NOTD: Above the Curve Hyacinth

The weather here was hot and sunny today, which was a nice surprise since I thought it was supposed to rain.   It was nice to be unexpectedly greeted by a beautiful day!  I decided to use one of my ‘untried’ holographic polishes to take advantage of the sunlight.  Hyacinth from Above the Curve Nail Lacquer is a light but buildable lavender polish with a subtle, scattered holographic shimmer.  I used three coats for the picture, with base coat but no top coat.  This applied like a dream, with no streaking or balding, and dried in a flash!  In terms of application, it was everything I dream of in a polish.

Above the Curve Hyacinth

This is a nice, light, and pretty color for a a beautiful day.  This is one of those shades that seems workplace appropriate to me; it’s understated enough indoors, but will give you a flash of rainbow shimmer in the sunlight.

I purchased this mini bottle of Hyacinth from the Above the Curve web shop as part of their spring collection (which consisted of four mini polishes in total) for $15.  This color is no longer available for purchase, but they have a bunch of other great colors available now!  There’s a few I definitely have my eye on.  😉

    • Thanks so much, Ginger! I tend to focus on my flaws in these pictures (like my #nubforlife index finger nail), so it’s so nice to hear some positive feedback! 🙂 I love getting to see your great manis and photos on your blog, too! Can’t wait to see what’s next!

      • Thank you! I guess we all focus on the mistakes we make with our manis but in real life 99.9% of people wouldn’t even notice any imperfection unless you’d point it out to them AND they’d look really closely. I think it is just different when you stare at a picture for longer than a moment. Anyway, I meant what I said. Have a good weekend. 🙂
