The SquareHue Story
As many of you know, SquareHue is an online, nail polish subscription service on a mission. Every month our members receive their two or three luxurious nail polish colors. The brand has set its standards high and delivers a 7-free clean formula, one of the cleanest in the industry, cruelty-free, vegan-friendly and proudly made in the USA.
What makes us truly unique is that SquareHue was intentionally created with the purpose of funding organizations that are changing the world. Currently a portion of all monthly subscription proceeds are donated for prevention awareness, protection of trafficked victims and prosecution of human traffickers, through The A21 Campaign.
What inspired us?
Four friends, a Cuban, a Brazilian, a Peruvian and an American (Cuban descent) were moved with compassion as we volunteered to host various cause-based organizations for a large event in Miami. We hosted the likes of charity: water, Feed My Starving Children, Compassion International, Samaritan’s Purse and of course The A21 Campaign. After meeting and interacting with these organizations, we knew something had changed within us. We could not return to our daily work routine and ignore the needs of those suffering in the global landscape.
We quickly realized we could not all quit our jobs and go dig a well in Africa. We have families and kids in school and college. Our positions at work and responsibility for a large number of people made walking out a “non-option”. Willingness was not the problem, logistics was. So, we set out to make a way where there seemed like there was no way. We reasoned that if we could not personally go and fix the problem, we would fund those that were already out there doing the work and doing it very well!
Starting in March of 2012, we agreed to meet every Monday evening to brainstorm ideas (We still meet on Monday nights). Four months of meetings finally yielded a feasible business idea which the girls in the group were ecstatic about! A nail polish (small product, takes up little space) membership box (ships once a month, addresses the “time” issue) that is feasible (didn’t take huge capital to get inventory). That is only the product side though. We still had to build a company around the product. For that, we invested our professional skills (finance, engineering, technology and graphic design) and personal time to create a fashion-centric brand and strong online presence. Needless to say, we were the first members of our nail polish subscription box.
In five short years SquareHue has already donated to organizations like The A21 Campaign, PolishedGirlz, and local organizations like Touching Miami with Love. Company President and CoFounder, Laura Cuevas goes on to say, “We realize we cannot help everybody but it is our responsibility to help somebody.”
