Above the Curve You're A Peepstar!, This One's For My Peeps! & Playing for Peeps

It's already April!! Oh how time flies! I've got another new (to me) indie to showcase on the blog today. Above the Curve sent me a few polishes, from their Power to the Polish Peeps collection, to swatch and review. They also sent a fourth polish, but that will be on the blog tomorrow. 


You're A Peepstar! is described as "a gorgeous mix of different colors, shapes, and sizes of glitter in a shimmery pastel yellow crelly base". This is three coats of You're A Peepstar! for full opacity. Formula was great and glitter stayed suspended pretty well, but the brush made application difficult. It is a mini bottle though, so I'm sure the normal sized bottles have better brushes. The color is a fun shade of yellow. Yellow is a color that not many people enjoy. This is a shade of yellow that is perfect for any skin tone! $8.50






This One's For My Peeps! is described as "a pretty pastel purple/lilac cream with lots of shimmer and a light dusting of holo". This is three coats of This One's For My Peeps!. Not necessarily for opacity, but more for the layers. My favorite of the three, the beautiful specks of blue and holo lift this lovely lilac to a whole other level. With a beautiful application, what more could you ask for from a polish? $8.50






Playing for Peeps is described as "full of neon green, pink, blue and yellow hexes, a mix of fine matte and holo hexes in a mint crelly base". This is three coats of Playing for Peeps. Not due to opacity, it was pretty opaque at two coats. Nor was it for leveling out the formula, it was actually pretty good. I had issues getting the larger glitters out. I'm pretty sure this was due to it being a mini bottle. I often have issues getting certain glitters out of mini bottles for some reason. What I did get out, I enjoyed. I'm glad it wasn't overwhelming in the glitter department. I was beyond happy with how my nails turned out. $8.50






What do you all think of these few colors from the Power To The Polish Peeps collection? Other than mini bottles being a little difficult to work with, I was pleased! You can these for yourself for $8.50 a bottle. If you'd like to take a look at the other polishes in this collection, links are included to those below. Take a peek at them and flip through the rest of the Above the Curve shop while you're at it. All their social media information is below as well. 

Twin Peeps $8.50
Peeps, Love, & Happiness $8.50
Have Your Peeps Call My Peeps (stains) $8.50
Peepers Creepers $8.50

Above the Curve is a three free indie brand. They take pride in what they do. All ingredients are listed at the bottom of each listing. They also donate $1 from every bottle sold to Shriners Hospitals for Children. The people behind Above the Curve really are good peeps. (see what I did there? *giggle-snort*)

These swatches were topped with Magpie Shine top coat ($7) and I used Sweet Nectar cuticle oil ($6) to hydrate my cuticles. Both from A Girl Obsessed.

My first comment disappeared so let's do this again!! I love all four of these. I don't know what it is about this time of year but I get so excited for all of the new pastel glittery crellies to come out so I can buy them all!! I love Above the Curve! They were one of the first indie brands I owned! I can't pick a favorite of these so you know what that means? o_O This One's For My Peeps is such a nice palette cleanser for the group!
