Square Hue P.C. Hooftstraat

I heard about Square Hue last fall and subscribed right away to find out what it was all about. Square Hue is a nail polish subscription box service and they release full-size limited edition polishes each month. I’ve received a few boxes since I subscribed and I’m super impressed with their polishes.  The last couple of boxes have been nothing short of perfection!

This color in particular was amazing! It’s called P.C. Hooftstraat from the Amsterdam collection. I don’t think you can buy it separately, but hopefully Square Hue will start selling their polishes outside of boxes at some point. In the meantime, you can subscribe and receive three new polishes each month! :)

Essie Find Me An Oasis

20140218-130802.jpg

Not sure how I feel about this pale blue color from Essie. It’s certainly beautiful, but on my super pale hands, it looks rather ghostly. I don’t tend to enjoy extremely light colors, but thought I’d give this one a try.

What do you guys think?

Sheer Plaid Nails

I saw a manicure on Pinterest the other day and wanted to try it out, but with different colors. The colors I picked were a bit sheer, and it ended up creating a sort of plaid look. Super cool!

Polishes Used:
Essie Chinchilly
Essie Watermelon
Essie Resort Fling
Seche Vite Top Coat

I created this manicure by first painting my nails with the gray color (Chinchilly), appying a top coat, and letting it dry completely. Then I used scotch tape and masked off a portion of the nail so that I could paint the lighter coral color (Resort Fling). I made sure to do one nail at a time and remove the tape immediately after painting the coral color. Then I applied a thin top coat and let it dry. Finally, I taped off the other side of the nail, painted the magenta color (Watermelon), and peeled off the tape immediately. Then I finished the nail art design with a clear top coat. :)
