I know nail bloggers are giving a collective sigh of despair as Dior are so on the tail end of this trend with their crackle polish. However, Golden Jungle Nail Effect is genuinely a brilliant crackle; probably the best I’ve used because it even gives visible texture as well. If you want a wider, more croc-style crackle, the tip is to use a generous slick of polish, but if you like it a bit finer, more snakey, then use less. I’ve got a bit of a mix of both – I’d like to say by design, but more by luck!
I did notice that it takes really quite a long time to crackle up – about ten to fifteen minutes to be finished with the cracking effect so don’t start this if you’re in a rush!

I must admit, nails posts aren’t usually my thing (apart from nail care of course) but they look amazing!! I’m going to convince my BFF to buy this combo 🙂
I know people are sick to death of crackle, but it actually does look very much like a handbag, which I assume is the intention. It is actually very lovely. x
this looks amazing! best crackle yet 😀
Gorgeous! <3 I need these nail polishes!
It’s like a classy, expensive looking version of crackle. I agree with the person above, it does look like a handbag! x
Love this effect! Definitely looks more expensive than the standard high st versions.
Nice colour combo! Ciate are doing something similar to this x
Oh no, not more crackle.
