Daily Hues Nail Lacquer Online Shop Has MOVED

Friends, Customers, Nail Society,

I have moved my online shop from Etsy to Storenvy. If you go to my Etsy shop you will find it on "Vacation Mode" with the announcement that I have moved. My Storenvy site is up and running, open for business. You will see new photos to better show off all the wonderful colors I have created for you. My Instagram account (@nailartjenn and @dailyhuesnaillacquer) bios have also been updated and will take you to the Storenvy site.

The website is

I have made these changes to better serve you. I want to make the checkout process as seamless as possible. It will allow me to save money on fees which in turn allows me to pass that savings on to you in the future. I will be able to have more sales (a few polishes have been added to the sale section) and I will be able to interact more with everyone on Storenvy.

I truly appreciate your patience and support while this transition is happening. I am also creating new and exciting colors and effects to be released soon. Make sure you check on my Instagram page (@dailyhuesnaillacquer) for previews and release dates. Some will be available for preorder at a discount too!

I want to make my brand something you as a customer are proud to wear, and show off. I want to continue to provide the highest level of service to you while having fun doing it. I have a strong, loving passion for what I do and I hope that you as the customer and friend see that.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

Gwen For OPI - OPI Review

YAY! I have been looking forward to this line ever since I heard it was being released. I still have not picked up all the colors but I am not sure if I want the deep red "I sing in color" and the glitter "In true Stefani fashion"
I was able to get my hands on the awesome crème pink "Hey Baby" and the two satins "Love.Angel.Music.Baby" and "4 In The Morning" I also picked up the super cool "Push and Shove"

I picked up "Love.Angel.Music.Baby" and "Push and Shove" in December before the actual release which was odd, at my local JCPenny salon. I had heard the release wasn't until January. I hadn't seen any of my Instagram friends with it yet and I knew it was going to be popular. Oops on JCP but yay me!

I really enjoyed "Love.Angel.Music.Baby" it is what OPI calls a satin finish and it tells you right on the cap do not add top coat. It reminds me of liquid sand but definitely with little to texture it is just smooth and matte. It is a pretty gold hue with a little sparkle. It goes on so easy, and I think because of the formula dries extremely fast. 

I also had to try "Push and Shove" right away. I wanted to see how metallic this would really be. I have been looking for a metallic nail polish on and off so I was really excited to see this. It comes with a special BASE coat. I did not apply a regular base coat to my nails and the one that came with it in fear I would mess up the formula somehow. I let that dry almost completely and then I applied the silver. It goes on streaky, and takes a few strokes to get it to look straight. If you have lots lines in your nails like I do it picks them all up. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to apply this differently but after two or three coats depending on how it went on I got this to look pretty even. I definitely wouldn't do a full mani again because of how it shows the imperfections in my nails (gasp!) I ended up using it again as an accent nail in a Seahawks mani that weekend though. I do really like the idea, and the product, you just need to have patience when applying

Last weekend I picked up "Hey Baby" and "4 In The Morning".
I am not the biggest of fans of pink and this one seemed extra pink. But I wanted to check it out, broaden my horizons, be flexible. This polish goes on so smooth and easy. And it really is a fun color. I got quite a few compliments on my mani when I was out running errands. It is a show stopper for sure.

"4 In The Morning" is the other satin in the collection. It is black in the bottle and when applied it goes on just as easy and smooth as "Love.Angel.Music.Baby". When dry it dries to almost a chalkboard look and has some very fine silver specks in it. Definitely a fun one as one. I used that as an accent nail with my "Hey Baby". I really love pink and black together.

I still want to get my hands on the special edition color with the nail art and Swarovski elements. If I get it I will also review that!

Enjoy! Go get you some Gwen for OPI!

I am on Social Media - Come find me!

I have started to become a social media junkie. I want to get my polish line out to as many people as possible because I am so passionate about it. I want to share it with the world!

I have many outlets now that you can find information on just about anything nail related that I do. I have the polish line and my nail art.

Instagram (Times 3 - Crazy me!)

@dailyhuesnaillacquer - Everything related to my Polish Line included swatches from myselg and others, designs, updates etc.

@nailartjenn - All my nail designs and art that I do. I do have some polish line related posts as I am trying to build up my base on @dailyhuesnaillacquer you will see some of the same posts.

@nailartjenndestash - This is where I have been putting up some of the polish I have not used or just used one time. I have three full polish racks and I refuse to buy a forth (for now) so I have the colors, brands, and prices all including shipping information up on each photo

@nailartjenn - This is mostly a mashup of polish line and nail design. Short and sweet, ya know 140 or less. If it too brief to your liking, Instagram, Facebook and this lovely thing called a blog which you are currently reading will have more and more!

