City Pulse

By Deborah Kerner

The birth of Dr.’s REMEDY began with a warning: New York podiatrist Dr. Adam Cirlincione’s wife was pregnant and advised against using hair dyes, being exposed to certain, harmful chemicals and eating potentially-hazardous foods. Dr. Cirlincione began researching the ingredient lists on his wife’s favorite cosmetics, and found that her nail polish appeared problematic: DBP, toluene and formaldehyde – which are common to many mainstream nail enamels – are proven dangerous, as well as damaging to the nail.

Enter, the origin of Dr.’s REMEDY. Dr. Cirlincione partnered with friend and fellow New York podiatrist Dr. William Spielfogel to develop an enriched nail polish that contained amazing, gorgeous pigment – and was void of harmful, harsh chemicals. As Board Certified Podiatrists, the two doctors understood the need for a healthier, more natural polish.

Dr.’s REMEDY is a line of cosmetics and nail polishes, enriched with naturally occurring antifungal ingredients like tea tree oil, garlic bulb extract, vitamins C and E, and wheat protein. The first product in the line was the Enriched Nail Polish, which is free from harsh toxins and promotes healthier, stronger nails and to help with nail discoloration. Dr.’s REMEDY is ideal for any person who likes to treat her skin and nails to the most healthful ingredients and products available. The Enriched Nail Polish (and the ancillary nail products) are especially perfect for people with brittle and discolored nails, as well as women who are pregnant.

This holiday season, Dr.’s REMEDY introduces five shades that are rich, riveting, and radiant. And the best part: the colors are traditional in scope but not on scale; meaning red and green – yes, the docs have you covered. See for yourself in the best holiday collection yet: Dr.’s REMEDY JOLLY & JOY for Holiday 2011.

The holiday 2011 JOLLY & JOY collection of Enriched Nail Polish includes:
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 unparalleled amounts of glamour
SERENE Silver Glitter: A seasonal sizzler like no other: shine, chic, totally unique in the metallic scene
RESOLUTION Red Glitter: A red-meets-copper spin that’s sequin-look-alike laden with high-shine and sparkle
