Mason Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “red violet metallic.” It’s a rich, metallic fuchsia-shimmered plummy red. It was opaque in two coats, and it applied smoothly and evenly. L’Oreal The Mystic’s Future is slightly purpler, less pink. Illamasqua Charisma is redder. Zoya Izzy is pinker. Zoya Carly is purpler.
