Above the Curve Falling for Autumn Collection + Diva P. Reviews & Swatches

Hey there everyone! I know I've been slacking lately >_< My immune system has decided it's ok for me to get sick. Not ok! And on top of that, we have *hopefully* found a place to move. Not sure if I have mentioned it or not since it's "been in the works" for what feels like forever now, but I am moving from AR to OK and it's been one heck of a time trying to find a place. I'm trying to stay hopeful this place will work out and we can finally get moving...again. :P
Today tonight, rather, I have some gorgeous new colors from Above the Curve. If you don't remember, Above the Curve donates $1 from each full size bottle to Shriner's Hospitals For Children. You can have pretty polish and help out others at the same time. :)

 Akiko is a rusty, pumpkin orange holographic. All nails are 3 coats with top coat.
Akiko is Japanese for bright, autumn child and I think the name is very fitting for this polish! :) It's a perfect autumn shade, as are all of these polishes, and had a great formula!
Anona has deep olive green base with gold shimmer and micro-flakes. Shown is 2 coats with top coat.
On the bottle it says Anona was Roman goddess for the harvest. Google says the spelling should be Annona, but I found a few sites that list is Anona; I can't say which is correct. :P Nevertheless, Anona is a lovely "harvest" green and again had a problem free formula. :)
Aphaea contains a pink flash and very faint scattered holographic in a dusty grey lilac base. These photos show 2 coats with top coat.
 My camera didn't want to pick up the pink flash or the scattered holographic finish. :/ It is there, but the holo is very light compared to the flash. I like this color even if it had neither, though. :) I thought I would need 3 coats because it is a lighter color, but had great coverage with just 2 coats! 
 Scarlet is a rich cranberry red with scattered holographic. All nails are 2 coats with top coat. 
Reminds you of cranberry relish, doesn't it?! Except for no cranberry relish I've ever eaten has sparkles! :P Another perfect autumn shade with a great formula to boot! :)
Diva P. is described as a strong holographic with blue-green fleck simmer in a clear base. For these photos I layered it over the above colors with top coat.
I couldn't make up my mind which polish I wanted to layer this I went with all of them! ;) I also can't say which is my favorite because I liked them all! :P I haven't seen anything like Diva P. on the market, but it's definitely something I like! As always formula was perfection and you get out plenty of holo and flecks with just 1 coat! :)
The Falling for Autumn collection will be available soon through Above the Curve's BigCartel store. Diva P. is available now in a set with 2 other "flecked" holo toppers! Make sure to follow Above The Curve on FacebookInstagram and Twitter.
