Above The Curve - Holo Happiness in a Bottle

Hello lovlies!

Today I have a review and nail art featuring the ever amazing polish of Above the Curve. These guys are probably some of my top favorite nail polish makers, hailing from my own beautiful Pacific Northwest backyard.
 I first came upon Above the Curve over a year ago and have previously reviewed Risen Angel polish which one of my first ATC polishes. I have many more I need to get posted!
But today, I have a couple from their lovely Ultra Holo selection.
This is Ultra Holo Blue, with Ultra Holo Purple on my ring finger. The color of these polishes is just amazing, so bright and "here I am!" without being obnoxious.

I applied two coats of each polish, both had excellent formulas. I didn't have any clumping or streaking. It does quickly, but for me, that doesn't interfere with application. My topcoat of choice for this mani is Simply Quick by Bliss Kiss which has done an excellent job of maintaining the holo effect.
Now you all know what a Bluey I am, and normally this right here would satisfy me, but I decided to mix it up a bit and do some art with these polishes. So I reached for my chevron nail vinyls from NailVinyls.com and, voila - I applied two coats of the Ultra Holo Purple over the Blue, and two coats of the Ultra Holo Blue over the Purple on my ringer finger, again with the Simply Quick top coat. 
I'm probably going to file my nails down within the next week, because they are getting a little long for my lifestyle, but I was excited to get a full three nail vinyls on my nails for this design.

 And, because they are holos, sunlight is really the main source that shows them off best - and I just couldn't quit looking at my nails!

Above the Curve has many more stunning polishes in their shop on Etsy, and $1 from each polish goes to the Shriner's Hospital for Children. International stockists are Overall Beauty and Pshiiit Boutique
You can also interact with Above The Curve on Facebook, they have fun giveaways and blog link ups!
