I always love getting the new Zoya collections & the Awakening one was absolutely beautiful- I fully swatched & reviewed it here. Monet came out with this collection & I decided to give it a post of its very own. Monet is beautiful but also has me torn- keep reading to find out why & check out the swatches!
Why is Monet throwing me off? The formula isn’t spectacular- & that is putting it nicely. It definitely has some goop & thickness issues. It needs some thinner which I’ll be adding after I use it as few times. The glitter is hard to grab because of the base unfortunately.
All swatches are over the Zoya Awakening Collection (full review & swatches here) & they are varying coats of Monet. The peach shade is Zoya Cole, purple is Zoya Hudson, & pink is Zoya Dot.
Zoya Monet- A cellophane glitter topper suspended in a clear base.
So is it my favorite glitter topper from Zoya? Nope. I’m actually not sure which is my absolute favorite because I love the flakies from back in 2012 I reviewed & the more recent Maria Luisa which I reviewed here as part of the Fall 2013 Satin release. That’s still one of my favorite fall releases ever…but now I’m getting off track.
Anyway. Recommending Monet? It depends. If you’re willing to really work with this glitter & eventually thin it out then I think you’ll love it. It really is instant spring to me- I feel like I almost have tiny Easter eggs on my nails. However, if you want to slap something on, I might urge you to look elsewhere. Monet is available for $10 from the Zoya website.
What do you think of Monet? Worth the work or are you passing? What are your favorite shades for spring this year?
