New-To-Me Indie : Above The Curve - Guardian Angel

Hey  Peeps! I'm excited to show you Guardian Angel from the beloved Above The Curve Nail Polish. I won it from one of their Flash Friday giveaways =D It's my first time trying their stuff so I'm pretty stoked about it, I love trying new pretties! Speaking of pretties- ATC is pretty dang popular in the polish world, they were just recently selected as one of the 'Best Indie Nail Polish Brands' by Paint Crush Magazine. I've never read a bad review about their creations either, raves all the way. For those, if any, are unfamiliar- Above The Curve is an indie that cares. $1 from each bottle of their polish sold is donated to Shriner's Hospitals For Children, they raise awareness for Scoliosis too! They've also been doing a wonderful job raising funds for Autism Awareness lately. The weekly giveaways on Facebook help raise money for Shriner's and other charities, and they're becoming more popular by the week. I encourage you to like them on Facebook, and remember to stop in on Friday evenings for some flash giveaways. Besides the charity work, all their polish is 3-free and cruelty free. Flippin' awesome stuff yo! Check it out...
I love linear holos. I don't own many, and this is my first ATC ever. So glad I got to give 'em a try! Their formula is so awesome. That's just 2 coats of Guardian Angel, no top coat. I'm in love! The color is so intriguing, they shift from pink to gold to purple, and the linear holo totally puts it over the top..How's about a shot under artificial light?
 Stunning, isn't it?! I can't resist the urge to flash you a closeup, I love this stuff!
 I'm not sure what I love the most about it - the awesome formula or the gorgeous color loaded with holo. It's hard not to keep staring at it. I'm almost hypnotized. I'm all "Ooooh shiny!" I got adventurous and decided to try Revlon's Hearts of Gold over Guardian Angel. Here's a shot in natural light, indoors...
 Please excuse the photo quality- I took this with my phone. It caught the purple shimmer though. This duo looked awesome together regardless of the crappy photo. The gold glitters go perfect with the gold shift in Guardian Angel and the holographic hearts are adorable.

 So, my thoughts on Above The Curve...I'm in love with Guardian Angel, and I can't wait for this awful no-buy to be over so I can purchase some of their pretties. Their new Jolly Rancher inspired collection is to die for from the photos I've seen. You can check out their shop on Big Cartel here. Also find Above The Curve on Etsy here. Don't forget to like them on Facebook for shop news and updates, check in on Fridays for chances at winning some mini pretties too! Click here to go to their page.

 Now comes the interrogation part...What are your thoughts on ATC? Own any of their pretties, and if so how many? Which ones are they? I'd love to hear what your ATC lemmings are too, lemme know in the comments! Oh, and speaking (or typing) of comments I noticed some jackass had spammed me with links to their blog that's totally unrelated to anything I'm interested in. I think that's rude, so I've changed settings. Unfortunately you'll have to enter a captcha, but that's no biggy. I don't mind doing it when I comment on other blogs. Advice on anything else I can do to ensure my blog isn't raped again would be greatly appreciated! Remember, I'm kind of a dumbass when it comes to blogging. I just started in December and I feel like Joe Dirt working at the oil rig...I'm new, I'm new, I don't know what to do! So, I think that about wraps it up for this blogging session peeps. Thanks for reading, y'all come back now, ya hear?
