Zoya ~ Finley



Zoya ~ Finley
Royal purple with scattered holo flakes

Finley is the last of the three polishes from the Urban Grunge collection from Autumn 2016. I have already shown you Ash and Britta – click on the links to be taken to those posts if you missed them.

The formula is just as good as the other two and so was the coverage. I used two coats for my mani and the drying time is really good too.

This is what two coats and no topcoat look like:


I really like the look of the holo particles in Finley, they’re gorgeous!


This picture is taken in the lightbox. There’s so much going on in this polish.


I did check out the rest of the collection but decided to give the rest a miss. The six crème polishes should be really good, but you probably know by now that I tend to find crèmes a bit boring in the long run.

Did you get any from this collection?

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Really good
Finish: Jelly with holo flakes
Overall impression: This is a really pretty polish of good quality
Buy again: Yes

Zoya ~ Britta



Zoya ~ Britta
Berry metallic with red, purple and pink shimmer

Britta is from the Urban Grunge collection from Autumn 2016, just like Ash, that I showed you yesterday.

The formula is equally good and covers well too. I used two coats for my mani but I could easily have got away with one. The drying time is really good too. The formula seems to thicken a bit while I use it, but it’s nothing that a good shake can’t make up for.

This is what two coats and no topcoat look like:


The shimmer is just A.Mazing!

I topped it with a glitter from Chaos & Crocodiles called Bwahaha! It’s a purple, red and blue glitter in a large number of shapes: Stars, circles, squares, hexagons; you name it. It has been over three years since I used it last but it’s still in great shape and didn’t require thinner. The glitter needs to be moved a bit around with the brush in order to cover most of the nails, but that’s a minor thing. I love this glitter!


Britta is a winner, just like Ash is. I can’t wait to show you the last of the three. I wonder if you can guess which one I picked as my third polish from the Urban Grunge collection. Hint: It isn’t one of the crèmes! :D


Number of coats: 2, but 1 could have been enough
Drying time: Really good
Finish: Metallic shimmer
Overall impression: I love the colour and the shimmer. The quality is amazing!

Zoya ~ Ash



Zoya ~ Ash
Cherry red with red and gold metallic shimmer

Ash is from the Urban Grunge collection from Autumn 2016. There are 12 polishes in the collection; 6 crèmes and 6 shimmery holos/metallic shimmers. I bought three of the collection and Ash is the first to shine on the blog.

The formula is really good and covers good. I used two coats for my mani but I could easily have got away with one. The drying time is really good too.

I made a bit of stamping on it, just because I was in the mood, so this is my final mani including topcoat.


I like creepy crawlies all year so my Halloween plates are good for other seasons than the month of October :D


Ash is a winner for sure, I am really impressed with the polish. The colour is really nice and the formula is so good.
