L'Oreal The Mystic's Fortune Nail Lacquer
L’Oreal The Mystic’s Fortune Nail Lacquer

Walk the Runway with a Fortune on Your Hands

L’Oreal The Mystic’s Fortune Nail Lacquer ($6.29 for 0.39 fl. oz.) is a deep, inky blue-based purple with blue and violet shimmer. SpaRitual Blue Moon is lighter and a bit bluer. ORLY Lunar Eclipse has such a different finish, and it’s much brighter. MAC Rain of Flowers is more violet. Zoya Mimi has chunkier shimmer/sparkle. China Glaze First Class Ticket is very similar, though a little more subdued.

It was fully opaque after two coats, and it wasn’t too thick or too thin (though it leaned on the thicker side), so I didn’t have any application problems. There were no bubbles, streaks, or pools of polish gathered along the edges of my nails.  I tested out the wear of this shade in particular, and it lasted a full seven days without chipping and had very minor tip wear.

It's a great dark shade for fall/winter that doesn't get so dark that it turns black--it always looks blue-purple with a hint of shimmer.

  1. Lovely color! How do you keep your cuticles looking so good like this? Why is the pigmentation at 19/10 ? :)) Thanks for sharing and love your website.

    I just bought and am currently wearing “the temptress’ power” sort of a copper/gold duochrome with a little green…. OMG it is amazing. The color and wear and ease of application shocked me it was soo good I’ve had it on my hands for five days and it still looks gorgeous…. the ONLY other brand I can get this kind of wear out of is illamasqua. Everything else in existence chips on me in two days, INCLUDING UV gel polish. (Fun aside: i live near l’oreal and do consumer testing for them, so I got a full OPI gel manicure before the product officially launched. It all chipped off my nails within a week. The technicians couldn’t believe it and told me I must have very oily nails)

  3. So lovely! I am happy I already own First Class Ticket. *gets to save money*

  4. WOW! Gorgeous. Wishlisted!

    Really gorgeous ! L’Oréal nail polishes are pretty I mean now, good range of coulours and classy bottle. I don’t have any but this one is beautiful.

  6. This is an absolutely gorgeous shade x

    Hi Christine,

    Do you plan on reviewing any other pieces from L’Oreal’s The Mystic collection/line? I’m curious about the purple lipstick and gloss.

  8. Gorgeous color–I really want this one and The Queen’s Ambition (which I had hoped would be a dupe for Illamasqua Creator but I now realize is different. Still, I think it could be pretty…)

    I’m wearing VIP status right now, which I purchased after your review. (I LOVED the color!)
    I usually purchase “higher end” polishes and have been so pleasantly surprised with the quality and wear. I’m loving this color too and will be purchasing this very soon. Also loving the price. I hope they keep coming out with more fun colors and at the same time keep the quality consistent.

    I think this shade is The Mystic’s Future, no? The Mystic’s Fortune one is a light purple :)

    • The Mystic’s Future is more magenta-y, The Mystic’s Fortune is a dark purple (this one). I have only photographed The Mystic’s Fortune, which is as shown here :)

      • Lindsay

        I think Lanny is right, and the fastest/easiest way to check is your drugstore.com link at the bottom of the post…

        • Hi Lindsay,

          Drugstore.com has either the names or the photos representing the product mixed up, because I triple-checked (before even replying to Lanny) my bottles, as I own *both* of them, which I purchased myself in a local store.

  11. This is a really nice shade…too bad I already have a dark, shimmery cobalt blue.

    This is GORGEOUS!

    On my monitor that looks a lot like Illamasqua Phallic. I wonder if you can comment on the difference. I assume it leans more purple?

  14. Oh my god, what a gorgeous polish — I honestly cannot believe that’s L’Oreal! <3

    I have First Class Ticket and love it, but it’s blue and the L’Oreal is purple. So maybe I’ll get this. :)
