So what's the deal with these? Details, after the jump...
This new line is already listed on the L'Oreal website, so here's the product description:
High intensity color with up to 14 day pro-results.
Introducing Pro-Last Nailcolor intense color for a pro-finish that lasts. This unique two-step system offers highly pigmented color that glides on without streaking. The custom-tinted top coat amplifies the color and shine.

Four of the 18 shades in the new L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Last Nail Color line
The concept seems pretty simple, right? But what I find curious is that the "custom-tinted top coat" that "amplifies the color and shine" is clear for some of the shades, while tinted for others (you can check out all 18 shades here for a closer look).
Looking at the pic above, you can see that the top coat is clear for the taupe shade, blue for the lavender shade, pink for the pink shade and blue for the blue shade. So if these are supposed to amplify the color, why do some of the shades have a clear top coat, while others have a tinted tinted top coat? Will the the colors with the tinted top coats look more intense on the nails than the colors with the clear top coats? And why do some of the top coats match the polish colors, while others don't? So many questions!
I'm sure I'll eventually try one of these (and of course review it for you) but I have to be honest and say that I'm not always a huge fan of these double-ended polishes. This packaging style sometimes makes the polishes prone to drying out a bit quicker than traditional bottles (I'm looking at you, Revlon Nail Art polishes!), but maybe L'Oreal has found a way to fix that issue. At any rate, I'm always excited about new polishes so...yeah.
Any thoughts about this new line? I'd love to hear from you!
Thank again, @linsview, for the great sighting and pic!
