SquareHue April 2015 - 1930's

Press Sample

I'm just gonna squeeze a small update in here. I know I'm late getting this up and getting May's trio up. Cloe has been extremely sick and I've not been able to get on my computer or really even check my email. I logged in to find 81 emails, just on my blog email. I'm going to try and work quickly to get fresh and new content with you all, as well as I'm going to try and catch up on all of the press sample reviews that I need to get up. Honestly, I'm so behind right now that it's ridiculously disgusting and it's extremely stressful to be so behind. I just beg you to understand and bear with me while I try and catch up! Thank you! <3 Autumn

Hello Lovelies! I hope you all are doing swell! Today we have the SquareHue 1930's Decades Collection. I personally am super excited about the polishes that are in this months box! I ended up taking these to Busch Gardens with me to get some interesting and well, different shots of the polishes. I think I kind of succeeded with it! You tell me. 

First up we have Boardgame 1935 - Orange High Gloss Creme - 2 coats
Board games were introduced in 1935, so I think that this is a very fitting color as well as a very fitting representation of the year. Monopoly was pretty much the first board game that was marketed in the year. 

In the swatch, I used two coats of the polish. The polish applied easily, went on smoothly and didn't flood the cuticles. 

Tomorrowland 1939 - Purple High Gloss Creme - 2 coats

Tomorrowland was basically the technology or the "way of the future." It was based around the Worlds Fair of the 1939.
The polish was two coats and It was pretty easy to work with. I used the same amount of coats on each nail and you can see that they all look slightly different. I think that is so neat about this polish. I actually called it Barney Purple when looking it after top coating it. 

WPA 1933 - Turquoise/Teal High Gloss Cream - 2 Coats

On May 6, 1944 President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Executive order creating the Work Progress Administration (WPA).The WPA put unemployed Americans to work in return for temporary financial assistance.
This is one of those colors that is such a huge biatch to photograph correctly. This definitely in my opinion is a blue based teal, but it could definitely be a turquoise at the same time. I think that it is the beauty of this particular color because it could potentially be two colors in one polish, depending on the lighting of course. 

I really enjoyed April's polishes. I actually loved all three polishes and I'm so obsessed with the names. Call me a sucker for History but I love looking into each of the names that each polish is based on. It's such a fun thing in my opinion. Plus, it shares History with everyone, which definitely doesn't hurt.

I didn't describe the formulas individually because they were all the same. All three polishes were easy to apply, they applied smoothly and didn't flood the cuticle of surrounding nail edges at all.

  3. Those colors are so nice! I quite like them.

  4. Teals are always so hard to photograph! I hope Cloe feels better soon, I know what you mean about the stress of being behind. I hope life smooths out for you soon :)
