“A classic Hollywood icon”… MonroeThis stunning deep red jelly base with scattered holographic shimmer is called Monroe. What a fabulous name don’t you think? This was love at first sight. Three of my favorite things in one bottle, red, jelly and holo. The formula is perfect. Drying time is, like every jelly, average. I used two easy coats of Monroe plus top coat (Seche Vite).
I have a few polishes in my stash from the same (scattered/glitter holo) family as Monroe, so I did a little comparison to see if there are similarities. Let’s take a look:No dupes here! Monroe has the most similarities with OPI’s Extravagance. They both have a very fine holographic shimmer. Color wise: Monroe is a deep blood red while Extravagance is more a rich purple. Zoya’s Blaze is way brighter than Monroe. And Zoya’s Aurora has more holographic glitter instead of fine shimmer.
What do you think of Monroe?
