Boogie Down With SquareHue's 1970s Decades Collection!

Press Sample

I know, I haven't done a SquareHue post in a while. I have posted pictures on Instagram. I also tend to post them on snapchat as well, so if you want to add me there it's auttyw. #shamelessplug

For the month of August we have the ever fun Decade of the 1970s. Throw on your bell bottoms and strap on your platform shoes and lets see what we have!

First up we have a polish that everyone should have learned about in their history class. Watergate 1972.
This polish is a shimmery blue "microglitter" polish. This is a very sheer polish. It took at least 4-6 coats to achieve some type of opacity. You however will be surprised when the light hits this polish the right way, it becomes purple! Really, this is like a shimmery duochrome. Two polishes in one! This was actually the hardest for me to capture, I couldn't capture the purple shift AT ALL. 

This polish you should all recognize simply because it's name! iPolish 1976.
This polish is named after the year that Apple was founded! Apple is such an iconic brand and this White Creme polish is completely opaque in TWO coats. Really though, depending on how you apply it you could probably get away with one coat. I've been so mesmerized by this polish, in it's simplicity and blank nature. I'm loving that this was included in the box!

Let's head right into Night Fever 1977, throw some Bee Gees on and dance like you're at the Disco!

This polish just screams 1970's Disco Balls. This is a holographic glitter. It can be used ontop of polishes, one coat by itself of you can build it up (about 4 coats) to achieve a covered nail. This is a polish I would definitely suggest putting a topcoat over. The holographic-ness of it really came out when it had a shiny top coat applied!

I seriously am in love with this collection, I think this one has to be my favorite out of the past boxes. It's just so fun! The Duochrome of the blue, the cleanness of the white and the glitz of the glitter!

I know you're probably all "Autumn, what the heck is up with the single finger swatch?!" Well, I wanted to try and get this post up and all of my previous 4 finger swatches...turned out 100% blurry and complete crap and I thought this might be a bit easier for myself given my time frame of cranking this out. I promise the 1980's will be back to regular swatches! <3
