Dr.'s Remedy Fall Fever Collection 2011 - review and swatches

Hi girls :)

I'm a little bit late with this Fall collection  as it had to travel to me from Dr.'s Remedy to a lovely Karen from Frazzle and Aniploish and then finally to me. I will also show you the Jolly & Joy Holiday collection next. 

This is the first time I've tried Dr.'s Remedy  polishes and some of you might not know this brand too so here is some basic info about the polishes:

"Dr.'s Remedy is a line of doctor-inspired cosmetics that is dedicated to using clean, hypoallergenic ingredients. Dr.'s REMEDY is the most unique nail polish on the market, created by two doctors who truly care. Once you experience the high quality of this enriched polish, you'll be happy you switched to a healthier alternative."

Sounds good, huh? But is the formula good as the company's description? I was very sceptical at first because I've never heard of the polishes before but I was more than pleasantly surprised! I like the simple bottles with smooth matte lid. Well let's have a look at the Fall Fever collection:

DEFENSE Deep Red -a rich bordeaux jelly. Very nicely pigmented jelly polish, this is only two coats! I had no problems with application, it was smooth, not runny, not thick (for example BB Couture Erotic Night is similar but application is patchy and horrible). Dr.'s Remedy describes this colour as with matte finish but mine is nice and shiny which I like better. I could mattify it anytime with topcoat ;) The only drawback was that polish coloured lightly my cuticles and nails (but really only lightly for a day).

NOBLE Navy - dark navy blue cream. Amazing pigmentation - this is just one coat!!! The colour is shiny, was easy to apply and didn't stain my nails. There's not much more to say, this is a great one!

BALANCE Brick - dusty pinkish red creme. Pigmentation is again good, I've used two coats but one was almost enough. Second coat added nice depth to the colour. It dries fast and removal was without any problems.

I'm impressed...I really didn't expect such a great formula! For example the NOBLE Navy has a tad better formula than OPI and that's something. I dare to say the rest is comparable to OPI. The brush is good too, I had no problems with it. Overall the pigmentation and formula is excellent!

Polishes retail for $17 at, right know I can see there some polishes on offer for $14.

*These polishes were provided to me by PR company. I've expressed my honest opinion.


  1. The red looks ravishing. I'm thoroughly impressed too. But then again, you always do the best nails.

  2. Tady se to v poslední době jen hemží příspěvky, vůbec tě nestíhám! :-D Líbí se mi ten modrý, ale tolik peněz bych za krémový lak asi nedala, i když je tak dobře pigmentovaný.

  3. Balance Brick is a very interesting color!

  4. wow! those all look beautiful on you!

  5. These look like gorgeous polishes. I wonder if they are available in the UK? I like anything tha applies in one coat, I'm so lazy! x

  6. Vůbec tuhle značku neznám, ale z toho DEFENSE Deep Red jsem si teda uslintla...

  7. Oooh, these look good on you! Glad I could help get them there. :)
