Zoya Urban Grunge Fall 2016: Metallics & Holos

August 10, 2016

I can't believe it's already time for fall collections. Summer whizzed on by pretty quickly this year. It's still warm in Kentucky until the end of August, but once kids go back to school and Wal Mart starts putting out Halloween decorations, it doesn't really feel like summer anymore. For fall, Zoya has released a 12 piece collection called Urban Grunge. 6 creams which I will be showing you later, and today I'm going to share the 6 metallics and holos!

FINLEY is described as a deep royal purple scattered holo. I knew I had to swatch this one first because it's absolutely gorgeous, and I think this will be the "winner" of the collection. Formula is a bit thick, but not problematic. Polish can easily pool on brush, so be careful. Shown below is 2 coats with top coat.
MERIDA is described as a brilliant lush evergreen scattered holo. This polish is rich and lush, and so beautiful! Perfect for the fall and will be great for Christmas nail art. Be careful, as this one *might* be a stainer, I did notice a bit of staining on my cuticles when I was doing clean up. Shown below is 2 easy coats with top coat.
ALICIA is described as a linear holo with a touch of gold. The formula for this was a bit more sheer than the other two. First coat was very, very sheer. Builds up nicely at 3 coats. This one is very unique, as it shifts to a goldish color at certain angles. I tried to capture the shift in picture but I wasn't able to! Shown below is 3 coats with top coat. 
ASH is described as a vibrant cherry with a red and gold metallic shimmer. Another shade that I think will be perfect for Christmas nail art, this one could be pulled off in one coat. I chose to do 2 coats for evenness though! The second picture was taken in direct light.
BRITTA is described as a berry metallic with a red and purple, fuchsia flash. This beautiful wine color is stunning in person! Just like Ash, this one can be pulled off in 1 coat, but I did 2 coats for evenness. Careful, as this one may be a stainer as well.
TROY is described as a liquid pewter with a foil finish and an edgy touch of black and gold. Formula for this one was thicker than I'd like, but application wasn't too problematic. Shown below is 2 coats with top coat.
