Review: Dr.'s Remedy Revive Ruby Red

Seasonal shades to enchant, inspire, ignite

Holiday cheer is contagious: the spirit is infectious, the charm is encapsulating. It's so divine, in fact, that you wish you could "bottle it up" - savor it, treasure it. Luckily, your friends at Dr.'s REMEDY did just that this year with their holiday collection of hues: JOLLY & JOY. In the lineup, five shades that are rich, riveting, and radiant. And the best part: the colors are traditional in scope but not on scale; meaning red and green - yes, the docs have you covered. See for yourself in the best holiday collection yet: Dr.'s REMEDY JOLLY & JOY for holiday 2011.

The holiday 2011 JOLLY & JOY collection of Enriched Nail Polish includes:
REVIVE Ruby Red: A shimmer-infused, Wizard of Oz-inspired shade of crimson
PASSION Purple: A bombshell-boysenberry with subtle silver meshed throughout
ESSENTIAL Emerald: A take on the classic tree-and-plant-inspired gem of a shade, with delicate glimmer and unparalleled amounts of glamour
SERENE Silver Glitter: A seasonal sizzler like no other: shine, chic, totally unique in the metallic scene
RESOLUTION Red Glitter: A red-meets-copper spin that's sequin-look-alike laden with high-shine and sparkle

Dr.'s REMEDY Enriched Nail Polish is available for $17 online at

Today I am reviewing Dr.'s Remedy's Revive Ruby Red from their Holiday Hues: Jolly and Joy. This is a stunning red. It is bright and shinning. It is like a bright candy apple red, or like the stripe from a home-made candy cane. You know what I'm talking about. The red in those hand made candy canes, like in those old-fashioned candy stores. The red in those candy canes is so bright and shiny and glossy. Mmm There is one of those candy stores in Columbia, CA, where my grandma lives, and they make ribbon candy with this kind of red. 
Anyway, it is a beautiful red. It applied very nicely.  EDIT: I only had a problem with the square lid. It was a bit awkward to handle. (I was told after the fact that the square lid comes off. LOL, just pull up and it comes off and there is a round lid underneath. Kind of like Butter London. Now I know and so do you. :) Problem easily solved.) The polish also has a strong smell to it. However, Dr.'s Remedy has greatly improved their formula since their summer colors. This polish was not at all grainy. It was perfectly smooth. This mani lasted over 24 hours and only had minimal tip wear. This is one of my favorite colors from the holiday collection. Can't wait to review the rest.
