Maya cosmetics: What kind of party?

today i have some swatches and a quick review of maya cosmetics new holiday collection called "wheres the party?" . there are three polishes in this collection , two glitter top coats and a insanely gorgeous glitterbomb.
now let me tell you , i am a sucker for a good glitter and these do not disappoint. smooth and easy application, great glitter payoff from the toppers and amazing coverage from the glitterbomb. another thing i love about these are how versatile they are , they can be worn all year and both glitter top coats can be worn over almost (if not ) every color you can think of . i have a few pictures to share with you , these are all on a swatch wheel , sadly if got gloomy quick and i am not happy with how those pictures turned out, i wouldnt want to show you something like that and take away from the polishes. however, i will redo the swatches on my nails and have those pictures up tomorrow... on to the pictures ;)

lerft to right:Shindig, hootenanny and gathering 

first up we have shindig, a glitter top coat. here you can find pearl white and gold squares, gold micro bars and a beautiful subtle gold shimmer in a clear base , here i applied 1 coat no top coat. absolutely no issues here no need to dig around or place glitters , as you can see it goes well with a wide variety of colors
shingdig over red, brown, turquoise and metallic red 

shingding over green, berry and deep purple 


next up is Hootenanny ( how fun is that name lol ) this is the glitter bomb of the pack and my personal favorite. here we have a mix of silver and gunmetal which make up most of the base then a bunch of different size and colored glitter with a bit of holographic shimmer to make it all super fun and extra sparkly. again , no issues with application , opaque in 2 coats but you can layer 1 coat over darker colors like i've done here. this one drys a little gritty and dull so you will need at least 2 coats of top coat to smooth it out but thats common with these kind of polishes ;)
hootenanny over a metallic blue and over black , no topcoat 

last but not least we have gathering, an iridescent top coat with aqua  micro flakies! this is one of those polishes that just transform when layered over darker colors, but i love the way they look over light colors also , its just a nice surprise when it catches the light , i apologize in advance for not having better pictures

gathering over a grey creme 

these will be available starting November 15 , you can get all 3 polishes for $20.00 {plus shipping) from nove 15 -25 after that they are 8$ each
