Tainted Love by Signet Nails


Hello and how is everyone doing? Are you ready for some gorgeous blue! I am ALWAYS ready for some gorgeous blue on my nails!



Today, I am wearing Tainted Love by Signet Nails. Tainted Love is part of Signet Nails' Only Love collection that also includes Violet Femme and Out of the Woods.

 I will tell you up front that I have a special affection for this one. I almost won Lauren's Valentine polish naming with the song title of Tainted Love. I am sure all of us remember some cover version of the song. 

She liked the name and although my suggestion didn't win the red polish (that became Kiss Off), she decided to make a new blue using my suggestion. 

As you can see by my photos, Tainted Love is a dark sultry blue with scattered holo. And it is a jelly, which excited me because I have a very limited collection of jellies. 

In two coats I achieved the opacity that I wanted. In the nail art section, I first put on my base of metallic silver and the blue covered it up just fine. 

When dried, the surface does have a slight textural finish. I solved this with two coats of Pure Ice's Girl on the Run topcoat.


Very simple nail art using Tainted Love with Spa Ritual's Silver Shimmer








Had to put in a bottle shot.




Are there any other addicted blue lovers out there and what do you think about this one? I follow a great blog (although she is taking a vacation at the moment) that focuses on blue polish. You should check out Mystery Loves Blue for some beautiful polishes and photos. 

Also don't forget to check out Signet Nails' ETSY shop.

That's all I have for today. Take care and stay warm (it's still really cold here).

  2. Blue is the one color that seemed so foreign to me when I started this nail thing and now I have a hard time not buying everyone I see.
