Zoya Monica

Continuing with Zoya's Designer Fall 2012 Collection, today I have Monica to show you. Monica is a dark grape purple with strong blue undertones in a creme finish.







Compared with Toni, the other dark purple from the collection, Monica is a few shades darker and more blue. While Toni leans more red and comes across as a burgundy purple, Monica's blue tint makes it more of a grape/eggplant purple. Monica's formula is a little thicker, so a few drops of thinner would be helpful. Otherwise, you will need to overload the brush a little, so that it doesn't run out of polish and pull and drag as it reaches the nail's free edge.

You can find Monica on Zoya.com for $8 for 0.5 fl oz. If you are new to Zoya, you can get your first two bottles of Zoya for $8 total and free shipping! More info HERE.

  1. I like the blue undertones, but I think it's a tad too dark for me. I'd definitely spice it up with glittah! :D

      Between this and Toni, I also prefer Toni just a little more. I think the blue undertones in Monica look a little harsh against my skin.
