L.A. Girl Glitter Addict Nail Polish Swatches & Review

L.A. Girl has a line out of nail polish called Glitter Addict.

Glitter Addict polishes come in 16 different colors and contain various shapes and sizes of glitter. The ones I tried were large hexagonal, small round and micro-glitter pieces.

These come in a clear base, so ideally layering them over another color is probably the best look. I swatched them on their own so you can see how jam packed with glitter they actually are.


Inspire

Inspire is a rose-gold color and my favorite of the three I tried. You don’t often see rose-gold anything, so this is kind of unique I think. There is A LOT of glitter in these polishes. Sparse they are not. They are thick though and can be hard to work with. You will want to wait in-between all coats for awhile lest you wipe off the glitter from the base as you layer on another coat.


Nostalgic

Nostalgic is a blue glitter with holographic micro-glitter. I think this one would look really cool layered actually. I like that they added the holo glitter.


Animate

Animate is a classic red glitter. Reminds me of Christmas!

Overall:

I always prefer to wear clear-based glitters over another color because I don’t like them on their own. All of these ones did contain a ton of glitter in them, which is great. They are a pain in the rear to remove though. The micro-glitter especially want to get all over the place.

Availability: Their website or where ever L.A. Girl is sold

Pricing: $4.00

    Can you anwer me a question please? Do you know when Chanel Peridot is coming to Europe?

    • August 1, 2011

      Hi Ida,

      I know a few bloggers in Europe who have gotten it, but not sure if they ordered here and had it shipped or not. I don’t have a Chanel PR contact or I would ask for you, sorry!

    Unrelated, but your banner is hilarious. I just got back home after a week, and our yard is fried.

      Hi Katy,

      That photo is from my backyard, haha!

    for layering I Guess and I also agree with Niki with Black Glitter

  • August 1, 2011

    I’ve seen the black glitter one around and it looks really cool, too. I’m thinking I need to collect all of these. Thank you so much for the swatches!

    These look pretty nice. Must check my Dollar Store since this brand is all they seem to get.

    I love LA girl polishes. They used to sell them at Forever 21 and at Wal Mart in Los Angeles- now I have a hard time finding them around here. Anyone know who carries them?

    • August 3, 2011

      Forever21 around here (New Hampshire) still gets them, but it’s their brand Love & Beauty. For example they had a gorgeous shade called “Currant” that I knew was a dupe of one of the LA Girls Rockstar polishes. I bought it anyway and compared and yup, exact dupe. (I don’t mind having a back up! lol) So check again.

      Hot Topic also gets LA Girls polishes, so you could check there too.

      You might want to check Cherry Culture too especially since they regularly run sales and have coupon codes for free shipping. Might make it worth your while to order online.

    That red one would be good for Christmas or something

  • August 1, 2011

    I bought several of these, and I love them, especially the black glitter.

  • August 1, 2011

    Love these glitters! I need to place an order soon! My favorite is the black glitter.

  • August 1, 2011

    These look like they’d be really fun to layer over a lot of crazy colours. I like how there are different-sized pieces of glitter. Makes it more interesting.

  • August 2, 2011

    Woah, cool! I want them all!

    I own the red, the black and a greenblue glitter and only ever tried them layered over black. looked great, but the removal takes a long time, even with soaking. the red glitter also looks awesome over blue, like zoya jo for example.
    but since removal is a b*tch, I will not often wear manis with these glitters ;) for special occasion I will use them though.

  • August 2, 2011

    This is some serious glitter! I love the Inspire as well.

    I love these and picked up a few of them myself (Animate, Flamboyant, Purge, Aqueous, Nostalgic and Uninhibited) few weeks ago and they indeed look awesome layered :D + Uninhibited = Black glitter = me SQUEEING! The only drawback to these are, as you pointed out, the removal.

  • August 2, 2011

    I like the rose gold too. These are jammed with glittery goodness.

  • August 3, 2011

    Oh I love these! I picked a few up a couple weeks ago, and they did not disappoint. I’m actually wearing Uninhibited right now over CG Happy Go Lucky, and it’s gorgeous!

    The red looks amazing over blue. {Essie Mesmerized is my favorite.} It looks very Superman-esque.
    I definitely plan on picking up more of these soon especially Nostalgic after seeing it here!

    I wish someone would get all of these, and some empty bottles, and dump a tiny bit of each into the bottles and franken a Lippmann Happy Birthday ON STEROIDS and sell me a bottle of it…

      Buy them ALL (I’ve already bought five, and I’m going back to lagirlusa.com for more), then buy some empty bottles(nailsupplies.us has tons) and go to town. They do have a color called “Celebrate” which appears to be a mixture of most/all the glitter colors, but you might want to create your own to “edit” a bit.

      And yes, these are FANTASTIC for layering! Note that Kelly’s swatches are more accurate than what’s on the LA Girl site — Incognito is actually electric/peacock blue microglitter with *silver* big hex glitter, and Flash is true pure copper, not the bronze it appears in their pic.
