SquareHue takes us to Hawaii in August with the Scuba Hawaii box

Aloha! When I heard the SquareHue August box would be featuring Hawaii in Scuba Hawaii, my mind was immediately transported to our trip to Maui some years ago. Although we are not certified in scuba, you can still snorkel your days away on a host of pristine beaches on nearly all of the islands. You’ll see hosts of coral in every color, tropical fish that you thought you’d only see in an aquarium and let’s not forget the adorable honu (sea turtles)! There’s more of the Hawaiian Islands to see than just above ground with waterfalls, sand in every color, palm trees, Plumerias and bamboo forests. There’s a whole other world underwater! Let me get your appetite swimming!

Feeling so tropical with these three beauties from the SquareHue Adventure Collection for 8/16, Scuba Hawaii. From Left, Nani (Beautiful), ikaika (Strong), and Akamai (Intelligent).

I featured all three of the Scuba Hawaii shades from the August box. I HAD to design an underwater scene of course. Nani is described as a high gloss creme but if you look close, there is a hint of shimmer in there. Ikaika is a true high gloss smokey purple, and Akamai is a true blue/green foil.

And a bit closer up so you can see my undersea nail art. Sorry I’m no Van Gogh! lol No worries Brah!

Having been to Maui, HI myself, I can tell you that the underwater world there is as captivating as on the sand. I'm sure it was difficult for SH to settle on no more than three shades. For example, the Parrot Fish alone often displays sometimes a minimum of five colors! Always picking at the coral, it seems Parrot Fish have a voracious appetite.

Conclusion: All formulas were 2 coaters for me. My fave was the blue/green foil, Akamai! I love that the orange creme has a surprise subtle shimmer. And the smokey purple was amazingly glossy and perfect to apply. Since Maui was the only island we visited, I can only speak for that island, but if you only visit once, I’d give a zillion stars to Maui. We snorkeled every day and on the west-southwest beaches we found some secret spots that were uncanny. We went to the Old Lahaina Luau. Not to be missed! We flew in a helicopter over the island and the dormant volcano Haleakala. Parasailed at 800 feet in the air and snorkeled Molokini where we saw teams of Honu! Best vacation ever!

SquareHue July ’16 Adventure Collection: Celebrate Freedom America

July 4th, Independence Day has come and gone. The heat is still here though! We had a fabulous celebration and ended the day with a huge display put on the by city of Temple, Texas. You’ll see the patriotic mani I wore using the three polishes from this month’s box from SquareHue, Celebrate Freedom America. We’ve had a houseful and I’ve even had a chance to create a simple followup mani using the same colors. Sorry for the slight delay of this post. Just a few days late. 🙂 Here we go!

Perfect collection of colors for the SquareHue July Adventure Collection, Celebrate Freedom America / 07.16. Fireworks, a red jelly based glitter. Stars, a white shimmer. And Independence, a super glossy deep blue creme.

I especially love holiday collections because it takes the guesswork out of assembling your shades and finishes for the next time that holiday rolls around.

The Celebrate Freedom America collection for July 2016! Stars is a mild shimmer in a white creme. Fireworks a red jelly based glitter. And my fave of the bunch, Independence is a deep blue high gloss creme with a slightly jelly feel.

Here are the two manicures I created.

Here I feature all three polishes from the Celebrate Freedom America box. I'm holding Independence. The white polish, Stars is opaque in 2 coats. Independence in 3 coats. Fireworks has a nice red jelly base so opaque in 2-3 coats.

It was a busy day on the 4th of July when I did this mani and almost forgot to snap a photo! Sorry about the fuzzy cell phone shot. But this was my patriotic mani using the July colors from the SquareHue Celebrate Freedom America box. Here I'm holding Fireworks!

Conclusion: All three polishes’ finishes were easy to apply, quick to dry and I especially loved the deep blue one, Independence. Any jelly-like polishes are always a win-win. Glossy, smooth to apply and to me the real standout of a skittle mani. Bonus: the blue didn’t stain my nails!

SquareHue The Adventure Collection Pub Crawl Dublin collection!

The month of March brings SquareHue The Adventure Collection Pub Crawl Dublin collection! An eye-popping set of juicy shades featuring two different finishes. I’m loving these shades and a fun addition and sort of rare is the white texture.

Timid yet brilliant blue high gloss creme is St. John. A quick drying glass finish. The creamy orange is super glossy as well, it's called Temple Bar. And the one shade begs to differ from the others, a shy creme white, but not super pure white...it's a sparkly textured finish.

You won’t have the blues when you’re wearing blue hues like this! St. John is gorgeous!

St. John is a caribbean blue, maybe reminiscent of Curacao? A creme blue, 2 coats here.

Juicy orange creme, Temple Bar looks good enough to eat.

Temple Bar reminds me of a glass of OJ with creme mixed in. Really glossy, 2 coats here.

A sugary textured white, Bridge Inn, not too white but very complimentary to every skin tone.

Bridge Inn is a slightly off white textured polish that looks like it contains a good portion of sugar! 2 coats, on the thick side, but totally doable.

Conclusion: No blarney here, these polishes are perfect for March! The Temple Bar and St. John shades are glossy and quick drying, only required 2 coats. Bridge Inn took a bit more patience in application, but that is how textures are. The outcome is worth the effort.

SquareHue Decades Collection 1970 for 8.15 is here!

I KNEW this month’s collection for “1970s” would be boss! I was right and I’m so glad SquareHue was so diverse with the formulas in this box. Remember, SH typically has had 3 per box in its monthly delivery, and now offers a 2 polish set as well. Let’s move on to the review!

I LOVE this month's Decades collection from SquareHue. 1970s for 08.15 is a huge hit! From left, Watergate, iPolish and Night Fever.

Here is Watergate. Gorgeous, that’s it in a nutshell!

Watergate is a super high gloss micro glitter shimmery blue polish with enough shine to carry you all day long. Ahh, Watergate, those were the days! Just kidding. This is a fairly sheer, but easy to apply polish. This is 3 coats and depending on how opaque or white your free-edge is, you will need 3-4 coats. But it's easy application and smooth as silk. This kind of formula is great if you have to do more than 2 coats. The outcome is worth it!

iPolish is the most perfect 1-coater glossy white I’ve ever encountered!

iPolish is a fabulous ONE-COATER white creme. You heard that right. It's SO pigmented, my jaw dropped as I applied it! Square Hue did a fabulous job creating this basic white, and it's insane glossiness tops off a perfect...white...glossy...miracle!

Night Fever, a dance floor must-have! Just a little reference to John dancin’ the night away!

I used iPolish under this glittery topcoat with a little dancin' hit movie reference thrown in for good measure. Dig the dance floor. mirror ball using "Night Fever", and even the hairy chest under the black shirt w/white suit reference! I think Travolta himself may even approve. ;-)
