Yves Rocher Holiday 2015 Limited Edition Nail Polish Collection: Review and Swatches
Holiday nail polish collections are definitely some of the most anticipated releases on my list and this year, Yves Rocher has a beautiful Holiday 2015 Botanical Color Nail Polish ($3.50 CAD) Collection full of festive shimmery jewel tones and unexpected pastel textured shades. To see some swatches and my reviews of all the shades, click.......

Pearly Midnight Blue:
A gorgeous deep sapphire shimmer, Pearly Midnight Blue is incredibly rich and pigmented. Yves Rocher polishes have a very wide brush applicator, which for me is slightly tricky to work with, especially if the formulation is runny. However, Pearly Midnight Blue has the perfect consistency, I used two coats for the swatches below.
Pearly Midnight Blue, two coats with no top coat.
Silver Glitter Top Coat:
No holiday collection is complete without a glitter topper and this one is a mesmerizing silver and iridescent mini glitter combination. The formulation is packed with glitter particles so I only needed two coats for a nice and even coverage.

Pearly Charcoal Grey:
A re-release of the Summer 2015 "Anthracite" shade, Pearly Charcoal Grey is an oil-slick shimmer made of color-shifting particles that switch between grey, green, and light purple. The formulation for this one is slightly sheerer than the summer release, although two coats provide a nice and even coverage.

Pearly Purple:
A deep berry pink, Pearly Purple is packed with flecks of silver and hot pink sparkles. The formulation is very pigmented and smooth. I almost got away with one coat but I used two just in case.

Pearly Pink Champagne:
This is a soft peach frost with a fairly sheer formulation. The texture is super runny so it kept on pooling near my cuticles and the drying time was annoyingly long. I used two coats for the swatches below.

Frosted Pink Champagne:
A pastel peach textured polish packed with sandy particles, orange color flecks, and shiny silver sparkles, Frosted Pink Champagne is not a shade I see a lot for the holidays but I actually really like it. The formulation is slightly sheer so I had to use three coats on a couple of nails.

Frosted Blue:
A pale blue with iridescent shimmer specks and shiny silver hex glitters, Frosted Blue is the perfect winter color. The finish has a fine texture and two coats provide a nice and even coverage.
Frosted Blue, two coats with no top coat.
Frosted Green:
This is a soft baby green textured polish with subtle green sparkles and silver glitters. The formulation is very similar to that of Frosted Blue, easy to apply and fast-drying. I used two coats for the swatches below.
