I’ve subscribed to SquareHue, which is a monthly nail polish subscription box. You don’t get to choose the colors but each $21 box generally has a theme. The July 2013 SquareHue box theme is Salute!



The Colors

  • Valor
  • Patriot
  • Honor

This box was great! Not your typical red, white, and blue shades you would normally expect in July. These shades remind me more of the military or our nation’s flag (with the blue shade Patriot especially!).


Valor is an Army olive green shade. In some light it pulls more green, in other light a bit more tan. I think this will work very well come Autumn, maybe even with some golden glitter on top (I love my glitter!).

Patriot a stunning royal blue shade. The formula on this one leaned a bit on the watery side but overall was fine. Considering the theme of this month’s collection, it does remind me a bit of the blue color in our nation’s flag! I really think this color is my favorite out of the box this month. It’s just a really great royal blue.

Honor is a lovely golden shimmery foil. Really easy to apply with no streaking.

All swatches needed 2 thin coats and I did not use any base or top coat in the swatches.

I enjoyed the SquareHue Salute Collection this month and can not wait to see what they have planned for next month!

I can’t recommend SquareHue enough. You get a ton of polish for the price, a good variety of colors, they donate to worthy causes… no gimmicks. They do nail polish and they do it very well.

Price: $21 per month
Where to Buy: SquareHue.com

I love Valor and Patriot. The Valor shade would be gorgeous in the fall with a cozy sweater and well… Patriot because… Tardis Blue, haha. I am not a big fan of “foil” or “metalic” shades though… I find they’ve always chipped faster for me.

While on the subject of nail polish, do you own any shades of grey? I am looking for a polish to recreate this look with: http://pinterest.com/pin/259801472226324341/. I have a matte top coat, but I have yet to locate that shade of grey. Do you own or can you recommend? Thanks, Sarah!

I really like the grey I got in the SquareHue SoBe Collection and Zoya’s nail polish in Dove.

I love them! It’s a very sophisticated collection of colors – definitely a step above typical “red/white/blue” for “patriotic” theme. And they’d work really well individually – I can see valor being definite go-to color for fall!

Valor and Honor are right up my alley! The bottles are quite big too! If you subscribe I doubt you’ll EVER run out of nail polishes ;)

LOL I’ve run out of room on all my polish shelves so I’ve had to move all of my SquareHue polishes and Essie polishes to the top of my makeup storage area.

Valor! I’d love to see that with a gold glitter gradient! Sparkles!

YES! I thought that too! I thought at first maybe Deborah Lippmann Boom Boom Pow… so I’ll try that and see how it looks.
