And... another week starts, so happy about it, yay!
I was so bored during the weekend and couldn't wait to wake up early and to go work again, if you know what I mean *sticks tongue out*
With his rock'n roll eye shadow duos, Tom Ford's Spring Collection made my heart skip a beat. Love the simple but creative duo chrome light shades and the effect once they are layered over the deeper shades. If you haven't seen my reviews yet, check out all three swatched, Raw Jade, Ripe Plum and Crushed Indigo. The eyes section of the collection blew me away so I decided to pick up the matching nail polishes too. Two of the shades are new, #33 Black Jade and #34 Indigo Night. The third nail polish, Bitter Bitch, is a repromote which I have previously swatched here.

The deep green Tom Ford nail polish is called #33 Black Jade. The name "black" tells it all. If there is a strong light falling on the bottle, you can see the gorgeous deep green shimmer but on the nails it is more a tone of black. The fomula of Black Jade is also a little sheer but it was opaque with two of my generous coats. The photos below are taken with two coats.I found Black Jade also drying a little slower than the other Tom Ford polishes I have. All in all, it is gorgeous and rather unique (check out comparison at the end of the post) but formula wise it is not one of my favorites from the range.

Tom Ford Nail Polish #34 Indigo Night on the other hand has a much better consistency and it is easier to build the opacity. It dries faster. It is a very deep metallic blue which is also a tad blackened but even in the shadow you can understand that it is a tone of blue rather than black. I am wearing this one while typing these lines. I am happy to report that three days at the moment and it is going strong without any tip wear. That said you might have similar shades in your stash, so check out the comparison right after the jump.

It was a hide & seek with sun on the weekend and I am happy that I was able to catch a glimpse of it while I was swatching #34 Indigo Night. Ok, actually I swatched it again after the sun came up, lol, so you see that the nail of my ring finger is shorter because I broke it between swatch one and two.

Here are some similar shades I pulled out from my stash. I was surprised to see that I have quiet a few dark blues with subtle shimmer but I have no other green. All my greens are concentrated in my Illamasqua box, so I swatched here Illamasqua Viridian and Rampage which are both more green than Tom Ford #33 Black Jade which is almost black. Chanel #357 Blue Satin and YSL #17 Bleu Cobalt are both close to Tom Ford #34 Indigo Night. Dior #908 Tuxedo is a tad warmer. Chanel #28 Cosmique is close but rather hard to find. YSL #51 Bleu Cyclades is more blue, Dior #796 Carré Bleu is a straight cream but on the nails it is also close.

Final thoughts: Both of the shades are nice additions to Tom Ford line which never had greens and blues before. I wished that Black Jade would be a little greener and the consistency and drying time could be better. Indigo Night has a nice consistency, it is not too blackened and it lasts long on the nails but the shade is more dupeable. All in all they are both nice to haves but not must haves in my book.
Would you wear these vamp polishes in Spring or would you rather keep them for Fall?
