They look similar in the bottles--albeit Purple Medallion's holo flakies are just a hair bigger. LA Girl is definitely more refined and evenly spaced. I did three coats of both polishes. There is also a few shades difference with the purple base.
Dang. Forgot to get bottle pictures. I may come back and edit this post with pictures of the bottles. That's what I get for having life get in the way of polishing!
BY THE WAY--MY PHOTOS ARE WITH TOP COAT. I use Out the Door. Sadly, it DOES dull the effect a bit. (but just a hair!)

Purple Medallion, etc etc.
|Little to no direct sunlight.|
Direct sunlight, with a bit of a blur which shows the holo better. Also...yep, there we go. The persistent hair in every single post I make...
So there we go. Not quite dupes. They looked a lot similar in the bottle besides one being bigger than the other. Oh well!
