Anona "( Roman Goddess of Harvest ) is a gorgeous blackened olive green with gold shimmer and glass flecks". This polish is a great fall color with a beautiful sparkle. I love the glass fleck in this polish, it works perfectly! I think this is my favorite out of this collection

I did 3 coats of Anona. I was expecting 2 coats but it built up nicely after the 3rd. I didn't have any issues. The application and dry time were both great.

Akiko "( Japanese for Bright Autumn Child ) is a beautiful bright holographic rusty orange".This polish cones to life when the sun hits the holo dust. Orange is the best fall color, I think, and holo makes it so much better!

This is also 3 coats of Akiko. I didn't have any application or drying issues. :)

Scarlet is a stunning cranberry red with scattered holo to make it light from within and nice blue/purple sheen. This color can take you right into next year's Holiday season if you want. Super pretty and perfect for any season! This type of color is my go-to pedicure color. :P

I did 2 coats of Scarlet. I again had no issues with this polish! I've only swatched ATC polishes 1x prior to this and I'm falling in love with the great application and dry times.

Aphaea "( Greek Goddess of Agriculture and Fertility ) is a pretty dusty grey purple with a light dusting of holo shimmer and a gorgeous purple/pink sheen". The purple sheen was a bit more obvious in the bottle, I was hoping it would be on the nail but it wasn't :[ Howeverrrrr, when it hits the sun it lights up with bright purple sparkle! I'm not a fan of grey colors, but a grey-purple, SIGN ME UP!

I did 2 coats of Aphaea. I had no issues with application, it was smooth and iwthout problems. Dry time was also great. That's 4 for 4 with this collection - 4 great applications and 4 great dry times :]
