Right on the Nail ~ SQUAREHUE Colors From the Decades Collection: the 1930s Swatches and Review: WPA 1935

The Unboxing

SQUAREHUE WPA 1935 (2 coats)

Tonight I have a polish from the monthly subscription box, SQUAREHUE. They are similar to Julep, except they don't try and send makeup (thank goodness!). Each box contains 3 brand new polishes each month, all with a central theme. This year they have been featuring colors from each decade. The boxes are $19.99 each ($14.99 plus shipping), and they actually arrive fairly quickly unlike my Birchbox or Ipsy bags. Oh, and I believe 30% of all proceeds go to a charity which is awesome. 

Up first is WPA 1935 which is a medium minty green creme. Well, it's sort of minty, but when I think of mint, I usually associate it with colors like Essie's Mint Candy Apple. Just me? This was probably my favorite color of the 3, but for some reason none of them really remind me of 1930's colors (like I'd know what that would look like anyway!). The formula was thin, but workable. I probably wouldn't get this box every month, but I think they have some nice colors with a better value than Julep. 

Also, do you want to know more about the Works Progress Administration for which this polish was named? Feel free to find out more here!
