September’s theme is The Adventure Collection.




Square Hue Polish in Sandstone – Value $10

Sandstone is a red-pink translucent polish with prismatic glitter. The glitter shines pink and gold when light hits it. I got pretty good coverage with this glitter polish with 2 coats. It would look very pretty over a bright pink or white polish.


Square Hue Polish in Slot Canyon – Value $10

Slot Canyon is a rusty brown high gloss creme polish. It makes me think of a hazelnut latte. The color feels very fall and is my favorite in this month’s box. The creme polishes have such a nice shine to them, even without a topcoat.


Square Hue Polish in Corkscrew Canyon – Value $10

This blue color has a definite purple undertone. It is a high gloss creme polish like Slot Canyon. Corkscrew Canyon works very well with the warm tones in Sandstone and Slot Canyon by adding a cool tone touch.


Here are all the colors on my nails. This box definitely puts me in the mood for fall. It’s like a warm latte on a cool day with a touch of sparkle.

Verdict: I like this selection this month. It feels like fall without being packed with rusty reds and yellows. The blue and red-pink glitter shades will transition easily into any season. I think $21 for 3 polishes is a decent value, especially when compared to other polishes of this quality that are normally priced around $10 each. The formula of Square Hue polishes continues to impress me and the rusty-brown shade, called Slot Canyon, was my favorite this month. It works really well with my red hair and fair complexion!
