Square Hue Polish in Turn On 1966

This is a neon matte shade – and it looks just like a highlighter! (Swatched on the last photo).

Square Hue Nail Polish Subscription Box Review – July 2015 Swatches

Verdict: I think Square Hue is a great polish-only subscription box. I like their formula, and I think they do a great job of getting on-trend shades/finishes in every box. The colors this month have a fun retro ’60s vibe, but the neon yellow might be a little too bright for me to actually use. I do like the matte neon look though – I definitely don’t have any polishes like these in my collection.

What do you think of the July Square Hue box?

  1. Like the bright colors for the summer! When will you be doing a Giveaway contest?

  2. Now that this review is up I feel comfortable saying “Tune In” is a dupe of Zoya Charisma. I swatched them on the same clear nail wheel just to make sure. While I love the colors (even if they aren’t unique and one is a clear dupe) I’m sad they only focused on Woodstock for the 1960’s. So many important things happened in that decade. For the past boxes they have done a great job touching on several events. This box didn’t mention anything other than Woodstock. What gives? The civil rights movement, The Beatles, etc. I put my SQ account on suspend for now.

  3. Willing to try it out – do you have a coupon code?

  4. I love all three colors! I wore the two matte polishes earlier this week, and they chipped off almost completely within a few hours. Very weird. I didn’t add an overcoat because I loved the matte look, but I’ll have to experiment, I guess, to see if I can find a way to make them last longer. (If anyone has suggestions, let me know.) I’m wearing the duochrome (Drop Out) right now (no chipping problems with this one), and love it. Such a pretty color!

    • I had the same problem with the neon yellow. I put a white base coat under it and not only did it pop more, it hasn’t chipped yet.

    • Out of all the polishes made matte polishes are the ones that chip easiest. The formula to make the polish matte causes it to be very weak. A good base coat like Zoya Anchor will help quite a bit. If you are rough on your nails consider 2-3 days excellent wear time. A good top coat can also help but it will still chip easier than other polishes. I love mattes myself but don’t wear them very often because of the chipping factor. Maybe one day nail polish technology will make a strong matte. One can hope! 🙂

  5. I absolutely love the colors you received! I keep thinking the yellow is my favorite, but the other two are gorgeous as well.
