I subscribed to Square Hue back in January and I’m just now getting around to trying some of the polishes. This particular one is a warm orange. Now, as you can see, orange is really not my color. But it is, however, my baseball team’s color and they have been doing very well lately. So I’m willing to take the orange bullet for today.
I was worried at first because the formula was very chalky and streaky at first, but the second coat covered everything pretty well. It dries slightly darker than what’s in the bottle.
My Gramma’s kitchen was this color. (We are truly paragons of taste in my family.)
Which is probably why I put some glitter on it.

Actually, I think it broke up the orange enough so that my skin doesn’t look quite as sallow. Yay!
This was a surprisingly okay formula for an orange. I’m looking forward to trying more from this brand!
Ann is a bright, happy poppy color. I struggled a bit with the formula – it can be a little streaky – but the color payoff in the end is worth it. This one isn’t worth full Julep price, however. Definitely wait for a sale.
Unlike yesterday’s, this coral leans orange. It has a slight shimmer but appears to be a cream on the nail. Opaque in 2 coats.
Lily is a frosty almost metallic peach. It has a tendancy to be brush stroky, but you can get it opaque in 2 coats.
Every time I go home, Mom and I have a mani night. This last time around I took the fall KB Shimmer collection with me. Mom picked this lovely muted orange linear holographic glitter and agreed to be my hand model for the swatch.
She’s a natural – and really making me re-think my nail shape.
She went with two coats, which was still slightly sheer, so three coats might be needed for full opacity.
This lovely copper metallic is opaque in 1-2 coats.
This light, frosty peach doesn’t have the best formula Zoya’s ever come up with, but it’s not bad. For best results, use 2-3 coats.
This coral shimmer is more on the orange side of things. It’s opaque in two coats.
This creamsicle polish is opaque in 2-3 coats.
This bright coral has a lovely 2-coat formula. Although the shade is slightly deeper than the cult favorite Flip Flop Fantasy by China Glaze, I would recommend this over that one any day.
