Above the Curve Polish Addiction Collection

Disclosure

This is the newest collection from Above the Curve.  Remember when I posted Guardian Angel last week? well this is from the same creators.  The couple behind the brand has a purpose, and each nail polish they sell will benefit a cause.  Their Mission is to raise awareness for Shriner's Hospital's for Children and Scoliosis.  Plus they have $9 dollar holos, how cool is that.  The names of these lacquers really made me smile.  I felt identified, with the nail polish obsessed lingo.  Husbands Don't Understand! is a super saturated teal holo (almost a 1-coater), very subtle effect, but can be worn over bare nails, no special aqua basecoat required.  Dusty Huntin' is an orange toned red, that had a very good formula.  I had a couple of irregular surface on my nails (peelies) and this completely covered them.  I like that, because some holographics can show imperfections even more, and these didn't.  The gold one, What No Buy?!?! was a perfectly balanced yellow not-too-flashy-or-too-pale gold.  This one had micro glitter in it, very subtle as well.   My favorite was Lemming Have It! the purple, of course.  This one reminded me of Enchanted Polish April 2013, since it had some blue iridescent microglitter thrown in there.  The pictures show it a bit more blue than it is in reality, although it is a blue-toned purple holo.  The color is nice, somewhat glowy, and bright, but still dark, very well executed.  Overall this collection is ok, but I feel it would have been better with more holographic substance, although for the price I can't really complain.  I know those rainbow materials can be expensive.  Like their Facebook Page for updates.
