Yup, still catching up on older releases, but these were too pretty not to post here.
L.A. Girl is a brand that I typically only see at Rite Aid, and they normally are one of those inexpensive drugstore brands that are like half a season behind on trends. They don't have bad quality products or anything, but a lot of time they get passed up because they're not "innovative" or super famous. They're slowly getting there though and I give them an A for effort with their new line of polishes that came out.
While browsing at the beginning of April, I saw a little display tucked away in the back because my Rite Aid was in the middle of renovating and re-organizing the store. I totally walked passed it until I stopped and realized the words "HOLOGRAPHIC" was plastered across the front of it, and did an about-face and scurried over to the display.
L.A. Girl's 3D Effects Hologram line has 6 (or 5?) colors all with a holographic glitter dispersed throughout it. There was a red, teal and purple, as well as a silver and black and possibly one more. I did some Tweeting and was told that the purple was a dupe for one of the Zoya holiday colors so I didn't pick that one up, and Eshani told me she sent me the teal, so I picked up the silver and hurried on home to play.
- Holographic 3D Silver - clear base with a ton of silver holographic pieces of glitter. They're not uniform pieces of glitter, but more like flakey pieces of glitter. Without being a flakey. Make sense? It's got a slightly gel like texture so it's a little thick at 3 coats but you get good coverage of the silver glitter that has a pretty strong holo to it. I like it :)
- Holographic Teal Dimension - this is a teal gel like base with teal and holo pieces of glitter. Same sort of almost flake type glitter. This one is stunning and is opaque in 2 coats.
I quite like these two polishes. They're not linear holos, but I think that L.A. Girl did a great job releasing products that aren't really that popular, finish wise, into the drugstore market.
I think these were each like $5 so they're not expensive either!
If I can find the red, I think I'll purchase it, in hopes that it's somewhat similar to Picture Polish's Monroe (new version).
What do you guys think? Do you like them?
