Fall 2016 is all about red or metallic nail polish. Since I am not a huge fan of red nail polish, I am seeking alternatives for the fall season. I love all of the metallic hues being shown for the autumn season, but a girl needs alternatives! When I spotted Black Sugar by Tom Ford, I thought this would be a fabulous alternative to metallic nails!

Tom Ford Black Sugar nail polish is a lot less black than I thought it would be. The name suggests a spicy version of black nail polish, on the contrary! Black Sugar by Tom Ford is a putty-purple hue which has nothing to do with black, and more to do with the berry family!

Berry hues are huge this fall season; groundbreaking, like florals in spring, I know. 😉 Since all shades of burgundy and purple are the rage, nail polish needs to blend, rather than compete, with this color palette. Metallic hues are the ideal neutral for these shades, but metallic polishes are not for everyone, and sometimes we all want a more traditional color on our fingertips.

Tom Ford Black Sugar nail polish is a cross between classic dark purple and dark putty. It is an edgy, neutral form of a muted, dark purple hue. This color works perfectly with this fall’s berry hues; making it a fabulous neutral color for the autumn season and a great alternative to red or metallic nail polish. Love that!

I tested Tom Ford Black Sugar nail polish out with one base coat, two coats of color, and one top coat. The nail polish was long lasting, and stayed chip free for one week. Fabulous!

Tom Ford Blackout is a fabulous new nail polish color from Tom Ford for the winter, and holiday season. This edgy hue is not your average, flat black color! Noooooo, Tom Ford upped the black nail polish game by adding sparkles, and dimension to Blackout. The result is fabulous!

Tom Ford Blackout nail polish is a cream polish, littered with millions of dazzling sparkles. The sparkles are a cool, subtle silver, and they add dimension to the black hue. This makes Blackout a must-have in anyone’s nail polish wardrobe. After all, black is a edgy yet neutral version of classic nail polish.

Throughout the years, black nail polish has drifted in and out of fashion. Although it has it’s popular moments, black nail polish is a classic color which is considered both neutral, and cutting-edge. This makes it an easy shade to wear with any color palette, in any season.

Blackout by Tom Ford is an excellent black nail polish to own. I have noticed Tom Ford nail polish has a strong shelf life. His polish maintains it’s texture, color, and composition while sitting on a shelf, for an extended period of time. One of my pet peeves is when a nail polish has been sitting on a shelf for six months, and it goes bad! Tom Ford does not. It maintains a long life, which is nothing short of fabulous!

I tested out Tom Ford Blackout nail polish with one base coat, two coats of color, and one coat of top coat. The polish applied evenly, without streaking. It also lasted  a full week without chipping. Love that!

I have fallen in love with Tom Ford Blackout nail polish, and I look forward to wearing it throughout the winter 2016, and holiday 2015 seasons!

Tom Ford Viper nail polish for fall 2015

Tom Ford nail polish is one of my favorite nail lacquers. It is long lasting, and comes in the most amazing colors. So when Tom Ford released his fall 2015 beauty collection, I had to get my hands on his fall 2015 nail polish color, Tom Ford Viper.

Tom Ford Viper nail polish appeared to be a deep, dark purple when I looked at it in the bottle. When I began applying the first coat, Viper by Tom Ford took on more of a deep, pinkish burgundy hue. A chameleon nail hue! Love that!

I applied one base coat, two coats of color, and one top coat. I have noticed that Tom Ford Viper nail polish looks like burgundy in artificial light. In the sunlight, it has more of a purplish-burgundy hybrid look, and under florescent lighting, it has a dark, pinkish purple look. Very cool 😉

Tom Ford nail polish is very strong. It is chip-resistant and scratch-resistant. I was able to wear Tom Ford Viper for eight days before removing it. I removed it because my nails grew and I don’t like the look of growing out nails.

I have to credit my favorite top coat for helping this nail polish last so long. You can shop it here, or read my review here.

With Marsala as the color of 2015, nail polish hues which blend well with shades of red, burgundy, and traditional autumn hues, are the ideal colors for nails. Tom Ford Viper nail polish fits this bill with it’s burgundy and purple undertones. Love that!

Tom Ford Viper nail polish will also transition well into the winter season. The winter season has the same color palette as the fall season; with the exception of the holiday season which will feature more bright red than the rest of winter. Tom Ford Viper will blend perfectly with the holiday red’s, and winter’s shades of red, neutrals, and winter whites.
