Pistol Polish Subscription Box Review: Like a Boss and Helen Gurley Brown

Box and Literature with the Polishes

There's a monthly nail polish subscription box that I didn't know about? Color me shocked! Pistol Polish comes from Charlotte (North Carolina in the house!) and features 2 new 4-Free colors each month with free shipping. Each month is going to set you back $17.99 which might seem a bit steep for 2 polishes, but with free shipping, it lessens the blow. You can just go month-to-month, or buy a yearly subscription. You can skip a month by e-mailing them at info*at*pistolpolish*dot*com and they will accommodate you. They are very fast to reply, so don't worry about not hearing from them. 

Ok, now on to the polishes. Unfortunately I ended up getting the October box instead of a spring one. Oh, and look at the cute box and card that comes with each set with little stories about the polishes! And the little pistol charm on the polishes-so cute. It's the little things that set this box apart. Up first was Like a Boss which is an awesome name for a polish and is a purple/pink foil. At first I thought it looked like Orly's Rage, but I am way off on that. This one I think is unique to my collection and applied like a dream. The bottle reminds me of what Diamond Cosmetics bottles used to look like if you remember them. The second polish called Helen Gurley Brown is a chocolate brown crelly due to the squishiness you can see in just 2 coats. Again, no problems with the application. Overall, Like a Boss would be perfect to wear this time of year, or any time of year, really. Unfortunately I think I'm going to leave Helen Gurley Brown to later in the year when I want more earth tones (there's nothing wrong with the polish, I'm just into light colors right now). To find out more information on Pistol Polish, check out my second photo. What do you think? Is this a box you think you'll be subscribing to?
