Has anyone gotten the First Decade yet? Would love to know the color scheme!

Mine is scheduled for delivery tomorrow. But we get out mail really late in the day so I'm sure someone else will spoil it first.

I didn't have enough info or courage to re-up for January, so I'm really looking forward to seeing what other subscribers get.  Hoping for some "wow" finishes, and colors that aren't repeats.  Just don't know how they're picking colors for the decades -- ones that were popular for nail polish at the time, clothing, decor?  Is it random but they're sticking a decade name on it?  I don't think women, at least "nice" women, wore nail polish in the 1900s.  Anyway, will be fun to see what SqH does with the theme.

Ok..so on the website they are advertising for February (1910) and it has another black and white portrait. However, this time there is also a polish in the middle of the ad that is kind of a coral color. Is this the preview for next month? It's just so weird to me that SquareHue went from monthly (color) previews to these black and white pictures--are they still doing sneak peeks or wanting the box to be a mystery every month?

Well, if that ORANGE polish is in the February box, I'm not reactivating my sub. What IS IT with SquareHue and orange?!?!?

 

<feeling sulky>

And yellows?

 

My guess for January box is a slate grey, a pale yellow, and brick red. I don't know why I think that's the colors we are getting but that's my feeling.

My box is out for delivery today so I'll know soon. I'd thought someone else would have gotten theirs by now. I'll post mine when it's here.

Can't wait to see a spoiler on this!

 

Me too!! I loved what SqH came out with for November (Prague) & December (Rovaniemi), but so much of the Passport series left me <yawn>. The game of guessing what the colors were was easy because we knew the rules. Now we don't. Let's see what they produce.

Mine came before I left for work, which is where I am now, so I can't photograph the colors. But...

 

the colors are a dusty light pink, a light gray that looks to have some shimmer to it, and a deep pinky purple that also looked shimmery, though all the colors were described as high gloss cremes.

 

I will post pictures when I get home, if no one else has by then.

Instagram link please?  Can't find the picture.  The color descriptions sound nice.

 

EDIT:  Nm, here's one plus I found another:  http://iconosquare.com/p/889394350322121754_1653102

 

Pretty!  Can't quite tell what the third color is though.  I'm sorry I didn't get this box.  :(

I just got mine at 5pm today. By then I had already had seen one posted on Instagram.  I'm very happy with them. 

 

Here's some quick spoiler pictures.

Gibson Girl - With quick swatch it seems pretty opaque. I like it as a very wearable shade of pink, at least for my skin color. I'm pretty pale.

First Flight - Subtle sparkle in a dove gray color. Not too silvery looking. Another good neutral for my collection.

Victorian End - The group photos were a little dark since the sun had already set. This individual photo is a little closer to its true color.  It's a dark purple with more of a microglitter than the gray one or this picture shows. I think this one looks very nice.

I think they are 3 nice colors and go nicely together. 

I'll try to give them a go on my nails later tonight.

I totally agree that this is a nicely cohesive collection!  It seems like they would be perfectly at home in February, too.  I probably won't wear the pink since I don't wear pink polish, but it's a great color to represent Gibson Girls.  I'm really looking forward to using Victorian End Sunday night after I'm done thrashing my hands up this weekend!

I'm excited about this box and the Decades Collection. I love that they named colors after events during the decade, I wasn't sure what direction they were going in. I was also really worried about getting a white this month, so I am glad one wasn't sent out. I will wear all the colors they sent. 

 

I also like that there are swatch blanks on the new info card, I always have to immediately swatch on whatever paper I have handy, so it will be fun to get to swatch on the card!

As promised, I took a couple pictures.

 

 

Here are the bottles. From left to right: Gibson Girl 1900, First Flight 1903, and Victorian End 1909.

And here is a swatch on a nail wheel, since I'm not allowed to paint my nails for my job.

 

post-118425-0-47746700-1420254597_thumb.jpg

 

All swatches are two coats.

 

SquareHue calls all of these High Gloss Cremes. Gibson Girl 1900 is a peachy pink creme. I think it's very wearable, and I don't like pink nail polishes in the slightest. First Flight 1903 is what I would call a medium gray, with very small silver shimmer throughout. The shimmer isn't noticeable unless you're looking very closely; from far away it gives the polish a nice sheen. Victorian End 1909 is a deep red violet color, with noticeable micro shimmer. It looks silver and magenta to me; I can't really tell what color it is since the sparkles are so small!

Wow, nice job SqH!

 

I didn't get January's box and as pretty as the shades are, I'm not upset. Pinks & purples are not really my favorite shades. (Says the woman who searched for a pink that matches a Tab can last summer...) However, this new theme intrigues me enough that I might take my subscription off of hold for February.

Really pretty! Thanks for the pics! That said, not sad I skipped - I need another glittery purple like I need a hole in the head :( But if they keep this up (nice, cohesive shades without oranges!!), I'm in for March.  I still want previews, though. . .

Thanks to those who posted swatches!  I think the colors are gorgeous and right up my alley.  I'm going to go grovelling to SquareHue and ask if I can buy the box since I had my sub suspended.  The worst they can do is say no.

 

Still, if February has an orange in it, I'm not getting that month.  Well, I might; I really need more previews/hints too.

:wub: I at least I know I'm going to be happy with one of my subs this month.  

 

I'm not one for being artsy with nail polish (or anything), but I'm going to have to attempt something with that pink and grey. As for the purple, I have so many purples. But it's my favorite color so I'm never upset getting another one. Especially a darker one. 

 

I should be getting mine today. They got to my PO really early this morning and my mail usually leaves the PO mid to late morning.

Ok, I love this collection. I really like how they went with major themes in the decade and channeled the colours they thought would represent it. It's beautiful and I think they really captured the 1900's with it. This is really getting me excited for SH this year - I think it will be fun to wear a decade each month and I actually really want to google the terms to learn more about what happened. Fun and interaction with polishes!

This was my first Square Hue Box! I am impressed with the colors and theme and was very excited to try them. The polish dried fast and looked terrific, but it started chipping the same day, even with top/base coat. D: I never have a problem with polish chipping before 2-3 days.

 

Is this the norm for SH polishes? If for some reason I can't use these polishes, I'm gonna be major bummed because they are SO PRETTY!

 

I hope it was just a fluke! Going to try again with a different color!

    • My Netflix subscription is cancelled. I was only allowed the free month. I wanted so badly to watch a new show called Ares that came out Friday. I did not think I would get to see it before my subscription expired, but I did. I was able to watch it on the last day! I was so happy, because I'm not allowed to renew Netflix per my no buy rules. And I can't live with exceptions to my rules. Ares I loved and hated at the same time. I loved the cast, acting, sets, costumes, hair and makeup, exteriors, and story line. Ares is a great story about a poor and stressed college girl joining an Illuminati type of cult, in Amsterdam. But I hated all the gory horror, and they killed off so many interesting characters. The gory horror is hard to watch, and could be triggering to some. I know the gruesome elements are symbolizing something important in the story, but it's disturbing. The first episodes were good at developing the story, but at the end it was exhausting with all the violence. I think it would have been great as just a psychological drama. Still I'm so glad I got to watch it without violating my rules. Back to watching no buy videos on YouTube now. 
    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!
