You know when a product is so cult that it doesn’t really need a title other than the most basic name? Well, that, about this. Taboo is heading for Chanel history along with Rouge Noir, Particuliere and Peridot.
It’s already launched in the US; annoyingly it doesn’t arrive in the UK til June 28th – but it IS coming, so that’s something. There are some incredible reviews of this – bloggers Stateside are loving it; I haven’t seen one negative review.
It’s a very grown-up version of Max Factor Fantasy Fire (which, if you remember, was based on the Clarins 230 nail polish that commands a fortune on Ebay for the few remaining bottles in existence). You can see a good swatch of both HERE.
The best swatches I’ve found for Taboo are HERE. The polish is a complex mix of silver, blue and purple micro-sparkles in a purple base that gives it reddish tones. On the nail, it looks like a shimmer shot deep purple, but it’s not a pure colour – it will change with the light or from different angles. Hurry up, Chanel!

OMG I adore it! I have an impressive collection of nail polish- I simply can’t resist I have to have different shades, mate or shimmering! Fit for day or night, summer or winter! But this Chanel Taboo is really something special: I have to have it!:)
Holy moly! That is a beauty. I don’t often get seduced by expensive nail polishes, but I think this is one I might just have to buy.
Good to hear it’s coming to the UK eventually. I definitely want it!
Wow this looks absolutely beautiful! Sure to be a sell out xx
It looks great – wish Chanel could launch their products at the same time. Feel like the Bridesmaid and never the bride her in the UK.
The one Chanel(frenzy) polish I have is fab and was worth the money in terms of colour and application – this makes me think of Opi “every month is Oktoberfest” possible budget dupe??
I wish I didn’t see this!! I WANT!!!!!
Oh wow, look at that colour. Deep and sultry and with just the right sparkle. I must try.
I am so grateful that I already have my hands on it! Although my swatches are taken indoor at night, with flash, I still think it looks awesome! It’s become an instant favorite 😀
Thank goodness, I am fed up with asking at Chanel counters only to be told its a US exclusive and not to be ‘silly’
I have never owned a Chanel polish but I just have to have this!!!!
Thank goodness I have time to save up for it so it’s not too much of a gulp moment when I hand over the cash.
I read June too. But I spoke to a someone on a Chanel counter at the weekend and she said it’s coming *after* the summer collection – they think in September. Don’t think I can wait that long!
oohh this has sneakily made its way onto my wishlist! x I need to stop reading blog posts haha!

The Chanel boutique in Bond Street has it already. I got mine sent to me from them a couple of weeks ago! I have to say I was a bit disappointed by it. Looks fab in the bottle but just looks like a deep purple shimmer on the nail!
