Above the Curve : Doctor Who Collection, Part 1

*Press Sample*

Good evening everyone!  Tonight I have another Above the Curve post for you- and it’s an awesome one!

ATC Who Collage

Earlier tonight, the always amazing Above the Curve released Part 1 of their Doctor Who Inspired collection!  I am a HUGE Doctor Who fan, so I jumped at the chance to show these beauties off to you all 🙂  And they did not disappoint!  Each one applied wonderfully and are just so beautiful!  I used KBShimmer Clearly on Top topcoat for each photo (when I just say ‘topcoat’).

The first polish of the collection is Donna.

Donna Noble is one of my very favorite companions featured in the newer shows, and so I just love that she gets her own polish in this collection.  This polish definitely reminds me of her bright, red hair as well as her tough, stubborn attitude!

Donna the polish is a reddish orange polish filled with a faint scattered holo.  I used 2 coats and topcoat for these photos.

Next up is Slitheen!

The Slitheen are (or were?) a family of criminals from the planet Raxacoricofallapatorius that hide their true forms while on Earth by ‘wearing’ the skins of humans- and tend to be very gassy as a result of the compression!

This color is really special, and my photos aren’t really doing it justice.  It’s a pretty, evergreen polish with a bit of a gold/brown shift to it, and a green glow.  Like Donna, it has a scattered holographic finish.  I used 2 coats and topcoat for these pictures.

Next in the set is Relative Dimensions!

The Doctor’s TARDIS, the big blue police box most people see in Who related photos, stands for Time And Relative Dimension In Space.  He is able to travel to any place, and any time in the universe.

Relative Dimensions is really really beautiful out in the sunlight.   It appears a bit brighter out in the sun than it does indoors- inside it’s a bit more of a muted purple, but both inside and outside it’s just lovely.  It also really brings out the red and purple sparks that are in there!  It almost looked like micro-micro glitter 🙂  Like the others in the collection, this also sports a scattered holo effect.  Shown is 2 coats with topcoat.

And last but not least, we have my favorite of the collection- The Silence!

The Silence- honestly I can’t really talk much about that without revealing just about any major plot point of the Eleventh Doctor’s first 2 seasons.  But I will say- this seems like an incredibly fitting polish for the phrase ‘Silence Will Fall’ 🙂

This is a gorgeous dark polish- in some lights it appears black, but there’s a definite blue to purple shift in there that’s subtle but not hidden.   It’s also full of micro flakes and a scattered holo like the rest of the collection.  It feels like there’s a galaxy on your nails without doing anything but painting them!  That was my first thought when I got outside and stared at this color.   A definite must have!
