NOTD: Claire's Dream Catcher

Indoors, flash
Hey Ladies,

Yesterday I painted my nails using Claire's Dreamcatcher, the infamous Chanel Jade dupe, although I do not own Jade so I cannot confirm if this is true or not. For the most part I like Dream catcher.

The colour is a faded light green with subtle green/blue shimmer that is not clearly visible in all lighting. I had expected it to be a bit more yellow and not ad faded, but I think it works well with my skin tone.

Application was okay, the formula was kind of thin and if not careful you may create some bald patches. Overall application wasn't horrible, I have had worse experiences. I applied 3 thicker coats and 1 last thin coat to even it out. I was surprised with dry time, I did my nails before I went to bed last night, and I thought for sure that since I used so many coats it would smudge in my sleep. It didn't to my surprise! So far the handful of Claire's polishes that I have tried have been good with dry time, even when applied before bed, this makes me want to buy more! (sigh... I already have so many untried Claire's polishes lol)

What do you think of this colour? If you have Chanel Jade do you think it is a dupe?


  1. Hey which Claires location did you go to? I've checked a few in toronto and I couldnt find it!

    Did you get it a while ago?

  2. I like this color! I don't have Jade, though, so I can't comment on the similarity.

  3. I went to the Claire's at the Promenade, but it was a while ago. I was lucky though, I picked up some other cool polishes there too all for $1 each :)

  4. Zara - thanks :) I wish it was a bit brighter

  5. I love this type of green! IF I would have the CHANEL Jade I would sell it on ebay for hundreds of dollars (no matter how much I would like the color)!

  6. This color is gorgeous. Green is my favorite color and this color just catched my eye!

    Check out my blog if you get a chance, I would love some feedback!


Don't be shy, I love reading your comments and feedback :)
