LA Girls Rockstar, Addict and a comparison

This is the last of my LA Girls Rockstar collection, and she is absolutely, absolutely lovely.  Addict is a warm, deep red that leans a little towards a brick color, a jelly, and it is interspersed with tiny little gold flakies. This is three coats.

Let me give you a side picture--click on it to see that awesome depth:

So autumnal.

But the polish sounds familiar, right?  I figured it'd be some sort of dupe to ChG Stroll, so I dug it out for comparison. And here it is:

From left to right: Stroll, Addict, Stroll, Addict.

Uuum, not even close, actually. Definitely related, and I don't think anybody who isn't a nail polish addict needs more than one, but there's a huge difference in color and flake. Stroll is far deeper at three coats and the flakes are heavier, sinking into the polish and giving it a pink, rather than gold, feel. Addict remains a lighter red and the flakes are both larger and lighter, thereby allowing the gold to peek through. I love both of them, and I'm not sure which I love more, so I will be keeping both. :)

And yes, I will be swatching Stroll sometime in the future! Keep your eyes open.


  1. lovely color! i like the glittery effect.

  2. jenobebs: thanks! I love how it reminds me of falling leaves.

    Lacquer Ware for Tips and Toes: yus! It's def. one of my favorites, for sure. :) Thanks so much!

  3. I have this. It doesn't look as good on me. I must try harder!

  4. jaljen: whaaat, I don't believe it! D: Show!

  5. Oh stunning! I have one (1!!) red polish. Need to expand my red stash, I clearly see that!
