This pretty light rosy taupe nude shade is Black Dahlia Lacquer New Dawn.
It’s full of holo microglitter, turquoise glass fleck, and pink-purple-blue shifting microflakies.
I used two coats plus top coat.
In the shade:
I did a comparison with a couple of polishes that aren’t really that close, heheh. Index finger is Ruby White Tips Kim and ring finger is Maya Cosmetics Vintage.
(Top to bottom: RWT Kim, BDL New Dawn, Maya Vintage, BDL New Dawn)
Kim is pinker and has very subtle scattered holo particles (not microglitter like New Dawn). Vintage is a much darker dusty rose-mauve and also has holo particles as opposed to microglitter.

Edit: Laura of Ruby White Tips has commented below that she’s currently got a 20% off code good for all Ruby White Tips polishes, please scroll down to the comments for the code and link to her store if you’re interested in Kim or any of her other polishes. You can see some of her other shades that I’ve posted about before by checking out my brand Category “Ruby White Tips”. 🙂
Another mani from last year, another Maya Cosmetics polish! This is Maya Cosmetics Reef, a great turquoise blue creme with heavy gold flakes, shown in two coats plus top coat. The texture polish is China Glaze Seahorsin’ Around, also two coats. Under Ott Lite:
I have some swatches and manis from last year that I still haven’t posted; here is one of them! Shown under Ott Lite:
The olive green is Hex from the now-defunct Maya Cosmetics, and the orangey-brown brick colour is Pretty Serious Martian Sea. Two coats each. Sunlight:
They both have great colour-shifting shimmer, especially Martian Sea which shifts from gold through to blue at an extreme angle. Ott lite:
I thought these two went together really well!
I have a few random phone pics of relatively-recent manis to share today!
Quo by Orly Infinity and Beyond (same as Orly Milky Way), layered over Cosmetic Arts Sky High (which I think is the same as Color Club Take Me To Your Chateau). Accent nail is just the Cosmetic Arts by itself.
Kleancolor Concrete, a one-coater, with Kleancolor Yogurt Raisins on the accent nail.
Maya Cosmetics Big Chief, two coats. The glitter was a little sparse but other than that it had a great formula.
And finally, Misa High Brow, a gorgeous vampy purple shimmer with a satin-matte finish. On my rarely-seen right hand:
On my usual hand, with topcoat:
This lovely beige/taupe/nude polish is Turbo Classy by Maya Cosmetics! It’s a creme base with plenty of subtle shimmer in it. I used two coats plus top coat here; the formula was smooth and easy to apply.

And again with halogen light:
This post is heavy on indies and heavy on green. 😀
Maya Cosmetics Deuces, a creamy chartreuse green with subtle holo, two coats:
In overcast light:
With one thick layer of Pretty and Polished Sand Art on the middle finger, with flash:
Next, Pretty and Polished Old Green River, an unfortunately discontinued amazing glowy green with gold shimmer, also two coats, under Ott lite:
Under halogen light;
With one thick coat of Sand Art overtop:
With topcoat overtop:
I love all three of these!!
I have an indie polish to show you today, from the brand Maya Cosmetics which I was excited to learn states on their website that their polishes are vegan friendly!
This is Nefarious Aquarius, a teal/turquoise holo polish! Photo above is with flash, and the following ones are under Ott Lite.
Two coats, no complaints about the formula! It’s all around just a great polish!
And finally, not the greatest photo, but here is how it looked outdoors in the sunlight:
