Chanel Taboo is one of these polishes that is really difficult to capture the beauty of. OK, a part of me thinks that this polish is a tiny bit hyped-up, but it still is a very beatiful polish that I am happy to own and use.
And that is probably the reason why I chose to publish this inspite of my suboptimal photos. I am convinced that with a more skilled photograph, and some better equipment, it is possible to get much better photos. I suggest that you google for better swatches, you can definitely find them out there :-)
The formula is a bit "gooey" but manageable. If applied richly it can be a one-coater. I used two coats. It is a deep eggplant purple with blurple shiny flecks in the depth.
