My Favorite Venique ~ Polish of the Month

Posted on: September 1, 2013

Kitten Heel Slides from Venique is truly one of my most favorite polishes to wear. It is a pink nail polish with a golden shimmer and a bit of a purple-ish duo chromeness to it. It is really pretty and it is so darn hard to show on camera.
Venique is theNail Polish of the Month for September and I realize a lot of you probably haven’t heard of this brand. Kitten Heel Slides was sent to me by one of my You Tube friends April, who is a nail technician. This was in the fall of 2011, when Venique launched. They started with a core line up of 78 colors and have added to it and have limited editions just like any other nail polish company. The difference is you need to purchase this polish through a salon, CosmoProf (for professional technicians) or go to Amazon and eBay. You cannot go to a store, unless you’re licensed, and buy it. It sells normally for $7 and it is worth every bit of the $7.

This polish dries like glass and if you use their top coat it will last for up to 10 days and longer. The top coat has an ingredient called Sil-Tek which expands and contracts with your nails. As you do your daily business your nails expand and contract. When they are dry they are contracted and when they are wet they expand. Even just washing your hands will cause your nails to expand. That is why some nail polishes last better on some and not on others. We all expand and contract differently. (I know I’d like a little less expanding in certain areas of my body but that’s another story).
Venique is a 5-FREE polish and is considered in California as an organic polish. As the month goes on I’m excited to show you some of my favorite Venique nail polishes. They are a great polish, I just wish they were more accessible .

Kitten Heel Slides was my first Venique polish and I’ve all but used up the bottle. The formula is still great and like I said, it dries like glass. I love this color because it looks different in different lights. All the Venique polishes have names that have something to do with shoes. When Venique first started they said every woman’s best accessories are her nails and her shoes. I don’t know if I agree with that statement but they have some odd names to keep the shoe theme going. If a Venique polish is named without reference to a shoe then that particular polish is from a limited edition collection.
I promise I won’t repeat all these particulars every Monday when I show my Polish of theMonth but I am excited for you to get to know this polish and hopefully try it out. It’s an awesome polish. April, my friend, thanks again for sending this one to me and the one you sent to my Mom was loved just as much by her. Mwahhh 😘

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by!

I did not know that part about expanding-contracting of the nail. Now it makes sense. Thank you for the information.
Also, this is a very beautiful colour. I think in your last photo I can see not only the golden shimmer but the way it turns darker purple. Yummy!


Yes, it is such a beautiful color. 🙂

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
