Peace, Love & Polish from Dr.’s Remedy

Dr.s Remedy CHEERFUL Cherry and POISED Pink Champagne

Dr.’s Remedy has created a wonderful small collection of polishes that is especially beautiful for fall. If you don’t know Dr.’s Remedy it’s a brand developed by podiatrists Dr. Adam Cirlincione and Dr. William Spielfogel. They wanted to help their patients with a vegan friendly, organic line. They’ve succeeded with over 40 gorgeous shades.

Dr.’s Remedy uses a blend of biotin, tea-tree oil, garlic bulb extract, lavender, wheat protein and vitamins C and E. Even though these ingredients sound like they’d be a little stinky, be assured they aren’t. But they are free of formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, and DBP.

Now let’s enjoy the new beautiful shades that have been created to lift your spirits.

Let’s start by being cheerful with Cheerful Cherry ($17).

Dr.s Remedy CHEERFUL Cherry

This beauty is a cream shade but with a little bit of shimmer in it. You’ll basically see that in natural bright sunlight. This applied like a dream, the second coat filled it in perfectly giving it a bold and juicy look.

I enjoyed wearing this shade since it isn’t a Christmas red, it’s a more rose like shade that’s upbeat for this weather.

POISED is a Pink Champagne shade that is called a cream but it’s actually a soft metallic. Dr.’s Remedy describes this a a soft shimmering pink champagne that gives a Midas touch. I find it to be a bit of a chameleon depending on the light.

This is a softer polish and needs drying time. Don’t be in a rush after applying it or you’ll end up with smudges like I did.

Poised Pink Champagne took a while for me to appreciate. Normally I love the look of a polish instantly but I wasn’t sure at first if this was the right shade for my cool toned skin. But by the end of the first day I knew it was a winner, as the days went on I realized it gave a warm glow that I really liked.

If you are looking for an 8 Free polish brand that is actually good for your tips and toes then look no further than Dr.’s Remedy. It’s the only brand I’m comfortable wearing on my toes since I find my tootsies can be susceptible to fungus. But these have never caused a problem for me.  Be cheerful and poised with the latest from Dr.’s Remedy.  —  Marcia

Nail polish greats of 2016

It’s very difficult for me to narrow down my favorite polishes of the year but since I adore polish and want to be an accomplished nail painter at some time in my life I decided to share half a dozen of my favorites. Leaving something out doesn’t mean I love it any less, just that I didn’t have room for it!

SPARITUAL GOLD in RISING SPIRIT – The bottle belies the beauty within. A subtle but stunning gold that wears magnificently and even repels smudges!

KBSHIMMER FALL 2016 POLISHES make it impossible to choose just one. I love every single one of these. KBShimmer is an astonishing nail company and a brand you shouldn’t miss. I’m sharing The Best Mum Ever as my choice but it was hard to pick. If Oh My Ganache had photographed better that’s what I’d have shown you.

LAUREN B ROSE BOWL stole my heart with its metallic red. I love all the Lauren B polishes I’ve tried but this takes me back to my all time favorite: cool toned red!

Speaking of how much I love red I’ve chosen Dr.’S REMEDY REVIVE RUBY RED. This shimmer infused crimson polish is made by a podiatrist: “Dr.’s Remedy is the first nail polish that received approval from the American Podiatric Medical Association. It doesn’t contain any harmful ingredients likeFormaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Toluene, Phthalates, Parabens, or camphor. It’s even recommended as a post treatment follow-up to nail fungus and ingrown nails. To top it off it comes in 30 beautiful shades.”

I’ll cheat and throw in another Dr.S Remedy polish that is so spring perfect that it makes me long for the sun: BOUNTIFUL BLUE.

I needed to add a pink because I’m a pink girl at heart. Unfortunately one of my favorite pink shades was Limited Edition but you never know if it’s still available. SALLY HANSEN MIRACLE GEL FLOWER CROWN is one of the best I wore this year. It’s described as a pearlescent petal pink which is a perfect description.

Since I prefer a polish that is holographic it’s easy to understand why KBShimmer makes another appearance on this list. This time it’s ALONG FOR THE TIDE from Summer 2016. I see shifts from pink to violet and from blue to purple.

Last is from Trust Fund Beauty, another brand that I’ve loved the polishes from. The one that stands out most to me is DIRTY THOUGHTS (although the pink Do U Know Who My Father Is could be the perfect cream color).

Dr.’s Remedy Enriched Nail Polish – simply stunning

drs-remedy-all-4

Last year Beauty Info Zone was introduced to a vegan nail polish brand that we absolutely loved: Dr.’s REMEDY Enriched Nail Polish. It may have been a year ago but we never forgot the brand and when they offered to send along some polishes for us to test, we jumped at the chance.

Dr.’s REMEDY Enriched Nail Polish was developed by two podiatrists upon realizing how many of their patients had dry brittle toe nails. Since that problem also extends to hand nails they created a brand with ingredients that you won’t find in other brands. All polishes and treatments are enriched with Garlic Bulb Extract, Tea Tree Oil, Wheat Protein and Vitamins C and E.

