Yves Rocher Botanical Colour Nail Polish in Fig / Figue

Yves Rocher — Fig / Figue (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 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.

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.
