(L->R) Dusty Huntin, What No Buy?!,
Husbands Just Don't Understand and Lemming Have It!

A SATURDAY POST?! OH MY! Haha today I have some polishes by Above the Curve to share with you. WHICH I'M SUPER STOKED ABOUT because 1) I know a lot of people love this brand, I've never had the chance to try it and 2) LOOK at those names hahahaha. I have swatch and review after the jump :]


These are 4 super shiny, holographic polishes I am stoked to show you!

Haha this was the FIRST name I saw and I busted out laughing so hard! For those who don't know, dusty hunting is when you go to salons to find HTF polishes in their stock and buy them off of them. I've never personally done it, mostly because the salons around here suck lmao. BUT ONE DAY! Anyways, Dusty Huntin' is a pinkish-red holographic polish, scattered holo but still a pretty color.

I did ONE FREAKIN COAT of Dusty Huntin', no undies or top coat. The application was smooth and dried fast. No issues with this one :]

Haha if you're on a no buy and I'm showing these to you, I'm sorry. But I feel your pain since I've been on one since June 1st D: What No Buy?!?! is a super duper shimmery gold scattered holographic polish with tiny gold hexes. You can see the hexes best in my macro shot above, I forgot to take a nail macro since this was all done in the 20 minutes of sun Charleston allowed me for the week haha. I really like the tiny gold hexes though, gives it a little something different. I'm still not convinced goldish polishes look good on me :-\

I did 3 coats of What No Buy?!?! with no undies or top coat. This was the most sheer of the 4 I was sent. Application was nice and smooth and I do recommend waiting in between coats, or else if you're impatient like me you'll end up with bald spots and have to start over haha.

AIN'T THAT THE TRUTH! Husbands, PFTTTTT. This is a brilliant color, I don't even know what else to say. I don't think I have any holos like this one! Husbands Just Don't Understand is a dark teal scattered holographic polish. It's truly a stunning color.

I did 2 coats of Husbands Just Don't Understand. I didn't have any issues with it, the application was smooth and the dry time was good as well.

This one was my favorite out of the 4. If you follow me on Instagram, you saw I actually made a pair of nail polish bottle earrings with this color! Lemming Have It! is a rich, dark blurple scattered holographic polish with flecks of bright blue. The flecks are more apparent in real life, it was hard to catch on camera but you can see them in my bottle macros. When light hits this polish, it is truly amazing.

I did 2 coats of Lemming Have It! without top coat or undies. I didn't have any issues with this one. The application was nice and smooth and it dried in good time.

I hope you enjoyed these polishes. I would also like to add that Above the Curve donates "$1.00 from each bottle sold will be donated to Shriners Hospitals for Children." :] <3

  1. I never knew of a brand that donates part of their income (maybe I live in a bubble), it's so nice of them!!!

    I think "Husbands" is my fav one, maybe because I don'r have any holographic dark teal like that :P

    Thanks for showing them!
