Above the Curve Nail Polish Review

Hello Nail Surfers 

Welcome to My Beach

I have lots of pictures to share with you today.

Above the Curve Nail Polish is an Indie Polish Brand.
This Brand has a meaningful name and cause.

Angel has scoliosis and Shriner's disease.
When she was 12 Shriner's Hospital of Portland gave her a Life saving
surgery that corrected a 74 degree curve.
This is were the name comes in.
Above the Curve and spine logo is to live above the curve of scoliosis.

They donate a portion  of their  proceeds to Charities to help others.
They donate to many kinds of Charities and have donated over thousands
already and plan to keep donating for the cause.

Many Mani's and Swatches!


This is the Newest Collection out By Above the Curve 
Summer Destinations 2014

This Collection can be purchased here- AboveTheCurve Store Link

These 4 polishes dry with a Matte Finish.
You can always add a Glossy Top Coat to make them shiny.

This is an outdoor shot.
I used 3 thin coats of Myrtle Beach and Coney Island .
3? you ask.. Well I don't having VNL (Visible Nail Line)
and when I held the polish bottle in my hand  I saw a line. 
2 coats has great coverage. 

Did I mention how this polish dries in Record Time?
It really does. It dries faster than any polish I have,
including Seche Vite.

This is with a Top Coat and indoors.

I used 3 coats of Boardwalk (Blue)
and 4 coats of Venice Beach.
This Polish goes on Glossy but Dries Matte.
I used MJ XXIV  by MyOnline Shop for art.

I wanted to have fun and mix some colors up.
I use Venice Beach,Coney Island and Boardwalk.
I used Wet`N`Wild Matte Polish to Matte my Black Nails.
M42 is what I used for art.
I just love how these polishes compliment one another.

I wanted to try water marbling with these.
It wasn't a huge success at first. 
These polishes dry super fast already and when I tried to create a design in the water 
I was only making a mess. So I hurried up and dipped one finger and
and got as much as I could on it.
I used Pueen Encore Set SE O4 B

As a Stamper I just had to try.
They all do stamp, but I would recommend over light color bases only.

I wanted to show that even if your not a stamper these
polishes work great as Art of their own. I left the center blank so you can
visualize what you would for art. Would you add a straight Black line?
Or add some Rhinestones for some Bling-Bling action?
Dots would also look great going down the center of this nail as well.
The possibles are endless. Be creative and go wild.

Here I painted the nail  2 coats of White and add a Matte finish.
I then used a straw to make the splatter design.

I have had so much fun with this collection.

They apply so easily and dry in record time.
Removal was not bad either.

I would defiantly recommend this collection .
