Dr's REMEDY Summer 2011 Collection

Good afternoon lacquered lovers! On this fine (hot!) August day I thought I'd share with you a summer collection from a brand that is new to me! Dr's REMEDY is a brand that was designed to be a safe nail polish for those who want a nail polish that doesn't have harsh toxins such as pregnant women, those who have young children, those with allergies and the polishes promote healthy nails with vitamins and anti-fungal components. Now, without further ado, I give you the summer 2011 collection~

From left to right: GLEE Gold, BOLD Baby Blue, TRANQUIL Tangerine, LOVELY Lavender, NURTURE Nude Pink

This collection is definitely very summery with the light pink and purple, shimmery gold and bright blue and orange!

GLEE gold is a very pretty, although fairly sheer, shimmering gold. The shimmer is almost more silver than gold which gives the gold a lighter look, not yellow leaning as many golds can be. Since yellowing tones don't look good on my skin, I was very happy with GLEE gold! My only complaint is that it was very sheer and would have taken at least 3 coats to get rid of the Visible Nail Line, possibly even gold coats. I think this color would be a great layering polish to give any color a shimmer!

I am in love with this color! Granted, I love virtually all blues, but I actually do not have a dupe for this! This is a great lighter blue with tons of silver shimmer. After seeing it in the bottle I was worried it would be a streaky mess, but instead it went on completely opaque in two coats and was absolutely stunning. I love this shade of blue for the spring or summer!

This color is bright! I was never one for orange polishes before this summer but now I kind of love them! In fact, I may wear this nail polish tomorrow because I'm going to a METS game and I've got to show my blue and orange pride! TRANQUIL Tangerine is anything but tranquil, this orange is in your face and filled with golden shimmer that makes it look like it's lit up from the inside. This color was completely opaque in 2 coats and a great polish if you really want to make a statement!

LOVELY Lavender is a greyed out light purple, definitely leaning towards blue tones and has a cream finish. This color was the least unique in the collection in my opinion. It went on great, fully opaque in 2 coats, however I have seen other bloggers review this collection and they have a much brighter lilac version of this polish. I'm not sure why there are two versions of this polish floating around, and I have to say that from pictures, I like the brighter version better. If you are a lover of grey toned purples however, then this color would be perfect!

Lastly there is NURTURE Nude Pink. This color is a pale pink, almost nude with some brighter pink very subtle shimmer. The shimmer really only comes out in the sun. If you are a nude kind of gal, this color is very pretty and definitely more pink than many of the peachier nudes that are popular now. Since I'm really not a pink/nude person, I definitely did not have a dupe but this color would be great when I need something subtle!

All in all, I liked this collection and I liked the formula a lot on these polishes. None of them were really streaky for me, not even the nude which I usually have issues with. Dr's REMEDY retails for about $17 a bottle so they are definitely on the pricier side but for a safe nail polish and some of the colors like the Tangerine or the Baby Blue, I'd say it's worth it.

Have you tried any Dr's REMEDY polishes? Which is your favorite from this collection?
