Venique Goes Hollywood Collection

Happy Tuesday everyone. I am off tomorrow so I’m really looking forward to sleeping in which means that I’ll be getting out of bed at 6 am. WOOOOOT! hahaha Do you even know how horrible it is to have to get up at 3:30 am? No? You’re lucky! I have been such a turd about getting up my posts in a timely manner, and I am finally catching up. Today I have the Venique Goes Hollywood Collection to share with you. Before I even get into it, I have to admit one thing: I don’t like metallics. I just don’t know what is about metallic finish polishes, but I just can’t appreciate them. I tried to put all my metallic prejudice aside before I started swatching this collection so let’s take a look at the polishes…

Venique Goes Hollywood

The formula for all of these polishes is identical so I’ll talk about that at the end. I also want to mention that I am missing one polish from this collection which is the silver metallic called Reels Of Fun.

 I didn’t think that I would be saying this, but I actually kind of liked these polishes. I don’t find the colors too unique, but they are pretty nonetheless if you like metallic finish polishes. To tell you the truth, I was scared that these would be as difficult to work with as the Essie Mirror Metallics, but the formula was rather easy to work with. However, the brush strokes….OY VEY! I could not find any way to work with these polishes that left me with a brush stroke-free result. Overall, if you like metallics, you should look into these. I haven’t tried using these for stamping but I hope they work!

    I like Down the Carpet, which I just realized is probably because it looks similar to the Butter London Fairy Lights that I wore a few weeks back.
    I can’t pick a favorite finish, but I am currently admiring glass fleck (because I am currently wearing a glass fleck). Such an “ooo shiny” effect and they usually clean up and wear nicely.

      I do love glass fleck but I think I’ll always be a creme finish girl. Uhhh…yeah, don’t say it. You know what I mean. 😛

    Hey Cynthia! Thanks for attempting to check out my blog! Thanks for your comments too! Shame the pictures don’t show up! D’oh! I have set up a WordPress blog too and that seems to be working ok-

    Cath Kidston nails are there for your perusal if you get time!

    Like “down the carpet” in these shades- but in general, I prefer matte, glossy shades over metallic I think!

    Hope you enjoyed your day off! 🙂

      That’s great. I’m going to do a lot of catching up on blogs this weekend so I’ll be sure to drop by. 🙂

    My first thought was- I bet they’re good for stamping!! I’m not big on metallics either, but I do like using them alongside cremes for the contrast. For what they are- these are quite pretty and yay for the nice formula!

      I’m totally going to have to try stamping with them and I think they will work great because they’re super thick feeling and really pigmented.

    I like this collection—just to look at. It sets the ambiance for the Academy Award presentation. I feel like pouring a bucketful of gold paint & call myself Oscar for one night only. How glamorous!

      Hahahaha! I’d like to see that. Speedos and all…I bet it would be like once of your foam parties.
