Collection: Yves Rocher 2015 Summer
After the success of my first foray into Yves Rocher’s updated nail polish line, Botanical Colour Nail Polish (here are my previous reviews), I placed an order for a few more from their Summer 2015 collection: Aqua Blue, Iridescent Anthracite, and Pink Sherbet.
Today, I’m reviewing Pink Sherbet / Rose azalée (23). It’s a quite lovely warm, midtoned pink that is bright but not in-your-face about it. In many ways, it’s a typical Yves Rocher color: clean, feminine, and demure.
As is the case with the other Botanical Colour Nail Polishes that I’ve tried, the formula is very nice: smooth, even, and opaque in two coats. You can technically get away with just one coat of Pink Sherbet, but it’s about 85% opaque so I do prefer two coats.
If you’re looking for an all-occasion pink, this is a really good choice. I think it would wear well on many skintones, as it’s a mostly neutral pink that runs just a touch warm and yellow-toned. The color is very crisp and would look especially nice against white.
A word about the brush: it is a wide paddle shape with a rounded end, and it makes application so, so easy, particularly if your nails are not teeny like mine are—but it still works well for me.
Yves Rocher Botanical Colour Nail Polish is 0.16 fl oz / 5 mL and retails for US$6 / CA$6 / UK£2.95 / EU€2.95. It is free of toluene, formaldehyde, and dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and it is made in France.
Yves Rocher was founded in 1959. The company is based in La Gacilly, France.
