Vintage Valentines - L'Oreal Shock Proof - Plum Mystique 700

Plum pearl  

Today's valentine comes from the early years of this century, by that I mean 2002ish!

The oddly named L'Oreal  Shock Proof range (why does your polish need to be shock proof?) is also Extreme Wear.  It makes it sound like, in a post apocalyptic world, all that will be left are cockroaches sporting natty coats of L'Oreal polish!

Anyhow, no idea where this one came from, may have been part of a random eBay bundle?

Despite being so old it's Toulene and Formaldehyde free - and looks like it might be a Canadian edition

Plum Mystique is a pretty, slightly blackened plum pearl/shimmer.

Application was good, I know some folk don't like the long narrow brush on these but it works fine on my tiny nails.  And no thinner required.

Swatches are 2 coats, no top coat.

Anyone else got any old L'Oreals?  Although they're not particularly collectable, they were produced in relatively large quantities across the world so seem to still be available from ebay and car-boot sales.
