L.A. Girl Purple Effect

I recently ordered this purple scattered holo… and now my L.A. Girl collection is complete! Buauuuahahahaaa!

la girl purple 3d effects I know I’ve posted about these L.A. Girl holos a gazillion times (well maybe not a whole gazillion)… but this 3D Effects collection is great!  I had every color except this one.  It’s called Purple Effect but I recently picked it up from Cherry Culture.  🙂 Isn’t it beautiful??

Nail polish like this makes me forget about nail art.  Who needs it?  I got purple magic on my nails!

L.A. Girl Brilliant Blue Swatch

Today is day 5 of the 30 Day Nail Challenge and the theme is BLUE.  I’m wearing L.A. Girl Brilliant Blue and it’s about as blue as you can get!  This polish amazes me.  I want it in every color!  The scattered holo effect is very intense and my boyfriend said it’s like ‘looking at the cosmos’.  I dunno, maybe he said it just to humor me.  Hahaha.   Shown in the pics is two coats without a topcoat.  One thing I love about this polish is that it looks like a glitter, but it’s oh so smooth upon application.  It’s easy to remove too.  la_girl_holographic_blue

I love this blue and there’s nothing more to say about it.  The pictures speak for themselves!   I’m thinking of ordering some more online since my local Rite Aid hasn’t restocked their L.A. Girl 3D Effects display.  Their website has free shipping in the US if your order is over $25 and most of their polishes are $5 right now.  (I can’t find any international shipping info on their site though :(.)  They carry metallics, textured, neons, glitters, scented polish and a whole line of french manicure colors too.  Check ’em out here: L.A. Girl/Nails.

Orange Holo Tiger Tips

Today is day 2 of Short And Sweet in Texas’ April Nail Challenge and the theme is ORANGE.  It was perfect timing for orange since I just picked up this awesome L.A. Girl 3D Effects Holographic Nail Polish at Rite Aid over the weekend!  This holographic shade is called Electric Coral and I’m crazy about it!  In fact, I went back today during my lunch break to grab another bottle!  The display was completely ransacked so I ended up with the last solitary bottle they had- an awesome royal blue called Brilliant Blue.  Mine!

If you prefer linear holographics that burn rainbows into your cornia- then this polish may be a disappointment for you.  Instead, these ‘3D Effects’ polishes would be considered scattered holos.  I’m still in love with them!  Electric Coral is super glittery and eye-catching, almost like a glitter polish but without all the fuss of the nightmarish removal!  The formula was thick and jelly-like and went on smooth.  It was surprisingly opaque- one coat was a teeny bit thin, but two was perfect.  I love this stuff!  This polish is so glitzy and glam-not bad for $4.80!

To finish off my look I hand-painted some wild tiger stripes on my tips.  I used my new Angled Eyeliner Brush by e.l.f. studio (which I found at Target)… and my NYC Nail Enamel in Black Lace.  Then I topped it with some seche.

The tiger stripes were a little difficult for me so I’m on a quest to find a good brush for detailing.  Please let me know if you have a favorite!
