Above the Curve Review Part 2: Polish Addiction Set!
Time for the second half of my Above the Curve review! This time I have the Polish Addiction set. These are some BEAUTIFUL polishes! If you follow my Facebook page, you may have already seen my pictures there 😉
As I said last time- ATC is an amazing indie company run by the super sweet Angel and Shawn. $1 from every single bottle is donated to Shriner’s Hospitals for Children! Their mission with Above the Curve is to raise awareness for Shriner’s Hospitals, and for scoliosis. See, more reason to buy polish (and be polish addicted)- you’re donating to a good cause!
This collection is made up of Husbands Just Don’t Understand, Dusty Huntin’, What No Buy?!?!, and Lemming Have It!
All 4 polishes are incredibly stunning holographic polishes. What No Buy?!?! has gold holographic glitter, while the other 3 all have a subtle bit of color shifting sparkle to them. All 4 apply absolutely beautifully- smooth, no cleanup needed.
First up is Husbands Just Don’t Understand- which is true, they don’t! Mine tends to just smile and nod 😉 This is a beautiful dark teal holographic polish with a bit of a green flash to it.
I used 2 coats with no topcoat. Like I said before- applied beautifully! This polish is really stunning, especially outside in the sunlight where all 4 really shine.
The second polish in this collection is Dusty Huntin’! If you’re unfamiliar with what Dusty Huntin’ is, it’s when you visit older salons to try and find valuable older polishes sitting ‘gathering dust’ on the shelves and buy them from the salon. Often they’ll sell them to you (used) for relatively cheap- they think they’re getting a great deal, while you, the polish addict, are overjoyed at snagging a hard to find beauty.
This is a beautiful pink leaning red holographic polish with a beautiful purple flash. The holographic effect is a bit more faint on this one than the others, but it ‘s still a shining stunner! I used 2 coats with no topcoat.
Next is What No Buy?!?!- a beautiful golden holographic polish with scattered gold holographic glitter. I tried to go on a no-buy one time- I’m not sure I even made it through the week. Instead I (attempt) to go on low-buys- but even then I usually fail 😉
I don’t normally care for gold polish, but this one is super pretty, and worked well with my skin tone. And even though it’s filled with holographic glitter, it came off just as easily as the other holo polishes- no need for the foil method or excessive scrubbing! This is 3 coats with no topcoat.
And last but certainly not least, is Lemming Have It!- my personal favorite, and seems to be a lot of people’s favorite. Lemming Have It is a drop dead gorgeous blurple holographic with a blue shimmering shift to it. The blue shimmer really comes out to play in sunlight- I couldn’t stop staring at my nails!
The pigmentation is great across the board with this collection, but is especially great in Lemming Have It!. I could almost get away with 1 coat, but for pictures I was sure to use 2 coats (no topcoat). Applied like a dream. I think I gushed enough in my last post about how well ATC polishes apply, so I’ll spare you this time 😉 (they apply wonderfully!)
This polish is easily tied for my very favorite ATC polish with Fallen Angel- both are must have polishes (unless you don’t like holographic polishes of course- but not many people dislike holos!). The extra shimmer flash in these is what really sets them apart and makes them shine.
Interested in grabbing any Above the Curve beauties? You can find them in their Big Cartel store, their Etsy store, and also at Overall Beauty. You can also follow the ATC Facebook page for news and updates. Polishes range from $7 to $9 (for holos)- and don’t forget, $1 from every bottle is donated to Shriner’s Hospitals for Children!
