If I could remember who first posted about these nubar polishes being a dupe for the Chanel collection I would hug you so hard.  The blues in the nubar Jeans Collection are just spot-on — when I first started putting them on the formula read less creamy than a lot of my other nubars but after two coats that didn’t matter, the finish was perfect (save for the middle one where I screwed that up all on my own) and the colors are completely denim.  The darkest (on the index) is Dark Wash Jeans, aka my personal favorite; the middle is Faded Jeans, aka “that same light blue from your stepdad’s inappropriately short summer cut offs”; then the middle ground of Boyfriend Jeans (awwwww….) on the ring finger.

The pinky has a sponge of the lighter two over the dark blue to create a faded denim effect, but all of them have dotted lines in OPI Bling Dynasty to mimic blue jean stitching (done hastily/in a “I’m not that worried about it” mood as I was on my way out the door).  Really happy with this collection, especially at a pricepoint so much lower than the Chanel alternatives — thanks nubar!

    Where’s the jordache logo?: I remember starting highschool and was so proud of my skintight jordache jeans-i thought I was the sh*t. Of course I wasn’t but man I thought so! So glad I didn’t pay for the Chanel!

  5. These are great! Great idea too!

    ohmigosh I totally forgot about the Jordache! Having the Izod logo was a big deal for awhile too. I’m pretty sure growing up in the 80s was the best is all I’m sayin’, kids can keep their new fangled technojunk and 3D stuff, pass me the jelly shoes please.
