Swatches: Dr.'s Remedy Fall 2011

I can't believe it's already the week of Thanksgiving! I have been hoping for a nice sunny day to photograph the Fall Dr.'s Remedy line, but I just had a bit of time this weekend, so I did single-finger shots.

Fall 2011 will be fierce: leaves will change, for sure, and temps will follow suit. But the real news relates to the hues of this season. Indeed, we're revolutionarily-ready to welcome a crisper, cleaner, clearer collection of colors, kudos to Dr.'s REMEDY insight and excitement over autumn. These hues celebrate the season that screams renewal: a rich bordeaux; a modern burgundy; a navy-meets-royal blue. We welcome you to invite your nails to dance in Dr.'s REMEDY FALL FEVER 2011.

Left to right: BALANCE Brick, DEFENSE Deep Red, NOBEL Navy

NOBEL Navy: A sea-at-dusk shade that reflects light and brings dimension to tips and toes alike

This swatch is two coats. It covered really nicely, but since it was a bit thin, it had a tendency to pool around the cuticles. Since the shade is so dark, cleanup was a bit tough and you can see I had a bit of trouble getting a clean clean-up line. It's a great shade though and I'll definitely be doing a full mani, and taking my time and working to keep it out of the cuticle area.

DEFENSE Deep Red: A rich bordeaux with a mystifying matte finish

The above swatch is three coats, and I had a difficult time with this one. It was extremely thin, and it ran like crazy. Clean-up did not go well. It also did not seem to dry as matte as I expected it would.

BALANCE Brick: A modern maroon with body and balance

This shade was the best of the bunch- covered great in two coats, and was a bit thicker so I didn't have any migrating problems.
