Chanel Taboo

Why hello there strangers!  Long time no see!  I haven't been posting in a while because I started a new journey and new blog trying to build brain highways with my son :).

I haven't stopped painting my nails though and I just got so excited because yesterday was my birthday (okay now two days ago) and I got the most awesome gift ever from my friend Yvette!  She sent me a bottle of Chanel Taboo!  I have always wanted to get Taboo.  I even told myself that if I ever decided to spend upward to $30 on a bottle of polish it would be Chanel Taboo.  I was so giddy that I had to put it on right away!  And I love it!  It's a little vampy for the middle of summer, but it is gorgeous.  I don't even know how to describe the color it is deep vampy purple with a fiery shimmer and what looks like blue microflakies.  This is pretty much one coat.  Some fingers I dragged a little too much and added a second coat, but if you are careful one coat is more than enough.  The application was a little harder than I thought it would be because the bristles on the Chanel brush is so long that it was little hard to maneuver around my nails.

I hate how I can't capture it's true beauty on my camera phone, but the macro pic gives a little better idea of how complex and pretty this polish is!  This is officially the most expensive bottle of polish I own!  What is yours?
