L’Oreal The Mystic’s Future Nail Lacquer
A Beautiful Eggplant of a Lacquer
L’Oreal The Mystic’s Future Nail Lacquer ($5.99 for 0.39 fl. oz.) is a vibrant fuchsia-shimmered eggplant purple. It has a very rich look with a lot of depth. Zoya Carly has a blacker base color. SpaRitual Shooting Star has larger flecks of shimmer and a darker base color. MAC So Rich, So Pretty is a bit purpler.
The color was opaque in two coats, and the dry down time was average. It had a good consistency; not too thick or too thin, so it flowed evenly across the nail without pooling, streaking, or bubbling. There are very faint brush strokes noticeable in natural light as well as brighter light, which did apply rather straight, but they are there. I typically see a full week of wear with L’Oreals Colour Riche formula with very minor tip wear but no chipping (without a base/top coat).
P.S. — I’m not sure what’s going on, but I’m pretty sure drugstore.com has The Mystic’s Future and The Mystic’s Fortune swapped for images, but I’m not sure if you’ll get the correct color if you order by the name, so you might want to pick it up at your local drugstore, though it is currently temporarily out of stock online. I’ve checked the labels on mine half a dozen times (and I purchased both at CVS) and feel like a crazy person!
