SquareHue: March 2014 -- SPOILERS

post #1 of 72
Thread Starter 

Okay, who said Paris??? For March, ladies, we are heading to the City of Lights!

post #2 of 72

Hmmm, on SqH's web site, there's one of those few-second, speeded up, black and white videos of Paris with the tagline "Le [sic] Pièce du Résistance."

 

The picture of Paris looks different than the ones we've seen of New York, London, and Tokyo.  It's mostly sepia tones.  Therefore, I'm going to predict a set of neutrals/nudes, something along the lines of Zoya's Naturel Collection.  If I keep thinking that, I might skip, because I almost never wear nudes.  Of course, I know there's no way to tell for sure!

I'm intrigued! And as long as February isn't another red/white combo, I'll stick around for it!

Funny thing is I was thinking muted, earthy or neutral tones when Paris went through my mind earlier.

Well, I love the February box so much I'll stay for March in Paris too.  If they are nudes, I hope the formula is better than, say, High School Crush from Feb. '13.

post #6 of 72

It's the last week of February, so our boxes should ship in a few days, I hope!  Anyone else want to make guesses about colors?  I'm still thinking nudes/neutrals, and mostly cremes for the finish.  I'd like to see a nice coral or berry pink too, though.

post #7 of 72

I also think they're likely to be nudes. But I bet April will be brights (Rio, maybe?). I think the SH formula is usually too thin and patchy for light colors, but I'm hoping I can make them work. I love High School Crush despite the effort to get it smooth. I hope maybe these are neutral colors with shimmer or something interesting, though. Paris has a little sparkle, right?

 

I'm wearing Ginza on my toes now and it almost makes me forget the heaps of snow outside. Get me ready for spring, SquareHue!

post #8 of 72

I finally got a look at the preview picture for Paris.  My guesses for March:  a golden-brown crelly or shimmer, like the crisp outer layer of a croissant; a metallic grey, like the Eiffel Tower and a  cream in limestone white or rosy taupe sandstone.

 

There's also a greenish color running through the picture, which might be used if they don't want to keep it ALL neutrals.  Although I think that if it were possible for a greenish color to be neutral, it's would be the shade of green that's in the picture!

 

Only a few more days now.

Jenn -- I've noticed the green as well. I know that pale/pistachio green is a color in Essie's Spring Line (Fashion Playground) as well as Zoya (Dillon). Wondering if SqH will do that as well? Personally, I can never have too many greens!

post #10 of 72

Does anyone have that picture?  It's grey and white on the site...no colours.

post #11 of 72

OK, it's the last day of the month -- hope they ship today & I might get them on Monday.  Not impatient... much....

 

EDIT:  Never mind, read that on the 25th they said "four more days."  OK.

Sorry this took so long.  I was having trouble cutting and pasting the picture from the email it came in on my phone.  Finally remembered to send it to myself to try at work.

Thanks but I can't really make out any actual colours...it looks gold maybe???

 

In which case, I so totally hope not.  I have enough golds from SqH.

post #14 of 72

Let me see if this is any better.  Tried blowing it up with picture software.

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 100

 

To me, 1 is a light grey, 2 is a pale, pistachio-y green, 3 is a sort of rosy tan and 4. is a darker grey/greige color.  There's also a fair amount of tan/sepia in the picure.

 

But maybe I'm just reading too much into this.

post #15 of 72

Meh.  I'm not interested in another puke green from SqH either.  I've never been happy with any of their pale greens.  I'd be fine with a grey but I really don't need any gold from them anymore.  I want them to give me a nice tiffany blue, a true white and a blue like the one from last month that's not a foil.

post #16 of 72

And shipping has begun!  I can't believe I somehow missed this thread until now!  Oh, well.  Better late than never.  As for predictions, the preview picture is almost monochromatic to me, so I'm kind of wondering if the box colors might not be in there at all.  Or maybe I'm just utterly exhausted and need to go to bed now.

 

ETA:  Ooh, they just announced the theme for April!

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Amsterdam!  The preview picture makes me think we're likely to see some purple, and orange is practically a requirement because the Netherlands, and maybe a yellow.

