Today I started Nemo and noticed it's new (ugly) look which looks like some kind of fallback mode: When looking at the package history, I only see recent updates of phonon packages and the installation of wireshark and minitube. The current version is 2.0.8, downgrading to version 1.8.4-1 didn't help.
It may be too late for you, but
nemo -q did the trick for me.
I had the exact same problem.
