Hello folks. I'm here with another installment of my monthly Square Hue box review. This month, we have the Barcelona collection. All of these polishes are very bold and have a shimmer finish. These all had a great opaque formula. I probably could have gotten away with only one coat of each, but I did two just for test purposes.
As you can see, the box contained an orange shade, a very dark purple shade, and a pink shade. I think the orange and pink are perfect for summer, and the purple is a great fall staple. This seems to be a theme with each box I have received lately, a couple polishes that I will wear now, and at least one that seems a little more autumn/winter to me. That is totally fine though. I only have so many fingers, you know?
The first polish is Rambla de Ravel. This is a very bright yellowy-orange. This is my favorite out of all three. I love that this is a little lighter than some of the other oranges in my collection. It looks great with my (very pale) skin tone. Sometimes yellow and orange polishes just don't look right on me, but this is a good one. The finish is a very pretty micro shimmer. This has the most noticeable shimmer out of the three polishes this month.
Next up is Placa Catalunya. This is a bright fuchsia/magenta shade. Again, this has a micro shimmer finish. I like the color of this polish, but it was a little streaky for me. This was surprising because I have not had this problem with any of my other Square Hue polishes. I think I would have preferred this shade without the silver shimmer, perhaps that would have taken away the streakiness.
Finally, we have Passeig de Gracia. This is an interesting shade. In the bottle, it looks like a dark purple with dark pink shimmer. However, once you put it on, you can not see the shimmer unless you have a light shining directly on your nails. Outside in natural daylight the color is gorgeous. Inside, with no over head lights on it is a little lack luster. Despite that, I do really like this color and think it will be perfect for fall.
Hope you enjoyed this review! Let me know if you have tried out Square Hue. I get so excited when I see that little box on my doorstep.
