Dr.’s REMEDY ~ Breast Cancer Awareness 2021

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey y’all! Today I have for you some pink before the month is over! I am behind because these were not delivered very quickly. The mail is just crazy and it’s about to get worse so strap in! Holidays are coming up quick. Anywho, for now we are bringing the pink! October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Dr.’s REMEDY has put together a few shades to support the cause! Let’s check them out!

PROMISING Pink is a very soft pink crelly polish. I want to love this one but I just can’t. The formula was not the best and it was very unforgiving to my nail ridges. You can see clearly in pics that it did not cover the nail fully. I have never had this happen before. Especially after 3 coats of polish! This polish would be ok at 1 coat for a sheer wash of color. I used 3 coats for my swatches.

POSITIVE Pink is a bubblegum pink creme polish. This one was nice to work with. Nice creamy formula that applies beautifully. You could use 2 coats but I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.

PLAYFUL Pink is a bright pink creme polish with added silver shimmer. This one was my favorite. Great coverage and a wonderful formula. This is a definite 2 coater. I used 3 coats though because I’m just weird like that.

Uniquely formulated with organic ingredients, nourishing
vitamins— and without toxic additives commonly found in
traditional polish—our podiatrist-formulated lacquers won’t
just make your nails look great, they’ll make you feel great
about wearing them. That’s because for the month of
October, Dr.’s REMEDY® is donating 10% of the proceeds
from the sale of each bottle of PROMISING Pink to Living
Beyond Breast Cancer.

This October, treat your nails to the ultimate feel good
manicure, compliments of Dr.’s REMEDY®. In honor of
Breast Cancer Awareness month, Dr.’s REMEDY® is proud to
partner with Living Beyond Breast Cancer, an organization
dedicated to expanding the resources and improving the
lives of women living with breast cancer. This month
Dr.’s REMEDY® is highlighting its Pretty in Pink Collection:
Featuring top selling Promising Pink. Complete with a
wellness-inspired name— a Dr.’s REMEDY® signature—
PROMISING was hand picked to promote positivity, serenity
and encouragement, empowering those facing the fight against
Breast Cancer to feel good about themselves and their nails.

Living Beyond Breast Cancer (LBBC) is a nonprofit
organization whose vision is a world where no one
impacted by breast cancer feels uninformed or alone.
To strive toward reaching that vision, LBBC’s mission
is to connect people with trusted breast cancer
information and a community of support. LBBC
addresses the current needs of people affected by
breast cancer, whether they are newly diagnosed,
in treatment, recovery or living with a history of or
managing a metastatic form of the disease. Resources
are developed in collaboration with the nation’s
leading oncologists, health professionals and ally
organizations and are delivered by people who
understand the physical and emotional complexities
of breast cancer. LBBC offers its programs and
services in a variety of printed and digital formats.
For more information, visit them at LBBC.org.

I know that’s a lot to read but it’s worth it! Each polish will be $17.25. Or you can get the Pretty In PINK collection for $62 which includes the 3 pinks above, a polish remover, and a bag for your mani tools. Either way treat yourself!

Glisten & Glow ~ Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Polishes + Cuticle Oil Pen

*WORDY!!

Hey guys 🙂 I am SO happy to be sharing this with you today! Breast Cancer Awareness is a cause I believe very strongly in. I have donated time and money when I can. But guess what? I have never personally known anyone who has had to deal with this. It seems crazy but it’s true. I honestly just believe that because I am a woman, my mom is a woman, my daughters are women, etc; we should all be supporting the cause. It is mostly a female issue so why not support something that can happen to anyone you love! Here is another thing you may or may not know: At the end of July, Jill’s mom Anne was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer that had spread to the lymph nodes.  The cancer was found at her yearly mammogram. They remain positive and hopeful for a cancer free future for her. Her form of breast cancer is aggressive and over the next year she will be receiving chemo, have surgery, and radiation. Fortunately, financially it will all be possible for her but for many women it is not. Jill and Anne created this collection to raise awareness of early detection, breast cancer in general, and to help women during this difficult time. 100% of the profits* from the sale of this collection will be donated to the Cancer Center in CT where she is receiving treatment and the donation will be earmarked for women who need financial assistance for treatments. We will be sharing the specific Cancer Center closer to launch and the donation will be publicly shown when the sale is completed. (*Profits are calculated less the cost of the ingredients to make the product, shipping and PayPal fees and promo discount codes.) I can only hope to do these babies justice for the both of them ❤ Let’s go!

Pink Is Stronger Than You Think is a light pink crème polish packed with pink and copper shimmer with a light dusting of holo. This one was a little streaky on the first coat. It totally covered on the second coat. This polish is super pretty and dainty, but for me it wasn’t the best G&G polish I have used formula wise. I’m sure a little thinner would fix it right up! I used 2 coats plus Glisten & Glow glossy and matte top coats for my swatches. Art was done using The Breast Is Yet To Come for the dry brushing and stamping, and Born Pretty stamping plate BP-26.

Big Or Small, Save Them All is a medium pink crelly polish packed with blue, purple, and pink ucc flakies and a light dusting of holo. I ADORE this one! The formula is freaking fantastic ❤ This is my ultimate polish I think. Seriously wouldn’t change a thing! I used 3 thin coats plus G&G glossy and matte top coats for my swatch. For the art I used G&G Mother Fire and a black polish for the stamping and Born Pretty stamping plate BP-26.

The Breast Is Yet To Come is a dark pink/magenta sparkly shimmer. This one is almost foil like but not as foily. Know what I mean lol?! Absolutely perfect for the season and upcoming holidays. The formula was wonderful and went on smoothly in 2 coats. I used 2 coats and G&G glossy and matte top coats for my swatch. For the art I used Pink Is Stronger Than You Think and I hand painted the design using The Breast Is Yet To Come. I never said I was an artist lol. I am left handed, swatching on my left hand and doing art with my right hand…  This is why I stamp all the time!

OPI ~ Pink Of Hearts 2014

Hello! Tonight I have a polish duo From OPI. This is the Pink Of Hearts collection for 2014. It took me forever to get these but I have made a point of getting every yearly set/polish since 2012. Not a huge accomplishment but I had just stopped biting my nails so whatever! Anyone who knows me also knows that awareness of breast cancer is super important to me. As it should be for all females (and men)!!! It could happen to anyone anytime!! Click here to be brought directly to the Susan G. Komen site for info and/or to donate!! Back to the polish! Pink Of Hearts 2014 had 2 polishes and a little pink nail file with a glitter side and attached pink ribbon. The pink ribbon is clipped on with a lobster claw type clasp and I am really happy about that because I will be able to move it to my key chain when I am done using the file.

 First polish up is Mod About You. Mod About You is a bright pastel pink crème. the formula is very opaque but I still found it very streaky. My swatch on my fresh new nubs is 3 thin coats with a shiny topcoat.

 Second polish is The Power Of Pink. This polish is a sheer milky crelly tinted slightly pink with matte white and fuchsia micro and medium sized glitters. This was the one I was more excited for and I ended up liking the pink crème better!! I really do like this, its just not for me. I may come back to this when my nails are a little longer. My swatch is 3 thin coats with top coat and a matte coat on my pinkie. Very smooth formula for so much glitter!

 Over all I am super happy with this purchase! I cant wait to see what OPI releases for 2015!!
