|Tom Ford reds together with other reds from my stash|
Recently Tom Ford released two new nail polishes. #26 Shameless is what you would call classical Hollywood Red. It is a mid toned red, which is a little on the warm side. Application is flawless, great consistency, needed two coats for full opacity.

The phrase "Trophy Wife" must have been given a prize for "mostly used nail polish name". (China Glaze, Essie, now Tom Ford). Do you also have the same feeling?
Trophy Wife of Tom Ford is a polish that I made me gasp after the first brush stroke. The fuchsia sheen in the bottle transfers on to the nails as a gorgeous dimension. It has perfect formula, which covers the nails in one coat. Below I used two coats just to intensify the color a little. I remembered of my first encounter with Chanel's Rouge Carat, which is still one of my absolute favorite reds to date. Trophy Wife has definitely potential to become one too.

I pulled out some reds to check out if I had something close to these, close being meant in a beauty blogger way (everything which are subtly different can be justified to have a place in the stash)

Chanel #595 Rouge Moire is leaning very plum, #541 Tentation is very pink once compared to Trophy Wife. Chanel #587 Rouge Carat is fairly close but a tad darker and warmer.
I was thinking Chanel #581 would be close to Tom Ford Shameless but Shameless turned out to be darker. Chanel #475 Dragon and Dior #999 Rouge are also lighter and a little cooler. Chanel #08 has jelly consistency and is cooler and lighter too. I added the reds of Tom Ford from their permanent collection to see how they relate to the new shades. Tom Ford #15 Smoke Red is more blue based and therefore cooler. As we have seen earlier, Chanel Rouge Rubis and Tom Ford Carnal Red are close in shade but these two are more vibrant once compared to the rest of the bunch.

Final thoughts: Two lovely reds from Tom Ford if you are in search for one this holiday season. Both have great formula but to me Trophy Wife stands out by its beautiful fuchsia sheen and perfect opacity by one coat.
Do you have place for any other reds in your stash or are you bored of them?
