I’m going to be honest, half of the reason I was so enthralled with Squarehue’s decades collection was because I wanted the 1920s. I’ve been obsessed with the decade since I can remember, so this box had a ton to live up to. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
Cocktails & Cigarettes 1920 (Sheer)
Description: Peach/Teal Sheer Shimmer
This is such a cool and unique polish. It’s hard to see in my picture but it has a teal shimmer to it. According to Squarehue you can layer it over black polish to get a teal color, and over white to get a peach chiffon shimmer. I’m really getting into using funky polish toppers so this is perfect.
Style & Speed 1921 (Micro-glitter)
Description: Silver Metallic Micro-glitter (glossy mirror like finish)
In general I’m not crazy about silver polishes, but this didn’t feel 1920s to me or seasonally appropriate. (Silver just doesn’t’ scream out “spring” to me). I associate the 1920s more with gold and black and of course flapper red. This one was a disappointment.
Art & Deco 1925 (Shimmer)
Description: Copper Shimmer
It’s funny to me that this shade reminds me more of Art Nouveau than Art Deco but still lovely and decade appropriate. This is a unique shade and works well for spring.
I’ll admit it, I’m super sad this didn’t have a flapper red in it. If I’d loved all the shades it might have been enough to offset my sadness, but the silver was a big miss for me. The other colors did make up for it so I still gave this box a “like” verdict. I paid $19.99 (with shipping and handling) and I got two unique generously sized polishes that I love and one polish that isn’t quite my style. I still think that’s a lot of bang for my buck, so I’m quite happy with this and hoping to see something that’s not a metallic for the 1930s box.
What did you think of the collection? Is this what you’d expect from a 1920s theme?
