Daily Hues Nail Lacquer Summer in Seattle Collection Part 1: Places to See Swatch and Review

**Press Samples**
Daily Hues Nail Lacquer is inviting us into her world for her next collection. A Washington state based company, she used to live in Seattle, and decided to draw inspiration from the city. She ended up getting so much inspiration for her Summer in Seattle Collection that she split it into two parts. Part 1 is Places to See. It will be released tomorrow, and I have swatches and my review for you all today. Part 2 is Things to Do, and those will be released at a later date. For now, let's jump into Summer in Seattle Part 1: Places to See.
**WARNING PICTURE HEAVY**
It's Pike Not Pikes
It's Pike Not pikes is described as "a bright red jelly with holo flakes".
Shown is three thin coats of It's Pike Not Pikes with top coat.
It's Pike Not Pikes is such a fun representation of its inspiration. The bright red is the perfect shade to mimic the neon lights in the signs. The shards just add that bit of something extra. I had a small bit of difficulty getting them out, but then I realized after three coats it was going to be the perfect amount. Smooth formula and no issues with the flakes during application.
$8.50

It's a Siren, Not a Mermaid
It's a Siren, Not a Mermaid is described as "a Starbucks colored green thermal".
Shown is three thin coats of It's a Siren, Not a Mermaid with top coat without manipulation.
It's a Siren, Not a Mermaid is pretty much a thermal that shifts 3 different ways. In my pictures without manipulation, my tips are a darker shade and my nail is a lighter shade, but when placed in hot water it turns into a translucent green shade. Smooth application with zero issues, but three coats was definitely needed for full coverage.

ABC (Already Been Chewed)
ABC (Already Been Chewed) is described as "a glitter bomb full of neon dots".
Shown is one coat of ABC (Already Been Chewed) over It's a Siren, Not a Mermaid with top coat.
ABC (Already Been Chewed) was one of the ones I was really excited about. I love a good topper! Well, I wanted to showcase it, but wanted to keep it in the collection, You all know that I like to do unconventional pairings every once in a while...why not toss neon glitter over a Starbucks green?! I thought this one was so much fun! I thought it was going to have a difficult application, but I was happily wrong! You get a lot of glitter out so move them about. You can really put as little or as much glitter as you want on the nail.
$8.50

Smashed Guitar
Smashed Guitar is described as "a purple duochrome with hints of orange and red, as well as purple/orange UCC flakies".
shown is three thin coats of Smashed Guitar with top coat.
Smashed Guitar is full of gorgeous flakies! Perfect formula and application, zero issues. This polish is a perfect representation of its inspiration. The color, the shifts, using the flakies for the shattered effect. I desperately want someone to take a picture of the bottle next to the building. It is stunning!

Zeniful
Zeniful is described as "a lime green linear holo".
Shown is two coats of Zeniful with top coat.
Zeniful is exactly what the name says...full of zen. I felt so relaxed as I was using this. Soft greens usually have that effect on me. My bedroom is even painted a soft green called "Lemon Verbena". I knew I was going to love this one. The color is a fun and bright shade. Very cheerful. The holo adds the perfect shimmer to it. I tried to take direct light shots, but the green over powered the holo and it wouldn't pop. Those of you who are in the sun a lot will definitely see that holo pop out. It almost seems like there is a hint of gold shimmer in there as well.
$9.75

1962 Worlds Fair
1962 Worlds Fair is described as "a full coverage linear holo with pink flashes".
Shown is three thin coats of 1962 Worlds Fair with top coat.
1962 Worlds Fair is definitely the star of this collection. How can it not be? The first thing you think about when you think Seattle is the Space Needle. A beautiful shade of silvery white, this polish is flawless. The pink shimmer is the crowning glory of this beauty. Easily opaque after three thin coats, but I don't think it is opaque enough to stamp with. However, if you try, tag me! I want to see.
