Influenster Frosty Vox Box!

Hi babes!

It has been a couple months since I have checked in and I really need to get better at blogging and being consistent. I thought showing you the Influenster Frosty Vox Box would be a good way to start!

Here is what is included in the box:
No7 Protect and Perfect Intense ADVANCED serum
NYC Expert Lasr Lip Color in Sugar Plum
Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Decaf Green Tea
EcoTools Hair Brush
Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover
Rimmel Scandleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner
McCormick Gourmet Thyme
Fruit Vines Bites

I have already tried the tea and I am so excited to try everything else!

This is an awesome Vox Box. I love the mix of items to try out and I think I will be getting a lot of use out of everything. I heard the fruit vines were awesome and the EcoTools brush does wonders. Check back soon for more updates!

UPDATE / FULL REVIEW - Celestial Seasoning Candy Cane Lane Decaf Tea:
This tea tastes absolutely wonderful! I added no sugar and I am usually a sweet tea kind of gal. I am actually suffering from strep throat right now (I know Merry Christmas to me) and it has just the right amount of peppermint flavor and it is so soothing on my throat. This is something I would drink all year around!

Review - Charlie's Rad Lacquer

 Hey dolls! 

I am so happy being in the polish business because as a maker I can swap with other makers and try out polish. I recently swapped with the super awesome Charlie's Rad Lacquer. The bottles are different, the colors stand out and I really enjoyed getting to know this brand! 

The colors are really great, the formula is nice, and dries really great. I had no issues with application at all. They were well pigmented. Below I have posted the 4 colors I swatched. They are beautiful! 

This is "American Warrior" an awesome royal blue with great holo accents. I think this is a great transitional color from summer to fall. 
This is "Dreamy Lilac" and it is dreamy. Such a sophisticated and classy color! 
This is "Nellys Belly" and this was probably my favorite. The pink is so different than a lot of pinks I own. Again, holo (yea I liked my holos), and just all around classy. 
This is "Luckiest Shamrock" and this green is so bold and super awesome! 

I highly suggest going to check out Charlie's Rad Lacquer!

Bi-Monthly Limited Edition Box

Just a reminder on the current Bi-monthly Limited Edition duo, that is available until September 30 and the new duo is introduced on Oct 1.

I like to keep it a bit of a mystery, but as people order, and I repost photos on Instagram and Facebook the mystery fades a bit.

The October box will consist of a metallic fall color and a glitter bomb. You may have noticed that I have not done many glitter bombs in my regular line, I tried with a couple in fall 2014 collection as it is something that I am getting used to making. The glitter bomb in this bi-monthly limited edition box is a ton of fun though!

The first bi-monthly limited edition box was a;hit with the holo micro glitter polish.
All the polishes I make for the duos will never be made again or put into full production. They are named LE 1, and 2 the first box, and October - November will be LE 3 and 4

I am going to take December off to start a new bi-monthly box because November 1 will be the release of the Winter 2014 and the Christmas / Holiday Set!

The Schedule is pretty simple after that.
Jan-Feb, LE 5 and 6
Mar-Apr, LE 7 and 8
and so on...

I am trying to make these boxes super special and unique from my regular production to keep you all interested!

If there are ever any suggestions or questions you can always email me at
and I respond within 24 hours.

Custom Nail Polish Orders

Hi my loves!

I just wanted to remind you all that Daily Hues Nail Lacquer makes custom color requests. They can be 1 bottle or any amount. The opportunities are endless to work with me and create your vision! I love making the visions come true!

In most cases I have everything, supply-wise for customs but in other cases I have had to order glitters or something that you want, which may make turn around time a little longer. I just ask that you remember that when ordering customs, so it gives you and me plenty of time to work through the creative process.

I will name them whatever you like as well. They work great as gifts for bridesmaids, flower girls and others in a wedding, they also are great for birthdays, or just a girls night in with friends.

I have a custom listing on my shop here:
If I have to order anything else I will let you know and we can split that cost.
Please leave your information and base ideas in the comments at check out then we can email back and forth until they are just perfect!

Review - Black Dahlia Lacquer

Hey lacquer loves!
I have three polishes to share with you from an upcoming indie brand expected to release in September! 
All three of these colors are really beautiful!
This brand is a mother, daughter duo and you can check them out currently on Facebook for updates / and other photos of their colors.

The first color I have for you is Strawberry Fields. It is a pretty lighter red shade, with little gold flecks / glitter. The red is so soft, and it isn't pink either. I love the subtle tones of this red. It is such a flattering color! 

