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.

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