Yesterday I shared the Zoya Urban Grunge One Coat Creams and today I’ve got swatches of the Metallic Holos!
These are beautiful, rich polishes…let’s just jump on in!
Alicia is described by the brand as a linear holo with a touch of gold. I got this and change my mani to it the same night. I LOVE this polish and could not stop staring at it. It’s at once very feminine, light, but brilliant in light and glowing with the gold in shade. I found her to be most beautiful in lower, natural lighting, which is the first two photos, and the last is under my book light, believe it or not! I was lying in bed staring at my nails, so in love!
Check out my next post, where I’m going to talk more about the Naked Manicure and process for doing this mani, which didn’t even chip the days I wore it – I’m talking, no tip wear, even.
Ash is described by the brand as a vibrant cherry with a red and gold metallic shimmer. This is my third favorite from the collection! Ash pops on the hand, and the metallic finish and colors swirled in her make her look so glossy! Here’s a polish that I used two coats of, that I could have gotten away with one.
Troy is described by the brand as a liquid pewter with a foil finish and an edgy touch of black and gold. I love the blackened look of this metallic. Troy was heavily pigmented in one coat but I did two. It’s not my favorite of the collection, but it’s a color I will certainly reach for – a gun metal-type color always seems to be good on hand!
Britta is described by the brand as a berry metallic with a red and purple, fuchsia flash. There’s a little bit of golden touch in the bottle, too, that doesn’t necessarily translate to the nail, but I’m cool with that. This polish could have been a one-coat-wonder but I’m a stickler for using two.
Finley is described by the brand as a deep royal purple scattered holo. This nail polish is a stunner. It’s got a glow to it, like the holo particles are suspended in the pigmented, jelly base. You need two coats of this one, because it’s a little thinner due to the base and design of it. But it’s beautiful – it’s my second favorite polish in this collection!
There are two pics because I couldn’t pick which one I liked best!
Merida is described by the brand as a brilliant lush evergreen scattered holo. Just like Finley, Merida seems lit from within, the holo floating in the green jelly base. This one was also most definitely a two-coater, the first coat is a little thinner but it’s perfectly opaque after two! I didn’t even capture here all the holo beauty of this polish!
The formula on all of these was great; only Finley, Alicia and Merida were two-coaters but didn’t require three for me to achieve opacity. The brush on Zoya polishes is great for my medium-sized nail beds; there’s room for me to be more precise, which equates to less clean-up after application.
I found it a little odd that the entire collection is labeled “metallic holo” when only three of them are holo, but I love the variety – to me Alicia is her own beauty, Finley and Merida are a pair, and Ash and Britta are metallic with a golden glow in their bottles and Troy is more foiled metallic. There’s great variety.
So again today, I ask with this set – which of the Metallic Holos will be available for purchase on August 15, 2016, on Zoya.com. They will retail for $10 ea.(US), and surely be sold as a set as well.
As always, I just don’t feel this collection can be missed. Zoya always stuns for fall, and this year it’s no exception.
Let me know in the comments which one(s) is/are your favorite!
