Faux Taboo and a Comparison

So, I didn't get Chanel Taboo. I felt that I have a lot of great polishes that I can combine to make something that will make me feel that shimmer.

Faux. As it were.
Here's my result:

How did this come about?

Well I was browsing my warm russet berry colors and saw a dupe:

Left: Color Club Dance to the Musique Slow Jam
Right: Haute Browns Black-ish

So, to my eye this is basically the same polish CC Slow Jam has no gold shimmer, however.

A pair of lovely mulberry polishes.
Hello bruddah!

Ok so after that I just decided to see how Color Club Slow Jam would look layered:

Three coats of CC Slow Jam.

A coat each of CND Sapphire Sparkle and CND Amethyst.

This is under diffused light.

Not sure if it's a match, I don't have the Chanel.

The main goal here was to emulate a polish using what I have rather than running out and grabbing a new color. I would next time use CND Crimson, it will pull out the red, which despite the base, doesn't really show up!

Not sure if this is a win. I see one thing when I look at photos of the bottle of Chanel Taboo and quite another when I see photos of it on the nail. Since I don't have it, it's hard to figure how close I actually am in this attempt!

Thanks for reading my little nail polish journal!
