Chanel Taboo

natural light

I only own a few Chanel polishes but have been more than pleased with them...until this one. I hate to start off on a negative note, but this polish is nothing like I thought it would be. I get that from time to time but this was surprising to me. I immediately knew it would be mine when I spotted it in the display. It was unlike anything I had. Well, I'll let you be the judge if you think the color in the bottle looks like the nails or maybe it's just me.

A little hard to describe - in the bottle I would have said a deep burgundy metallic with purple and pink micro glitter. On the nails, it looks straight up like a deep purple. {I have deep purples. Several I really like, too. Didn't need another.} It applied nicely in two coats. It was a tad hard to keep clean around some of the cuticles since it's so dark. It looked navy blue on the cotton pad when I removed it. Oh, and it chipped on two nails within two days. Is this review crazy enough for you yet, lol? It's a beautiful color, I was just hoping for the color in the bottle.

  1. How gorgeous!! I need this in my collection. I do wish the color in the bottle translated to the same on the nail.

  2. Ohhh that's lovely! Yes not quite the same as the bottle but can still see the glitter on your nails, it looks amazing
