Yves Rocher Botanical Colour Nail Polish in Aqua Blue / Bleu aqua

Yves Rocher — Aqua Blue / Bleu aqua (Botanical Colour Nail Polish) Swatch & Review

Collection: Yves Rocher 2015 Summer

So, I’ve been completely smitten by Yves Rocher’s new line of Botanical Colour Nail Polish and I’ve taken advantage of their many sales and ordered even more colors. I mean, they end up coming in at around CA$3 a pop. What’s not to love?

Well, I hope you’re not totally sick of Yves Rocher polishes yet! I have loads more to go. I’ll try to spread them out a bit more in the following weeks, but I really did want to post this particular review sooner, since I think it’s just that good.

Today, I’m reviewing Aqua Blue / Bleu aqua (65), a pastel baby blue cream. It’s more whitened and a clearer blue (not as periwinkle-y) as Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Babe Blue, which is another very well-performing pastel blue.

I have to say, though, that Yves Rocher’s pastel blue takes the cake. It applies so gorgeously that you cannot even imagine why other brands have such difficulty getting pastels to apply nicely. This formula surpasses the Sally Hansen, as well, easily. If you want a pastel sky blue, I recommend this one whole-heartedly.

Two coats gets you perfect, even coverage. This stuff is amazing.

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.

    • ITA. I think that every time I swatch these, now. If it was in a fancy bottle labeled Chanel or Dior, I would not be surprised at how nice they are. I suspect part of the nice application is due to the paddle-shaped brush, but still!
