NOTD: Chanel Taboo and Illamasqua Glitterati
Chanel Taboo - what can I say? She is a beauty! Deep red-toned purple with sparks of bright blue and a slight coppery sheen at some angles. Most of the time it's more spectacular in the bottle than it is on the nail, sadly - in most lights it's just a deep burgundy/purple with a reddish sheen, similar to Illamasqua Baptiste, which I already have in my collection. But when it catches the light just right, those bright blue sparks make me fall in love all over again!
Taboo's staying power is excellent, which is why after a few days I got bored and applied Illamasqua Glitterati over the top!
Illamasqua Glitterati is a burgundy jelly with holo sequin glitter. It was limited edition as part of last year's Christmas collection and it was so pretty I couldn't resist! I prefer to layer this polish as it can look a bit uneven and chunky on its own, especially if I apply two or three layers.
