Chanel le vernis taboo 583


Chanel recently released another small collection and this time it’s all about lipglosses and a nail polish. It’s not just any nail polish though, no. This little gem looks like it has the entire galaxy in a bottle. It is so pretty, complex and stunning to look at, Chanel really did it again!  Now I don’t know what is such a taboo about ‘Taboo’ because in my opinion everyone should know about this beauty! it’s interesting to see it being released at this time of year and it’s nice and refreshing to see. I always love summer collections but a stunner like Taboo is a welcome sight!

Chanel nail polishes are really getting to me. I wasn’t very convinced at first. Like why do I want to spend 23 euro on a nail polish?  Let’s forward to a good half year and here we are. Chanel does amazing colours and they are great at setting trends in the land of nail polish. Graphite, Peridot, Paradoxal anyone? Chanel nail polishes come in a big square bottle of 13 ml and they go for 23 euro. Now that is actually not that expensive if you compare it to other high-end brands. The only minor thing about the nail polish is the classic brush, I am not the best with it but I know some people love it. Take a look at Chanel’s pretty selection of nail polishes because they really do carry some unique stunning shades.

Taboo 583 has a very dark deep purple base. It’s infused with different sized shimmers going from electrifying blue, to intense red to glowing purple. Taboo is not just a shade, there is so much dimension to it and you could just stare at it for hours. The overall effect on me is rather purple with hints of blue and red. I’ve seen how it looks more red on others, but on me it really is a deep shimmering purple. It becomes even prettier in the sunlight. You will see the deeper layers glow and sparkle in the light and just like that you have the entire galaxy on your nails. Taboo has a gorgeous formula, it is pigmented in just one layer and you can make it more intense with two layers. It is not too thick either and it dries down really nicely.

It will come to no one’s surprise that Taboo quickly became a rage on the beautyblogs. I can not fault it, it is beautiful and the formula is perfect. I don’t have anything even close to Taboo, it’s an interesting mix of blue, purple and red. Taboo is just pretty for any occasion, use it to vamp up your outfit for the night or you can even wear it over day. It’s an easy colour to wear, it doesn’t scream for attention but it will catch the attention of those who have an eye for a beauty like this. You can find Taboo now in the stores, take a look at it, it is a dreamy deep wonderful shade!

  1. Heel mooi kleur, maar voor mij toch iets meer voor herfst/winter!
    Prachtige foto’s heb je gemaakt!

  2. looks very much like vendetta from Chanel but with more shimmers. Beautiful but for me more for fall or winter.

  3. Ziet er mooi uit maar in het flesje vond ik hem nog net iets spectaculairder eruit zien, zo galaxy :)

  4. I fell in love with this one, too! It’s so different! Those sparkles! *happy sigh*

  5. It’s so beautiful! I was really wowed by this shade. Chanel does have a talent at creating incredible polishes. I didn’t think I would ever succumb to it but once I did I was hooked! It look really gorgeous on you skin tone, I love the deep purple.

  6. Oh waw! Wat een mooie kleur. Eindelijk nog eens een nagellak waarvan ik denk: dié heb ik nog niet eerder gezien!

  7. I have a boyfriend and I love him, but I think I might have to start a secret love affair with this nail polish. It is SO gorgeous :-O

  8. This shade looks amazing. Chanel does come up with really pretty nail colours, and I don’t know why I haven’t tried it yet. I always find something more exciting than nail polishes. LOL!

  9. Omg, prachtig! Heerlijk dat holografisch effect!

  10. Ik had hem mooier gevonden als hij roder was geweest (zoals in het flesje)

  11. Wat een prachtig lakje!!

  12. Het is gewoon….fan-tas-tisch mooi!!! Een schot in de roos!

  13. That complex shimmer is incredible!!! You pictures really captures the beauty of this one. I try to indulge in just a few Chanel polishes because they don’t play nice with my nails (chips immediately), but this one is so so tempting!

  14. De shimmers erin zijn gorgeous, maar ook de iets grovere glitter is lovely. De kleur .. de finish. Oh my god, waarom zijn Chanel nagellakken zo ontzettend mooi?! Schitterende lak Teri!

  15. Wat een supermooie kleur! Echt heel speciaal, waw!

  16. Op je nagels is hij precies iets donkerder paars dan in het flesje :) maar dan nog: het blijft echt zo’n prachtige kleur! :D

  17. Prachtig!! Ik zag het al in de winkel liggen, maar ik heb het toch laten staan. Ik heb er nu wel spijt van haha!

  18. this nail polish looks amazing, I definitely would spend 23 euro on this colour, it also is just right up my alley xxx

  19. it’s so beautiful! really need to get this one myself

  20. Ik het een prachtige kleur! Erg mooi met die shimmers erin: je blijft ernaar kijken ;-) Hoe is de kwaliteit van de nagellak van Chanel? Ik zie met enig regelmaat mooie kleuren van Chanel voorbijkomen, maar ik twijfel nog i.v.m. de prijs. Wanneer de kwaliteit goed is, wordt de stap om het te kopen iets gemakkelijker ;-)

  21. Wow this looks gorgeous. I do like purple nails, and this is something I’d definitely wear.

  22. Erg mooi! Ik wil hem wel eens in het echt bewonderen in de parfumerie <3

  23. Aparate kleur maar wel erg mooi !

  24. wauw wat een prachtigerd is dit!

  25. heel speciale schakeringen zitten er in :)
