Above The Curve - Fallen Angel

I've had this polish for a while and have been meaning to try it and I finally did last week.  I've previously used I Pink I Can, I Pink I Can, a limited edition pink holo polish that was absolutely gorgeous on me, so I was eager to try Fallen Angel as well.  I hope to get the entire Angel line at some point, but for now, this will have to do.

I love Above The Curve polishes.  They have gorgeous colors and they apply beautifully and they donate $1.00 of every bottle sold to Shriner's Hospitals for Children and help raise awareness for Scoliosis.  Lots of good about a little bottle of polish.

Fallen Angel is a holographic polish with pink/purple/blue color shifting shimmer.  As you can see, it is beautiful!

You can really see the blue shimmer here. I wish I had a better picture.  It really sparkles in the sunlight, but sunlight was scarce around here when I was wearing this polish.  The other colors of the shimmer are very noticeable in the sun and it sparkles like crazy.

I found this formula thicker than I Pink I Can and had to use three coats to get it even, but I think I little thinner will fix that right up.  Otherwise I was great.  It dried quickly and I just needed my normal one coat of top coat - the polish is extremely smooth when it dries. I did get tip wear fairly quickly and it shows in the picture so please forgive me.  The tip wear is no fault of the polish.  My nails are at that length where no matter what I am doing I am hitting the tips on something and I have the tip wear issue with every polish I use.  If I was a lady of leisure it wouldn't be a problem. :)

There are now many more colors in the Angel line and they are all gorgeous!  Stop over at their blog for info and you can purchase your very own bottle at their Etsy and Big Cartel shops.
