Essie "Too Taboo" Nail Lacquer

Hi guys!

Here comes "Too Taboo", a fuchsia color that Essie just released with their Summer Neons Collection of the same name.

Now if I found the blue color from the launch - Chills & Thrills - (which I reviewed here) not neon, I find this one to be even less. It's almost the opposite of neon, it's not a bright fuchsia, rather a dusty one.

The formula however was great. Not BEING a neon you could expect that. ;-)

It applied better than your usual Essie polish, really opaque in one coat, I could have left it at that, but I used two, to correct the shape. I used a base coat underneath and also a top coat, since I wanted it to shine more (it dries to a semi-matte finish).

Too Taboo didn't chip quite as much as Chills & Thrills did, but it did start to chip after two days.

While I had a bit of a hard time taking a picture of Chills & Thrills that was true to color, I am happy to report that Too Taboo is pretty much how it appears in my picture!

Now next color I am going to put on is probably going to be the turquoise one!

 Did you pick up Too Taboo? Are you liking it?

I haven´t seen this shade here in the shops yet, but I will definitely check the stores again. This is a beautiful shade for summer

also dem splash of grenadine ist er nicht ähnlich, so wie ich vermutet hatte. daher überlege ich den zu kaufen, weil die farbe wirklich sehr schön ist. aber wenn der nach zwei tagen schon splittert ... hm, dann überlege ich es mir noch.

this is such a gorgeous colour. We don't have anyhting like it, and we don't know why because we love the colour so much. We're going to have to hunt this down, it's perfect for adding some colour, especially in the warmer months. it'd look amazing with a tan too!
