Yves Rocher Botanical Colour Nail Polish in Iris

Yves Rocher — Iris (Botanical Colour Nail Polish)

Collection: Yves Rocher 2015 Summer, Botanical Colour Nail Polish [Launch]

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.

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.

  1. This kind of reminds me of “I Vant To Bite Your Neck” from OPI, but I like the hue of this one better because the purple stands out more while still being super deep!
