Square Hue October 2015, 90's Decades Collection

Press Sample.  Square Hue is a nail polish monthly subscription box that is available in two options, a box of two or a box of three polishes per month. This is my first time trying their product.  First the swatches and then more information about this subscription box.

The formula and application were good on these, especially Desert Storm.  They dry very glossy.  Overall, I thought these were great shades for fall.

I never talk about names of polishes.  But, come on, Desert Storm and Y2K?  Why name these pretty polishes after negative events that bring back not so good memories for those of us that grew up in the 90s?  What about cool things we experienced in the 90s?  Grunge, Clueless, Channel 1 news (ha), Game Boys, the best SNL cast ever, I could go on and on.  

You can subscribe to the Square Hue subscription box at their website SquareHue.com.  You have the option of a two polish box for $10.99 or a three polish box for $14.99.  Those are some good prices for these.  I'm impressed.  The formula is "7-Free."  They do not contain Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resins, Toluene, DBP, Camphor, Ethyl Tosylamide or Xylene. 

From the website, "Currently a portion of all monthly subscription proceeds are being donated for prevention awareness, the protection of trafficked victims and the prosecution of human traffickers. Need more information regarding human trafficking? Check out the A21 Campaign."  I don't know about you, but I'm more apt to throw my money at a company that will donate a part of it to a good cause.

  7. Unlike the '80s shades I feel these really captured some of the nail colors that were popular in the '90s - I had all three of these types of colors in that period.

    1. I didn't start collecting polish until the late 90s. Now I'm interested in what happened with polish back the .

  8. Desert Storm is a really nice color, but I agree that the name is tactless. Y2K I was never really concerned about so that one doesn't bother me.
