Hairy Legs London Tainted Love swatches

Hello and happy October, autumn is full on and I am celebrating this month with indie polishes, yes the whole month you will see only indie nail polish swatches in this blog- with and without nail art. I have few indies from USA and Australia, however most importantly I have LOTS and LOTS of indies from our lovely UK. Without further ado let me present you Hairy Legs London Tainted Love swatches.

Hairy-legs-london-tainted-love-swatches (8)Hairy Legs London is, as the name indicates, UK/London based indie polish maker. I actually ordered another polish and got Tainted Love as a gift and ended up loving it so much that I decided to give it the honor to open up my Indie Polish Month :) Tainted Love is a gorgeous mixture of magical color-shift pigment, iridescent purple glitters, metallic fuchsia glitter dots, red holographic glitter, red holographic hearts, black glitter and tiny black bar glitter. It is tinted slightly purple and therefore I decided to match it up with a purple base color- Essie Sexy Divide.

Sexy Divide is a gorgeous dark purple with shimmery finish, in the bottle there is actually some orange duo chrome effect, however it doesn’t transfer to the nail. I applied two coats of the polish and achieved the perfect opaqueness. I then added just one coat of Tainted Love and hand placed the holographic hearts as they needed a bit of fishing, which is normal with larger glitter.

I am feeling extremely lucky to be the owner of this beauty as Tainted Love is limited edition and there are only 2 left in the shop- the color shifting pigment has been discontinued and therefore this polish will never be made again… which is sad because the polish is amazing and the colors are just gorgeous, I love it!!!

Thanks for reading and I hope that you all are as excited as me about the Indie Polish Month! :D

P.S. Sorry about the paper cut on my ring finger, that’s the hardship of student life :(
