Mainstream Swatch and Review - Urban Grunge Metallic Holos

Nothing to Disclose

Hello lovely readers! Sorry I've been gone this past month but I am back with my review of the Urban Grunge Metallic Holos collection by Zoya.

Urban Grunge Metallic Holos nail polish collection by Zoya



The collection is comprised of holos and shimmers: Troy, Britta, Ash, Alicia, Finley, and Merida.

Troy
Is a pewter foil polish featuring gold shimmer. The formula is very nice, with two coats being sufficient for full opacity and self-leveling. Shown below are coats plus top coat.

Britta
This is a burgundy polish featuring gold shimmer. It is highly pigmented and may cause some staining of the cuticle area. I used over a base coat and did not stain my nails. One coat may be sufficient for full opacity and self-leveling. Shown below are two coats.

Ash
This is a garnet polish featuring red and gold shimmer. Like Britta above, it is highly pigmented and one coat may be sufficient for full opacity and self-leveling. Shown below are two coats.

Alicia
This is a silver polish featuring linear holographic particles and gold shimmer. The gold shimmer brought out the yellow stains on my nails, but I do love this polish in the bottle. Two coats are sufficient for full opacity and self-leveling. Shown below are two coats.

Finley
This is a deep purple polish featuring larger scattered holographic particles. The larger holo particles make this polish a bit on the thicker side and may require pure acetone to remove it. However, this does not affect the application, requiring just one to two coats for full opacity and self-leveling. Shown below are two coats.

Merida
This is a forest green polish featuring larger scattered holographic particles. Like with Finley, the larger holo particles make this polish a bit on the thicker side and may require pure acetone to remove it. One coat may be sufficient for full opacity and self-leveling. Shown below are two coats.

Overall, I love this collection. The holos are beautiful, the colors are rich, and the formulas deliver. Did you get this collection or are you planning on grabbing a few? I would love to hear from you!
