Chanel Taboo

Today I am VERY excited to show you my latest addition to the collection - Chanel Taboo. I had a biopsy today and decided I needed a pick-me-up and boy am I glad I made that decision!

As a comparison, Taboo is along the lines of OPI's Every Month is Oktoberfest. the first coat has a similar dark blue hue. Taboo turns out to be a more saturated purple though.

It also has a faint magenta and blue fleck to it which is really pretty. The fleck isn't apparent unless you catch it in the right light. If you look at the edge of the bottle and my index finger you can see what I mean.

As usual, the formula is great. This could actually be a one coater if you wanted but I always prefer two.

What do you think? Will you be investing in Taboo?

Lovely Liquid Lacquer! (Hello Aliteration)

Happy friday sunday friends! I started writing this a month ago on a friday and had trouble getting my pictures to upload and then totally got sidetracked.

Today I'm going to do a quick post about my fav indie brand, Liquid Lacquer. Keep up-to-date with the brand and upcoming sales on LL's Facebook page here: www.facebook.com/liquidlacquer

Aaaannd without further delay, the polish!

Sound of My Heart - a super pretty glitter polish with a shimmery pinkish purple base. The glitter has hearts in it too! This is two coats of Sound of My Heart over OPI Done Out In Deco.

Sexy Secretary - a gorgeous taupe/grey creme with a bronzed orange glitter. I LOVE this polish. This is two coats.

Lounging Lily - a calm waters turquoise color with an unbelievable pink shimmer. This is two coats and a MUST HAVE. One picture without flash and one with to try and capture the shimmer.

Cherries In The Snow - a white creme base with pretty, magenta glitter...and circle glitter at that! This is two coats.

And last but not least (for this post), Cranberry Fields Forever - this is an OOAK polish with a dusty, chocolate brown, creme base and more of the super pretty magenta circle glitter! I love this polish and I love me a good Beatles reference.

I have a bunch more LL polishes that I'll save for another day but this is a brand you need to check out for sure!
