Dr.'s REMEDY Fall Fever Collection

Today I've got a brand to share that I've never tried before: Dr.'s REMEDY. Their fall collection consists of three colors: BALANCE Brick, DEFENSE Deep Red, and NOBLE Navy. (Capitalization as per the labels.)



I started my swatching with Balance.



I know it says Brick right there on the label, but it pulled a lot more red on me than the rusty orange color I think of as brick. No matter, it's a nice red that covered in three coats.



One of the selling points for this polish line is that it was created by two podiatrists with an eye toward making a healthy alternative to traditional nail polish. It's not just free of the Big 3 chemicals, it's enriched with stuff like tea tree oil.



Defense came next; it's described as deep red, and it certainly is. So deep it tends to look black in some lights. I used three coats of this one as well, though I probably could have done two if I'd made them thicker.





I saved my favorite of these colors for last: Noble. It's a navy blue, not as deep blue as Defense is deep red. I used two coats of this one.





These polishes are available at the Dr.'s REMEDY website for $17 per .5 oz. bottle. Right now through end of the day tomorrow, November 18th, they've got three of their holiday polishes on special for $14 a bottle (SERENE Silver Glitter, RESOLUTION Red Glitter, and ESSENTIAL Emerald Green) and you can get free shipping for orders over $50 if you call 1-877-323-NAIL to order and use the code HOLIDAY. (The three polishes are priced at $14 on the website as well, but I couldn't get the free shipping thing to work online.)

As I was getting ready to post this entry, the holiday collection arrived in the mail; I'm going to to my best to swatch those and share them tomorrow before the special pricing on three of them ends. Here's a bottle pic so you can see the lineup:



Because I'm going to send these along to Lucy, they don't get to stay in my stash, but I'm strongly considering getting my own bottle of Noble. You know I love blues.

The polishes shown in this entry were provided to me for free for review purposes. The content of the entry was not dictated by the provider.

  3. I really wish that Brick was more brick like in color!! I love me a nice brick red. But am totally digging the Navy and Deep Red-but $17each?? Not so sure I need them THAT bad. Maybe if they ever go on sale I'll try them-they sure are pretty though!!
