So what's this Moto collection all about?
|Opening up the box|
|From L to R: Iron Horse, Desert Grit, Oil Slick|
|Better look at the colours|
Iron Horse is a glossy, creamy black. This colour is perfect for me underneath chunky glitter polishes (I like to put a lot of my glitters with a clear base under black or white polish). And can I just say I love the name! Iron Horse is actually a character in Julie Kagawa's awesome book series "The Iron Fey". Maybe there are some Iron Fey fans working at Squarehue? :)
Desert Grit is a lovely orange with a twist - the finish is gritty and a bit shiny. Kind of like OPI Liquid Sands, this is a textured polish. Nice way to update the typical basic orange of Halloween.
Oil Slick is another interesting shade - it's actually a duochrome (purple/green - with hints of silver). This is a dupe for Essie's For the Twill of it, which I've tried and loved, but I've actually given that polish to my mum so this Squarehue is poised to take it's place.
Let's see some swatches!
|Indoor light (wow, love all these finishes!)|
I think this is a great box for October, with a variety of fall/Halloween shades (and some nice texture!) Squarehue is not one of the bigger polish boxes out there, but they are really impressing me by delivering each month with on-trend shades (shipped on time as well). If you're considering a polish sub and don't mind not knowing exactly what you're going to get each month, give this a go.
FYI, November's box is The Coastal Collection...I'm guessing from the picture, the polishes will be blues, greys, greens? Looking forward to it!
