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?
Today, I’m reviewing Lilac / Lilas (31), a semi-sheer pinked lavender pastel with very subtle pink shimmer.
Application is very smooth, but a little less even than usual. The semi-sheer nature of this color means that you’ll need four coats or more to get full opacity. I did three coats in the swatch and you can still see a bit of VNL.
The pink shimmer is pretty faint, so it really gives off more of a glowy, soft-focus effect. Here’s a closer, angled shot so you can see the shimmer a little better, at least in the bottle:
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.
