|NailNation3000 bottles from the bottom.|
The bottles are cute, but the lids are a bit big and awkward to hold. I didn't have much of a problem painting with them, but the lid did slip out of my fingers due to its size once or twice (minor rug casualties). The brush was bigger than I would expect with a squat bottle, but that meant it only took me 2-3 strokes total to cover my nails (one for the pinkie). After I finished painting, I noticed the lids could be pulled up and off to reveal a smaller, much easier to handle black brush lid (D'oh!):

I wish I had noticed that sooner! My rug may not have suffered. ;) Alas, its had worse (as I am not always the most coordinated!). I'm going to start with Alison, since yellows are my absolute favorites, and I want to save Sun Goddess for last. Here is Alison, 2 coats with Butter London base and top coat:

Something I could not totally capture (you can see it a bit in the middle finger on the top one) in these photos is a slight shimmer that showed up in direct sunlight with Alison. The hot pink was awesome!! However, the glitter was a little bit difficult. It did not spread as well as I could hope and sunk in the bottle quite a bit. Overall, I still liked it a lot anyway- I'm not a huge black glitter person, so the sparse look I got was more than enough for me! Here are a couple more shots of just one finger to hopefully show more detail:

Finally, on to Sun Goddess! This was much more sheer than I was expecting, so after the first two fingers, I decided to show it as a topper. Pointer and Middle fingers are two thin coats and one thick coat over Butter London basecoat, Ring finger is one coat over one coat Zoya Raven and Butter London base coat, and Pinkie finger is one coat over one coat Zoya Purity and Butter London basecoat.

It has an almost holographic shimmer to it that I will try to show with a little bit of blur to the photo:
|Same as above with NailNation3000 Sun Goddess, but blurred- look at that gorgeous shine!|
My favorite of all these nails is definitely of it over white- it looks amazing over white!! I loved that pinkie nail and when I have more time, I'll be wearing Sun Goddess that way in the future.

|NailNation3000 Sun Goddess- 1 coat over 1 coat Zoya Purity. This was my favorite look!|
Final thoughts: I really like these two polishes and would definitely be wearing Sun Goddess in the future. Alison probably too- especially on days when I am craving some hot pink (and yeah, that happens). The formula was good overall and they are lovely polishes! I'd definitely be up for trying some other NailNation3000 polishes in the future!
