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 Pearly Wood / Bois nacré (102), a mouse brown with silver shimmer.
Application was good: two coats gave nice and even full coverage.
I do normally enjoy taupes, especially those with a bit of shimmer, but something about this one is very boring to me. In the bottle it does have a touch of mauve, but I don’t really see it on my nails. I think I prefer my taupes with a hint of lavender, blush, or something, and this is just a plain taupe brown that reads as very dull to me.
It’s not a bad polish at all; just not my color.
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.
