Yves Rocher Prune Noir + China Glaze Fiary Dust

Hey there :)

It's been quite a while since I posted a NOTD and finally I've got time to sit down on my lazy bum to show you this beauty. Yves Rocher is quite an popular brand here in Europe. They carry a lot of things- from make up to perfume( god, I love their Vanilla perfume), facial mascs, shower gels, etc. It's like "The Body Shop" only invented by a French ;).
Now to the polish itself: I believe it is from an Limited Edition but I can't remember which one because I don't buy their things that often(2, maybe 3 times a year). It's a one-coater polish but if you're not always paying attention like me while painting your nails- you'll need 2 (thin) coats of it. The colour itself is a dark, vampy purple (a bit like Chanel's Vendetta) and if you've put a second coat, it'll get black with a hint of purple. You can see on my ring finger( esp. on the side) that the true colour is a dark aubergine/eggplant purple. As usual I tend to layer such polishes with holographic glitter polishes. This time I combined it with China Glaze's Fiary Dust. I looks a bit like Orly's Prisma Gloss Silver but I think that PGS is packed with even more holographic glitter.
Here are the pictures (as always the sun doesn't want to come out so they are mostly flash photos)
