It’s almost that time of year, comfy sweaters, pumpkin spice and Fall Nail Polish! Yay!!! Let’s kick off the fall collection swatches with Zoya‘s offering for 2016. Their Urban Grunge Collection is a two parter. There is a “metallics” portion and a “one coat cremes” portion. Today I have the metallics…which includes 3 new sparkling holo particle jelly shades reminiscent of the 2012 Ornate Collection holos and 3 full coverage metallic shimmers. Let’s get right to it shall we?! 🙂
Zoya Nail Polish ~ Urban Grunge Collection
Fall / Winter 2016
All 6 of these new colors are absolute perfection! They have that great Zoya formula, go on smooth and easy and are simply stunning. I had zero issues. We’ll start with these new beautiful scattered holos.
Alicia has a clear base jam packed with silver scattered holographic particles and a lit from within gold shimmer. Zoya however describes it as a “linear holo” I don’t really agree with that, while the rainbow is more dense than the other 2 shades it is still definitely scattered. Used 3 coats with top coat for these swatches.
Merida is a rich evergreen jelly filled with holographic particles. This one will be awesome in some Christmas tree nail arts! Shown here is 2 easy coats plus top coat.
Finley is a delicious royal purple jelly with those same sparkling holo micro-flakes. It is similar to Aurora from the Ornate Collection (swatched here – forgive my old photos) but is a completely different shade of purple and the holo particle are larger/not as dense. Again I used 2 coats with top coat for these photos.
Ash is a vibrant cherry red metallic with heavy red and gold shimmers and a pink flash that shines where the light hits giving it a gorgeous glow. This baby could pretty much be a one coater. I did use 2 coats for the photos but one covered well enough (you can see how the first coat went on in my live swatch video).
Troy is a gunmetal gray metallic with heavy shimmer. Zoya describes it as liquid pewter foil with black and gold. I also see a hint lavender purple color in the shimmer that I just love! Again you could totally get away with one coat but I used 2 for these swatches.
Britta is a deep magenta berry metallic shade filled with red and purple shimmers. Again shown here is 2 coats with top coat.
Aren’t they pretty! My top picks are Alicia, Finley, Troy and Ash. Which do you like best??