Facebook - or search for Daily Hues Nail Lacquer. This is my newest addition and I am trying to remember to place information here as well. Again, you can find swatches, and additional information, more than Twitter and IG.

I hope this helps you all out! I appreciate the support and love always!


"Smitten Kitten" Valentines Day Collection - Available 1/14

Ladies! *Shreek* I am so excited to announce the launch of Daily Hues Nail Lacquer Valentines Day line "Smitten Kitten"

This line is all about love, crushes, joy and happiness. I have created SIX wonderful colors for you to enjoy - including a limited edition HOLO that is super packed with all the holo a girl could ever want or need!

I have specifically named these beauties with names that have the meaning of LOVE <3 or a variation of the word.

First up, I want to introduce you to "Abby". This one holds a very special place in my heart. I named it and designed it after my daughter Abby. She LOVES ladybugs so that is why she is a rich, bright red, with black glitters throughout to represent a ladybug. I made this one and showed to her, without telling her it was going to be her namesake. She said, "It looks like a ladybug!" I told her I was going to name it Abby, and her eyes lit up, gave me a wonderful hug and said "Thank you!" Totally worth it :)
I wanted to continue the good feeling of doing this so 10% of "Abby" proceeds will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Cherice - Dear One, Darling
She is so dear! A pretty sparkling and dazzling white. A wonderful, go to glitter topper just to add that extra sparkle! Looks wonderful all alone for a subtle sparkle, or over white, black, or pink! 

Mina - Love
Oh glitter how I love thee! Say hello to the fierce and firey Mina. Packed with red square glitter and a hint of red spectraflair to add some spice to your digits. Looks great over black and red. 

Vida - Dearly Loved
She may be dark but she is the meaning of her name! Sometimes it is hard to love, and give your love but there is always those select few who truly know who you are and you mean the world to them. You are Dearly Loved

Aiko - Child of Love
Happy holo my friends! Aiko is my definately my child of love. This pretty and delicated pinkish purple has all the holographic qualities you want! LIMITED EDITION, once she is gone, there will be no more. 

Melina - Peoples Love
Yay for bright pink, happy glitters. She will definately be working for the people when you throw her on your fingers! Looks great over light blue, pink, and black! The people will love them! Hot pink bars, white hex, blue hex, and black hex throughout.

For more swatches please go directly to my Etsy store or my Instagram @dailyhuesnaillacquer

New colors on the way!!

As many of you know I have been on business travel for the past two months for my "real job". While I have been out and about, it has truly benefitted me and my creative energy regarding colors, blends, and what to make with my polish line. I know I have been MIA but I feel like this will help in the long run. It will help you as a customer because you are going to get amazing polish like you have never seen from me. All I want to do is go home and start mixing and experimenting for you. 
I thank you for your patience while I have been away for so long right after I launched the line. The best is yet to come!!

Daily Hues Nail Lacquer - The Holographic Collection

Recently, I launched my holographic collection full of bright jewel tones with plenty of holographic goodness packed in. I just wanted to take a moment to discuss why you may not see as much holographic qualities as you may see in other brands like the very popular Color Club Holo line. I love that line and I own them all! 

First things first, I am not knocking or degrading any line that carries holo. Mine is different and not any better or any worse than those out there. I just wanted to let you know why my mine is different and why it does stand out. I love that holographic is such a happening trend. It is so much fun and with how many different qualities that holographic polish provides how could you not fall in love with it!?

With the holographic collection that I created, I used deep jewel tones that I didn't want to take away from. The colors are so magical and they are fit for a queen! If you aren't a queen I understand (me either) but these colors make me feel like it.  With the jewel tones wanted to add some extra goodness so duh, holo! I did not jam pack the polishes with holo like the above referenced Color Club line, the colors are also very light in comparison to the line that I created. The qualities that are provided in holographic nail polish still exist very much in my collection. The colors shift from darker to lighter in different lights, natural lights, camera with flash and also camera without. I hope this helps you understand why my holographic collection is different and why when you look at "just pictures" you may not see what you are used to seeing.

The top photo shows "Selina" in a lower light no flash, in a light box, the bottom photo shows with flash and you can still see the holographic properties, along with the color of blue that is totally different.

The collection is below:

This is "Emerson"

This is "Selina"

This is "Bellatrix"

This is "Cadence"
This is "Celia"
