NOTD: Venique ~ Fall 2012

Posted on: September 3, 2012

20120903-113830.jpg Venique The Exotic Messenger is a new color for Venique Fall 2012. It is a dusty cream dark rose color. I say dark rose because it is not a light pink, and it is not a maroon, somewhere in between. I really like this color. πŸ’—

I came home to a package on my doorstep the other day and this is what was inside. It is a press packet, sent to me from Venique, for me to review. They also sent a brochure telling about the Sil-Tek technology that makes Venique different from other polishes. Venique is different, I’ve said before how much I love this brand. The finish is like glass. It is supposed to wear longer than a normal polish but we all know I don’t keep a polish on long enough to know the longevity of a polish. One thing I learned from this press kit, is the topcoat is what contains the Sil-Tek which allows flexing with polish. Also has added Diamond Dust to enhance shine and strength. The information provided by Venique says the polish is formulated with “a unique blend of ingredients allowing polish to naturally flex with the nail”. But, only the topcoat is indicated as containing the Sil-Tek. My point would be: if you want/need longevity from your polish then use the Venique topcoat.
I did polish my nails using the base coat and the topcoat. I must say I do like the base coat and the polish did seem to have a smoother finish, dried faster and seemed to me to be a nicer finish.

This is Mary Jane Pump, using both the base coat and topcoat. πŸ’—πŸ’—. Love this color!

On the nail wheel from left to right: Naked Sandal, Night Walker, Havanah Glam, Side Walk Surfer (My review & swatches), Pump Up the Jam (My review & swatches, Ga-Loshes Glow (you got it, my review & swatches) and The Exotic Messenger.
All beautiful colors, all very wearable, all on trend for Fall 2012.

I want to tell you about Venique’s Clear is the New Sexy. It is a topcoat that just gives the tiniest hint of sparkle. As you all know I do not like the glitter polishes, but I do like sparkle, so this is right up my alley. I love the sparkle it gives without being obnoxious, full on glitter. I hope you can see the sparkle in the above pic. It is hard to catch on camera.

This is Revlon Surf with 1 coat of Clear is the New Sexy. Again, so subtle but when the sun hits it, GORGEOUS! πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—. The only thing I don’t like is it does pool around the nail, no matter how thin of a coat, and when that happens I tend to “pick” at my nails. No beuno. 😑
🌟🌟🌟🌟 out of 5 stars goes to this collection of Venique polishes. I really love this brand, I love the glass like finish, I love the colors. I just wish it was more accessible as it is available only through salons and for licensed professionals at CosmoProf Stores. You can find it on Amazon.com. I have not looked on eBay, but I would imagine you could find this on eBay. I have a few bottles left for sale and 1 kit of Classic Khaki left, if interested just leave a comment.
This polish was sent to me by the company for my review and consideration. I was not paid to write this review, nor was I told what to write. I was not given any guidelines as to positive/negative review of this product. I appreciate Venique’s support of my little blog, however the opinion stated is completely,utterly my own

This is my beautiful girl Jilly. How much do I L-O-V-E my darling daughter? 😘. How big is the sky, how deep the ocean, you get my drift. She is the, besides the prettiest girl on the planet, the smartest, funniest most talented person I know. This picture of her makes me happy.πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

beautiful colors and daughter! πŸ˜€ I haven’t tried any Venique yet. The ones in the CosmoProf are all separated and look gross so I keep passing them by.


That’s too bad. I think you would really like it. The gals at my CosmoProf told me the Venique sells out as fast as they get it in. Which is good because I haven’t seen any separated. I know they sell fast because ifi see so etching I like and wait to get, when I go back it’s usually gone. I hope you try it someday, like I said, I think you would really like. πŸ™‚

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
