NOTD~ Venique Shh..Quiet!

Posted on: June 27, 2012

Shh..Quiet! Really? Really, that’s the name of this polish. I agree, I think it is a goofy name, but the polish is not goofy it is gorgeous!

20120627-152138.jpgToday was one of those days where I would put on a polish, take it off, put on another, take it off, over and over. Sounds like a stripper working on the day rent is due, but it’s just one of those days!

20120627-152445.jpgFor a while this morning I had on OPI Pompeii Purple. This is a beautiful, full on hot pink with purple duo-chrome, which we all know I’m crazy about that color. But, the problem was the dreaded VNL. Since I didn’t want to add more coats I put on this one.

20120627-152651.jpgAgain, a beautiful OPI called Skull and Glossbones. The problem with this one is it went on very streaky. So streaky in fact that even with Seche Vite top coat, the streaks still showed through. I always figure, when I’m having these kinds of days to go to the mattresses, so to speak.
Remember in You’ve Got Mail when she was asking him for advice, he said the answer is to always “go to the mattresses”. In honor of Nora Ephron, RIP, I went to the mattresses with one of my all time favorite colors.

20120627-153309.jpgThis is Wet n Wild Lavender Cream.. Pretty, isn’t it? Problem? When I put it on, and I did leave the house with this one on, I went too heavy. If I go too heavy on a polish I want to pick at it. It had to come off. Which leads us to Shh…Quiet! from Venique. Another one of my all time favorites from my all time favorite company Venique.

20120627-154134.jpgThis polish goes on like glass, and I love this color. It’s an odd color, maybe that’s why it’s got an odd name?
So, Shh…Quiet! is what I’ve landed on for the last time today. I think it is smooth enough, neutral enough that I will wear this for a few days! 😝 Ha! Famous last words!

Thanks so much for stopping by, don’t forget to check my page “Polish for Sale” I will update it right now, so it will be current. Thanks to everyone who has purchased from me, I really appreciate!

Wow that’s a lot of times to paint your nails! too bad Skull and Glossbones did not work out for you,I had no problems with it,luckily.The Shh Quiet is so nice on you though.


Yes, it’s one of those days. I should have mentioned that I started all this at 5 am and finished with the Shh..Quiet! Around 4. So it wasn’t all in one sitting. I love the Skull & Glossbknes, I think it will be a favorite! As always, thanks for stopping by and commenting, I love to read your comments.


Can you get Jessica polish near you?They apparently have Chanel dupes!


I haven’t seen any Jessica where I live, I have seen some comparisons where they had some close dupes, but I didn’t see and “dead on ” dupes. But I’ll keep looking, thanks for the suggestion! — Judi

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
