I had some issues applying this (mainly the formula seemed to get thin as I reached my tips) but it could have been much worse. I only needed to two coats to get complete coverage. It does dry a bit on the flat side-- I wish I had added a top coat to make it a bit shinier here. In the bottle this seems very close to Wet n Wild Toxic Apple, but The Mystic's Future is definitely more purple on the nail, rather than blue.

This shade isn't all that original, but I love these shimmery purples and can't seem to get enough of them!
I have to say, I've been pretty impressed with all the L'Oreal polishes I have tried so far. I only have four of them (all from the Project Runway collaborations), but I like the ones I have and they have been easy to work with. In the last year L'Oreal revamped and released a very large core line of nail polishes and I look forward to trying some of those in the future. I've definitely been enjoying their limited edition releases, so I would say this is a drugstore brand to keep an eye on.
