Dupe for Chanel Jade. Well actually, it's not really a dead on dupe since this has more yellow in it compared to Jade. However, I read on MUA that a fellow nail polish fanatic has found *the* recipe to franken Dream Catcher into an exact dupe. I think it was something along the lines of adding 18 drops of white creme and 1/8 bottle of clear polish. (I looked it up again it's actually Missnono @Black Nail Polish and Lip Gloss! Please check out her blog if you haven't already! She's got amazingly gorgeous nails!) I have yet to try this, but I don't own Jade so I wouldn't be able to compare anyways. And OH MY! I just wanna slap myself for passing on Jade! I totally had the opportunity to get it when it first came out but I didn't! Why Wan?! WHY?!?>:(

Anyway, I don't really like the formula on Dream Catcher as it is rather streaky and hard to get even. I think I used four coats for the swatches if I remember correctly. Despite its mediocre application, I still bought another two bottles for back-up the other day...you know, just in case right? Lol!

Lastly, here is an excellent comparison post on Chanel Jade, Dream Catcher, and another polish by Charlotte Russe (also named Jade) by Meganchair @Little Music Boxes! Looveeee her blog!!! She has the prettiest cuticles and the best clean-up technique! I think she has a tutorial on it too so please go check it out! =)
