Maya Cosmetics-The Crescent City Collection!

Maya Cosmetics has a new collection out called the Crescent City Collection-an ode to New Orleans.  You may remember that she did a pre-sale on two of them in November-Treme and Redemption.  I reviewed them HERE.
Tonight, I have the other three from the collection to show you-Let the Good Times Roll, Big Chief, and Cookin' Creole.
Let the Good Times Roll  is a glitter top coat that has all the Mardi Gras colors in it!  In a clear base are green, purple, and black glitters as well as gold holo glitters.
 I layered Let the Good Times Roll over A England Princess Sabra. I thought it fitting to layer a crazy Mardi Gras polish over a gold holo!  I had no issues at all with LTGTR.  The glitters came out easily and layered smoothly and evenly. I only needed one coat and got a good amount on my nails!
 I used two coats of top coat to smooth it out.  Check out the holo glitter in my picture!
Next up is Big Chief.  Big Chief is a light blue jelly polish with matte orange, yellow, lime and silver glitters in it. I used three coats on its own and had slightly visible nail line, but not enough o make me care.  It layered well, but I wished there were a bit more glitters!
The glitters did layer evenly over my nail and I do see the beauty in "Less is more."
Cookin' Creole is a nice nude polish with a kick!  The jelly base is a taupe/peach color and it has dark brown, lime green, and pink glitter in it.
I used three coats to get it opaque, and like Big Chief, it went on very smoothly and did not drag or get lumpy!  Very flawless application!  I really like the micro glitters in it as well!  It reminds me of pepper!
Full sized bottles of Maya Cosmetics retail for $8 in  her shop, but her prices will be increasing to $9.50 starting in February.
