Comparison: Zoya Urban Grunge Metallics and Holos, part 1

(Press samples and affiliate links ahead!)

Hello!


A while back I did a series of comparisons of the Zoya Urban Grunge Cremes, and I'm back now to tackle the metallics and holos! For each of the polishes I went through the Zoyas I have (by no means all of them, lol!) to find the closest match I have and do a comparison. Let's start with Zoya Britta, a beautiful fleck-finish berry. The closest thing in my collection is Zoya Mason:

Even in the bottle, it's pretty clear these are fairly different. Let's take a look at them on the nail:

Yep, they're in the same family, but they're pretty different. I love the purple shimmer on Mason, but wow--that metallic berry of Britta. I absolutely believe both of these deserve a place in your collection.


Next, let's take a look at Zoya Troy, and the closest match I could find in my collection, last year's Zoya Tris:


Zoya Troy vs. Zoya Tris
Zoya Troy vs. Zoya Tris

These do look different in the bottle, but they are also pretty darn similar. Let's see how they look on the nail:


Zoya Troy vs. Zoya Tris
Zoya Troy vs. Zoya Tris

Yup, these are both in the silver family, and when you wear them each alone, the first thing you see is 'silver'. But Tris has a decidedly green bent, while Troy is more up-front silver, with a nice hint of purple to it. Again I think both of these deserve a place in your collection.


So, I'm not saying there aren't closer dupes in the Zoya family, but at least from the Zoyas in my collection, these are distinct enough from their closest cousins to deserve a look.


Happy polishing!
