Ordered a pair in brown karagrain and received a dark brown cream polish and a small brush. The cream polish is branded Carmina, but I think it might be Famaco? The listed ingredients are the same and the jar/lid are identical and stack perfectly.
If you could show us some pictures of your Karangrein shoes, it would be informative and I would be very gratefull !

Here you are! The light is poor (they appear lighter and show more depth in daylight), but this shows off the texture well, I think. This is 80184 in brown Karangrain on the Oscar last with a Victoria sole, supposedly a chestnut edge and a storm welt.

As you can see the grain is uneven, which I like, and lighter, though still present on the toe. There is a small stain on the right shoe, but it takes a close eye, otherwise they are perfect. Good job @Carmina !

I took nearly the same but violet lining for me and without stormwelt.
The Karangrein looks perfect !

Hi Carmina. Can you please do a comparison for me between Oscar, Soller and Forrest lasts?

Gracias!

Gorgeous. Did you select double leather soles for this pair?
Thanks! Yes, these are double leather soles. I also requested a light chestnut edge, which turned out even better than I expected. I wanted something just a little bit more finished looking than natural but I didn't want it to be anywhere near as dark as chestnut usually seems to be. Carmina should really consider offering this color as a standard option, in my opinion.
