I’ll admit it. I was dragging my feet a bit on trying this polish. When the PISTOL polish February 2013 duo arrived in my mailbox I was so excited about Firecracker that I kind of over looked Smoking Gun. But over the weekend I was going out with the boy and decided on wearing a rather loud magenta dress. When it comes to matching my nail polish to my clothes I’m a bit crazy. I will not leave my house if my nails and clothes clash! So I needed a subtle yet not boring manicure. I finally settled on Smoking Gun and it was perfect!
Smoking Gun is a gray creme with pretty significant blue and purple undertones. For a much more entertaining description of this polish check out PISTOL polish’s description. But either way, it’s a very flattering gray that doesn’t pull yellow on the nail like some gray polishes can. If you need a comparison check out petites COLOR FEVER Vintage Gray. It is a much more yellow gray.
The formula is fantastic. I used just two coats in my swatches.
As always, there are more swatches below the jump 🙂
