Painted Sabotage: Hate Tank

Tonight, we have the lovely Hate Tank by Painted Sabotage!  I know the maker, Chrissy, from a forum we both post on and she is a total sweetheart!  Every polish is made with love and every order is packed in pretty tissue paper accented by cute stamps and stickers.  She also ties a cute little handmade tag to at least one polish in your order (at least, that has been the case every time I have ordered from her lol).

Hate Tank is a deep, berry-red jelly filled with black hearts, black shreds, burgundy glitter, and red holo glitter.  The interesting thing with Hate Tank is that you never really know when you're going to get a heart because you can't see them in the bottle and you can't see them against the black bristles of the brush.  You're probably thinking "but how will I fish them out if I can't see them?!"  That's another cool thing about Hate Tank, you never have to fish for hearts!  Application was fairly easy, though you may occasionally end up with more hearts than you would like and they may clump a bit.  Dry time was average/longish, as is usually the case with jellies.  I used two coats, but I didn't apply it in the best lighting, so some nails are lighter and some are darker lol.  If you want it to look dark and edgy and vampy, use more coats.  If you want to be able to see the hearts more easily, use one coat (maybe over a white or nude if you're worried about VNL) or do thin coats.

Pretty, right?  Oh, and in case you were wondering where the name "Hate Tank" came from, Chrissy's husband (who named it) says it's meant to be the opposite of a Love Boat, haha.  This is a polish for the  people who aren't into cutesy pinks and purples during the Valentine's Day season (though it's great at any time of the year!).

A 15mL bottle of Hate Tank costs $9.75.  You can buy Painted Sabotage's amazing polishes on Etsy HERE.  You can stay up-to-date on new colors on the Painted Sabotage Facebook page HERE.  Painted Sabotage also has a Tumblr you can follow HERE.