If there's likely to be an orange and a yellow, I'm definitely skipping.  So sick of yellow, and I can't wear orange well.  Actually, I'm accumulating so much polish that I'm cutting way back anyway.  Plus it's better for my wallet.
post #18 of 72

Amsterdam looks awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

post #19 of 72

The potential purple in Amsterdam does indeed look awesome but the idea of another yellow or orange (I know it's all speculation) has me thinking of skipping next month.  At any rate, my March box is in town today!  Don't know if I'll get it today or tomorrow.  :-D

post #20 of 72

Cant wait for  this months box :love:...i m hoping to have beautiful colours this month too!!!

post #21 of 72

I'm stalking this page in hopes that someone got their shipment early. I just can't wait and be surprised, I want to know! yey.gif

post #22 of 72

me tooo...:)

post #23 of 72

Here it is! Pardon the crap quality but I'm at the office.

 

Champs Elysees - Pale Green Shimmer

Notre Dame - Pale Peachy creme

Arc de Triomphe - Vintage Rose shimmer - my fave of the box at first glance.  

 

 

 

post #24 of 72

Mine's out for delivery but I don't mind seeing spoiler pictures since this thread ** is ** labeled "spoilers."

 

Sigh... I can't believe we got yet another yellowish-white or whitish-yellow.  I'm giving away the ones I've already gotten because they look like crap on me.  And we just got a shimmery light green last month.  As the French would say, "Merde!!"  When I calm down, I need to decide if I've had it with SquareHue's obsession with yellow.

 

P.S.  Some of you folks were amazingly accurate with the color guesses!

Same here on the spoiler pics. I don't mind them since the thread says spoilers in the title.  Is it me or does it look like there's a pink shimmer on the nude polish? That may or may not be interesting, if it doesn't translate well on the nail, it'll make good undies for the sheer to color thermals I have that I've been thinking of finding undies for. Acutally, all three of them have the potential to be undies for other colors.

post #26 of 72

There is a pink shimmer.  It's a vintage rose color with a pink shimmer to it.

post #27 of 72

I have been lurking for several months (I started getting SquareHue in December) but decided to finally join the discussion! 

 

Thanks for sharing the spoiler! I haven't received my box yet and I always like the polishes more in real life than in pictures but so far this is not looking like my favorite box. While Arc de Triomphe looks gorgeous, I am not happy with Notre Dame. I just don't want another cream color. I'm also not thrilled about the green (I just don't wear a lot of green polish) but I wonder if it could be paired with the green glitter from last month...

 

Although I don't like every polish in every box, I am really happy with SquareHue. I love the idea of the Passport collection and hope that it continues for quite a while. Sometimes (like this month when I wasn't thrilled with the preview picture) I still get the box because I want to see what they will do for the chosen city. As for next month, I think we will definitely get an orange for the Netherlands and a purple since it is prominent in the picture. I also think we will get a green similar to the tree in the picture. 

post #28 of 72

My box just came.  Arc de Triomphe, the nude, does have a pink shimmer and I'm looking forward to swatching it, although I suspect the color will largely disappear on my skin.  Hence "nude," I guess.  My light green Champs Elysees is so light it's almost white (edit: just swatched it on a nail wheel and it's a pale yellow-green shimmer).  And speaking of white/cream, here's Westminster from December, Broadway from January, and this month's Notre Dame:

Color me very, very disappointed.  Sorry to be such a Debbie Downer; I'm going to suspend my SqH account for a while and quit complaining!

Suspending/canceling my account too. Way too similar of colors from month to month. Not risking it next month! I will be jealous of the likely purple you will all probably be getting though.
post #30 of 72

LOL, me too, although I already own enough purple polishes (and every other color, come to think of it) to choke a goat.

 

I don't mean this as criticism of SquareHue because I think they're a good company.  It's not unexpected that with any sub like this, after a while you get dupes or near-dupes.  I think I've reached my limit of not knowing what colors will be in the boxes because I'm starting to give away as many of the SqH polishes as I'm keeping, and I'd rather spend my polish pennies on something I know for sure I want.
