Pistol Polish March 2014 Swatches and Review

I decided to sign up for Pistol Polish after seeing it on another blogger’s page. I can’t remember whose blog I originally saw it on! So if you know who I’m talking about, leave it in the comments!

Don’t forget to enter my March giveaway by visiting here.

Pistol Polish is one of many monthly polish subscription services. It is $17.99 per month and you get two polishes every month. That is a little pricey but I wanted to try them to see if the quality and colors made up for it.

For March 2014, Pistol Polish sent us a darkish green (perfect for St Patty’s Day!) and a white shimmer topper.

Part of their shtick is that each polish comes with a handgun charm. They have gotten a little criticism for this. Their motto and business philosophy is to empower women.

This is Pistol Polish Knock ‘Em Dead. This is two coats. This went on very smoothly and self-leveled well. The brush was a little too small and stiff for my preferences.

Here is a rarely seen photo of my right hand. Please forgive the messiness…my right hand is always a little messy!!! This is one coat of Pistol Polish Top of the Class over Knock ‘Em Dead. This is actually quite opaque for one coat! It was a little thick, which explains the opaqueness. Obviously I have the same criticism of this brush like I did for the green one.

My current take on this subscription service: I’m going to stay subscribed for at least one more month. I’m not super thrilled about the colors this month, but the quality of the polishes is quite good. I admit, that I do think that the gun charms are fun. I will see how this wears for 24 hours. (I can’t stand to have the same mani on for more than a day. Hahaha). If it’s chip-central, then I will update this post and let you know. If it wears for my usual 24-hours, then I will stay subscribed for at least another month.
