Colorizing your world, one digit at a time

I’m so excited to present my review of the 2015 Decades collections for SquareHue. They’ve started out with a bang and some pretty buttery smooth shades with the January box, 1900. I love how the included description cards now have a swatch box that you can apply a sample of it’s corresponding shade. There is even enough room for a notation of how many coats you need for each shade. And on the back of the card there is a paragraph of history to give you a sense of what that decade was like. Very clever! Let’s take a look.

SquareHue presents the beginning of what looks like to be a fabulous year of the 2015 Decades Collection. 1900 is the collection for 01.15 with Gibson Girl, First Flight and Victorian End.

Here is the first shade, Gibson Girl, which applied in full opacity in two buttery smooth coats. The first coat had me a bit concerned as it was a bit streaky, but it leveled out quickly, and the second coat brought it all together. I used the two other shades for the accent nail just for fun.

Gibson Girl is a delicate mauvey rose in a high gloss creme. 1900 was the heyday of the Gibson girl fashion with it's fluffy topknots and broach clipped high collar lace blouses.

Reminiscent (and this is what this year’s collections are all about, reminiscing) of the dawn of human flight, First Flight is a nice pale grey. 2015 does seem to be the year of greys and this one is very palatable.

First Flight is a high gloss creme with a hint of shimmer. This is three coats and applies buttery smooth. This one celebrates the launch of the Wright bros. flying machine on December 17, 1903.

Last we have Victorian End. With the death of UK’s Queen Victoria in 1901, the world would soon see itself at war only 13 post. Fashion and attitude did find itself skipping across the pond to the United States and we truly saw the end of the Victorian age. But enough of history! Here is a pleasant purple so named for the Victorian End.

Victorian End is a high gloss creme with a hint, just a tiny one of shimmer. 1909 was to mark the end of the innocent era.
