L’Oréal’s The Mystic’s Fortune

Such a gorgeous color! And…such a brushstrokey formula. (Damn.) It's a lovely shade, rich blue-violet, a metallic finish. And unfortunately it holds onto brushstrokes like the Texas Legislature holds onto their belief that they control womens' bodies. (But nah, I'm not bitter about their fuckery. Not in the slightest.) I may try using a different brush to apply this polish, see if that settles things. I may also try adding just the tiniest bit of polish thinner, and see if that helps the spreadability.

This polish was limited edition, and was one of the fastest colors to be snapped up; but you can still find bottles for sale on Ebay for not-completely-outrageous prices.
