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 Magnolia (01), a fairly standard sheer, milky pale pink with a neutral beige tone. It’s hard to imagine that this wouldn’t look good on most skintones.
The best thing about this polish is its formula. It’s sheer, and very easy to build up. You can wear one or two coats for a French manicure, or go up to three (mostly opaque with VNL) and even four coats for more coverage. I used three coats for the swatch, just so you can get a better idea of what the color looks like.
I tend not to wear sheers very much, but if they all applied as beautifully as Magnolia does, perhaps I would wear them more often!
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.
