Yves Rocher Botanical Colour Nail Polish in Perfect Light Pink / Parfait rose clair

Yves Rocher — Perfect Light Pink / Parfait rose clair (Botanical Colour Nail Polish)

Collection: Yves Rocher 2015 Summer

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 Perfect Light Pink / Parfait rose clair (73), which was released in a separate, 6-piece summer collection after the initial product launch.

It’s one of those “yogurt-y” shades: an ultra-smooth, frothy pastel pink cream that has a lovely plush look on the nail. The pink itself is a bit on the warmer side, with a tiny smidge more salmon to it than violet. (I think that’s why it doesn’t look entirely terrible on my yellow-toned skin.)

Strawberry swirl Pocky cake
I had no idea until today that there are genius people out there making cakes with Pocky! I am actually not a huge fan of Pocky, but I’ll be damned if this doesn’t look amazing.
There are many copies of this photo online, mostly on tumblr and Pinterest, but I don’t know the source of the original.

Application is very nice with this polish. Two coats apply easily and gives full opacity. I usually have trouble with pastels, and was surprised by how “perfectly” (har har!) this went on.

Perfect Light Pink is probably the nicest opaque pale pink I’ve ever tried, so I’m giving it a big thumbs up.

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, camphor, and dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and it is made in France.

Yves Rocher was founded in 1959. The company is based in La Gacilly, France.

  1. It’s rare to get a milky colour to apply well – perfectly pink is aptly named! 😀 I already had this on my wish list based on the website but your review cemented its purchase next year. 🙂
