Help Me, Help You...Tom Ford Show Me The Pink Nail Lacquer


Warning: this is not one of those happy, praising nail polish post. As a matter of fact, this post is anything but favorable for Tom Ford's Nail Lacquer, Show Me The Pink.

Show Me The Pink is right! Even the name forebodes the farce that is this polish. In the bottle, Show Me The Pink is a warm, milky, nudish- pink loaded with silver shimmer; but on the nails its a warm, milky, pinkish peach with silver shimmers, that would rather sparkle in the bottle than on the nails.


I can deal with the shade difference from bottle to nails, but what I can't accept is a horrible formula from a 3,996 yen nail lacquer. Show Me The Pink's formula is thick and a little goopy; thus, making the application problematic, and troublesome, with streaks and unevenness...even after three carefully applied coats, I can still see some unevenness. Whenever I wear Show Me The Pink, I'm always put off by the troublesome application that I haven't bothered to take account of when I begin to experience any chipping; maybe after the third day?

I'm not sure who I loath more: the horror that is Tom Ford's Show Me The Pink Nail Lacquer, or myself for purchasing it! If this polish hadn't cost so much, I would throw it away.

  1. Hey, Lizzy!
    God, I've missed a ton of posts bu exams have been kicking my ass these days...Hope you're doing well what with the typhoons and all. It sounds quite terrifying to be honest O.O
    Anyway, what's this nonsense I hear about not being able to pull of blue shadows due to age? :P

    1. Hello my love,

      Sorry for the delayed response. Apparently, all my comments were being stored away waiting approval or something. Recently, all this rain has really killed all posts, and it's getting on my last nerve! Having leaving in Miami for a long time, I'm a pro at preparing for Hurricanes :)

      Lol, yeah, I'm getting up there in age, and I don't want to be "that" lady on the train who has outlived her expiration date :P

      Miss you

    1. The color is nice, but the formula and application is dreadful!

  3. Congratulations for the honest review, although it is not the first time, as far I can remember! Many beauty blogs are full of "excited, great, excellent, my H.G ". Their reviews are fake and I don't trust them anymore. Hope that you can return it.

    1. Hi Amalia, as I mentioned in a few comments above, I haven't been getting notification of comments on the blog. So, I'm sorry for the delay.

      I'm always 1001% honest in anything and everything, especially when it's related to the blog. Unfortunately, Japan's return policy is nonexistent. I would put it on a blog sale, but I can't ship polishes overseas. Therefore, I may post it on Yahoo auctions Japan or something.

  4. Dear, I like your blog very much, I can get many useful information. Hope that we can communicate with each other. By the way, have you ever used windows 7 clone hard drive ? Unfortunately I lost my partition. I do not know how to do.
