Square Hue February 2014 The Passport Collection: Tokyo
(L->R) Roppongi, Shibuya, and Ginza

Hey guys! I haven't reviewed a Square Hue box in long time so I figured I'd share this month's box with you. I've received this sub box for over a year now and these are some of the most unique colors I've received from them yet.. so I couldn't not share these fun polishes with you! Each month SquareHue releases a new collection which is a total surprise every time you get the box. This month's collection is Tokyo, featuring names of different districts and wards of Tokyo. After the jump I have swatches and review of this month's trio.

Roppongi is a lime green and iridecent glitter in a lime green base with gold shimmer. This is probably the most sheer of the 3. I was super excited when I opened the box and saw this glittery polish! I think this might be the most unique Square Hue polish I've received. I wish it wasn't so sheer, but I love the colors!

I did 2 coats of Roppongi over Wet n Wild Stand the Test of Lime. The application was great, smooth application with no issues. No issues with dry time either :]

Shibuya is a fuchsia base with micro shimmer that has a violet shift at certain angles. This was my favorite out of the trio, and yet again another unique polish from Square Hue that I can't compare to anything I've received before. I've seen swatches of this on its own but I wasn't in the mood to build up this polish lol.

I did 2 coats of Shibuya over China Glaze Traffic Jam. I had no issues with application or dry time with this one either.

Square Hue Ginza is a shimmery light blue polish. This was my least favorite of the 3, probably because I have a few polishes similar to this one, but the others take less effort to build up. Nonetheless it is still a pretty shade of blue with pretty shimmer.  You can see some brush stroke marks, but it isn't obnoxious or too obvious unless you're staring for a bit hahaha.

I did 2 coats of Ginza over Sinful Colors Grecian Sun. Yet again, I didn't have any issues with applying this polish and dry time was also without problems :]

If you're not happy with Julep, I highly suggest checking out this subscription. I've kept this sub for over a year and I have never been disappointed with the formulas with this brand. The only down side I could see is that you don't get to select the polishes you receive, it is a 100% mystery until boxes are received. You can find more info about this sub in my first Square Hue post :]

TTYL,
