I love this month’s installment from the monthly subscription service, SquareHue! Bright, happy and vibrant high gloss cremes take us down memory lane to the 1950s. It was such a happy time with many firsts of the century. Disneyland opened in 1955, Elvis was king, and Alaska joined the USA in 1959. The post war boom brought about many new technologies. What a great time! But enough of the history lesson, let’s take a look at these babies!
First up is Palm Springs 1950!
I want to clear something up while we are discussing the Palm Springs shade. It is not a dupe for 04.14’s Beethoven Straat. See below.
Now that we have that out-of-the-way, let’s move on to Bel Air 1957.
Finally, here is Sock Hop 1958. I want to disclose that I never got to go to one because I was only 3 years old at the time 😉
Final thoughts. I love this collection even though they were all the same finish. When they are this glossy and fabulous, I say bring ’em on! All were on the thin side, but no pooling. I used three coats with each although the Sock Hop seemed a bit thicker and more pigments. You could get by with two.
Come back in July for my next SH post on the 07.15 collection, 1960s. They ship out on the 1st of the month!
