Nautilus/GNOME/Ubuntu File Manager not applying appearance style/changes

I thought it was a GNOME problem because no matter what styles I applied Nautilus wouldn't change, but it was only Nautilus that wouldn't change/update anymore so I should have known.

The only fix/solution I knew of other than rebooting is the following:

sudo killall nautilus

I tried closing all instances of nautilus that were visible and it had no effect.

And another thing to remember is that only will appearances/styles/themes not apply to Nautilus if one process of it is hung/crashed but I added the option to resize and rotate images by right clicking in Nautilus but the option didn't appear until I killed all nautilus's as shown above.
