Maya Cosmetics Nefarious Aquarius

Hey everybody! :)

The word nefarious means wicked, evil, or villainous.  So if Nefarious Aquarious was charged with the crime of being wickedly awesome, every jury in creation would lock her up and throw away the key. 

This was my very first Maya Cosmetics polish, and I have to tell you, I'm in love.  I had been eyeing Nefarious Aquarius since it first came out last November.  I finally picked it up last week, and it's even better than I thought it would be.

Look at that holo!

Nefarious Aquarius is described as a "blue-green holo with a subtle underlying blue/turquoise/purple glow."  You don't have to look very hard to see all these colors!  In the shade, this gorgeous polish is a dusty teal...just add a bit of light, and it blows your mind.

A rainbow at every angle!
Awesome sauce in a bottle

I used 2 coats for the photos and no top coat .  It was a superb formula with even application and no patchiness. 

I could look at this all day.  No...really, I could.

It pains me to say this, but I'm going to say it...Nefarious Aquarius is the teal version of what Zoya Aurora SHOULD have been.  I love Zoya, but I think they missed it a bit with Aurora's somewhat grainy-looking holo glitter.  This polish reminds me a lot of Aurora but with a much finer glitter.

I love you!

Nefarious Aquarius is in danger of becoming my new favorite polish. :)  It can be purchased on the Maya Cosmetics website.  All their polishes are 3-free, cruelty-free and vegan.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a beautiful Sunday! :)

  1. Wow, that is a LOVELY shade, made even better by the holo! And your cuticles, paint job, and nail shaping couldn't be any more perfect!!!
    I have been obsessed with linear holos ever since I first saw a bunch of older blog posts with the China Glaze OMG collection...I then discovered most of those are so rare & HTF that they retail on eBay for like, $40! Sorry dude, no way! I'm SUPER glad to have recently found Color Club's holos from this year and last year. I got Angel Kisses and it BLOWS MY MIND! If you love holo, you should definitely Google Images those collections. I got mine for $7 on eBay.
