Nail Polish: Chanel Taboo

As you might already know – I am a huge fan of Chanel nail polishes. And for a good reason. These nail polishes never (or almost never) fail to impress me. Either with gorgeous undupable shades or textures or a hidden shimmer that makes these polishes recognizable. But there is a special Chanel nail polish for meChanel Taboo, a little universe in a bottle. Have you ever seen anything prettier?

Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour ($27.00) features classic and trend-defining shades in an exclusive formula that strengthens and moisturizes nails as it delivers high-shine colour. Applies without streaking.

Chanel Taboo is a limited edition member of the Chanel ‘Revelation de Chanel’ Collection for Spring 2015 that consisted of a single yet one of the most beautiful Chanel nail polishes ever and 10 gorgeous Chanel lip glosses. How much I wish it wasn’t a limited edition item as it is a gem of my nail polish collection, a nail polish I would love to see often on my nails.

Chanel Taboo has the most amazing rich purple ink base filled with a huge amount of pink, purple, red, blue and silver iridescent shimmer that is visible both in a bottle and on the nails. The formula of this particular polish is a bit thicker than usual but it makes it easier to apply it in a single thick coat and instantly reach full opacity.

It goes on easily and evens out on its own. The huge amount of shimmer it contains does not make the surface rough – it still is very smooth and glossy. The beautiful shimmer is visible in any lighting but it looks absolutely marvelous in a direct flash. It lasts for about five days on my nails with the use of base and top coats from Essie (as I use with all my nail polishes). The minor drawback is that the tips of the nails wear off pretty quickly but it is not that noticeable and it does not chip till the end of the wear time at all.

Chanel Taboo totally is a gorgeous nail polish and it looks a lot like a whole universe put in a bottle. It is mesmerizing to look at and a pleasure to have on your nails. This is a perfect nail polish for any occasion and for any season. It is very unique and always receives tons of compliments. Love it!

It is limited edition and I wonder if there any dupes to this gorgeous shade. If you know any – you are very welcome to share them in the comments down below!

Thank you very much for your attention.

Have an amazing day!
