Frenzy Polish Autumn Symphony

My first foray into Frenzy Polish has been sitting here unloved for more than a few months, but seeing swatches of something else by her reminded me about the couple of fantastic flakies that I needed to get around to, including Autumn Symphony.

Autumn has a pretty perfect name:  this isn't the super pale and bright blue of a summer sky, but a heavier cadet blue of cooler weather with a few storm clouds.  Its rich, creamy base is packed with metallic copper and tiny red flakies, just the color of crushed fall leaves.

This was nicely opaque in 2 coats, and was fantastically self-leveling to a lovely glossy smoothness.  One layer of topcoat, and this was nice & glassy.  This is, of course, the type of blue that will cling like a barnacle to your cuticles, so be sure to paint careful and be handy with the clean-up brush.

The flakes were in no way shy, with a high enough contrast that the speckled finish was plenty visible even at arm's length.

To match the copper flakes, I stamped with Hit the Bottle's Copper Haired Girl using a geometric feathers or chevrons pattern off of Bundle Monster's BM-410 plate.

I'm REALLY loving the HTB stamping polishes!!
Rating:  somewhere between 3 and 4 out of 5 stars.  The formula is fantastic, and this polish wore like iron - I wore it for a few days on its own, then kept it on after the stamping for a few more, total of 5+ days.  I'm just still not sure that this blue works on me, with just a tinge of lobster hands.

Where to buy:  direct from Frenzy.
