Maya Cosmetics Swatches!

Today I have some pretty polishes from a new indie brand called Maya Cosmetics. If you are a follower of Michelle over at Things I Love At The Moment, you should know what I am talking about because she recently did an awesome interview with the creator, Kat, and swatched the entire collection of polishes!

Kat was kind enough to send these 4 my way to share with you all! I have: Commotion, Kung-Fu Treachery, Hyperbole, and Last Call. 3 glitters and 1 gorgeous color shifting shimmer!



First, I have Commotion. This glitter topper is crazy packed. What you are seeing below is less than one coat on each finger over Butter London Sprog. Yes, so packed that I ended up wiping some glitter off the brush before I applied because it was so dense. Very pretty color combo here of blue, purple, pink, silver glitters in a clear base. I bet in 2-3 coats you could wear this alone if you preferred. Shown with top coat.



The square glitters seem to have "reflective curling" because with one coat of top coat, they were smooth to the touch.


Next up is Kung-Fu Treachery. I chose to layer one coat over Deborah Lippmann Footloose. The unique part of this multishaped black and white glitter is the added tiny gold glitters. So often it's a silver added into this color combo and having gold was a nice change! I did have to arrange some of the glitter but it wasn't bad. Shown with one coat of top coat.






Onto the last of the glitters. This is Hyperbole. It has a blue jelly base and its packed with different colored and shaped glitters. This was another with so much glitter that I wiped some off for easier application. I'm showing 3 coats below with top coat. It has pink, orange, blue, and chartreuse glitters. The only glitters I had an issue with were the big chartreuse hexes, some seemed to be curling a bit because they were visible off the nail with top coat. I'm sure a thicker top coat would alleviate this. I love this color combination of glitters to base!



Look at how much glitter is in there!


And finally we come to the shimmer of the group: Last Call. Last Call is a gorgeous color shifting shimmer and I love it! It's a blackened violet and the shimmer flecks shift from blue to purple to pink on the nail. The best part? Just 2 easy coats and it doesn't have to be worn over black to see the color shift! That's my least favorite part of duo and multichrome polishes. Shown with top coat.

How gorgeous it is even in the bottle!!


So pretty!!
