The Garden of Colour ‘Jungle Run’

Lately my collection of greens seems to be expanding at quite a rate, so far though I don’t have anything close to a dupe for this beauty though, ‘Jungle Run’ by The Garden Of Colour from vivalanails.co.uk. It’s a brand I’ve never heard of before, so I was quite keen to try it out.
