Urban Decay Vice Nail Polish Review, Swatches (Plus Comparison with Chanel's Taboo!)

With their gunmetal, skull-topped caps, it was love at first sight with these stylin’ new nail laquers, €14 from Urban Decay. The brand will be releasing new polishes each season with the same rockstar good looks that you see here.

Urban Decay Vice Nail Polish Swatches
Excuse my poor dry little fingers - I've been sick and seem to have dried out and shrivelled up in the process!

Happily, what’s inside is every bit as impressive: the formula is fantastic. It glides over the nail with no dragging, and dries quicker than the norm to a shiny, streak free finish. Plus, it’s 5-free (so no formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin and camphor), for those of us worried about those chemical nasties.

The brush is nice and dense and easy to work with, and in two coats you’ve got yourself a gorgeous, glossy autumn mani.  The colour is delicious, too – a rich, luxe purple with both warm and cool toned shimmer.

Hmm. Sound familiar?  

Chanel Taboo and Urban Decay Vice Nail Colour

I recently bumped into Kat from Dolly Rouge, who was rocking Chanel's Taboo on her talons. Now, Taboo is definitely more blingin’, with those little glass flecks really dancing in the light. But the base shade is incredibly similar – and even more so with a layer of YSL’s topcoat from last Christmas, Premier Neige.
