2 Minute Review: Pistol Polish

Because we love nail polish, and because we love getting fun packages in the mail, and because we cannot resist a good deal, we recently signed up as members of the Pistol Polish program.

If you’re unfamiliar with this subscription plan, it works like many others, in that you pay a flat fee ($17.99 per month) and receive one package, containing two polishes, each month from Pistol Polish. 

For our first month with the program, we got two super fun colors, both of which that we fell in love with immediately. 

Being delightful darlings from the Cowboy State, we’re especially enamored with the little guns on each bottle.  SO CUTE!

Now…for the color details!  First off, a fabulous bright pink color, which is called Stick Up.  It’s the perfect balance of bright pink, without feeling TOO flashy/wild.

Secondly, we got CrimiNAIL, an unbelievably cool gunmetal/silver color.  We are a little obsessed with this shade…it’s so sparkly/classy/fabulous/fun and it goes with anything!

We put these awesome colors to the test last night to see if they lived up to our expectations.  The first thing we noticed when using the polishes was that they have a thinner consistency than some other polishes that we’re most used to.  This isn’t a bad thing, necessarily, but it’s something to be aware of if you prefer a thicker, “one coat does the trick” polish.  Neither shade offered full coverage with just one coat…but we both felt good about the coverage after a second coat.

Another thing that we found, after we were done painting, was that these polishes do take a little longer to dry than some mainstream polishes.  Again, we don’t see this as a problem…as the gorgeous color output is totally worth it…but if you’re going to use these polishes, make sure you have a little extra time to allow them to dry fully.  With a high shine topcoat (and a little glitter…because let’s be honest…we’re always going to throw in some glitter)…we could not be happier with the results we got!

We’re super excited to be members of the Pistol Polish program, and can’t wait to see what colors we get to play with next month!
