ZOYA NAIL POLISH Urban Grunge (cremes) : Swatches and Review

Hi there, my darlings! While it's still scorching hot in NYC, there have been a couple of beautiful, breezy days lately. You know what that means! It's almost time for my favorite season of the year--FALL! I love Fall--the cooler temperatures, the boots and scarves fashion, the vampy, sexy colors. With those things to eagerly look forward to, let's take a peek at the "one-coat cremes" from Zoya Nail Polish and Treatment's Urban Grunge collection for Fall 2016!

This collection consists of 6 cremes in rich, pigmented shades. Across the board, I found no major issues to report with the formula. I did find that the finish tended to vary and although you could probably get away with one coat if you tend to paint thicker coats, I preferred two coats to get the perfect finish and full opacity I like. All the swatches below show just 2 easy coats of each polish by itself on all fingers, except for the ring finger which shows just 1 coat for comparison, by itself. No topcoat. Ready for swatches?

August is described as "a full coverage gray like a fine, expensive leather wit mid-ranged, balanced tone". Greys can be dreadfully boring but this one is pigmented enough to be interesting!

Courtney is described as "a deep red beet root shade with a full coverage, and smooth application". This had a more jelly/crelly formula than a true creme but I love the finish AND the shade! Vampy perfection!

Mallory is described as "a full bodied, Prussian blue with deeply saturated color". First of all, let's rejoice in the fact that this luscious shade is NOT a stainer. Secondly, I think this one is a keeper for all-year-round!

Noah is described as "a mid-range taupe evenly balanced between yellow and grey, with a full coverage and smooth application". I was really impressed with the formula of this nude--unlike others, this one is hardly streaky and very flattering on my darker complexion!

Tara is described as "a purple plum with a balanced tone between red and purple. Deeply saturated, full coverage, smooth application". My favorite of this collection, this luscious plum was made for the season!

Wyatt is described as "a true racing green with a deep pigment, full coverage, and smooth application". If you love greens, this rich, deep green will win your heart!

So there you have it, my darlings! The Zoya Urban Grunge cremes are available now on Zoya's website HERE for the price of $10 for a full-size, 0.5 oz bottle or $60 for the set of 6.
