

  19. Wow I love it it looks gorgeous :)

  20. Kate

    Gorgeous, but I just can’t justify $30 for a bottle of nail polish – I can’t even justify $15 for Butter London unless it’s a truly unique color.

  21. DROOL! Between this Autumnal color and the early peeks we’re getting at other Fall collections, I’m already wishing for October!

  22. mymo3132

    @monblogdefille @mesmimines je vote pour!

  23. divinem1

    Gorgeous color but not unique enough to warrant the $30 price tag for me.
