Good morning, readers! I'm interrupting our normal schedule of nail art to bring you some swatches (and a skittlette, that counts as a nail art post right?) of three new Maya Cosmetics polishes being released tomorrow! I didn't want to wait any longer to share these so you don't miss out on the SALE!
There are 5 new core colors, 2 One Batch Wonders (there are literally only one batch of each so grab them as soon as they are live or you will miss out), and a quick dry top coat!
I have 3 of the new colors, one being a One Batch Wonder, and the top coat to review for you today.
Let's start out with a skittlette I did using two of the new polishes: Stargazing and Hematite.
Stargazing is a deep blue jelly with silver micro glitter. Reminiscent of the night sky, this jelly polish is gorgeous! I've done two coats below with 1 coat of the new Maya Cosmetics Topcoat. It applied easily and had great coverage. The glitters suspend well in the jelly base and it has so much depth! I love it!
Hematite is one of the One Batch Wonders. It is a dark gray metallic(sort of) polish. I'm showing only ONE COAT on my pinky and thumb. It applied easily and covered so well! I even stamped with it over Stargazing on my index and middle fingers! It's a subtle effect over the dark blue but that's my color combo choice, not anything reflected on it's stamping abilities. I'm showing it with one coat of Maya Cosmetics Topcoat below as well.
The stamped nails also got a coat of the new Maya Cosmetics Topcoat and it didn't smear the stamping at all! Woohoo! When trying a new top coat over nail art for the first time, it's a stressful situation. You don't know yet if it will drag through your design or float on top like this one did. It dries quickly, not as quickly as Seche Vite, but I didn't mess up my mani after applying it and that's saying something for me!

The third new polish I have to show you is called Glitter Is The New Black! Such a cute name, and a really pretty polish. It is a black base with black, silver, pink, orange, silver holo, and purple holo micro glitters. I'm showing two coats below and it was a gritty finish so I did two coats of Maya Cosmetics Topcoat. You could probably skip the top coat and wear it as almost a textured polish, actually, but I wanted to get that high shine to see those glitters sparkle! I can't wait to wear this as an accent nail for some halloween mani ideas!
What do you think of these new polishes by Maya Cosmetics? They release tomorrow at 2pm EDT and there is a sale running from September 27-30th for 25% off your entire purchase! The code for the sale is FALLSPECIAL.
The normal prices for the polishes are $9.50 and $4 for the topcoat, so this is a great time to try out or stock up on some new favorites!
Also, she is discontinuing some older polishes and they are on clearance to $6.50 before the sale, and the sale code will apply to them as well!
ONE MORE exciting thing to add, the Smoothing Topcoat is coming back! It is my favorite for smoothing out gritty glitters and I am so happy to see it coming back. It is also normally priced for $4 a bottle. (I recommend applying one coat of Smoothing top coat over top coat hungry glitters and then applying one coat of the quick drying Topcoat).
Don't forget that Hematite is a One Batch Wonder and you won't be able to get it once it sells out so grab it quickly!
Which is your favorite of the new polishes? You can find swatches of the entire collection over at Things I Love At The Moment!
