Above The Curve: Power to the Polish Peeps!

✯ PR Sample ✯ 

Today I'm excited to share four new colors from Above The Curve's Spring 2014 collection: Power to the Polish Peeps! There are 7 colors total in the new spring collection.


Twin Peeps: is a pale pink crelly full of different glitters. I spotted stars, moons, butterflies. I used 3 coats for the photos below, and a topcoat is a must to smooth out the glitters nicely. I used Seche Vite. The glitters came out nicely, though I did place a few on the last coat.



Peeps, Love, & Happiness: One of my favorites! Pretty sky blue crelly, with a mix of different glitters. I spotted butterflies and flowers in this one. It applied the same as Twin Peeps. 3 coats, plus 1 coat of Seche Vite.



Have Your Peeps Call My Peeps: gorgeous pink coral cream with holographic shimmer. It's such a pretty color and the formula goes on perfectly. But, while it's a stunner... it's also a stainer. :-( (Please note: this is mentioned in the store!)




I did a test on my non swatching hand. On my pinky I only used HYPCMP. On my ring finger I used two coats of Orly base coat + polish. I left them on overnight. In the morning when I removed the polish- both nails were stained. :-( What's funny is, I think the nail that had the base coat looks more stained, than the nail without anything.


So... when swatching this color, I took extra precaution. I did 1 coat of OPI Nail Envy, 1 coat of L.A. Girl Marine Base Coat, 1 coat of Out The Door Topcoat- BEFORE I applied 2 coats of the polish. This triple threat combo DID protect me from staining, while I swatched the polish. If staining isn't a huge deal for you, then you'll be fine. But for a nail blogger staining is something we dread. :-\


Edited to add: Shelby from Shelbylou Nails says that if you have staining, a cuticle remover like Blue Cross Cuticle remover will help remove staining. Thanks for the tip!

Peepers Creepers: is a lovely spring green color with scattered holographic shimmer. Formula went on nicely, I used 3 coats, plus Seche Vite topcoat.
