Zoya Holographic Nail Polish Swatch and Review

I am just so excited about the Zoya Urban Grunge Collection coming out, that I decided to revisit the OG Zoya holos.  For some reason, I never blogged about these, so now's a great time to use them again!  I bought some of these through and some from Ulta.

Zoya Dream
A bold blue jelly with a scattered holographic effect from the Zoya Holiday 2013 Zenith Collection.

It is a bit sheer on the first coat, but builds up well in three coats.  I went through a blue nail polish obsession period, which I refer to as my blue period, and this was my favorite of the Zoya holos for awhile.

Zoya Payton
A dark purplish/burgundy with a jelly base and scattered holographic effect.

This is very similar in formula to Dream.  I only did two coats, but my swatch probably needed three.  The scattered holo isn't as prominent as Dream.  This one is currently my favorite since I just started going through a vampy period.  And, by just now, I meant right  now..starting with this swatch.  I'm ready for all the burgundies and oxbloods.  I think that will be my favorite shade for fall!

Zoya Blaze
Deep cranberry red with scattered holographic effect from the Zoya Ornate 2012 Collection.

The formula on this one is a bit more opaque and I got full coverage with two coats.  The scattered holo isn't quite as intense as Dream but not as subtle as Payton.  It's a happy medium.  This is one of my favorite reds of all time.

Zoya Aurora
A plum purple with scattered holographic effect like whoa, also from the Ornate Collection.

This is my most used of the holos.  Sometimes I only use two coats and sometimes three.  So, don't ask me how many coats is typical, because it just depends on how I paint at the time.

The last past Zoya holographic polish I need is Storm.  In case you're keeping tabs, my next Zoya purchase will include Storm and two lipsticks, plus a few other polishes.  You know, when I was updating my wishlist, I realized I don't own Charisma.  What the heck?

Speaking of Zoya lipsticks, I'm still pretty obsessed with mine.  Check out my review of Candy and Mellie.  I wore Mellie to a brunch today and received a lot of compliments!

I also received the Urban Grunge Collection today!!!!!  I can't wait to try out the new holos and the cremes look so awesome!  I'll make sure I get on those stat.  I'll also have lots o' comparisons.
