Zoya Monica swatches & review

Hey everyone!
Всем привет!

So a while ago I got into a conversation on a livejournal message board, where a girl said she hesitated to buy more Zoya nail polish because her Monica didn't last a day on her. Being a Zoya fan myself, and having had to issues with their creams before, I just had to check myself. Luckily, I had a bottle of Monica sitting in my stash. The swatches were made right after I passed my last exam this winter, so my nails are longer here than they are now (and thus in the previous post).
Некоторое время назад в нейл_ру я увидела комментарий от одной из читательниц сообщества, в котором она говорила, что боится покупать больше лаков Zoya, поскольку Monica на ней держалась меньше дня. Поскольку я очень люблю эту фирму и особенно ее кремы, мне надо было проверить самой. Свотчи я сделала еще в конце января, сразу после того, как сдала последний экзамен, так что на них ногти длиннее, чем сейчас (и, таким образом, чем в предыдущем посте).

Monica is a dusty eggplant purple cream. In terms of apprication, it is, based on my experience, a typical Zoya. Can be worn as a one coater if you're more generous with it, however, I prefer to do 2 thin ones. It spreads out nicely, but isn't prone to pooling or anything. If you do end up with some imperfections, it doesn't stain your skin upon removal. Dries quite fast, it was dry to touch when I finished touching up the cuticle line (it usually takes me about 15 minutes), and the surface was very glossy, but I used a coat of INM OTD anyway, just because I always do.
Monica - это припыленный крем цвета баклажана. В плане нанесения она, по моему опыту, типичная Зоя. Можно носить в один слой, если сделать его потолще, я предпочитаю 2 тонких. По поверхности распределяется легко, затекать никуда не склонна, а если вы и допустите ошибку, то Моника легко удалится с кожи и кутикулы, ничего не окрасив. Сохнет довольно быстро, во всяком случае, к тому моменту, когда я закончила корректировать линию кутикулы (на это к меня обычно уходит около 15 минут), до покрытия можно было спокойно дотрагиваться, и сама по себе хорошо блестит, но я INM OTD не изменяю, так что на свотчах она в один слой покрыта этой сушкой. 

The polish lasted 2 days on me, and I experience no chipping, but then I decided to spice things up with 2 coats of Max Factor Fantasy Fire, and I had 2 major chips in one day. I'm not sure if it's because of the Zoya of the MF polish, though, since I've used FF once before, on a different undie, and it chipped on me just as fast.
За 2 дня носки ничего в покрытии не изменилось, а потом я решила освежить маникюр 2 слоями Max Factor Fantasy Fire, и в этот же день случилось 2 больших скола. Я не уверена, из-за Зои ли это или из-за MF, поскольку последнего я уже один раз носила на другой подложке, и ситуация была такая же. 

Bottom line: a beautiful color, an easy application, me gusta. Each to his/her own, ladies and gentlemen ;)
Завершу следующим: прекрасный цвет, легкое нанесение, мне нравится. Каждому свое, дамы и господа ;)

  1. I love shades like this! This one has a dusty quality that makes it a bit unusual. I think it's the FF. I remember that the first time I used it (over China Glaze Grape Pop) I had a major chip after less than a day. China Glazes usually last a ton on me and if they chip it's in tiny amounts and not big chunks like it did back then.

  7. Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but
    I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints for beginner blog writers? I'd really appreciate it.
