Above The Curve Polish Addiction Collection Reviews & Swatches

Hi there! I have a new brand on the blog today; Above The Curve! Before I jump into these beautiful and perfectly named polishes, I wanted to tell you a little more about this brand. Angel and Shawn, the forces behind Above The Curve, donate $1 of every bottle sold to the Shriner's Hospital for Children. They do this not only because they are awesome, but also to help raise awareness for scoliosis.; as Angel was diagnosed with it as a child. As of June 16th they have raised $1,287 for Shriner's Hospital!
P.S. My camera was a jerk with these polishes and didn't want to capture any of the holo these polishes brought to the table. :( There is holo in all of them, but yeah my camera is a pain in the butt.

Dusty Huntin' is described as a red holo that leans orange and pink with pink, purple, red and orange shimmer. I used 2 coats and no top coat.
This was almost a 1 one coater for me and the overall formula was perfect; it dried quickly and was a great consistency. Even though my camera didn't capture the holo (it is there I swear!) the color is awesome and the added shimmers add even more to it's beauty! :) All the names in this collection put a smile on my face and while I have tried dusty hunting a few times, I have never had any luck finding anything good. >_<
Husbands Just Don't Understand is a teal-ish/forest green with flecks of green and blue shimmer and scattered holo. All nails are 2 coats and no top coat.
 Husband don't understand! Haha Mine does to an extent, he just doesn't know why I need every color even when some are close to each other. I just do ok! :P He likes to see when I get new polishes in and tell me his favorites, this color just happened to be his favorite out of this collection. I assume that's because it's the "manliest" one. :P Formula was again perfect and I love the combination of the blue and green shimmer added to the mix! It helps just give it that extra kick! ;) Also, this one again was almost a one coater for me!
Lemming Have It! has a jelly-like purple/blue base with holo and blue flecks. For my photos I used 2 coats and no top coat.
 Oh my gosh you guys, you need this polish! Seriously it's no surprise they put "lemming" in the name because it is a must have! The blue flakes stand out very well against the holo and, well, it's purple so it's of course a "need" in my book. ;) Formula again was problem free and almost a one coater!
What No Buy?!?! is a sparkly gold with fine gold holo hexes and scattered holo. Here I used 4 coats with no top coat. 
 Do people do "no buys" and live to tell the tale? I usually go on "low buys" because I don't have any will power when it comes to pretty things. :X This polish was the sheerest in the collection, but still easy to work with and dried quickly. You will have really bling-tastic nails when you wear this because the combination of holo pigment and holo glitter! ;)
