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.)
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.
