NailNation 3000 Review and Swatches - Wipe Out Transphobia Collection

Are you ready for more NailNation??

I have more from the new collection from NailNation 3000. If you missed my post yesterday - click here - because all the links you need to learn more about what the collection is inspired by are in that post!

There are nine polishes total in the collection. I don't have all nine of them but I have most of them! I will have one or two more posts featuring the remainder of the ones I have. 

Today are my personal favorites from the polishes I have!

(I may go back and re-title the posts (part 1, 2, and etc) because at the start of the posts I wasn't sure how many posts I would need to do to share them all. )

Also - I will have videos of each of these on my Instagram today! Make sure to follow me so you can see these holo beauties in all their glory! I'm @ThatGalJenna!

Okay picture time!

Coats -
All polishes featured today I used two coats. The same formula and application for all of them. And by same I mean...amazing.
Color Intensity -
#WipeOutTransphobia - Wowza! This is a seriously bright and bold purple. The holo is super strong and fabulous in this one! Purple lovers...this is a must have!
#BrownShuga - I'm not normally a fan of brown polishes. They're just terrible on my skin tone but this polish is a lighter brown with this awesome shift in it that makes it more than just a brown polish. This polish changed my mind about brown polishes!
#SisterRoma - Seriously. This shifty wonder is one of the most unique polishes I have in my stash. Indoors I was like...whoa this is different...then I saw all the various color shifts in it and was blown away. It's beautiful indoors and out. The colors all are so complimentary in this AND the holo...OMG. Make sure to come by my instagram to see this in action in the video!

NailNation 3000 Review and Swatches - #MyNameIs and #MyNameIs GlitzTopper

Hello ladies and gents!
(I know there's at least one gent...hey hubs!)

So today I have the start of my posts this week featuring NailNation 3000!

NN3000 is one of my top 5 brands...so many pretty polishes it's ridiculous. 

Maria is releasing five polishes in the Wipe Out Transphobia Collection. Today I have two of them to share with you and I will have the remaining polishes to share with you tomorrow!

If you want more information about the inspiration behind the collection please check out the FB Page and the website. Also if you want to read up on the hashtags and the inspiration behind the polishes you'll see tomorrow - click here.

PS - I have varying ways to wear the topper. I will notate them throughout the post.

In the photo above the Glitz Topper is layered over #MyNameIs - two coats
In the photos featuring both polishes - Glitz Topper is used alone without a base polish - 2 coats
**outdoors - direct sun**
 
In the photo above Glitz Topper is on top of #MyNameIs - in this case - only one coat is used
Photos below - Glitz Topper is worn alone without a base - 2 coats
   
Coats -
#MyNameIs - Two coats. Perfect formula. Zero issues!
#MyNameIs Glitz Topper - Two coats to opacity without a base, one coat over a base color for light coverage, and two coats over a base color for full coverage but it will be darker if used over a base.
Color Intensity -
I love both of these polishes. Worn alone #MyNameIs is this beautiful subtle purple holo but then paired with the Glitz Topper...it's like...whoa! I also LOVE the topper worn on it's own! So cute and full of sparkle!

Mystic Muse Nail Lacquer Review and Swatches - Cathedral Collection

Hey guys!

I hope you enjoyed seeing Witchy from Mystic Muse Nail Lacquer yesterday!

Today I have the Cathedral Collection to share with you! I love the inspiration behind this collection.

Cathedrals at night lit by the candles and moonlight. If that doesn't sound hauntingly beautiful I don't know what does!

My review of each polish will be at the end of the post!

So let's get to it shall we?


(cool, dark indigo blue, with a slight light blue frost that can be seen when the light hits it)
 
**outdoors - direct sun**
   
(hauntingly beautiful duochrome in shades of teal and blue)

  
 

(smoky slate grey, with slight undertones of plum with metallic flecks of rich, warm copper)


**outdoors - direct sun**

  

(classic copper glitter bomb topcoat) 
  
Above - over Lady Katrina - clear gloss top coat on left and matte top coat on the right
Below - over Cathedral - clear gloss top on left and matte on the right
  
Above - Vintage Copper - 2 coats over Cathedral
 
Coats -
Sinister - Three thin coats. This is more of a jelly formula but is easily opaque in three thin coats.
Lady Katrina - Two coats
Cathedral - Two coats
Vintage Copper - Gradients lightly dabbed on. One coat on index finger fingers. Two coats over thumb.
Color Intensity -
Sinister - This is such a dark and lovely deep navy. The shimmer in the polish adds so much depth. The application was easy peasy also. No staining.
 Lady Katrina - Duochrome polishes aren't really my fave but the colors in this are SO vibrant and bright. It's a little more frosty than I prefer but the colors in this win for me so I'm still loving it. It's a super bold color and I love that! Application was swell. A little brush stroke-y (because that's a word) due to the finish but nothing that will stop me from wearing.
Cathedral - I love this one! It leans brown and plum depending on the light. Since I'm not wild about brown the plum in this really makes this wearable for me. Super wearable because I LOVE it. And the gold flecks in it?
Vintage Copper - I don't really enjoy glitter toppers. But listen. I saw this in the bottle and swooned. I'm not nail art savvy so here's hoping I pulled off the glitter gradient. I'm lucky because Vintage Copper looks freaking amazing over Lady Katrina! I love it over Cathedral too...it's the more subtle use of it...I love how each polishes look with the topper. LOVE!
Top Coat - HK Girl 
Base CoatLiquid Lacquer base coat  

I hope you enjoyed the introduction to Mystic Muse the last couple of days!

There is lots more to come from the brand and I can't wait to see!

Do you have a favorite from the collection?
