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 Fig / Figue (32), a deep, but not vampy, plummy purple cream. In dimmer light, like on an overcast day, it reads less reddish and looks more like a neutral purple. Bright sunlight brings out more of the plummy red tones. It’s almost a perfect purple: neither too red nor too blue.
Application is perfectly smooth and even. You’ll want two coats for full opacity.
It’s not the most unique shade, but it’s quite luscious and a wonderful choice for fall and winter.
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.
