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?
Black Cherry / Cerise noire (43) is a deep, burgundy red velvet cream. It qualifies as vampy, but it’s not blackened, so it still reads as deep red even in dim light.
Application is quite easy for a deep color, though pigmentation is not super dense, so three coats are required for full opacity. The polish dries to a really pretty, glossy shine, and has a vaguely jelly-ish look.
Three coats gives you an absolutely gorgeous deep red with plummy brown undertones:
Just two coats gives you a brighter color:
I can’t give this a super high recommendation as it does require three coats for best results, but the color is a fine example of a vampy, unblackened red, and I do love it!
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.
