L'Oreal Limited Edition Project Runway 2012 Electric Fantasie Polishes

Whew that was a serious title. And these are some serious polishes. In total, there are 8 adorning the limited edition Project Runway displays around local drugstores (someone else's local, I have no drugstores in town, boo!), two in each subtype. I've got all 8 to show you (I know, I have a sickness when it comes to buying nail polish). I tried to do some simple nail art with each combo.

This is a pic heavy post, so just be warned!

L'Oreal Project Runway Electric Fantasie 2012 Nail Polish

The Queen

L'Oreal The Queen's Ambition, L'Oreal The Queen's Might
L'Oreal The Queen's Ambition, L'Oreal The Queen's Might

L'Oreal The Queen's Might is a sheer red, almost  hot pink polish. In the bottle it looks more bold and commanding, but on the nail it's very ... blah. It's a nice color, but it's a little sheer for my taste and the color isn't very impressive.

The Queen's Ambition is an opaque black polish with silver glitter. Think Owl's Night but in black. It's not that interesting (I'm not loving this Queen combo, am I?) but it's nice and opaque and I really appreciate the formula.

The Temptress

L'Oreal The Temptress' Touch, L'Oreal The Tempress' Power

L'Oreal The Temptress' Power is a yellow green with yellow shimmer. Interesting color, makes me think of those fugly colors that were so popular awhile ago. This particular color seems futuristic almost, but I can't pinpoint why. This one gave my problems with application. Thick, goopy, and took forever to dry. Definitely not my favorite, but it IS an interesting color.

L'Oreal The Temptress' Touch is a sheer nude-tan duochrome with light green shimmer. This one is really neat and my first grab when I saw the display. It's almost a sheer, lighter version of Maybelline Downtown Brown that was released recently. I think this would look great layered over a darker brown or nude, but on its own, it's way too sheer. This was six coats and there is still a visible nail line. Visually interesting though. One of my top picks.

The Muse

L'Oreal The Muse's Attitude, L'Oreal The Muse's Inspiration

L'Oreal The Muse's Attitude is a dark green blue polish with shimmer. On the nail it dries a bit flat but a shiny top coat perks it right up. This one did pull more than the others given I used the same top coat for all (Seche Vite). Not much to say about this one.

L'Oreal The Muse's Inspiration is a gorgeous medium orange with shimmer. Lots of depth and it is a chameleon! Bright orange, medium, darker with bright shimmer. I was really impressed with this one!

The Mystic

L'Oreal The Mystic's Future, L'Oreal The Mystic's Fortune

L'Oreal The Mystic's Fortune is a magenta leaning purple with shimmer. Nice color, I feel like I've seen this color a lot, but it's definitely eye catching and I can't say I have anything like it in my stash. Formula was a little watery so it liked to pool at the cuticles.

L'Oreal The Mystic's Future is a gorgeous dark purple with shimmer. My pictures make it look super blue, which it's not. Let's all say it together ... Purples are so hard to photograph! The above pictures are closer to reality but this formula applied like a dream! 

Whew! Are you still with me? =) All done! Hope that was helpful in case you were thinking about picking up one, or two, or eight.

I know this is pretty late and this collection has been out awhile, and may be even hard to find at this point, but I lost two of the polishes for awhile and just now found them, so I'm posting this a quickly as possible!

I promise to work on my nail art to showcase colors! =P Some weren't that inventive and my fav, the tape mani, didn't show up well because of the colors. Live and learn!


  1. I've got a silver L'oreal polish do you find them a little watery? Great haul!
