Maya Cosmetics' Treme and Redemption-PRE-ORDER AVAILABLE!

Last night, I showed you Maya Cosmetics' holo polishes that will be available today!!  This morning, I want to show you two polishes that are available for pre-order from today through Nov 25!  These polishes will be part of the Crescent City Collection in January.  It is a New Orleans themed collection based on the rhythms and lives of New Orleans.  Kat decided to have these available for pre-order because they are so ridiculously holiday-esque!
First up is Treme.   Treme is named after a neighborhood in New Orleans that is known for its mixed culture and brass bands.  Treme is a micro-glitter packed polish made up mainly of gold, but colored with the rainbow!
I used two coats to get it opaque and it layered really well. I have never had such ease of use with a glitter bomb like this!  I was able to get clean and crisp lines around my cuticles with just a swipe of the brush.
I used Maya Cosmetics new glitter top coat (as of now, it is unnamed) instead of Gelous on my nails and it really smoothed it out.
This polish would be perfect for New Year's Eve or Christmas!
Redemption is based off of the New Orleans Saints.  I think that's football. :o)  It is meant to be worn over a black base, but rules are meant to be broken, and no one will scream at you if you decide to wear it over another color!  You can see on my ring finger what two coats alone looks like as opposed to it being over black.
Redemption is a black glitter polish with larger gold hexes and tiny holo gold and some silver squares.  My pictures truly do it no justice as the holo glitters just shine all over the place in real life!  I was so excited and thought I had captured it on camera, but I was wrong.
These photos will have to do, but I can tell you that this polish is amazing!  I layered one coat over Milani Black Swift.  I also used this manicure to test out Maya's new (unnamed) glitter took coat.  On my pinkie and middle finger, I used Maya's top coat. On my ring and index, I used Gelous.  I then followed with a coat of Seche Vite.  While putting on Maya's top coat, it was exactly the same as putting on Gelous. I had no issues and it was easy.  It was after about an hour, when it had all dried completely, that I noticed a difference.  Maya's top coat (and Seche) was smooth to the touch-like glass.  The fingers with Gelous and Seche was not. The Gelous had sunken into the glitter, while Maya's had not.  If you look closely, you may be able to see it in the pictures!  At $4 per bottle, it is a no-brainer for me to go with Maya's new top coat.
If you look at the bottle shots, you can see the holo craziness that is there.  THAT was on my nails!

These polishes and more are available for pre-order today through Nov. 25 on the Maya Cosmetics website!  Otherwise, they will become available again in January as a part of the Crescent City Collection.