The second color I have to show you is Amethyst Pansies. What a gorgeous pale purple holo! It is jammed packed with pretty holo and it again is a super flattering color. I would love to see this on a darker skin tone as well. 

The third color is Green Zinnia. This is a really pale blue with turquoise tiny flecks in it. This is a really pretty color as well. 

All in all this new brand I think is going to be great. It looks like they have taken their time to create this line. They are creative with their names too. The formula of their polishes is smooth. I did think Green Zinnia was a little on the runny side, but I adjusted how I applied and then it was fine. Also, the coverage is great. 2 Coats of Strawberry Fields, and Amethyst Pansies and 3 of Green Zinnia. The logo is nice, and I think you can notice right away who the brand is with their pretty red dahlia flower. I would suggest giving them a like on Facebook and checking out their Instagram @blackdahlialacquer for updates on releases and to see their other awesome colors!

Review - I Am Custom Color

Hi my nail loves! 

Today I have a wonderful cosmetics company - I Am Custom Color. Not only an awesome nail polish collection but eye shadows, lippies and scrubs! 
Ashlie, the owner and creator has an amazing heart! Her collection are all focused around worldy causes and a portion if sales from each collection go to those according charities! I am so happy to share this with you! 

First up is a fun green glitter topper - "Gaia Graffitti" It has so many different shapes, bars, stars, dots, squares and more. The formula is awesome. Not thick or gloppy, totally easy to apply.  I have two coats and a top coat over OPI "You are so outta lime" 

The next color is another awesome glitter bomb called "Girls of Phnom Penh" this is the capital of Cambodia and high the highest rate of child sex trafficking. I know it is underlay unimaginable to think of but also remember Ashlie is doing her part for making it better. This is two coats over OPI "Planks a Lot" with topcoat 

The next color is "Ledaw is Syria" 
C.E.D.A.W. is an UN Convention to End Discrimination Against Women in Syria. This is a black jelly also packed with tons of colorful glitter. Hearts, hexes, and tiny squares. I put on three coats, no undies and a topcoat. 

The next portion of this post has FIVE holos! 2 are customs and three are available now! 

The first custom is called "Stinky and Pink" a lovely light pink with just the right amount of holo. Formula is fabulous! This is three thin coats and no topcoat

Next up is "Global Hottie" this is out now as well. Such a gorgeous peachy, coral holo. Again, amazing quality and formula. This is three thin coats, and no topcoat. 

The next color I have is an amazing nude holo! This color is totally perfect in all ways possoble. A nude holo is fairly difficult to make and this is awesome! Two coats and no topcoat. 

I have another custom from Ashlie up next. It is called "Unicorns at Night" a fun deep green / teal holo with blue flakies. It is so so pretty. Again, formula is awesome and I love the uniqueness of this color!  Two coats and no topcoat. 

The last color is probably my favorite so I saved the best for last! And it is "Cali Bombshell" and I will tell you what this is a total bombshell. So fantastic!! Here it is in all of its glory! Shine on my friends!! 2 coats and no topcoat. 

All in all I love this brand. I love her ideas. I love her causes. I love her colors and quality. 

Right now she is having a huge sale as well as her bottles were discontinued and so she needs to clear our for new bottles. I will post a second time to review her makeup!

Review - Dainty Digits Polish

Hey loves! Hope is well and bright in your world! 

Today I have two colors from Dainty Digits Polish! The owner / create is Anetress. I have known her for a while through the indie polish world and she is a great person. A very kindred soul, wise, and extremely professional. When she talks you listen, and when she makes a joke you laugh hard. Just a wonderful person all around. 
I bought two of her polishes from her as I try to buy and support other indies that I am able to meet and have a connection with. 

The first color is "Planetary Pearl" a great mauve / dusty rose holo filled color. I loved it! Formula is great! I did three thin coats, but you can totally do two. I just can't leave well enough alone. 
Look at that holo just gleamin in this soft and sweet color! 

The second color I have is "No Way!" Another awesome color. This one is slightly more shear so three thin coats will get you where you need to be. This is such an interesting color. Is it grey? Kinda. Is it green? Kinda. Is it black? Kinda. I think you get the point. Just a really cool color period! 
Again with the holo!! Yes yes yes!! 

Please go check out Anetress!

Review - Nvr Enuff Polish

Good evening my loves! I have a brand new indie polish line to share with you! Please welcome to the indie polish world - Nvr Enuff!! It is comprised of two really dope, super cool ladies Lynnae and Alix. I have "known" Lynnae virtually for quite some time through Instagram. She has been a huge supporter of my indie polish line as well. When she announced her line I was super excited. I do not know Alix but honestly any friend of Lynnae is a friend of mine :) 

These two have come with a great line! I ordered two colors when they released. I want more! 

