I die. I don't know what to discuss first and I'm not sure I'm able to type and drool at the same time. But the show must go on, right? So let's begin with the Tom Ford Black Orchid nail polish. 'Member, we told you it was coming last month and a mountain of praise flowed in. It got called "stunning" (by you) and "classic colour meets femme fatale 'tude" (by me). And everyone immediately started adding the rich wine shade to their Wish Lists. Including me. Well it's actually not available for individual purchase, it's part of a set. Which is a bonus, really, as having more Tom Ford in your life can NEVER be a bad thing. Joining Mr. ford's debut nail polish is a revamped Private Blend Lipstick in Black Orchid that's now encased in black and gold. And rounding off this trio of treats is a solid Black Orchid fragrance compact. The sought-after scent features notes of black truffle, ylang, bergamot, blackcurrant, lotus wood, noir gourmand accord, patchouli, vetiver, vanilla and sandalwood. Drop. Dead. Gorgeous. Sigh.
Tom Ford's Black Orchid Collection ($195) is coming to Australia soon.
