Zoya Nail Polish Urban Grunge Fall Collection 2016: Creams Swatch & Review

Zoya just released their Fall 2016 Collection.Urban Grunge, which consists of six creams and six mettalics and holos! I finally got around to swatching the six creams! I'm actually very happy how these swatches turned out!

Zoya Nail Polish Urban Grunge Creams 2016

Mallory ZP853
Mallory is described as a full bodied, vibrant prussian blue with a deeply saturated color. I did two thin coats plus top coat for my swatch to avoid flooding and staining my cuticles. 

August ZP854
August is described as a full coverage gray, like a fine expensive leather with a mid-ranged, balanced tone. It's the perfect one coat gray! My swatch shows one carefully applied thick coat plus top coat. 

Wyatt ZP855
Wyatt is described as a true racing green with a deep pigment. My swatch shows two thin coats plus top coat to avoid flooding my cuticles. 

Courtney ZP856
Courtney is described as a deep red beet root shade. I love this color! Again my swatch shows two thin coats plus top coat.

Tara ZP857
Tara is described as a purple plum with a balanced tone between red and purple. Two thin coats plus top coat.

Noah ZP858
Noah is described as a mid-ranged taupe evenly balanced between yellow and grey. My swatch shows one carefully applied thick coat plus top coat.

I did some looks with these polishes to test out their stamping abilities and watermarbling.

Zoya Wyatt
I wanted to see Wyatt matte so I did this sort of ruffian style look.

Zoya August, Mallory, and Matte Velvet
Mallory stamped over August with BP-X03 and topped with Zoya Matte Velvet top coat.

 Tara, Wyatt, and Courtney stamped over Noah with BP-X09.

Wyatt, Noah, and Mallory watermarbled on ring and pinky fingers.

Overall this is a beautiful fall collection. Formulas are very pigmented and when applied carefully they will be one coaters. My habit has always been to do thin coats especially with darker colors.

I hope you enjoyed these swatches. I will be swatching and posting my review of the Metallics & Holos early next week so stay tuned!
