I’ve seen the Venique brand for awhile now at Cosmoprof, but it wasn’t until I saw the mini packs that it seemed worth it to give it a shot. I bought a four pack of their summer collection, Desire to be Desired. My kit (called Colors of Desire) contained Havanah Glam, Pump up the Jam, Side Walk Surfer and Galoshes Glow. Now let me tell you…these minis are MINIs. No full size brush here. Lots of effort to polish your nails with this trial size, but I managed.
Today I have a swatch of Pump up the Jam, a pretty pinky pink. I’m not sure why I don’t have more pinks like this. They look nice on me and I can wear them to work, which is even better. Pump up the Jam went on smooth. I immediately noticed a cool iridescence about it…a lavendar shimmer in some light. I really like it. I’d call it a sophisticated bubble gum pink!
In direct indoor light, you can see some more of that shimmer. It’s very unexpected and pretty.
Hopefully, the brush size and quality in the full bottles is up to par because the formula and color was great. I wore this mani for three day of typing with very little tip wear.
