There's a new addition to Chanel's nail polish cult - if you're a fellow devotee, get ready to fall in love!
On counter now, Le Vernis in Taboo is such an attention-grabbingly complex and beautiful shade that you will need it on your fingertips
A mix of warm and cool purple tones, as you peer into the bottle Taboo looks like a mini galaxy all on its own. With swirls of burgundy shimmer in an inky, indigo base, it's shot through with the tiniest flecks of bluish violet, red and pink sparkle.
Deep purple might seem like more an autumn/winter type of shade, but it's easy to see why Chanel has released this now. In the summer sunshine, Taboo bursts into glorious, dazzling light - it's complex and hypnotic and gorgeous.
The formula is pretty close to perfection - not too thick or too thin, it applies effortlessly and is opaque in one coat (though I still gave it two, to be sure). Add a high shine top coat to really make it sing.
Taboo is €22.50 and was designed to compliment the latest lipgloss launch, Collection Révélation de Chanel.
What do you think - are you under its spell?
