Today I have my swatches for the One Coat Cremes portion of the Urban Grunge collection, available now from Zoya.com! These were sent to me for review and I will jump right into these super gorgeous shades!

First up is Noah, described as a “mid-range taupe evenly balanced between yellow and grey.” I had no problem getting this polish opaque in one thicker coat, it leveled out amazing with no pooling or running. Noah also did an amazing jo at stamping over both white and black!

Next up is August, described as a “a full coverage gray like a fine, expensive leather wit mid-ranged, balanced tone.” This is a bit of a darker cool toned grey, especially when compared against Zoya’s Dove. Easily opaque in one thickish coat, August also did a great job at stamping over both light and dark colors!

Next up is Mallory, described as a “a full bodied, Prussian blue with deeply saturated color.” Mallory was also pretty easy to get opaque in one coat but it did leave me with some staining on my skin. This is a very vibrant blue that stamped beautifully over darker and lighter colors.

Next up is Wyatt, described as a “true racing green with a deep pigment, full coverage, and smooth application.” Wyatt is a deep forest green that leans a little on the cool side for me. I did do 2 coats here but that was only due to my application, I had a small low spot on my swatching nail that evened out beautifully at 2 coats. With careful application this can very easily be a one coater! Wyatt also stamped gorgeously over white and is much more subtle over black.

Next up is Tara and she is totally my favorite of the collection! Tara is described as a “a purple plum with a balanced tone between red and purple.” This deep vampy beauty is completely opaque in 1 coat, I did have some cuticle staining with this shade as well! Tara stamps very nicely over white and much more subtly over darker shades.

Lastly today I have Courtney, described as a “deep red beet root shade with a full coverage, and smooth application.” I will say that this is the only polish of the entire collection that I feel like really can use a second coat, Courtney has a very squishy almost jelly formula that still showed a bit of nail line at only 1 coat. Even with needing 2 coats this is my second favorite of the collection, this polish also stamps really well over white and is extremely subtle over black.
