Old NOTD: Claire's Dream Catcher

This polish satisfied my lemming for Chanel Jade. Thank goodness. (I also swapped for the Charlotte Russe Jade, which I hear is even more dupey. But that's still in my untrieds box[es].)

Claire's Dream Catcher

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this polish. Claire's has been severely hit-or-miss for me: some polishes are magnificent and others make me want to stab my eye with the nail polish brush. (Ouch. The image.) I've heard a lot of complaints about this polish being hard to apply but it applied beautifully for me: it was even a little bit on the thin side and needed three coats. Either way, it went on like a dream. The above is two coats with Diamont topcoat; the picture is about a day into wear (with no shrinkage or tipwear). Such a lovely minty green with green shimmer. I don't want to backup polishes that often but I kind of have the urge to buy a backup of this one.
