Dr.'s Remedy: SERENE Silver Glitter

Hi everyone! Sorry for the late post today but I had a horrible migraine headache today and didn't even go to work :-(

Today I want to share another polish Dr.'s Remedy. This is from their holiday collection and it's called SERENE, Silver Glitter. This is one fabulous holiday polish! I think if you're going to splurge on one Dr.'s Remedy polish this one should be high on your list.  Whereas many of their offerings are really stand by favorite colors this one is bold and unique in my collection (and my collection is embarrassingly huge)!

This is a silver glitter with blue, green and red glitter particles throughout. The color combo is perfect for the holidays and makes me think of ornaments and tinsel! Make sure you enlarge the photos to see the colors!

The best thing about this polish is the texture. Sometimes glitter polishes are beautiful but gritty and almost uncomfortable to wear. I am sure you notice I don't feature many glitters on the blog and that's not because I don't love them, it's because I don't love applying, wearing and removing them.  This formula is different.  It's so smooth and it's almost like the glitter is INSIDE the polish.  I don't really know how to describe it.  The polish feels smooth and almost suede like to the touch.  Unlike many glitters I didn't feel like I needed to pack on several coats of top coat. I always use a top coat so I did use one but the texture was just divine on this polish. 

I had no issues applying and this is three coats. I do think you need the three coats for full opacity but as glitters go I do think you can get away with two if you're not in the mood to run over it again. I also had no issues removing this polish. I did not have to do the whole foil thing either, I just removed like any other polish. Now that's saying something!

I am once again impressed with the quality of this brand and I am happy to see them branching out and creating unique and bold colors. I still think the price point is hard to swallow but it really is a quality product. I guess if you pay $16 for an eye shadow primer you can pay $17 for a nail polish right? A splurge like any other.
