Late last week I received these beauties for review and wanted to get them up as soon as possible. The Step into Summer collection includes three summery shades: GRATEFUL Grape, HOPEFUL Hot Pink, and YOUTHFUL Yellow. As first impressions go, the three colors look nice together and definitely project a summer vibe. I’ve yet to be disappointed with the formula, wear time or color payoff with a Dr.’s Remedy product. So, now on to the colors!
First up is GRATEFUL which Dr.’s Remedy describes a grape polish that had a “sizzle, shine and a touch of shimmer”. When I took the bottles out of the box and unwrapped them, I thought this would be my least favorite since I’m weird about my purple shades. However, once I put this baby on, it moved to the top of the list. GRATEFUL is a one coater polish that applied really well.
Next up is HOPEFUL Hot Pink which Dr.’s Remedy describes as “this shade of pink is every gal’s new best pal, no doubt”. Its a great pink creme right? This one was thinner than GRATEFUL and I used two coats for the photos. I do love a cool toned pink.
Lastly we have YOUTHFUL Yellow which Dr.’s Remedy describes as “a hue of banana-meets-lemon with here-comes-the-sun subtlety, this shade is matte, marvelous and magical”. Just from the description I knew this color would be great. I can say that YOUTHFUL applied better than any other creme yellows I have tried but the first coat was still streaky. Everything evened out by the second coat. I would consider this more of a satin finish than a true matte though I would love to see Dr.’s Remedy tackle true matte polishes, maybe for the fall or winter.
All in all, I think this is a great summer collection. They all look good together, they apply easily and wear well. Once I finished taking pictures of YOUTHFUL, I got a wild hair to try a watermarble with the set.
