L’Oreal Never Lacque-ing Nail Lacquer ($5.99 for 0.39 fl. oz.) is a gray-tinged, light beige with a cream finish. This was a rather streaky polish, and the best application results were with three coats–two thinner coats and then one really thick coat at the end, though drying time was quite long with that method. I applied two coats on my pinky and middle fingers, and three coats on my index and ring fingers in the swatches. I normally get a week of wear out of L’Oreal’s lacquers. Rescue Beauty Lounge Thank You (LE, $20.00) is sheerer. MAC Endless Night (LE, $16.00) is darker. Essie Sand Tropez (LE, $8.00) is darker. Cult Nails Let’s Get Dirty (P, $12.00) is darker, rubber finish. See comparison swatches.
