Above the Curve: The Doctor Who Collection Part 2

*These products are Cruelty Free 

So...I ripped a nail. You've been seeing shorties on here, but the rip went beyond shorties. However, with so many pretties to show you I decided to swatch them for you on my super nubs. I figured if I could handle it, so could you! I did have to let it grow out past the bloody stage for your sake and for mine (the acetone burned the heck out of it)! Soon, I'm hoping to be able to even them up as well, but right now, they're still too short to even up, given the natural unevenness of my nail beds. *sigh*

But the polishes make up for it!

Actually, once they grow just enough to even them up, I think I quite love this length!

Above the Curve
The Doctor Who Collection Part 2

There are six new pretties in part 2 of the Above the Curve's Doctor Who series (and yes, I do believe there will a part 3, maybe in the Fall!)

If you missed Part 1 of the Collection, click here.

And just for the record, here is the maker's disclaimer:

So, let's go alphabetically, shall we? First, the formula. The formula on all 6 of these was outstanding and I have absolutely no issues to report! Not even one. Wibbly Wobbly is a clear-based glitter, but the formula on that one was great too.

Banana to a Party is a bright banana yellow shimmery glass fleck crelly polish with a light dusting of holo that I couldn't get to show properly. And pink, gold and green micro-flakes! Two coats and no top coat for all photos.

Indirect natural lighting...


Don't Blink is a grey/silver tightly scattered holo with black micro-glitter and blue shimmer. I think I also see some blue, green and pink micro-flakes too - in the macros!

Pretend It's a Plan is a purple holo. The holo is a loose linear and it has a blue flash with a slight duo-chrome shift from purple to pink, which I couldn't quite get. This one also has blue and pink micro-flakes that show in the shade.

TARDIS is a turquoise blue shimmer holo - the holo is a loose linear and it has a great lighter turquoise blue flash.

Indirect natural lighting...


Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey is a clear-based glitter polish with what appear to be just purple micro-glitters but they color-shift like mad! I'm showing you this one over a neutral polish (Dior Incognito because my nails are stained) so you can see exactly what it is, but you can see swatches of it in all its glory over black over at Model City Polish.

One Coat

Three coats

Indirect natural lighting...


You Call Me...Sexy is a sexy berry red shimmer creme polish with a loose linear holo and blue shimmer. I think I see some violet micro-flakes in the shade too!

Love love love! My favorite, I think, is You Call Me...Sexy. Or Pretend It's A Plan. Or Don't Blink. It's hard to choose! What I love so much is that even when the light isn't accentuating the holo, the micro-flakes and shimmer still give it tons of depth in the shade. What are your favorites?
