NAILNATION 3000 MTV Movie Awards exclusive black box celebrity gift trio : Swatches and Review

Hi, my darlings!! I have a super exciting review for you all today! As some of you who follow me on Facebook know, I've recently been accepted as a blogger for Maria of NailNation 3000! SQUEE!! I've loved Maria's polishes, especially her gorgeous holos for a LONG time--in fact, hers were some of the very first indies I splurged on even before ColorSutraa was born! So you can only imagine my excitement at being able to review for her!

Although officially my blog month for NailNation is not til May, Maria was kind enough to include a very special exclusive trio with a recent purchase I made. Are you ready for this? Recently, Maria announced that, as part of The Artisan Group, she would be providing a gift of 3 black box polishes to celebrities attending the MTV Movie Awards...and guess who gets to swatch them for you?! ME! YAY!! On to swatches!

First up, I have for you Shine On Me--a clear topcoat full of 24K gold leaf flakies! The application and formula of this was fabulous--I barely had to swish the brush in the bottle before all these precious flakies came right up! The swatches below show 2 thin coats of Shine On Me over 2 coats of Sinful Colors Black on Black, with 1 thin coat of G&G's HK Girl to finish the look. Now I've never been overly attracted to the gold leaf topcoats but I have to say, I was missing out! I absolutely ADORE how this particular mani turned out!

First up, I have for you Boardwalk Empire--a stunning deep blue polish with a strong linear holographic finish. Again, stellar application and formula--the swatches below are just TWO coats by itself! Such a rich, vibrant shade of blue! LOVE!

With flash!

Last but definitely not the least, I have for you Walk of Fame--a blue-tinted, gray canceling linear holographic topcoat. Great formula and application--I was so impressed with the consistency of this topcoat, not too thick or thin, not at all streaky! Tthe swatches below show 2 thin coats over 2 coats of Orly Cashmere Cardigan on the pointer and ring fingers and just 1 thin coat over 2 coats of Orly Cashmere Cardigan on the middle and pinkie fingers. Maria pays a LOT of attention to her customers and one of the biggest complaints about linear holographic topcoats is that it grays out the polish underneath. Well, not in this case! No graying at all and look at those DOUBLE RAINBOWS!! *gasp*

With flash!

So there you have it, my darlings!!  The stunning celebrity gift trio for the MTV Movie Awards from our very own Maria of NailNation 3000!

  2. All I can say about Walk Of Fame is WOW! I want! I just wish I had the $ right now! *sigh

  3. A hard thing about being famous is that people are always nice to you. And to really enjoy being famous, you need to have a screw loose.
