Couldn’t resist what I thought would be fall colors from the monthly subscription box SquareHue for September. This was the preview picture
and I expected a gold, a copper or russet, and a brown.
Give this lady a quarter, because she was very close.
Left to right:
- Oxford Street
- Crown Street (bottle says Crown Drive)
- King Street
Oxford Street is a dark gold shimmer with an orange tone. I actually thought it looked more like a light pumpkin color on my nails. Formula was a little thin and I needed three coats.
Crown Street is a bright reddish orange with gold shimmer, perfect for fall. Two coats.
King Street is a reddish-brown creme. The formula was very good but I think it looks a bit muddy on me. Two coats as well.
My favorite of the three is Crown Street. Such a bright autumnal color. Oxford Street, being a little more sheer, might make an interesting top coat for other polishes.
Here are some comparisons in the bottles only to some previously received SquareHue polishes.
As you can see, Oxford Street is much more orange than the silvery gold Honor. Crown Street is lighter and less brown than Amber Lager. King Street is very close to Buckingham, but Buckingham is more red and I prefer it. King Street is a near dupe for another polish I have, Pepper from Zoya.
The October box will be Milan, Italy, in the Passport Collection. Might skip this one because I see orange/red shades again. I mean, I love fall colors, but c’mon! There might be a black too, which would also hit a Halloween theme, like last year’s October box from SquareHue, which I skipped.
