NOTD: China Glaze’s Jungle queen

Thursday, August 02, 2012

First off I have to say my photos aren’t good quality here. It’s slightly blurry and I only realised this after looking at it on the computer screen. Bummer! Regardless I do like this shade though. I also heard it’s a dupe for Chanel’s Paradoxal but I can’t comment on their similarity because I don’t own the Chanel polish. I don’t own any in fact, I can’t find myself spending so much on a polish, yet.

First two photos taken indoors, last two taken outdoors. Both in natural light

Jungle queen is from China Glaze’s on safari fall 2012 collection and it’s a dark greyish brown with purple shimmers that’s more evident in the bottle. I could not for the life of me capture the shimmers on the nails, not with the camera I had anyway which is a real shame. It would’ve added more depth to the shade. 

The formula was alright but unlike Adventure red-y which is from the same collection it needed two coats to be opaque. My bottle of jungle queen was a little runny, just a little so it wasn’t too hard to work with for me.

I’m digging this colour. I’m usually not a fan of browns, out of all the ones I have I don’t remember saying I like them a lot but this one’s different. It’s dark but I still prefer it over the other ones I own. 

What do you think of this nail colour?
