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.

 @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.
 

$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.

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!

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.

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!

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 😛

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

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.
