Since it’s the first day of fall here in the northern hemisphere, I thought it would be a good day to post Picture Polish Autumn.
Autumn is a burnt orange jelly based scattered holo that was released this summer. I used two coats, no topcoat here. It has a smooth jelly base, leaving a little bit of visible nail line. These first two photos are with flash.
In the shade:
I wanted to compare Autumn to LA Girl Electric Coral, another orange scattered holo jelly. Here is Electric Coral in the bottle next to Autumn. I also added an orange Pretty and Polished shade, Crush, to the comparison.
Thumb to pinkie in the photos below: Picture Polish Autumn, LA Girl Electric Coral, Autumn, Pretty and Polished Crush, Autumn. Each two coats plus top coat here, except for Crush which is three coats plus top coat (Crush dries slightly matte, hence the addition of top coat to everything).
The LA Girl is darker and redder with coarser/denser holo particles. Crush is totally different, much yellower and with much more subtle and finer holo particles.
I realized I had just gotten another polish that would be good to compare to Electric Coral, that being Glitter Gal Dorothy’s Revenge. Here it is in the bottle next to Electric Coral.
Here is the same comparison as before but with Dorothy’s Revenge instead of Crush on the ring finger.
Left to right: LA Girl Electric Coral, Picture Polish Autumn, Glitter Gal Dorothy’s Revenge, Autumn. I used three coats of Dorothy’s Revenge (plus topcoat).
In the bottle the Glitter Gal looks redder than the LA Girl, but on the nail it actually looks slightly oranger. The Glitter Gal is more sheer, meant to be a topper or a sheer jelly, so this makes sense. It’s kind of like a sheerer, less dense (in terms of holo particles) version of the LA Girl. They both lean more towards red/coral than the Picture Polish (as expected, given their names!).
