Nailnation 3000 review No Rest For The Wicked and Glam Bot

Hello all,

Sorry I haven't posted anything in awhile.... Life got hectic for a little bit. I am back now and am going to try and post once a week.

Anyway today I have some Nailnation 3000 polishes to show you... I have shown you one of them before but now I have added some accent nails to go with it :)

So below are the items that I used...
(Left to Right:) NailNaition 3000 - Skunk Base coat, Glam Bot, Striping tape, No Rest For The Wicked  and Seche Vite

First I have to say that I love LoVe LOVE the Skunk Base Coat. Yes it has a funny name but that it because this base coat is stinky... Not so stinky that it will run you out of the room but just enough that I would not recommend sticking up to your nose and taking a big whiff. The smell goes away as it dries leaving no smell at all when it's completely dry. It dries mildly sticky ( not sticky like if you pet your cat your will have furry nails lol but sticky in a good way ) which makes your polish stick to it better. I have soooooooo much less chipping when I use this as my base. 

Let me show you some pictures of the mani then I will tell you about the polishes and how I made this mani:

So obviously I started with the Skunk Base Coat then did a coat of No Rest For The Wicked on my first, middle and pinkie fingers and Glam Bot on the ring and thumb. I used two coats of both colors and waited for them to completely dry. While they were drying I cut my striping tape into pieces and stuck them to my desk for easy access later. After about 20 minutes or so I carefully put the striping tape onto the Glam Bot nails in the pattern I wanted, in this case quilted/squares/windows which ever you want to call it, and then painted one coat of No Rest For The Wicked over the tape. Waited about 15-20 seconds and then started removing the striping tape in the reverse order of which I put them on (last one first and so on). I have found that if you pull the tape off while the polish is still wet, before it gets tacky or dry, that there is much less of a chance to pull up more than what is on the tape. Now that is just what works for me I don't know if that's how you are supposed to do it or not. Again waited for that to be completely dry then topped with a coat of Seche Vite. (Make sure to wrap the tips)

No Rest For The Wicked (priced at $13.00 USD) is a black holo that is just to die for. The holo in it glows whether you are in the sun or not. It's a one to two coater depending on how you like it. I personally always do two coats just to make sure everything is covered (that and I have OCD lol)

Glam Bot (priced at $13.00 USD) is a barbie pink holo that is awesomely bright (but not shockingly bright, She has a couple BRIGHT Pink holos though. Check out her page). Kinda sheer in one coat but completely opaque in two.

I love using striping tape because there are so many uses and designs you can make with it.  I got mine from ebay for like $2 (USD) shipped for 10 rolls.

If you would like to get your hands on or check out any of Maria's AWESOME polish you can find her is a couple different places.
