Dr Remedy's Jolly and Joy 2011 Holiday Collection

Dr. Remedy's Enriched Nail Polish is a brand that was created by doctors are free from harmful chemicals. This polish is safe for pregnant women and kids. It's also great for people who have nail fungus, suffer from brittle or discolored nails, or are allergic to the chemicals in regular nail polish. It's 3 free and contains tea tree oil, vitamins, and wheat proteins.

I will show you Dr. Remedy's Jolly and Joy 20ll holiday collection. Since it's close to the holidays, what better collection to show you. As soon as I saw these colors in person, I couldn't wait to wear them. I automatically thought of Christmas. These colors are so beautiful and I will wear them a lot this holiday season. All of these are  2 coats with no base or topcoat.

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

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

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

"SERENE Silver Glitter: A seasonal sizzler like no other: shine, chic, totally unique in the metallic scene."

This has silver, red, and a light green almost blue glitter  in it

"RESOLUTION Red Glitter: A red-meets-copper spin that's sequin-look-alike laden with high-shine and sparkle."

This looks coppery pink to me. I have fallen in love with this color.

Dr. Remedy's is available online for $17 at or by calling 1-877-323-NAIL.!/remedynails

Dr Remedy's Instant Cover

Dr. Remedy's Instant Cover is a concealing cream that I've wanted to try since they came out with it. I've been looking for a concealer to cover my tattoo on my arm. In the profession that I'm in, we need to have out tattoo's covered and I would love to be able to wear short sleeves without having to put a jacket over it. So today, I'll show you Instant Cover.

The sponge comes already attached

this color is for medium skin tones


Of all the concealers I've tried, this one is the best...still a little off but the best. I say it's a little off because my complexion is a lot hard to match. I've never found one that's my exact shade. But as you can tell this did a good job of covering my tattoo. You can only see it a little. Maybe if I had outlined my tattoo using a concealer pencil and then using this it wouldve completely blended. I'm pretty happy with the results.

Instant Cover comes in three shades...light, medium, and dark.  It retails for $40. To order this, check out their website at!/remedynails

Pink Wednesday Nicole by OPI Kim-pletely in Love

Today I have a polish for you that I recently picked up at Walmart. It's Nicole by OPI's Kim-pletely in Love from the new Kardashian collection called Kardashian Kolor. Now given her circumstances right now, I dont think that's true anymore but I know I'm in love with this color. It is a baby pink with very fine blue glitter. Now I see this polish as one that I will be wearing a lot so I think I will go back to get a back up of it. This is my first time using NOPI and I think the formula is great. It took 4 coats to get it semi-opaque but that's okay because I like the way it turned out.

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day is a day of remembrance for pregnancy loss and infant death which includes but is not limited to miscarriagestillbirthSIDS, or the death of a newborn. It is observed annually in the United States and Canada and, in recent years, in the United Kingdom, on October 15.
The day is observed with remembrance ceremonies and candle-lighting vigils, concluding with the International Wave of Light, a worldwide lighting of candles at 7:00 p.m.

Today I am doing a special manicure in rememberance of all the angel babies out there. It is said that 1 out of every 4 women experience this loss. I never knew about this day until I became that 1. I found out I was pregnant on January 31st. This would be the first child together for my fiance and I. At my 12 week appointment on March 21st, I found out the baby had stopped growing at 7 weeks. They called it a "blighted ovum"/missed miscarriage. I was so devastated and in shock. I could not stop crying. I went to that appointment alone because it was my fiance's first day of his new job. 2 days later i went to the hospital for the D&C.

This month is hard for me because October 5th was my due date. That day I sat at home all day sad and crying. But i know my day will come when we have a little bundle of joy to add to our beautiful family. 

O.P.I. What's with the cattitude and Sparrow me the drama,  ChG  Fairy Dust

So this is for all the families who suffered the loss of their little angels and mine too and to always remember our angels. 

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this because its not mainly about polish. It was very hard and painful   to talk about it but I want people that have gone through this, to know that they are not alone. After it happened, my emotions were all over the place. I was sad, blaming myself, angry. I couldnt even be around my sister-n-law because she was pregnant. But what I found that helped me were the pregnancy forums. I would always look in the pregnancy loss section and read peoples comments and to see how supportive they were of each other. I would also look at the pregnancy after loss section and see that many women had successful pregnancies after. One day my beautiful 5 year old son and 12 year old stepdaughter will have another brother or sister....or both :)

Butter London Pearly Queen

Now I had never heard of Butter London before I came across this polish. I came across this polish in a blog sale and thought it was a pretty color and for $ can't beat that. After I bought it, I looked up the brand and found out that the polishes cost $14. Yes $14. So I got a real good deal for this polish.

This is a pearly white and looks so clean on my fingers, if that makes sense I love it so much that I wore it twice in a row. This took two coats. This will definitely NOT be my last Butter London. On 9/20, Ulta is having a sale on Butter London, buy 1 get 1 FREE. Plus you can use the $3.50 off any purchase of $10 or more. You know what that mean...I have mine picked out so expect some posts on those in the future. You can purchase them on their website or on Ulta's website.

A England Excalibur

A England is a nail company in the UK that has wonderful polishes. I am excited to say that I won this polish on A England's facebook page 2 weeks ago. Excalibur is a metallic silver. This is part of the collection called THE MYTHICALS.                     

This polish is so great that it's a one coater. This would be perfect for stamping. I will have to test that theory out soon. You can buy their polishes on . Also go check out their FB page.
