Maya Cosmetics- Enigma, Olive Not-So-Drab, and Kung-Fu Treachery.

I have shown you The Aequilibrium Collection and the Cast-A-Spell Collection by Maya Cosmetics, and now, over the next few days, I am going to show you the rest of her collection.  
Enigma, Olive Not-So-Drab, Kung-Fu Treachery

Enigma is a rich chocolate brown polish with a golden shimmer in it.  I swear, it felt like I had melted chocolate on my fingertips!  I used three thin coats for opacity, but you might be able to achieve that with two thicker coats.
I am not a fan of brown polishes, but once again, I am won over by a Maya Cosmetics polish!  Enigma is a beautiful polish, and one I can foresee wearing a lot this fall and winter!
 Here is a bottle shot of Enigma...
Enigma: Rich chocolate brown with gold shimmer
Olive Not-So-Drab was one that I could not wait to get my hands on!  I have always been a fan of military or earthy greens, so this one spoke to me immediately.   Olive Not-So-Drab is an olive color with a green (almost blue) shimmer to it.  I used two coats for opacity and found that on my pinkie it was a one coater!  (My pinkie was one coat.)  This polish applied perfectly.
I had an awful time trying to capture the shimmer in this polish!  Below you can somewhat see it, but in the sun it is much more obvious!
Bottle shot!!!
Olive Not-So-Drab: Olive creme with gold and green-blue shimmer.
 Kung Fu-Treachery is a mixture of matte black, matte white and fine gold glitters in a clear base.  The surprise bonus here were the bars, squares, and diamonds in it!  I was also taken by the use of gold rather than silver glitters which brought this polish to a classy level.  I have to add that this polish was Kat's husband's idea along with the name!  Looks like the husband has excellent taste!
I layered Kung-Fu Treachery over Olive Not-So-Drab.  Kung-Fu Treachery is so dense with glitter that one load of polish covered three fingers before I had to dip again for more glitters!  The other bonus was that I did not need to manipulate any of the larger glitters.  What you see on my nails, is what came out on the brush!
There was some very minor clumping of some of the smaller black squares, but other than that, this polish was perfect!
Last bottle shot...
Kung-Fu Treachery-black, white and gold glitters in a clear base.
