Today's NOTD is the highly anticipated Limited Edition polish from Chanel - "Taboo". This was released in the UK on 28.06.13 and I headed straight to my local Chanel counter to grab a bottle! I've been eagerly waiting for this to come out since I saw the promo swatches in February.

All in all I'm not sure that I'd recommend paying £18 for this polish. It is lovely, but it's one of those dissapointing polishes that looks so much prettier in the bottle that on the nail. Unless you can walk around in permanently sunny conditions, or with a camera flash pinging off you nails, then you won't see a lot of evidence of all that lovely shimmer.
Perhaps I'm just sad because I waited so so long for this to finally get its UK release. The previous Ltd Edition shade "Malice" is one of my favourite polishes ever, probably in my top 3, but I don't think its sister shade Taboo will make the top 10....
The next day the sun obliged me by popping out for a few minutes so I took a picture of Taboo in the sun. You can see here that there is a but more evidence of those shimmer particles, but still nowhere near the sparkle power of Malice. You can also see the significant tip wear - this was after just one day (although admittedly I did do my cleaning in this...but I do wear marigolds!)
