Daisy Duo Gel Polish Swatches
I have a few Daisy gel polish swatches today. These Daisy Duo sets come with a gel polish and a matching regular nail polish (RNP), and they can be purchased at Esther’s Nail Center. I selected three colors that I thought would be fun for spring, which is wishful thinking since we’re currently buried under a foot or more of snow here! I gave all of the colors a really good shake with my Robart before applying them. These aren’t brand new shades in the Daisy line, so I wanted to make sure they were well mixed. This is always a good idea for the best application results.
First Impression is a very pale lavender shade. I applied three coats in this swatch because it still seemed a little spotty after two coats. This color didn’t match up completely with the accompanying RNP – it’s more pale in comparison. The RNP version has more of a lavender tone, which I like a little better and was hoping for with the gel. It’s still a lovely shade though.
Fiery Flamingo is a really medium-to-dark pink shade. This one is really fun for summer, and I love the name… it’s very suiting. It seemed a little thick and could have benefited from a couple drops of gel polish thinner to make the consistency a little smoother. This is also three coats.
Fuchsia Star is a dense glitter polish in a clear base. This swatch is only two coats. I was surprised at how great the coverage was because I have previously swatched some similar Daisy glitter gels and didn’t get much glitter out of the bottle. I think they probably needed a really good shake like this one got. The base was a little thick, but that helps with getting consistent glitter coverage on the nail. I love the color mix in the glitter – it’s primarily pink, but you can see little pops of blue and some holo glitters. It’s very sparkly in person!
This is just a quick side-by-side shot of the swatch sticks that compares the gel polish colors to the accompanying regular nail polish shades. The top two are pretty close, but the lavender shade is a bit off as I mentioned.
The Daisy Duo sets retail for $12.95 at Esther’s Nail Center. That’s a great price point for a two-in-one set! What do you think of these colors?
