Chanel did it! They took all the stars in the sky, bottled them up and called it Taboo. This ‘limited edition’ shade is out of this world, with irresistible shimmer that only the people behind Chanel can deliver. The galaxy is now at the ends of our fingertips.
Chanel Taboo is a deep red-toned metallic purple loaded with blue and reddish-copper micro-shimmer. In the bottle, Chanel Taboo is mind-blowing, with a magnitude of multi-colored shimmer. Taboo does not have quite the same effect once applied to the nail, however the look still remains absolutely stunning. In most lighting Taboo is a deep vampy purple with a high-shine and iridescent quality. Taboo’s true beauty really shines in bright sunlight where the shimmer is most visible.
Taboo applies flawlessly and covers in one coat, although two is definitely the recommended. The formula leaves a high-shine finish. The only gripes I have is the tip wear on the second day, followed by some chipping on the third. I am still searching for the perfect top coat for Chanel polishes to extend its wear.(photo taken in bright sunlight) (photo taken indoors, in natural light)
