Above The Curve

I was recently gifted a mini polish from Shawn at Above the Curve. The polish is called Risen Angel and is a holographic polish with a base color of smokey purple and it is absolutely gorgeous, take a look!

Risen Angel applied like silk. It went exactly where I wanted it to, no running or gooping, no drag or smearing on extra brush strokes.

Absolutely perfect in every way. Indoors in low lighting, its a shimmery gorgeous shade, but with camera flash and brighter lighting the holo comes out to play!

I would call this a loose linear holo, its very pretty and such an unusual base color for a holo. This is only two coats too. I'm pretty smitten with Risen Angel and cannot wait to try a few more from their line. :)

You can get yours at their BigCartel Shop here: http://abovethecurve.bigcartel.com
Or the Etsy shop here (out of stock currently): http://www.etsy.com/shop/AboveTheCurve

They have low stock of this polish, so if you want it get it now. :)

If the photos and my obvious lust for this polish aren't enough, you can feel good knowing that Above The Curve donates part of the money from the sale of each bottle of polish. :)

We are a husband and wife team who love to make polish together!

When I was 12 I was diagnosed with a severe case of Scoliosis. I had a 72 degree curve and my spine was making my ribs twist into my heart and lungs. I had to have a rushed surgery to fuse my spine.

We were sent to Shriner's Hospitals for Children and they did my surgery for free!! They saved my life!

Without them I wouldn't have met my wonderful husband and have my 3 beautiful children!

We have always wanted to repay them and help raise awareness and funds for Shriners Hospitals For Children as well as raise awareness for Scoliosis!

Hence the name Above The Curve

$1.00 of every bottle sold is donated to Shriner's Hospitals For Children.


  1. Thank you!! And I just got word it is sold out now. That was quick!
    I've asked when the next restock will be, but I have a feeling it may be a while.

  2. I just got a message from Shawn. He has 3 bottles on hand and will be adding those to stock sometime today. He has materials to make ten more so he will stock those over the next few days and then total restock by Saturday (his base is to arrive between now and then).

  3. This looks stunning on you! Gorgeous shade of holo-goodness.

  4. I think I need this in my life!

    And how have I not followed you yet?

  5. Ohh you have pretty nails... I really miss mine, now looking at your blog! Take a look http://neglelir.blogspot.dk/ and see what I just did to mine... :-/ You wont understand a word, just look at the pictures ;-)
    I have gel-nails, so I can build my square nails again easily. It was okay to try something new, I was wondering if that shape would look good on me. Now i know :-D
