Dr.'s Remedy Grateful & a stringy mani

Today I have the last of the Dr.'s Remedy summer trio to show you.  Grateful is amazing and probably my favorite of the 3.  Then again I'm totally addicted to purples.

I'll show you the nail art first.  I've wanted to try some new techniques and found this stringy mani on Pinterest.

I started with a base coat of Grateful then followed the instructions on the link I posted above.  

From tip to base(or bottom to top of the pic):
  •  Grateful
  • Grateful + Hopeful mixed
  • Hopeful
  • Hopeful + Youthful mixed
  • Youthful
This was relatively easy to do.  I just dipped out drops onto a laminated card & swirled the polish around with a dotting tool until it became stringy then sorta dragged it over each nail.  You can see on my pinky that I goofed and tried to apply a top coat to my pinky right before taking pictures.  Other than that, I really love this mani & I'll definitely be trying it again with different color combos.

Now I'll show you the base color, Grateful, by itself....

Above is 2 coats of Grateful with a top coat(I think).  This is totally a 1 coater, but I goofed and needed 2.  I also had bubbles with this due to my forgetting the ceiling fan nearby.  The last pic I took with flash to show the subtle shimmer in this polish.  It's a beautiful grape shade that looked blue on my camera, but fortunately did photograph purple for me.  So I didn't have to color correct anything.

Dr.'s Remedy says "GRATEFUL Grape: Move over Jolly Rancher, this take on grape has sizzle, shine and a touch of shimmer."

I don't think this is like any other purple that I own and I love it.
