Nail Nation 3000 SPAM Post!

Good morning all!  I've been home with a sick kid these last 2 days and I swear I have gotten nothing done.  I'm really just hoping that the flu doesn't get passed to anyone else because we are supposed to go on a short trip next week and I would hate to cancel it.  So fingers crossed and everyone is drinking Tamiflu.  But while I am dealing with a sicko I can still share nail posts with you so for today I have some Nail Nation 3000 SPAM!  I haven't done a SPAM post or a NN3000 post for that matter in quite a long time.  I received these beauties last year for my birthday from some wonderful ladies!  I can't believe I hadn't tried them until now, embarrassing!  I don't think that any of these polishes are available any longer but there is a huge selection of polish to chose from so I'm sure you will find something to love.  Anywho, enough gabbing for now.  Let's look at polish!

Babbling Brook is an aqua leaning blue polish with a soft linear holo.  It's got just a little purple shift to it.  The formula and application of Babbling Brook were both really nice.  I reached full coverage in 3 coats and finished with a layer of topcoat.

Holo in Tandem is a gorgeous cornflower blue with pink shimmer.  I was totally wowed by this one.  The formula was a touch sheer with the first coat but it built up beautifully with no issues.  I used 3 coats of Holo in Tandem and finished with a layer of topcoat.

Fuchsia Holo Glam is another stunner!  I don't recall seeing any Holo Gasms listed but if you do see one pop up in the shop get it....they are fantastic!  It's a full coverage fuchsia and silver holo glitter.  This baby has some uber bling.  Fuchsia Holo Gasm had a fabulous formula and covered perfectly in 2 coats.  I finished with a layer of topcoat but you probably want to use something thicker like Gelous to smooth things up nicely.

Under My Thumb is a soft purple and multi-colored holo microglitter.  This is another super sparkly, blingy polish.  Like most microglitters you can wear this alone in a few coats or 1 layer over a base color.  Since I wanted to show off the actual polish I am showing it alone.  The formula and application were good, easy to work with.  The glitter spreads nicely and didn't leave bare spots on my tips like some microglitters do.  I used 3 coats of Under My Thumb and 1 layer of topcoat.

For this mani I have on 2 NN3000 polishes.  Grape Escape Color Tint and Shock Pink Color Tint.  They are colored holo topcoats that don't cause a greying effect.  They are gorgeous colors to start with and the fact that I can use them to top off nail art is exciting to me!  I did something easy just to see how they worked and I really liked them both alot!  I started with a base of white, then used 3 coats of both Grape Escape and Shock Pink.  I also sponged a gradient on my accent nail.  You can see the accent nail is lighter in color but the tints both did a great job with the gradient.  They were easy to use and had a really lovely formula.  I finished with a lyer of topcoat.  Sadly I forgot to take macros of this mani, sigh.
