SquareHue Decades Collection March - 1920s

Hey everyone! Hope you're having a good week so far. It's warming up here and that is making me feel oh so cheerful. Maybe I can finally get my car washed without worrying about the snow making it look disgusting.

The other day my SquareHue box for March arrived and I am super excited about it because the colors are based on the 1920s, my all time favorite era. I have to say that these colors were not exactly what I expected, but I certainly am not disappointed. On to the swatches!

I really love the packaging of SquareHue polishes. The bottle shape and labeling is extremely appealing to me. I had so much fun photographing these!

Coctails & Cigarettes 1920 - A sheer pearl with teal shimmer. This is so pretty in the bottle! The teal is a totally unexpected twist, which I love. This applies very sheer on the nail, so you really won't be able to build it up with multiple coats. I think this would look beautiful over other colors, but I could also see myself wearing it instead of a sheer pink when I want a "naked" nail day.

I took a photo with flash as well to try to show you the teal. Hard to see in photos but it's there!

Style & Speed 1921 - Silver micro glitter. This is a perfect color that fits the glitzy 1920s vibe. That micro glitter is super fine, which makes this an easy silver to wear. I didn't find it to be streaky at all and it applied nicely in two coats.

Art & Deco 1925 - Copper shimmer. This color is stunning and I can without a doubt say that I don't own anything like it. I also noticed a bit of duochrome going on. In some lights it comes off as more of a golden copper and in other lights it leans towards a rose gold. I used three coats, though even then it wasn't fully opaque. I still love how it looks!

SquareHue is a nail polish subscription box that costs $19.99 a month. You get three new shades in each box. You can pause your membership at any time, which I will probably be doing until the 1960s box (another favorite era of mine).
