The Jeans Collection by Nubar

Hi dear readers, hope you are all doing well these days :) The Jeans collection by Nubar is similar to the much hyped Chanel Les Jeans collection, similar in that it basically dupes the three shades completely. I rarely shell out the dough for a Chanel lacquer so I wasn't too interested in the three seemingly ordinary blue polishes, even though there was significant hubbub before their release. I was more than happy to see more affordable dupes come out soon after. Nubar is a brand that I whole-heartedly adore for their bottle shape, color selection, and formula, so I was excited to see their take on the "denim" collex.

Faded Jeans is a light sky blue shimmer. I have to say I don't own any jeans this color and if I did it was probably back when I was in middle school haha. This is two-ish coats, it was a tad streaky. Beautiful subtle shimmer, though gosh.

Boyfriend Jeans is a gorgeous grayed out cornflower blue. It's a perfect jelly crème formula, two coats. This is probably around the color of most of the jeans I wear, standard and casual. Two coats.

Dark Wash Jeans is a deep blue jelly crème, almost peacock in color. I wore this for almost a week, it is so gorj! This reminds me of my deeper colored "nice" jeans, haha. This is my favorite of the collection. Two coats.

The retail price for the set of three is $19.99 on bynubar.com which is cheaper than one bottle of the similarly colored Chanels. That equals awesome in my opinion ;)

  3. Beautiful swatches Kellie! Faded Jeans is pretty streaky, but that doesn't stop me from wanting this entire collection! It's on my "must-buy" list for sure. The fact that you can get three polishes for less than the price of one Chanel is definitely a pro. ^_^

  7. Glad your back. I hope it won't be so long between posts. I'd love to have the Chanel's but I'm not going to spend that much money. I can get the Nubar which are have a better formula. The light shade is pretty. I had a pair of jeans that shade many many years ago. No more for me! Love the next two especially Dark Wash Jeans. That's the best of the bunch. I have to pick them up!
