Zoya Nail Polish Urban Grunge: Metallics & Holos Review


I have the second part of the Zoya Fall 2016 Urban Grunge Collection. This part consists of 3 holos and 3 metallics. You can see my review of the one coat creames here.

Zoya Nail Polish Urban Grunge Fall 2016 Collection

Zoya Alicia

 Zoya Merida is described as a brilliant lush evergreen scattered holo. Another stunner! My swatch shows two coats plus top coat.

Zoya Britta

 Zoya Britta is described as a berry metallic with a red and purple fuchsia flash. My swatch two coats plus top coat.

Zoya Ash

Zoya Ash macro
 Zoya Ash is described as a vibrant cherry with a red and gold metallic shimmer. I felt like the gold shimmer didn't quite translate on the nail. You can see it a bit on the macro photo. My swatch shows two coats plus top coat.

Zoya Troy

Zoya Troy macro
 Zoya Troy is described as a liquid pewter with a foil finish and an edgy touch of black and gold. I felt very meh about this one honestly. You can see the gold shimmer more on the bottle than on the nail. My swatch shows two coats plus top coat. I almost had it opaque in one coat though.

Overall I did enjoy this part of the collection. I was very excited about the scattered holos, they're gorgeous! Formulas on all these are nice and smooth. I have not tested if these stamp or not but I'm sure most do. I did do a watermarble with the holos though as you can see below. I think they watermarbled nicely. Almost forgot to mention, I did the watermarble over two coats of Alicia.
