Honestly, I cannot remember what year I bought this from PHAMExpo. It was either 2015 or 2014. I would like to think it's 2014, but I could be wrong. I bought two 3D Effects from L.A. Girl. I will review one of the two I bought.
This is Sparkle Ruby. Since I did a thorough review of L.A. Girl ColorPop in Lovely, I will base this on that.
OPI Nail Envy in Original, Seche Clear Crystal Clear Base Coat, 2 coats of L.A. Girl in Sparkle Ruby, and then topped it off with CND Vinylux Weekly Top Coat.
Now for my overall opinion... First of all, I did find the brush hard to paint around the cuticles. If you're experienced, this will be easy. Not matter how many years I have been polishing my nails, I just don't get better. Secondly, the consistency is medium. It's not too thick and not too thin, I find it a great consistency where I can take my time painting each nails. It went on smoothly, and there was no streaking and bubbles. Third, the sparkles are all over the bottle. It doesn't fall to the bottom and you don't have to search for them. You get a perfect amount of sparkles each application. Fourth, the color is gorgeous. It's a great winter color and I love the holographic! Lastly, it lasted four days before I noticed chipping at the tips. At this time it was slight chipping but it was noticeable. Around the fifth day, the chip became bigger and grew until I removed it.
Would repurchase: Yes.
