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 Iris (34), a deep, dark violet cream. (It’s iris weekend at fivezero!) It’s a pretty intense purple with strong blue tones. It does look darker on the nail than it does in the bottle, but I’m happy to report that it isn’t quite so dark that you’d mistake it for black.
The pigmentation is equally intense. You do need two coats for full opacity, but overall, this polish applies beautifully with no streaks. This is a really gorgeous vampy violet.
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.
