Burnished Rouge! Tom Ford Nail Lacquer

I'm a huge sucker for deep red anything.  So, once I saw this polish on saks.com, I didn't hesitate to order it.  But the satisfaction of my purchase was quickly short-lived; within a few days,  I received a cancellation email notifying me that this item had sold out. Months had passed, and I was able to put my loss behind me and move on with my life. That is, until one day as I was online shopping at selfridges.com, and found Burnished Rouge was available. With the assistance of the immaculate Kate, I was able to attain this radiant lovely lacquer.



A dazzling blackened-brown based, deep maroon-red, with ruby-red shimmers. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the formula of this lacquer. The application is smooth, streak-free, and opaque after two coats; although, I prefer the look of Burnished Rouge after a third coat. Another pleasant surprise was in the wear time of the polish; Burnished Rouge wore marvelously for six days, before chipping!

Tom Ford Nail Lacquers retail for $30, yes a steep price for a nail polish, but I'm more than satisfied with the results, and I will be purchasing more.

And for those who live in Japan, the Tom ford beauty Lip Colors (¥6,300) and Nail Lacquers(¥3,885) are exclusively available at Hankyu Umeda department store in Osaka.

Have you tried the Tom Ford Nail Lacquer's?

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.


  1. I have this exact same shade too! Plan to open it later, when Christmas/Winter comes... However, weather here just turns 20 degrees, only Autumn temperature... :S

    1. This is a gorgeous shade for the holidays, but I couldn't wait any longer. I had to crack it open :P

  2. The complexity and depth of the shade looks stunning indoors and you really see the beautiful shimmer outdoors. Really gorgeous shade for fall :)

    1. I agree, and I love this polish <3

      How have you been doll?

    1. It is!! Where you able to get your hands on this polish?

  4. DIVINE color!!
    Boo hoo....I don't know how I missed this one when it came out:(
    Trusty old evil bay came to the rescue though!! I just closed my eyes VERY tightly while forking over the inflated payment:((
    So happy to have it now:))))

    1. You have to let me know your thoughts on this polish once you try it!!

    2. Excellent application for a start!
      Not quite as dark as the LMdB Hot & Saucy nor as red as Chanels Malice.
      PERFECT! The classy TF packaging doesn't hurt either:)
      DAMN! I'm so irritated that I gave my Illamasqua Scarab away. I'm sure the shade is very similar to the burnished rouge. I'll need to re-buy the Scarab.

    3. I ordered malice, but haven't gotten my hands on it...Can't wait :)

      Hahaha, I did the exact same thing. I gave scarab to my sister during her last visit here, but I forgot to repurchase it :(

      Guess I'll have to put that on my list!

  5. I already have insatiable lemmings for Tom Ford product, yet another lemming! TF haul, anyone?

    1. If your budget allows, I highly recommend the brand! I purchased the Tom Ford Beauty Fall collection, but I have yet to receive it :(

  6. Very beautiful. Like you, I have a weakness for these sorts of shades and I've yet to try a TF polish...

    1. Hi Kate:)
      Just to let you know that I was strictly 'safe lippie' until I found your blog. The lippies still look better on you, but I'm way more confident with my choices.

    2. Hi Kate, I'd love to know some of your favor deep red polishes :)

    3. Hey Buggsiebee, what's "safe lippie" mean?

  7. I own Plum Noir by TF. I do love it, but must admit it is not my favorite nail polish. :( I too love dark red shades, and own a couple if them (MAC, OPI).

    1. Hi Sara, would love to know some of your favorite dark red polishes!! :D
