SQUAREHUE: April Bloom Collection Box

Pin It
SquareHue Bloom Collection (L->R) Yellow Submarine,
Flower Power & Groovy Love

Hihihi! Happy Friday! If you're having some rainy, ugly weather, like we are right now - maybe these colors from SquareHue's April Box will brighten your day. This month's collection is called The Bloom Collection, fitting for April. After the jump, I have swatch, review, some nail art and all the links you need!


Here a close up of the polishes included in the collection:

Here we go! (BTW, please excuse the semi-lobster fingers in advance. I didn't realize my fingers were SO RED that day, ugh.)

Yellow creme polishes are one of my favorite polishes. Yellow Submarine is a bright, yellow creme polish. As you might see in the bottle shots, there is some slight shimmer... sadly, that doesn't come across on the nail well. But a pretty, buttery, pollen-y yellow nonetheless!

I did 3 coats of Yellow Submarine. It always seems to be a hit or miss though when it comes to formula. Zoya Pippa and China Glaze Lemon Fizz are my top 2 yellow creme polishes for formula and dry time. This one was okkkkkayyyy in my book. While the dry time was good to go, there was a bit of balding for me (you can see on my pointer and middle nails). I'm not turned off by this formula though, I'm willing to give it another shot. Probably one of the better formulated yellow cremes I have though.

Flower Power was my favorite in the collection! That shouldn't be any surprise though, we all know how I love my greens haha. Flower Power is a medium, grassy, green creme polish. It reminds me of all the fresh leaves on the trees in the spring!

I did 2 coats of Flower Power. This had the perfect formula, smooth application, and a good dry time. I really cant complain about this one!

Okay I have to admit - the name Groovy Love, reminds me of when I was younger (elementary/middle schoolish) haha I was obsessed with bell bottom jeans, tie dye, peace signs, flowers, ect. I can't be the only one! Or maybe I was lmao... I digress haha. Groovy Love is a pretty, light purple, creme polish. It kind of reminds me of purple jelly beans actually!

I did 3 coats of Groovy Love. Again, no issues with this formula, application or dry time. I also like how shiny this one dried. While all of these are relatively shiny without a top coat, I think this one had the most shine to it! Pretty impressive.

Figured I'd slap some spring nail art on my fingers. I've been depriving both of us from it lately!

Just okay haha. Meh, it reminds me of Easter! These polishes were nice to work with for nail art though :]

Just a side note because people have been asking me how I like SquareHue in comparison to Julep... I have been subscribed (and been paying for) SquareHue since December (I accidentally skipped January though haha). So far, I have no complaints about SquareHue's polishes. I think the formula might be a taddddd better than Julep's formulas. You don't get the little "extras" Julep throws in there, but usually I give those to someone else haha.
