Urban Grunge Collection by Zoya

Press Sample

Good evening!  I hope you are all having a fabulous Friday!  I am so excited for the weekend, it is finally time for the Wrecking Ball Festival in Atlanta!  Before I run off for the weekend, I really have to share the new Urban Grunge Collection by Zoya.  Zoya has released a stunning 12 lacquer line up for all your Fall and Winter needs.  We have 6 great creams and 6 lacquers with either a holo finish or metallic finish.  Tonight’s post is VERY, VERY picture heavy so let’s just dive in the new beautiful lacquers from Zoya!

First we will take a look at all the lovely creams.  Once again Zoya has came out with 6 full coverage creams that are not only great on their own, but stamp really well too.  Mallory is a beautiful vibrant blue creme with high pigmentation.  Application, formula, and coverage were all perfect.  In my photos I am wearing two coats of Mallory.

Next up we have August.  This is a gorgeous medium gray creme that is exactly what I have been looking for.  The formula was a little thicker so I did have a few uneven stokes so next time I will certainly take some extra time in application and use a top coat to help smooth things out.  In my photos I am wearing two coats of August.

 Next up we have Noah.  This is a light taupe creme with yellow undertones.  This blend was much thicker and I did have a bit of an issue applying, I had a lot of unevenness.  I may add a little thinner to get to a more desirable consistency.  In my photos I am wearing two coats of Noah.

Now for a favorite.  Wyatt is a stunning British racing green creme.  Formula, coverage, and consistency were all perfect!  In my photos I am wearing two coats of Wyatt.

Now for a great fall red!  While they are calling these cremes, Courtney is not a creme.  This is a rich oxblood red jelly with some great depth.  I had no issues with application and formula built up nicely.  In my photos I am wearing two coats of Courtney.

Lastly for the cream part of Urban Grunge we have Tara.  This is vibrant plum purple creme with smokey undertones.  In my photos I am wearing two coats of Tara.

Now for the metallics and holos!!!  First up we have Troy.  This is a gorgeous pewter metallic with flashes of yellow.  Consistency was a dream and coverage perfect.  A lot of metallics I tend to avoid due to streaks but with Troy, there were none!  In my photos I am wearing two coats of Troy.

Now for what we have all been waiting for…..  Merida is a GORGEOUS emerald green jelly with holographic flakes.  Application was amazing, the flakes laid smooth, and opacity was perfect.  In my photos I am wearing two coats of Merida.

Next up we have Britta.  This is a gorgeous berry metallic lacquer with flashes of fuchsia and purple flakes.  Again, no issues to report.  In my photos I am wearing two coats of Britta.

Next up we have Ash.  This is a berry pink creme with flashes of fuchsia flakes.  No issues and no streaking.  In my photos I am wearing two coats of Ash.

Now for another gorgeous holo lacquer.  Finley is a stunning, and my favorite by far, royal purple jelly filled with holographic flakes.  In my photos I am wearing two coats of Finley.

Lastly we have Alicia.  This is a silver holographic lacquer with a gold shimmer finish.  Alicia is a bit sheer but builds up nicely and has a silky smooth finish.  In my photos I am wearing three coats of Alicia.

So what do you guys think of the new Urban Grunge Collection by Zoya?  Overall, I am super happy.  I love these new creams for the multipurpose, stamping and lacquer, aspect and the new holos are to die for.  Storm and Dream are two of my favorites from Zoya so to have that holo flakes lacquer in more shades is perfect.  Please check out all that Zoya has to offer and give them a follow on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for up to date info.  Thank you so much for stopping by today and I will see you all again tomorrow.

    You know, I was dying for Alicia but I didn’t realize it had the gold shimmer and I’m just not sure if I’m dying for it anymore. It’s unique but I just don’t love gold. The purple and green are beautiful too. The cremes aren’t bad either but I’m just so tired of cremes.

      I’m not a gold fan either but the subtle shimmer isn’t bad at all. Think more white gold look, while it is silver there is still a hint of yellow. Also I’ve been loving the new Zoya cremes, they have all been great for stamping!!!

    Personally, I ADORE this collection! The metallics, the holos, the cremes – all so so good!

      Certainly a great round up of shades and finishes!!!

    Mallory is my favourite. I love that shade of blue, in a nice crelly finish. It reminds me of OPI Dating A Royal.

    Love this collection, so many standouts for me. Alicia, August, Noah, Tara and Troy. Lovely swatches.

    • Nina August 15, 2016 at 12:12 PM #

      There are certainly a lot of fabulous shades! Thanks!

    I don’t hate Zoya, but I do find their names dreadfully boring which makes them easy to forget. I get that their ‘thing’ is women’s names but *yawn*. Pretty swatches, though.

      I too am a sucker for cute names but in the end, it’s what’s inside. I have bought stuff with clever naming only to hate the formula.

    I’m seriously loving Bing this entire collection!

      Not sure why my phone added Bing

    I loved that gray in person.

    • Nina August 15, 2016 at 12:10 PM #

      It is pretty much the perfect shade!
