If you've been stalking Chanel Blue Boy but didn't want to pay the price, Boyfriend Jeans is the alternative. As far as I know it's only available as part of the Jeans Collection set, which sells for $20 for three polishes, whereas the Chanel original is currently selling for $60 on Amazon (seriously!?!) But for a mere $1.99 or less you can find Rain Storm at nearly any Walgreens, Rite Aid, or Target and have a close-enough shade of a lovely cloudy blue.
UPDATE: based on Nat's comment (below) about Revlon also duping the Les Jeans de Chanel collection I decided to swatch the two that I had on a nail wheel to compare them to the Nubar polishes. I didn't have Revlon Fashionista so I didn't compare anything to Nubar Dark Wash Jeans. Since this blog shows that Boyfriend Jeans and Blue Boy are identical (and that was really the only Chanel color I was actually interested in) I will take it on faith that the other two are dupes, too. So, while the Revlons don't match very well at all, they are still lovely colors all on their own merits.
