Zoya Urban Grunge; Cremes

Good evening lovelies.  Hope your Friday has gone well!  Mine was nice and relaxing.  The house is clean, I did a lot of walking, had lunch with some girlfriends and the kids played with friends after school.  I'm racing tomorrow, but I have a lot of polish to swatch, and will be on the road a bit tomorrow so hopefully I have time to share more posts with you over the weekend.  For now I wanted to share the new Zoya Urban Grunge Cremes from the Fall 2016 collection.  Zoya makes really great cremes, the formula and application are always nice and easy to apply - which is really a huge factor in their popularity amongst the nail community.  These definitely fall right into line with the fantastic formula.  The creme set is only half of the entire set, but I thought I'd separate them out and focus on each group individually.  Urban Grunge is available now, you can pick them up for $10 each.  Let's jump in and check them out!

I started out with Noah.  Awww, that's the name of my oldest and I love it.  It's definitely gained popularity since he was born 10 years ago.  Noah is a mid-range taupe with tones of yellow and grey.    Formula and application were both great.  1 coat, no topcoat.


August is a basic grey creme.  It's a great, cool toned shade for the Fall that'll be easy to match up to many outfits.  Formula and application were nice.  I used 1 coat and no topcoat.  


Wyatt is a true racing green creme that is perfection.  This was my favorite of the collection.  The color and formula were fantastic.  I loved the opacity and creaminess of the polish.  Though I did end up using 2 coats to ensure I had full coverage and richness.  No topcoat.  


Mallory is a very saturated Prussian blue.  Formula was good, but it did end up staining my nails and skin so please wear base coat and paint carefully.  2 coats and no topcoat. 


Tara is a purple plum with a bit of a red undertone.  It's a gorgeous creme, captures the Fall season so well.  Fabulous formula and application.  I used 2 coats and no topcoat.  


Last but not least is Courtney.  It's a deep red beet root creme and it's awesome!  Another totally great color for the Fall.  Formula and application were both stellar.  I ended up wearing this one for a few days and really loved seeing a deeper color on my nails (yeah, I guess I'm over neon).  But when I removed it there was some staining on my nails and skin.  I used 2 coats and no topcoat.
