Last September, Chanel released a trio of blue nail polishes for Fashion’s Night Out. They were $29 apiece, and available in extremely limited distribution. Nearly concurrently, Nubar released a trio of blue nail polishes called The Jeans collection. Various swatches across the web convinced me that the two trios were basically identical, and I concluded that I would rather spend $20 for three polishes than $30 for one.
As we’ve already discussed extensively, I am enjoying a “blue period” when it comes to my nails. So I decided to start in the middle of the set, with Boyfriend Jeans. It’s a muted, Jasper-Johns-Flag, Colorado-sky, Israeli-coat-of-arms, faded-paint-on-a-fence blue creme. What do you think?
I’ve heard a rumor that Chanel will be rereleasing Coco Blue, Blue Boy, and Blue Rebel this summer (giving me another chance to compare them to my Nubar shades).
Nubar’s polishes are available on their website.
