You’re probably wondering what in the world is Square Hue?! Well, I’d be happy to answer that question Square Hue is my NEW go-to monthly subscription for nail polish. Square Hue isn’t my first nail polish subscription, in fact, I’ve tried three others with mixed reviews. I’ve been disappointed in the past by small bottles, poor quality polish, overpriced “add-ons” and even at times receiving things unrelated to nail polish. Is it just me or do you find it WEIRD when a polish company sends you mascara? Well, these disappointments had me looking for a new box to invest around $20 into. I soon found SquareHue.com where for $21 a month, they would send you 3 full size bottles of nail polish. Each month, every subscriber is sent the same trio of on trend, coordinated colors. This months collection was named “Madonna” and I was really excited to see what Square Hue had in store for my first month!
As you can see, this collection features three stunning pinks. I can’t think of a better month to bust out different shades of the girliest color around. Most months, subscribers DO receive three separate colors. As someone who has a full range of colors, three great pinks are a welcome addition! Well, ANY polish is a welcome addition Each bottle is full size .5oz or 15ml and in a cute square bottle.
Each of these colors is unique and has a different finish. Happy Creme is a pastel with loads of pigments. I found this one to be surprising in that I had full coverage and color in just two coats. Most of my pale colors need at least 3. Mother’s Pearl is a shimmer on the edge of being a holographic polish. I don’t own anything like this in my collection. The short brush inside each bottle makes application super smooth which is especially important with something so shimmery. Day Glow is probably my favorite. I’m a sucker for a good berry pink and this one packs a lot of punch into just one coat.
Overall, these colors were fabulous. I really loved the formulas, the bottles were easy to grip and the shorter than average brush gave me greater control when applying these polishes. After a few weeks of testing, I can say the wear time is about 5 days before I saw my first chips (not counting light tip wear). I wasn’t sure what to expect as far as wear, but again, these polishes pasts with flying colors! I’ll be continuing a subscription with SquareHue.com for now on and saying Good-bye to some of the other boxes I’ve tried in the past!
