Tom Ford Metallic Nail Polish: Beauty Review
I viewed the colors online and saw that Tom Ford has a limited release of four metallic nail lacquers for Spring 2012. The colors are Silver Smoke, Burnished Rouge, Golden Haze, and Burnt Topaz. Online, I thought Silver Smoke would best suite me to buy today, but once I made it down to Neiman Marcus and tried all four colors out, it was obvious I loved Burnished Rouge the best on me.
I walked down to a nail salon and had a manicure/pedicure. Once the nail lady started painting my toes, I was in complete awe over the application of the nail lacquer. It went on so easily and smooth the first time without multiple brushes to get rid of the chunks. Burnished Rouge went on like metal and left no visible brush strokes. The girl next to me getting her nails done as well as the lady doing her nails were just watching my toes being painted and both complimented the color and asked where I got it from! Two thick coats left my nails with a hint of gold and a gorgeous, yet subtle metallic look on my nails.
To my surprised it literally dried in MINUTES and I was out the door. I spent less than 5 minutes under the nail dryer before rummaging through my purse to find my phone to take pictures of how beautifully it ended up. I was a little hesitant to how dark the color was considering it was a "Limited Spring Edition", but I absolutely adore this color and will probably spend the entire season sporting it!
I know now I can never go wrong with a Tom Ford nail lacquer even at $30 a pop...frankly, I don't think anyone could ever go wrong with it!
