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?
Soft Coral / Corail doux (57) is from a second collection released by Yves Rocher, after the initial launch. It’s a pale, milky apricot cream.
The formula is a bit of a disappointment, compared with most of the other Botanical Colours I’ve tried (which is a lot!). It applies reasonably smoothly, but still gives subtle streaks. Two coats is passable, but I preferred three coats, as you can see in the swatch.
There’s nothing much to recommend this polish, as there are plenty of other pastel orange creams available that have as good or superior formulas.
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.
