Vintage Challenge: China Glaze Four Leaf Clover - swatches and review

Today it's day three of the Vintage Challenge and that means "Green"! I have chosen a green gem from 2010 - China Glaze Four Leaf Clover!

This is such a gorgeous bright medium green with a drop of blue in it! I haven't used it for over three years and I had forgotten how truly beautiful it really is!!

Four Leaf Clover was part of China Glaze's Up and Away Collection released spring 2010.

Look at the match with the dress I wore for my god daughter's baptism!! :D

GOOD TO KNOW:

Type of polish: Cream.

Color: A bright medium green with a drop of blue in it.

Number of coats: Two.

Formula: A very good formula. Easy to control and self leveling. The formula had curdled a bit after not being used for three years but after a good shake it was like new again.

Brush: Ok. Nice width, but perhaps a bit too soft.

Top Coat: Yes. One coat.

Color accuracy in pictures: Quite accurate. A tiny bit greener live.

Grade: 5/5

I sound like a parrot this week ;) but I should really wear this polish more often! It's absolutely stunning and I love these kind of blue/green shades!!

How do you like Four Leaf Clover?

    1. It's so wonderful! I must have been lucky because I found the right spot for taking it's pictures right away! Last time I wore it it was a nightmare to take pictures of... That was during winter and I had to use artificial lighting and this polish does not like artificial lighting...

  9. Now, that's a great green! I don't have this one so I think I need to add it to my polish wish list. Also, I wouldn't have to worry about what to wear for St. Patricks Day! Ha! ;)

  10. Coolt att du visade detta! Har funderat på att köpa den flera gånger, men av någon anledning har det inte blivit av. Kanske för att jag misstänker att jag har något som liknar detta.

    1. I think it's fairly unique but if it turns out that you don't have any similar I think you should get it before it gets discontinued! :)
