Cult Nails Morning Glory Nail Lacquer ($12.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is an “eye-catching shade of magenta that dries to a perfect wax finish.” It’s a medium-dark, fuchsia with a wax finish, so it has a vinyl-like look that’s mostly matte but has a slight sheen.  MAC Toco Toucan is similar but dries to a shiny finish. MAC Girl About Town is very similar but isn’t a wax finish. MAC Embrace Me is cooler-toned and shiny. L’Oreal Members Only is lighter and shiny. China Glaze Love’s a Beach is shimmery and shiny. China Glaze Escaping Reality is lighter. Essie Super Bossa Nova is iridescent and cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

It was opaque in two coats, and it applied evenly, but the wax finish definitely isn’t forgiving if your nails aren’t perfectly smooth.  I would recommend using a ridge-filling base coat to help create a more even surface from the get go.  The drying time is faster than average, and it’s important to let each coat fully dry before applying a second coat to prevent the second coat from tugging at the previously-applied coat.  When I tried Morning Glory for wear, it lasted seven days with minor tip wear but no chipping, but it did have more tip wear than I normally see with Cult Nails’ other shades (with a glossier finish). If you’re not a fan of the wax finish, you can apply a top coat and get a shiny finish that way.
