Today I have my swatches of the second half of the Urban Grunge collection available now from Zoya.com! These 6 shades make up the metallic holos, 3 are more metallic and 3 are more holo. These all did a phenomenal job at stamping and I will begin with the metallics. These were sent to me for review.

First up is Troy, described “a liquid pewter with a foil finish and an edgy touch of black and gold.” This ended up being one of my favorites of the entire collection! This one can be opaque in 1 coat but I did 2 for full opacity here. Troy is absolutely gorgeous when stamped!

Next up is Britta, described as “a berry metallic with a red and purple fuchsia flash.” This deep sigh berry shade is easily opaque in one coat and also looks amazing stamped!

Next up is Ash, described as “a vibrant cherry with a red and gold metallic shimmer.” This one is a much more fiery red shade when compared to Britta. This one is also beautiful stamped and is opaque in just one coat.

Now on to the more “holo” colors! First up is Merida, described as “a brilliant lush evergreen scattered holo.” This has a gorgeous deep green jelly base and is filled with a ton of tiny shredded holo glitters. If you love Storm, Blaze, Peyton, or Aurora you will love this! Opaque in 2 coats, this one is insane in the sun!

Next up is Finley, described as “a deep royal purpe scattered holo.” This is a beautiful purple jelly along the same lines in terms of formula as Merida. Completely gorgeously opaque in 2 coats

Lastly I have a fan favorite, Alicia, which is described as “a linear holo with a touch of gold.” Alicia has a true linear holo effect which is pretty mind-blowing when combined with all of the gold shimmer! This one does start out really sheer but builds up perfectly in 3 coats and is totally worth the effort! Alicia also stamps beautifully over darker colors.

So that wraps up my swatch and review of the metallic Holos from the Urban Grunge collection by Zoya for Fall 2016. I have a full stamping test on my youtube channel here if you are interested in seeing that and thank you so much for reading along!
