L. A. Girl Rock Star ~ Groupie


L. A. Girl ~ Rock Star ~ Groupie
Purple duochrome 


When I bought this polish I thought it was just a very shimmery, pretty  purple. I wasn’t aware that it’s actually a duochrome, shifting between two tones of purple. That was a nice surprise.

The formula is great and applies easily. It covered perfectly in two coats and dried pretty fast between the layers.

No top coat yet:


I stamped on it, using Barry M’s “Lilac foil”. It’s a lavender foil, which is perfect for stamping. I didn’t want the stamp to take over the entire manicure, that’s why I didn’t just use plain silver for the stars. I used a stamping plate from Essence.

Here’s how it ended up looking with a generous coat of top coat.


I quite like it. I’ll definitely see if I can get my hands on my L. A. Girl polishes!


Opacity: 9/10
Colour, prettiness: 10/10
Durability: 9/10
Value for money: 10/10
Overall: 9.5/10
