L.A. Girl 3D Effect Sparkle Ruby

Purchased Myself Button




Hi everyone! I’m still on holiday! Yay! Not for much longer I’m afraid, I’ll be heading back to work on the 12th of January. How about you? I have a stunning polish to show you today. I actually really love all the polishes I have from this collection. L.A. Girl has come out with so many cool “effect” polishes lately and I actually own quite a lot of them! I have quite a few from their texture collection as well as a couple of glitter polishes from their Splatter collection and a few of the 3D effect holographic polishes. The one I am showing you today is one of the scattered holos. Let’s get to it!

I started off with a base coat of OPI Nail Envy. I painted 2 coats of L.A. Girl Sparkle Ruby on all of my nails except my ring nail. Sparkle Ruby is a gorgeous deep red or maroon jelly polish with scattered holo particles throughout. This polish was quite opaque and I was able to get it opaque in two coats. It was also not a pain to clean up as some reds can be. On my ring nail I painted 2 coats of Sinful Colors Black on Black and placed 3 gold studs purchased from Born Pretty Store (purchase here*) from biggest (3 mm) to smallest (1 mm) from the cuticle upwards and sealed everything in with a coat of Seche Vite. Well that was easy, wasn’t it? The result:

L.A. Girl 3D Effects Sparkle Ruby

I loved wearing this mani. When I thought of how to describe it, the word ‘elegant’ seemed fitting. I literally felt so polished with this on my nails, like a real lady 😉 The holographic effect is also truly beautiful and has a lot of purple shimmers in it. I tried very hard to get a shot of the holo, but failed miserably. Pretty Girl Science has a couple of great swatches of Sparkle Ruby, Brilliant Blue and Teal Dimension from the collection in this post, head on over and have a look if you want to see the glorious scattered holos these polishes have to offer!

What do you think of this mani? It was simple to do, would you give it a try? Let me know in the comments below!
