Dr's Remedy Jolly & Joy Collection Swatches and Review - Cremes/Shimmers

Good Morning Babes! I'm finally back to my regular posting schedule after the hectic holiday week. Today I have the cremes/shimmers and the rest of the collection for you today. I used 1 coat of INM Out The Door as my top coat for swatches in this post.

REVIVE Ruby Red - A shimmer-infused Wizard of Oz-inspired shade of crimson.

Ruby Red is a deep burgundy red metallic polish. I definitely wouldn't call this a "Wizard of Oz" red because its much to dark. The brush was absolutely terrible, it must have been some defect because it was almost as thin as a nail art brush. This is 1 thick coat because I definitely was over this brush. The formula was good but I still had brush strokes that I believe would not have been there had there been a regular brush. Dry time was very good and it dried to a nice glossy finish.

PASSION Purple - A bombshell-boysenberry with subtle silver meshed throughout.

Passion Purple is a very pretty wine toned purple with purple, blue and red micro glitter. The formula was amazing and was opaque in 2 thin coats. I don't like these deep dark purples but this color is amazing and I absolutely love it which really shocked me. Its a bit darker IRL which is why I called it a wine toned purple. Dry time was also very good on this one.

ESSENTIAL Emerald - A take on the classic tree-and-plant inspired gem of a shade, with delicate glimmer and unparalleled amounts of glamour.

 Emerald aaaahhhh the star of the collection. I LOVE THIS COLOR! The description is very accurate when its described as tree and plant based, because that's exactly how I would describe the tone. In this polish there's green, blue, purple, and silver micro shimmer that really make this polish unique and pop. I used 2 thin coats and it was perfection. The formula is amazing just like the others, and it dried very fast. I will definitely be revisiting this color, such a beautiful green.

What do you think of these 3 beauties? I love Emerald and Purple, they both go well with my skin tone. I don't think that there's anything special about Ruby Red, its a very common red metallic but it is still pretty nonetheless. All in all I would definitely recommend this whole collection, they are all so pretty.
