Zoya Monica

You would think someone with so much nail polish would have pretty much everything right? Well, I'm sure to non-nail polish people I have more than enough. I did realize I was missing something from my stash recently, and Zoya Monica fixed that right up. Monica is from Zoya Fall 2012 Designer collection.


Monica is a dark muted blue-toned purple creme.

You know what I realized? There are a ton of red-toned dark and muted purples out there for fall. I honestly think they are overdone. It's a great color, but I have a lot of shades like that. What I realized is I did not have any blue-toned purple shades for fall. I have a few that are more spring-summery themed, but nothing that were more suited towards fall. Zoya Monica comes in..problem solved. This is a great color. It's rich and deep. The formula was great on this. I'm finding Zoya's formula to be consistently great over the this past year. I approve!

P.S. Whenever I hear the name Monica, I think of the singer Monica, and this song she did with Brandy. This takes me back to 7th grade. I can't believe this was 14 years ago!

Happy Friday!


  1. This is a really nice purple! I always find the ones I have are too dark like plum or too light like lavender.. This one seems like a medium grape one, which is just what I am looking for.

    Thanks Steph!

  2. I like Monica and Toni from this collection. New to Zoya(GMA promo were my first) and am kind of glad I am not falling head over heels with their polish-the remover is a different story, LOVE. But I really like Monica because it reminds me of Dior Purple Mix for some reason. Maybe the same kind of tone there or dusty purple color-definitely not a dupe, though, but it has a similar feel. I am looking forward to wearing Monica a lot this fall. She looks gorgeous on you!

  3. I like this color. I've been searching for a dark purple for so long

  4. This is beautiful!! I am all about purples and all different versions of it. Might have to add this to my collection soon!

    I love that song! I was 16 and remember playing it over and over when it came out. Lol Crazy it was 14 years ago!

  5. really pretty shade :) But I agree, purples like this are a bit overdone...

  6. I personally don't own many red toned purples -- among my many, MANY purples -- but this one is just so classy. Looks fabulous on you!

  7. That is such a pretty color! I love me a good purple polish.

  8. You need to give it up, had about enough. It's not hard to see the Boy. Is. Mine!

    I love this color, so simple but so beautiful

  9. I totally remember that song! "Monica" makes me think of Friends. :) Such a pretty color!

  10. I actually don't think I own a purple quite like this somehow... so pretty. and the boy is mine...lololol awkward teenage memories of the day!

    I love that this is blue-toned! Fantastic purple. And OMG, blast from the past- that song was so popular! It was everywhere.
