Creative musings in bright colors


Ahh, grapes. I have been staring at this art by Nails and Towel for weeks now, wondering when I ever had the courage (and time) to attempt such detail. Luckily, I had some free time this weekend, and the perfect new polish! Meet Monica by Zoya.


Monica (shown here with Rue) is a beautiful dark grape purple. She is a true purple creme, and exactly what I have been looking for! She applied smoothly in two coats. And this, ladies, is why I think Zoya does cremes perfectly. Finally, a dark purple that doesn’t look black 😀



I then went ahead and added grapes and leaves. There are three colors of purple and two shades of green in there! The boyfriend thought this was a stamp and so was unimpressed. No stamping today!


~ Dark purple: Zoya – Monica
~ Medium purple: Zoya – Malia
~ Light purple: Sally Hansen – Lacey Lilac
~ Nude/purple: Zoya – Rue
~ Dark green: Sinful Colors – Last Chance
~ Green: Sinful Colors – Exotic Green


Hope you enjoyed! I actually haven’t decided what I’m posting tomorrow just yet, so it’s going to be a surprise 😀

    Wow I’m so impressed also. I thought that they were decals upon first glance, nice work.

  2. Great detail work! I’m glad you decided to try this design because you executed it winningly! I’m also a big Zoya fan and looove Monica. Though it’s more berry than purple, I think my favorite Zoya in this shade range is Demi. (She’s on my toes right now.) Oh, and your boyfriend thinking it was stamping was “sour” grapes. Yes, I went there. 😉

    • oooh demi is pretty…i went on a pink-toned purple rampage earlier this year and ended with ciara, veronica, and margo. now i don’t know what to do with all of them!! and oh my god delphi sour grapes hahahahahaha!!

  3. So gorgeous! I love this! 🙂
