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.

 Indoors.

 Sunlight. 


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.

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

    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!

    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.
      Merci:))

  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).
