Vintage Valentines - Botanics - Sea Holly

Blue/purple shimmer  

Botanics is a brand from Boots, the UK drugstore.  Whilst Botanics still produce skin and body care products, the make-up range disappeared many years ago.

I have a small collection of 4 or 5 Botanics polishes...

Hmm, not sure the jojoba oil and coconut extract are really going to make much difference with the cocktail of chemicals that make up nail polish!

Sea Holly is a gorgeous purple toned blue shimmer - if you google 'sea holly' you'll see how close the colour comes to it's inspiration..

Application was good and swatches are 2 coats, no top coat.

This one was a bit of a surprise, I don't think I've worn it before and I should've done, it's lovely.


  1. Beautiful! Can you suppose any dupe of this color in polishes available today?

    1. Oooh, good question - I'll have a think...
