Dior Golden Jungle Collection has been out since mid August in the UK. I’ve been eying up most of the collection I will admit, its lovely and autumnal with a hint of gold. There are three polishes in this collection, a lovely Crocodile Crackle Duo (Ltd Edition), a dark green (Amazonia) and today’s lovely Bengale.
Like all new Dior editions, Bengale comes with the new standard Dior brush. I know lots of people have issues with this, I don’t. I love the wide brush and find it has the right thickness to coat my nail in just over two coats. The brush is curved at the end and I find this means I can leave a small gap between nail paint and my cuticles. I’d be interested to know in what you guys think of the brush.
Anyway, onto the colour. Bengale is a lovely rich, dark brown. I know that sounds boring, but it really isn’t. Its a lovely rich creme that glides onto the nail. I wasn’t convinced with the promo shots and it is a bit darker than on the Dior website. Once I saw it in real life, it was my first go to purchase from the collection.
I really love Dior polishes, I know for £18 they are a bit steep, but the colour saturation is excellent. The quality of the formula is amazing. And the wear of the polish is also fabulous. I would snap this up if you have no browns in your collection, as a reddy/brown pale Celt, its fab against my skin tone.
In the UK, Dior can be bought from large Department Stores and large Boots stores. Price point is £18. Its worth noting that is was a Selfridges exclusive for the first few weeks and you can buy items online there.
