Guys, I’m in love! I own a whole box of nail polishes, but never before a nail polish like this! Sure, the whole crackle hype didn’t appeal to me at all, I don’t know why, put I just let it pass. The Golden Jungle nail polish was instant love! I absolutely love the whole Golden Jungle collection though, the quints, the eye shadows, they are all fantastic!



So you get two bottles of nail polish. They each contain 10 ml and I paid 31 euro for the whole set, which is actually not that bad! The brushes are a bit different here, they are narrow and thin while the other nail polishes from Dior have the flat wide brush. I did wish they came with the flat wide brush, but I guess they made it thinner for more precise application.



Golden Jungle is a duo, one bottle contains a pale gold with a very shimmery finish. The first layer is quite sheer, but it’s perfect with the second layer. I love the brushed metal effect of this and the little sparkles. The second shade is a medium to dark khaki green. It has no shimmer or glitter. So this is the awesome thing about the duo, first you apply the pale golden nail polish, wait till it’s dry and then you apply a khaki layer over it. It starts to crackle quite fast and after a while you get this amazing crocodile leather effect!




I was so excited to try this on, I felt like a little kid again! Of course I had to show my boyfriend and he liked it too. Dior did a very smart thing with this nail polish duo. The crocodile leather effect is very sophisticated and the colour combination is simply stunning! You can also experiment with different layers, having them thick or thin, it all gives new possibilities! Also a lovely touch is the hint of the sparkles shining through the khaki layer, it’s just barely there, but it adds an extra dimension to the nail polish.



I absolutely recommend this lovely duo, it’s very different and it’s chic and sophisticated. If you love unique nail polishes, this one is a must-have!
