SquareHue The Adventure Collection: Pub Crawl Dublin | March 2016

I am sooo excited about my polishes this month!! They don’t really make me think of a pub crawl, but they definitely make me thing springtime and THAT is exciting to me! I’m so glad it’s finally starting to warm up, which mean spring is upon us and I can start pulling out my lighter colors! Yippee!!


Now, let’s discuss the polishes! My favorite color in this box is called Temple Bar. It is a pastel orange high gloss créme that is opaque in one coat! I just love, love, love this color! I hope it looks as good on my hand as it does in the swatch! The second color in this box is called St. John. It is a sky blue, high gloss creme. This color is also opaque in one coat. There has been a blue polish in every box this year, I’m kind of over the blues. However, this is my favorite shade of blue that they’ve sent this year. I definitely look forward to test driving this color in the coming months! The final color is called Bridge Inn. It is a textured off white color with holographic glitter. It dries with a grainy texture that kind of puts me in the mindset of a nail file. It’s really different and something about the texture makes me really like it! I’ve never worn a white polish before, but maybe the holographic glitter in this polish will push me to try this color out. I may not do a full mani with this color, but at least an accent nail.

SquareHue is a nail polish subscription where you can receive either 3 full size polishes a month for $21 or 2 polishes for $16 a month, depending on your preference. Every month, I am pleasantly surprised with the color variety that is always spot on with the theme of the year/month. With every subscription, a portion of the proceeds are contributed to prevention awareness of human trafficking.

Nails of the Week | Ciaté London Pool Party and Comic Strip

After receiving my order from Sephora which included these nail polishes, I couldn’t wait to try them out! Pool Party is the perfect royal blue creme nail polish! It is a true blue and I LOVE it! What I was picturing this color to look like when I purchased it is exactly what it was when I received it! The only thing I did not like about this polish was the brush. The brush was round which made application kind of uneven. Also, the polish is not very opaque. It took three coats to get the opacity pictured below.

I used Comic Strip on my accent nails. It is a matte glitter. I had to apply about three layers to get the amount of glitter pictured because as I would brush the polish on, it would move the glitter around. But, even with the few mishaps I faced with these nail polishes, I absolutely LOVED the outcome and I think these two colors together are quite awesome!

What are your thoughts on this polish? Have you ever tried Ciate London polishes? Let me know in the comments.
