Tom Ford has some really stunning beauty products. So stunning, that even though they’re pricey, I can’t seem to stay away. Rather recently, a new Nail Lacquer shade launched in Black Sugar. As you can see below, it appears to be very beautiful and very unique. I wasn’t able to find many reviews, but they all seemed pretty positive and from pictures Black Sugar appeared to be almost like a chameleon of color.
What Neiman Marcus says about Tom Ford Nail Lacquer:
To Tom Ford, every detail counts. This extra-amplified, gloss and shine nail lacquer, in a wardrobe of shades from alluring brights to chic neutrals, lets you express your mood and complete your look. Its groundbreaking, high-performance formula with bendable coating delivers high coverage and shine while staying color true throughout wear.
Black Sugar has a creamy plummy taupe base and a fiery mix of very subtle red, copper and golden shimmer. As far as formula goes it was pretty thin and I needed three coats for full and even opacity. The shimmer is subtle to the point of non-existence unless you’re really trying and oddly the next day it wasn’t visible at all. The plum taupe shade itself is pretty, but a dime-a-dozen and available at a much cheaper price point within just about every brand you can think of. Oh, how I wish it’d have really made that gorgeous shimmer visible… can you even imagine?
For the price point, I expected it to be at the very least on par with Chanel or Dior. Being that it’s more expensive than those designer brands it really should’ve been even better.
