Venique Side Walk Surfer ~ Color of Summer 2012

Posted on: July 18, 2012

I know that Pantone and Sephora have named tangerine as the color of 2012, but I think this blue-green turquoise has got to be the color of summer 2012.

This is a gorgeous turquoise, and like all Venique polishes, it goes on like glass and wears like iron. So pretty, to me this color screams summer, along with the other colors in the mini kit from Venique. I did this manicure about a week ago, from this same kit. The kit is called Color of Desire. ($14 on my Nail Polish for Sale page)


I do have a couple of other turquoise in my collection, but they are not even close to this color. I have Zoya Wednesday, and Color Club Age of Aquarious, Wednesday is much lighter and Age of Aquarious is more green. In fact I wore that for St. Patrick’s Day. It is that green.

All in all, I have enjoyed this mini kit from Venique. The colors are unique enough that I don’t have anything like them in my collection and they are spot on for this great summer of 2012. I have not used Havanah Glam as it is a copper-y, bronze-y color that usually doesn’t look so hot on my skin. Maybe as the summer goes on and I get darker, I might try it.
I know that Butter London, Venique and Zoya all follow my blog. Thank You for that. I would like to make a suggestion for the mini kits you guys sell. Would you please include a full size brush? I like the mini kits. I think they are a great way to try a polish, especially I think they are great for trendy colors, but I would freakin love them if you included a full size brush. I don’t think I have giant nails, I know they are bigger than my Mom’s, but she is a little bitty person. I am not. If you included a full size brush I could clean it with polish remover after using, if people don’t want it, they don’t have to use it. But I for one, think your sales would go up, if you included the full size brush. I cannot stand the little, teeny, tiny brushes. That has kept me from buying more than one mini set. OPI, cough, cough.

    Thank for stopping by. 💅

Agreed. Cough cough. On the OPI comment. Lol. Also LOVE the Venique!!! We just ordered the full size collection for the salon, and the turquoise will be the 1st one that I use on myself! They have another one that I love in that color family! It’s late and I’m in bed and can’t think of it right now. Lol

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
