Hello my sweeties! How are you today? I just came back from a wonderful vacation (why do vacation always seem so short?) and I need a serious pick me up :( I think it's the perfect timing for holo nail polish!! 
Zoya "Urban Grunge" collection for Fall/Winter 2016* achieved to cheer me up in no time! Gorgeous sparkling nail colours... never fails to put me in a good mood. I am sure you'll agree with me as soon as you see how lovely these polishes are. 

This second half of the Zoya Urban Grunge collection is simply stunning! I think it is perfect for the Holiday season, to make a statement with your manicure. Colours are intense, finishes rich and sparkling, what is not to love! 

As usual, the polishes of this collection live up to the great quality standards. Zoya polishes are toxin-free formula and Big5Free certified, being completely free of Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Toluene, Dibutyl Phatalate (DBP) and Camphor. Hence, they are specially indicated for pregnant women. Zoya polishes are also cruelty-free, which means these nail polishes and their ingredients are never tested on animals, and/or do not have any animal derived ingredients. 

But without further ado, let's see the swatches.

Zoya Alicia
A linear holo with a touch of gold. Smooth application with an elegant 2 coat coverage

Zoya Finely
A deep royal purple scattered holo.

Zoya Merida
A brilliant lush evergreen scattered holo.

Zoya Britta
A berry metallic with a red and purple fuchsia flash. Densely pigmented, smooth application.

Zoya ash
A vibrant cherry with a red and gold metallic shimmer.

Zoya Troy
A liquid pewter with a foil finish and an edgy touch of black and gold.

All the swatches show two coats over a basecoat, without topcoat. The formulation on both the holos and the metallic finishes was very good. The application was very easy as they all have a nice consistency to work with. The metallics were completely free of brush strokes which is pretty awesome! The drying time is fairly fast, considering I did not use any method to speed up the drying process. I would say the whole collection is pretty consistent formula-wise and application-wise. 

The Urban Grunge collection (and over 300 Zoya shades) are available in Switzerland at beautykosm.comeach full size bottle contains 15ml and they retail for 19.00 CHF each, or you can get the whole collection for 100.00 CHF

Again, it is really difficult to choose a favourite colour in this collection! All the holos are total stunners! And from the Metallics my favourite is Troy. Which are your favourites? Will you pick any from this collection? 

Have a lovely day sweeties!!
