There will be 20 total and I'm breaking them into four posts, in alphabetical order by brand. So here we go after the break...

NailNation 3000 swatches

A little while ago, one of my all-time favorite brands, NailNation 3000 ran a giveaway where you tagged a friend and got a chance to win a prize for both you and your buddy. I tagged Schette from  Les essais beauté de Schette and we won! Not only were the prize colors stunning but there was a touching surprise in there for me!  Every time I wear NailNation 3000 it reminds me why I have 
been buying Maria's polishes for over two years. They might be pricier than many indies, but she packs them absolutely full of Spectraflair and really high-quality pigments and there are frequent sales and specials. Not only that, but they dry lightning fast and are easy to control. These are luxury polishes, for sure! Check them out after the break...
