The Dr. is In!

I have a review today of a really different nail lacquer line, the birth-child of 2 New York based podiatrists, Dr. Adam Cirlincione and Dr. William Spielfogel, Dr.'s REMEDY.

"The birth of Dr.'s REMEDY® began with a warning. Dr. Cirlincione's wife was pregnant and advised against using hair dyes, eating certain foods, and being exposed to harsh chemicals. Dr. Cirlincione began to research the toxins contained in most commercial nail polish, which is commonly used by pregnant women. It became obvious that formaldehyde, toluene and DBP are not only linked to serious health problems, but also potentially damaging to the nail as well.

Dr. Cirlincione partnered with Dr. Spielfogel and together they formulated Dr.'s REMEDY®, free from THE BIG 3, but also UNIQUELY ENRICHED with ingredients, such as tea tree oil and garlic bulb extract, which are naturally occurring anti-fungal, antibacterial, and healthier for the nail.

Not only is Dr.'s REMEDY® better for you, it comes in a rainbow of today's most fashionable colors.

•Enhanced with naturally occurring anti-fungal ingredients and vitamins to promote healthier nails.

•Appealing to women with discolored nails, pregnant women, or parents looking for safer alternatives for their children.

•Allergen friendly for those sensitive to chemicals in commercial nail polish.

•Enriched means a stronger, healthier looking nail, which is appealing to everyone."

First up...

2 coats, no top coat

Revive is described as a ruby red shimmer infused Wizard of Oz inspired shade of crimson. A great red shimmer-frost.  I'm sure there  are other similar colors, but can they say they are enriched with tea tree oil, vitamins and wheat protein?...I don't think so :) The 2nd coat is key to this color it really does a great job eliminating brush-strokes.

2 coats, no top coat

Desire is described as a cocoa meets hot fudge handsome hue.  I honestly was ready to hate this color on my skin, but it's rich tones really appeal to me. Smooth, creamy, gorgeous. I really like this chocolaty colored creme, 2 coats, no issues :)

2 coats, no top coat

Healing is described as a seductive pewter with deep blue undertones.  I may not agree with the description, but I know one thing....I love greys and I love THIS grey too. The 1st coat had bald spots but the 2nd coat covered them up perfectly.

There is also another color on their site that I REALLY want, it's called "Vigor" and it's described as a vibrant bluish-purple....I sooooo want that color. :)

Dr.'s REMEDY nail colors are free from toxins found in most commercial nail polish ( DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde).  Dr.'s REMEDY Enriched Nail Polish is available for $16 online at or by calling 1-877-323-NAIL.
