I really have a thing for pink-purple cremes, which is why I splurged on this polish. The color in the bottle is gorgeous and vibrant, but unfortunately it looks a bit dull and less purple on my nails- kind of like any other magenta pink creme out there. The formula was quite thin, almost watery; it definitely needs two (possibly three?) coats for richer color. African Violet left me underwhelmed, especially when Zoya Audrina is a similar (but much more vibrant) color at a fraction of the price.

I was very, very disappointed in Tom Ford nail polishes. I paid over $30 USD for a bottle thinking it must be a great nail polish. Oh, how wrong I was!!! Never again. While I leally ove Tom Ford fragrances, and him in general, I will never again buy anything from his makeup or skincare collection. The nail polish was absolutely nothing special. I didn't like the brush. It was somehow too narrow, and the application was not so easy as with, for example, OPI brushes. The color was nice, but that was it. The staying power on my nails was horribly low -- it chipped after a day. OPI and Essie polishes last much longer than Tom Ford's overpriced nail polishes. The texture was thick, but not that concentrated. I needed at least two coats to achieve the full cover on my nail. Let me tell you that I never apply two coats when using OPI or Essie nail polishes. I felt cheated!

Fazit: No, thanks, and never again.

I agree with the other commentator - love the lipsticks and makeup, but the polishes really disappoint. They dry dull, they all do it seems - all the colors anyway. Perhaps the nudes are better. Even the new coppers dry a different color than in the bottle. BIG disappointment. He needs to find a better formula.

I had high hopes for Tom Fords new beauty line since I have been in love with one of his lipsticks (pure pink) forever. I wore it for my wedding.

This nail polish was a huge disappointment. I was expecting a stunning color and what I got was a boring pale purple that looks like Revlon. Not worth $30. I wonder if the other colors were better. I was supper bummed about this.
