Yves Rocher Botanical Colour Nail Polish in Hydrangea Pink / Rose hortensia

Yves Rocher — Hydrangea Pink / Rose hortensia (Botanical Colour Nail Polish) Swatch & Review

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 Hydrangea Pink / Rose hortensia (25), a midtoned, muted mauve pink cream. It does sort of read “mature”, as mauve creams can, but I also think it’s quite elegant. The color is strong and unmuddied, despite the dustiness of the shade. It’s a lovely option for a more conservative look.

This nail polish is also named for one of my favorite flowers, the hydrangea (or hortensia), which ranges in color from white to varying shades of blue, red, pink, and purple:

Application is perfectly smooth and even. You’ll want two coats for full opacity.

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.
