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.
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.
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.
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.
Stay tuned for my next SH post on the 02.15 collection, 1910.
