LA Girl Color Addict Idol
Hi everyone, and welcome to 2012! I hope you all had a fun and safe New Year’s Eve.
I’ll start off this year by stating once and for all that I’ve thrown out my policy of not “starting” new brands. Why limit myself when there’s so many awesome colors out there? And to show you that I mean business, here’s a polish from a brand I’ve never tried before!
I fell head over heels for LA Girl Color Addict Idol after seeing Steffels’ gorgeous swatches. (Steffels has caused a lot of dents in my wallet lately, her Lynnderella swatches are to DIE for!) Idol is a super gorgeous dusty blue with fine golden shimmer, and you know I just can’t resist anything with gold in it! This is so pretty, it reminds me of a blue version of OPI Peel Me A Gobi Grape.
The formula was great, easy to apply and very pigmented. You could get away with one thick coat, but I used two thin coats to prevent any bald spots. The brush isn’t my favorite, though, it’s a little too long and floppy for my taste. It works fine as long as I paint slowly.
I bought this at Cherry Culture, my first haul from them ever. I’m guessing there will be more, because there were no problems whatsoever with ordering (other than choosing which goodies to buy, I guess). The Color Addicts are $2.50 a piece.