The first I have is "Après-Midi". A pretty steel blue with lots of fun super fine holo glitter. It took three thin coats to reach opacity. I love this color! The first photo is under regular light. The second is with flash. So darn pretty!! 

This color is subtle but also not at the same time. The holo glitter is perfect. Formula is wonderful. 

The second color I have is called "Moonstone" a reflective topper! It goes great over any dark color. I did a deep dark blue and put two thin coats over it. I was worries that just in normal light, walking around during the day that it would look a little off because if the grey flecks of reflective paint. I was wrong! I really liked the effect it gave during the day! It was so cool looking. Almost a texture effect but not - if that makes sense. Super cool for sure. You can do one coat for a little less effect as well. First photo is outside. Second is with flash. I could quite capture the reflective properties but it is for sure there! 

All in all I think this initial launch is wonderful! I can't wait to get more! The theme was light - I think they captured and took it heart. It is perfect. Please check them out!

Review - Born Pretty Store Water Decals

Hey nail lovies! What's shakin?

Born Pretty Store sent me a few things to review - 3 different water decals and some cute acrylic bows! 

Today I am going to try one of the water decals - the cool bright psychedelic looking ones! I have never tried water decals before so bear with me friends! 
Here are the colors I chose (not picutred is white) 
I wanted to choose colors that are in the design as well as different enough to see if it made any difference to the decals once applied. I painted each nail a different color and waited for then to fully dry. This first time I am not applying a top coat to the colors before applying the decals. The next one I review I will apply before the decals. 
Ok side note my cuticles look like dry death but I am not done with the mani and I haven't oiled and moisturizer today! Don't judge - ok you can a little bit but the finished product will be soft and smooth 😃

So the instructions are pretty basic:
- Clean your fingernails and apply a base color, let base color dry
- Remove the protective film and cut out the desired pattern. 
- Put the pattern in water for 10-20 seconds 
- Moisten the fingernail and stick the pattern into position
- Sop up the extra water with a paper towel 
- Seal with top coat 

Ok here goes nothing! 
And I will say I did it wrong on the first go around! You are supposed to peel the backing off and then place the decal. This is not like a temporary tattoo.
I peeled off and it was white with the design face down! Oops! Here we are again. Onto the next nail! 
 Ok much better! They just slide right off the backing onto your finger and you can tweezers, or nippers or like I did an orange stick. 
The decals are very pliable, and easy to work with once they slide off the backing. You don't have to rush and as long as your base color is dry you can even move it around. Very cool! I went ahead and added some dots after the finished product. 

I really like the finished product. The base color doesn't matter to the decal whatsoever. That is definately nice because the color you see is going to be the color on the nail. This watermarble like pattern is super fun and there are additional designs in the paper so many more manis can be done. The directions lacked where you are supposed to take the back off yourself then place the decal. But once I figured out it was easy from there. They do not dry or garden up quickly while removing and placing on the nail with an orange stick which I also loved. It was nice to be able to manipulate it. If they aren't completely smoothed out over your nail or have slight wrinkles the top coat smooths that out.m evenly and quickly. I can't wait to try my other decals now! 

You can get these and many other products at and you can use code NNG10 for 10% off your order!! 
Check Out the Born Pretty Store now!

Review - CDB Nail Lacquer

Happy Sunday dolls! You still staying cool? It still going to be 108 degrees today and the rest of the week! 

Today I have some swatches from CDB Lacquer and the lovely Cheyenne! She is such a gem! First, her nail art and swatches are to die for and like myself pulls double duty, does blogging / reviews and creates her own line as well she has swatched for me quite a few times and always does a fantastic job! 

She recently released the "Vivid Vixens" Collection and I am love with these colors. All bright, colorful and sparkly! I chose three of them to purchase and I now need them all! 

First up is "Spirited" this is my favorite of the bunch and is so versatile. This silver goes on so smooth and is so pretty! The first photo is three thin coats no undie. The second shows one coat over the purple which is China Glaze "Gothic Lolita". This is such a versatile color. I can't wait to put it over black, pink, blue any color really! But on it's own as well is to die for! 

The second color I have to share with you is "Attitude" a pretty and light colored sparkly teal. First photo is three thin coats. The second photo is over China Glaze "Turned Up Turquoise" again, the formula is soft and smooth. Not thick at all. I love this shade. I want to be on a beach wearing this color. And I want to try this over a black or darker blue as well. 

