Chanel Taboo

Hey guys!

Here's a lemming fulfilled :) Chanel Taboo is so beautiful. You guys know I'm not opposed to dropping a bit more than usual if I really like the polish (Lynns, I'm looking at you) but for some reason, I didn't want to drop $27 for this one. I went to the mall earlier with my mom so she could pick out an early Mother's Day gift (she's picky) and of course we wound up in Lord & Taylor. My mom's addiction is perfume and her expensive taste brought us to the Chanel counter. She picked out Chanel No. 5 as her present, and because I did such a selfless thing in buying it for her, I treated myself with Chanel Taboo. I regret nothing...right now. I'm sure my bank statement will cause some regret but, meh. Life's too short to not do what you want, right?

Anyway, this polish is SO difficult to capture accurately. Holy crap, is she pretty, but she doesn't like pictures. Both my mother and I gasped when we saw her in the sun. Breathtaking. A pain in the ass to capture on camera, but still breathtaking. Here's some attempts:

Shade with Flash
The formula on this was wonderful. As it should be, it costs way to much for a bottle. This is 3 OPI bottles...Anyway, I love it but I hate that pictures don't show the blue shimmer that makes this so unique. The base of this reminds me of OPI Every Month is Oktoberfest. It's not the same but they remind me of each other. You can see an AWESOME comparison of the two by Gotham Polish HERE.

What do you think? Do you like this polish? Is it worth the $27 to you, or am I just crazy? Let me know, thanks for reading! :D

You've Seen These Before...

Hey girlies! So unless you've been off of the internet for these past few months, you've seen something similar to the nails I'm going to show you. They've been floating around Pinterest and Instagram for so long. I won't post the original picture because I don't have a website to link it to. I will say, however, that I found who the nails belong to! Her Instagram name is @selenadee_nails and her work is AWESOME! I've recreated her infamous (I say infamous because boy oh boy has it been stolen a million times) mani and added a b&w glitter to the pink nails. Here's the look:

I used chevron decals from Make it Stick. They were kinda tricky to apply but I like the effect. I used Color Club Warhol and China Glaze Glistening Snow.

What do you think? Do you like this manicure? Let me know, thanks for reading! :D

Hare Polish Let Them Eat...What?


So I've been MIA because my nails suck atm...I've been posting on instagram because I feel as though I can get away with it because the pictures are tiny on my phone...but even so I stopped posting my nails on there too. It's my stupid eczema... elgh. ANYWAY, I've been trying to up my indie collection. I'll get into why a bit later.

I decided to get some Hare polishes off of Llarowe. I wanted Roccoco Grandeur but they were sold out *pout* but I did get 5 really awesome ones. One of which is Let Them Eat...What? 

LTE...W? is awesome. It's a creamy, off-white base with bright orange, pink, gold, and satin white glitters. It's so friggen gorgeous. I layered 2 coats of it over 2 coats of Orly Powder Puff. The Orly is really streaky but the Hare covered that. Here's the pictures:

Bottle Close Up
I tried to take a close up picture of the bottle! :) Let me know if that helps any.

The formula on this At first stroke it was beautiful. The next nail, it was goopy as hell. After that I had to mix it between nails... I don't know what's going on. It's so pretty though, so it's worth it.

How do you like the polish? I LOVE it. Let me know, thanks for reading! :)
