Talk About It - Dr.'s Remedy Enriched Nail Polish

I love anything that shimmers and shines as well as anything glitzy and glamorous – I have a feeling that I’m not alone so today is all about Dr.’s Remedy Enriched Nail Polish!

Let me start off by saying that there is no such thing as 100% natural nail polish, only smarter and safer formulations. Dr.’s Remedy is a safe and enriched nail polish that was created by two doctors who are both board certified podiatrists who care about their patients and the products they use. Both Dr. Adam Cirlincione and Dr. William Spielfogel are skilled surgeons who realized the top concern with their patients is brittle and discolored nails that is often associated with the harsh chemicals that can be found in commercial nail polish.

Dr. Cirlincione’s wife was pregnant and was advised against using hair dye, eating certain foods, and being exposed to harsh chemicals. This warning led the doctor to do some research on chemicals and toxins. Along with Dr. Spielfogel they created Dr.’s Remedy, which is 3 Free (formaldehyde, toluene, and DBP – which can cause some serious damage to ones health) and enriched with good for you ingredients like tea tree oil, garlic bulb extract, and wheat protein.

These enrichments help promote healthier and stronger nails and also provide anti-fungal properties so it won’t cause any damage. Their nail polish come in a wide variety of gorgeous shades and is safe enough for anyone and everyone; including those who are extremely sensitive to traditional nail polish or chemicals in general.

I got so lucky because I got to try out their new seasonal collection Jolly and Joy. The collection is made up of 5 amazingly lovely and flattering festive shades perfect for the holiday season, and beyond.

ESSENTIAL Emerald is one of my favorite nail polishes, ever! I don’t have anything like this shade and I just love the way it looks on my nails. It compliments my skin tone and applies like a dream. It wears well and I had no problem with chipping, although I only wore it for 2 days. This is such a gorgeous color that I can’t get enough of! They describe it as “a take on the classic tree-and-plant-inspired gem of a shade, with delicate glimmer and unparalleled amounts of glamour”.

RESOLUTION Red Glitter is my other favorite from the collection. This polish applies so well and looks great on the nails! The only drawback to this polish is the fact that glitter polishes are really difficult to remove, but everything else about this is perfect! It adds the perfect amount of glitter to the fingers without being too over the top. I feel like this polish would be appropriate for any situation because it’s almost a nude pinkish-red color. They describe it as “a red meets copper spin that’s sequin-look-alike laden with high shine and sparkle.

REVIVE Ruby Red is the most perfect red color that I’ve ever seen. It’s absolutely perfect for fall and winter, and I think it would make a wonderful statement on the toes. It’s deep yet feminine and pretty. It is described as “a shimmer-infused Wizard of Oz-inspired shade of crimson.

SERENE Silver Glitter is so special and unique. It changes color in different lights and makes the nails look fancy, sort of like a perfectly pretty disco ball. It wasn’t the best with my skin tone but that won’t keep me from rocking it because it’s so interesting! It’s described as “a seasonal sizzler like no other: shine, chic, totally unique in the metallic scene.”

PASSION Purple is last, but not least. It’s “a bombshell-boysenberry with subtle silver meshed throughout”. It’s not my favorite for fingernails but I have high hopes for how amazing it will look on my toes. This is my Mom’s favorite of the collection though and it looks amazing on her. For whatever reason I had the hardest time applying this one. Don’t get me wrong – it was still easy, just not as smooth as the others.

These nail polishes are fabulous, right? They’re a little expensive at $17 each but I think they are totally worth it. I’ve never seen such lovely shades before. If you were only going to get one I would highly recommend either Resolution Red or Essential Emerald.