The third color from the collection I tried is "Fierce" a fun fiery red. Again first photo is thre thin coats and the second is over Orly "Retro Red" I love this color as well. It has the same great sparkle and same great formula as the others from this collection. This color is something I want to wear when I am out for an evening with my girls and enjoying a drink with an umbrella in it on some bar patio or a beach (but I can't get to a beach). 

For the Vivid Vixen Collection - I want them all! There is a green, orange and yellow that are awesome too! These colors are ao very versatile as you can see by my swatches and using them over like color hues. I can't wait to try them over something like black or darker hues. These colors and her formula are amazing! 

The next color I have is "Un-Birthday Party" a fun bubble gum pink with a bunc if fun and bright different shaped glitter. I seriously think this is such a fun polish. It is reminiscent of childhood to me. Just the way the pink and glitters work together. It's probably what the inside brain looked like at the age of 8! I did not have to dig for glitters or do a lot of rolling. I got glitter at every dip. This is not goopy and thick like some glitter bombs can be which I appreciated. That always make me shy away a bit but I had to have this color! 

CDB Lacquer is a great brand with great colors! I would recommend any if her colors. The Vivid Vixens rock and she has some awesome glitters too!! Check her out at her shop on Storenvy and her Instgram @cdblacquer

Review - Goombay Gal Nail Lacquer

Happy weekend to all my nail loves! How has your week been? It has been hot hot hot here! And this dang heat isn't going anywhere either. Up to 110 next week and nothing under 100. I hope you all are staying cool!

I have 5 wonderful samples that were sent to me by quite possibly one of my favorite people, Taylor. Her and I have been nail mail buddies for close to a year now and I adore her! She has worked her booty off and became a certified nail tech and launched her own polish line all at the same time. I am super proud of her!

Ok I had a difficult time picking my favorite but one of them is definitely Bahamian Breeze. It is a thermal, sky blue polish, with teeny, super fine blue glitter throughout. I am totally in love with how subtle the change is and how it reminds me of summer sky. It has a wonderful formula, not thick or goopy, and the glitters do not sink.
Bahamian Breeze Cold
Bahamian Breeze Warm

Here is the comparison shot between the cold and warm state. Again so subtle, and gentle. An amazing thermal!

I really enjoyed this polish color. I have nothing bad to say about it. It is a great color for anyone! Below is my full mani out in the great sun. This is three thin coats, and no top coat.

The next up is Holy Holo, which is also a thermal!! Yay! A great violet / lavendar to silver thermal shift. Also a wonderful formula! This polish is seriously so much fun! No issues applying, went on smooth and easy. This is almost a one coater ladies! Seriously! I just added a second thin coat for grins because I loved applying this color so much!

Holy Holo Cold                                                                                                        Holy Holo Warm
So again this thermal is so subtle and makes a great polish! Here it is out of focus a bit so you can see all the yummy that this polish is
And here is my mani from and because it is again over 100 here it was all silver! So pretty! 

The next color I have to show off is "Red Red Wine" This is a beautiful burgundy color with a very light shimmer to it. I think this color is very sophisticated and classic. A great color for a date night with your man someplace fancy with a nice glass of red wine in your hand! Again, great formula, not streaky, goopy or thick. I did have an issue with the opacity and thought it could use more pigment. I talked to Taylor about it and she did say that this has been reformulated and I saw another photo on her IG and it was just as pretty. 

Here is my swatch and as you can see you can see my nail line but again, still a lovely color. This was 4 thin coats. 

The next one I have to show you is a pretty special one! It was named after Amber P Riley from the hit FOX Show "Glee"!!! You are asking my why right now aren't you? Ok well here is the story, Taylor did Amber's nails at the salon she works at! Amber even used her polishes and gave her a super sweet shout out on her IG page! So Taylor decided to make a polish in her honor and it is another one of my favorites!! 

It is packed with super fine, and sparkly glitter! In all of my favorite colors too! Purple, Blue and Silver. This is so jammed packed that as you can see from my photo below it really doesn't even need an undie color! I love this so much! It is fun, whimsical and a delight to stare at!! 

I used a deep dark blue from China Glaze as my undie color and then nothing on my ring finger. Oh my! I am in love with this polish! It is not thick or clumpy and goes on like a dream!! 

I will have the 5th color up for you in a little bit :) and make an edit to the post. 

Please go check out Taylor on Instagram and her shop!!
