L. A. Girl ~ Rock Star ~ Overdose


L. A. Girl ~ Rock Star ~ Overdose
Clear base packed with purple and blue glitters


I wanted to wear this polish on its own, but after having applied the first coat I realized that I might as well give that up right away and layer it over another polish. Otherwise it would possibly have made me sit up all night and half the following day applying layer after layer to make it opaque.

So I started with one coat of Essence’s “Black is back”, which is a black crème. This glided on easily and almost covered properly in one coat. Had I been wearing it on its own I would have applied a second coat, but since it was only working as underwear for Overdose, I couldn’t be bothered. Drying time for this Essence was surprisingly on the slow side. It’s the first time I’ve experienced that with an Essence product.

Anyway, this post isn’t about Essence, so I applied two very easy coats of Overdose. The glitter spread out easily, no problems with it at all. Drying time was again a bit on the slow side, but not dramatically boring. :D

Here’s how it looks. Two coats of L. A. Girl’s Overdose and one coat of Poshé top coat:


Nice, eh?

Here’s a blurry pic so you can see how the glitter shines. It’s sooooo pretty!



The name “Rock Star” is definitely well picked, in my opinion. I love this mani!

  1. Ooh so pretty!! I love chunky glitters too but a glitter like this really reminds me how much I like multi coloured micro glitters.

    1. I don't think I've seen a size glitter I didn't like yet. I've seen quite a few brands mix blue and purple glitters. I'll see what I have, and perhaps do a comparison post about them. :)
