Zoya Urban Grunge

Hello and welcome to a peek of the Zoya Urban Grunge collection for Fall/Winter 2016! 

Urban Grunge features twelve new shades. Six of them are pigmented cremes and the other six are either shimmery holos, or metallic shimmers. Nothing here was more than two coats and I had not a single issue with the application of any of these.

Zoya Remove

I used their “Naked system” when swatching these which includes their Naked Manicure Perfector, Naked Base Coat, Naked Glossy Seal, Speed Dry Drops and of course their fabulous Remove nail polish remover (which I use constantly).

Zoya Urban Grunge Collection

I was really impressed that these really were all one to two coats – very pigmented! None of them applied weirdly or gave me any grief either, which is great. Of course I do have some personal favorites and they are August, Wyatt, Ash, Britta, Merida and Finley. I had a beta fish named Finley! I feel like the holo and/metallic shimmers were the most unique ones, though Wyatt isn’t a green I come across all that often.

These will be available starting August 15th on the Zoya site and they are $10.00 each.

Which are your favorites?
