chanel tabooChanel Taboo is simply one of the most beautiful dark nail polishes available and although Taboo has already made an appearance on my personal blog, I couldn’t resist showing it here too.The shade is so beautiful – it deserves a double feature!

When it comes to producing ‘it’ polishes, Chanel leads the way. Think Peridot, Graphite or Boy, each one started a whole new trend. And even though Chanel has already shown us a glimpse of what’s coming next, Cosmic and Magic, if I had to choose the next trend in nail polish, I’d point to Chanel Taboo.

For more details on this superb this polish, read our full review below.

chanel taboo swatcheschanel taboo nail polish REVIEW:

Formula:  Highly pigmented, fast-drying, 3-Free formula that goes on nails smoothly.

Brush: Great brush, easy to use.

Application: Thick, dense, yet very easy to apply – 1 coat is enough (pictured).

Finish: glossy creme, with a red to black holographic effect. The purple and silver glitter particles are very fine.

Wearability: In general, Chanel polishes don’t last. Best case scenario (with base and top coat applied) they’ll last 2 days chip free.

Nail Art: Perfect for any type of nails art.

chanel tabooOverall Impression: If you’re after a statement dark shade with a touch of mystery, Chanel Taboo is your polish. It is relatively expensive but also quite economical because it gives a perfect finish with a single coat.  Just keep in mind that, as beautiful as it is, it’s not a long lasting polish.

Availability: via Nordstrom, Chanel Taboo AUS $30.35 here or in selected Chanel Beauty boutiques.

How do you like Chanel Taboo? Have you tried it yet?

PS. We have a new series launching on Monday, so come back tomorrow and check it out!

    I had this polish on my nails last week for the first time, it’s absolutely beautiful! It indeed chipped really fast, which is unfortunate because with the dark color you can see the chips more easily. I’m also a little disappointed that you couldn’t the red flakes like in the bottle, but I still love it!