MARCIA is crazy about BOUNTIFUL BLUE and REVIVE RUBY RED

The two nail polishes I have are ones that are perfect colors for me. They stood out to me on the Dr.’s Remedy website but are even more gorgeous in person.

Revive Ruby Red is described as a shimmer infused crimson. Not only is it filled with teeny shimmer particles but it’s a gorgeous metallic ruby shade that is perfect year round. I wore this as my first fall polish and plan to wear it again in the colder months. It will make an outstanding pedicure shade as well.

My other shade is just as beautiful and one I wore this past August and will certainly wear again. BOUNTIFUL BLUE is the kind of blue that I adore and that suits my cool toned hands well. It’s described as a tranquil, cornflower blue flecked with a subtle hint of shimmer. I love this kind of almost hidden shimmer that is noticeable in sunlight and in brighter lights but doesn’t glare at you.

Both of these polishes look outstanding and wear magnificently. They last on me 7 to 8 days without a chip in sight. We have a code for 10% off on the Dr.’s Remedy website: BLOG16. You can use it on any of their polishes so let’s see what Lisa wore.

LISA is crazy about PLAYFUL PINK and LOVEABLE LAVENDER

Marcia always goes for the reds and the blues, and I always go for the pinks and the pastels! I am really crazy about these two colors from Dr.’s Remedy. They are simply stunning.

Dr.'s Remedy Loveable Lavender and Playful Pink

Dr.’s Remedy Loveable Lavender and Playful Pink

Loveable Lavender is a gorgeous creamy pastel that is different from most cream pastels – it applies like a dream! Usually cream pastels are tricky. They can go on streaky and it is very tough to get a perfect finish. This one is sooo easy and the light pinky/purple is really beautiful.

Dr.'s Remedy Playful Pink and Loveable Lavender

Playful Pink is a rosy pink with a soft silvery shimmer. It’s not too bright, but it’s feminine and pretty and it just makes me happy. I love lighter colors for my nails and Playful Pink is a wonderful option for a classic pink manicure with just a bit of bling.

Last we want to tell you about Dr.’s Remedy #PaintMePink campaign. Each year Dr.’s Remedy donates to cancer foundations and one way is through their polishes. This year’s campaign: “In support of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Dr.’s REMEDY has partnered with Mattia Joyce Castellano, sister to the late beauty influencer Talia Joy, makeup artist and Vice President of Talia’s Legacy Children’s Cancer Foundation. As part of the collaboration, a rich, shimmery shade of Dr.’s REMEDY gold lacquer has been renamed “Cure Gold”, with ten percent of the proceeds donated to the foundation.”

This year they’ve chosen their GLEE nail polish to donate to this cause:drs-remedy-cure-gold

Not only are we thrilled with these polishes but we are excited to introduce you to a way to turn your beauty into gold for others who suffer.

Remedy Nail Care aka Dr.’s Remedy Enriched Nail Care is a brand of polishes that has been developed by two podiatrists. Most male podiatrists wouldn’t necessarily be thinking about women’s polish colors, but Dr. Adam Cirlincione and Dr. William Spielfogel were concerned about dry, brittle discolored nails. By formulating products that contain ingredients that are good for nails they knew they’d see fewer patients with those problems which could lead to even more podiatric problems. Of course once you create a line of polishes that have 30 beautiful shades, we women want them for nails and toes.

What’s unique about Dr.’s Remedy polishes are the ingredients that you won’t find in other brands. All polishes and treatments are enriched with Garlic Bulb Extract, Tea Tree Oil, Wheat Protein and Vitamins C and E.

We were sent the two of the three shades that Dr.’s Remedy have chosen in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Promising Pink and Purity Pink. The sale of these two, along with Peaceful Pink Coral, will bring donations of 10% of sales to Living Beyond Breast Cancer. This collection, THE POWER OF PINK, was picked to promote positivity, serenity and encouragement and to empower those fighting Breast Cancer.

MARCIA WEARS PROMISING PINK

Dr.'s Remedy Promising Pink

Dr.’s Remedy Promising Pink

PROMISING PINK has the perfect name. It’s a petal pink that’s opaque in two coats and is said to suit everyone while it neutralizes any yellow tones on your nail base. This is a cream polish that felt like a breath of fresh air when I was wearing it. I’m so used to wearing darker shades that I tend to ignore a cleansing color like Promising Pink. Yet I know that this beautiful shade is what most women feel comfortable wearing.

While Promising Pink was opaque in two coats, next time I wear it I want to use three in order to make the color a little deeper and to eliminate any sign of visible nail line. I love that this is a vegan line that contains no additives. Looking at the colors above makes me want to investigate Dr.’s Remedy a whole lot more.

LISA WEARS PURITY PINK

PURITY PINK is the definition of the perfect nude nail.  It’s described as a peachy neutral sheer classic shade – not much pink here, it’s definitely more on the peach side.

I am very partial to lighter shades on my tips and Purity Pink is exactly what I want for a classic nude manicure. It is quite sheer so I went with three thin coats for this photo. The creamy, milky peach is feminine and understated. It’s the shade to wear when you don’t want your hands to scream NAILS!! but you do want them to look pretty and clean.

Whichever of these three you wear, remember that you are benefiting both yourself and women who need the help to empower themselves after living with breast cancer.
