A Few Polishes from Maya Cosmetics

Hi friends! I have another indie polish brand that is new-to-me to show off today. Maya Cosmetics is a husband and wife team that offers unique, hand-blended nail lacquers made with cosmetic-grade pigments and glitters.

Like a Boss, which is one of my favorite sayings ever, is described as a delicate peachy-pink nude with subtle scattered holo. This is a great band-aid-but-better shade for me, very close to my skin tone with a pretty subdued holo shimmer. This is three coats.

Redemption is from the January collection called the Crescent City Collection and all the polishes are New Orleans-themed. It's for the New Orleans Saints fans out there, and even though I don't follow any sports I can appreciate the color combination the team has as it makes a lovely polish. This is two coats of the glitter polish over a black base. This has black glitter in micro and small sizes, with larger gold hexes and holo white/silver squares and hexes. Very fun and yay for team spirit!

Treme is also from the Crescent City collection, named after a neighborhood in New Orleans that is known for its brass bands and mixed culture. I love this so much, it's really gorgeous in real life. It's base glitter color is a brassy champagne and the rest of the glitters are in varying shades. The "mardi gras" colors of purple, green, and gold are all represented nicely. This is three coats. I again stress how beautiful this is, I am really intrigued by it.

Maya Cosmetics is sold on the website for $9 each. Like a Boss is available now and the other two were sold in a pre-order last month but will be available for sale in January. What do you think about these polishes? Have you tried anything from Maya yet?
