China Glaze: Tree Hugger

Flying in the face of our cold winter weather down here in Melbourne I have another - ever so slightly out there - summer colour for this NOTD post.
 
China Glaze's Tree Hugger was one of my Great Singapore Sale buys and was such a fun (fun! FUN!!) shade to wear.  This yellow-based green reminds me of good old Granny Smith apples, right down to the golden shimmery undertones.  The formula was a little on the thick side but didn't cause any major application issues and the finish was ultra smooth in two coats.  My research tells me Tree Hugger was released way back in 2008 as part of an eco-themed collection so it wouldn't surprise me at all if the bottle I bought is pretty old, explaining the thickness of this polish.  

All pictures taken in the Singaporean sun!
 
 
 
This shade definitely has me craving warm weather again!
 
Until next time

    1. Thanks Tracy!

      We complain down here but our winters are pretty mild compared to yours! It gets down to about 3 degrees Celsius overnight (occasionally down to zero) and the days probably max out at around 12 to 13 in the middle of winter. We don't get snow in the city or suburbs obviously. It's about a 3 hour drive to the Victorian Alps if we want to go skiing!

  4. Lime green! Love it. How cold does it get over there, to echo Tracy's question? I've always wondered!

    1. Yeah, I was feeling pretty brave because I usually steer away from too bright greens but I really loved it!

      See my answer to Tracy above. It gets cold enough for winter coats and scarves but not quite cold or wet enough for waterproof boots or earmuffs!

    1. It's absolutely the colour of apples! I think that's why I was drawn to the shade. So summery too - you can see I was trying to hold onto that summer vacation feeling for as long as possible!!
