PISTOL polish January 2014: Blue Bonnie & Bonus Season

PISTOL polish January 2014 CoverYay! My first PISTOL polish duo of 2014! And I have to say….this may be my favorite yet.

This duo actually arrived before the New Year. It was a nice little surprise and eased my post Ihavenomorepresents Christmas blues.

When I opened this month’s box I knew I was going to love Blue Bonnie. It is right up my alley AND it’s a jelly. AMAZING. I was a little less sure about Bonus Season. I told Katie that I thought it looked like a better version of OPI Metallic 4 Life. I’m happy to report it’s a MUCH better version of that polish and I do quite like it.

For more info on PISTOL polish check out their website. If  you are a fellow Charlottean PISTOL polish can be found at The Boulevard at South End.

Below the jump are swatches and reviews of both polishes. (PS: these polishes look fab together as well as on their own!)

Blue Bonnie: Honestly, I absolutely ADORE this nail polish. As soon as I saw it int he bottle I could not wait to get it on my nails! Blue Bonnie is a bright cobalt blue jelly that applies beautifully in three coats. The jelly finish is perfect and dries to a super shiny finish. Plus, the wear time is AMAZING. This is definitely in the running for my favorite blue nail polish in this color range.

Bonus Season: I’ll admit this looks a tad bit ugly in the bottle. But it looks fabulous on the nails! Bonus season has large silver glitter and smaller yellow gold glitter suspended in a sheer(ish) black jelly base. I did use three coats in my swatches and I know this will make some people cringe but the end result is TOTALLY worth it.

  1. Blue Bonnie is STUNNING!!! I just love it!

  2. Pretty amazing blue! I like the other one too actually!

  3. The blue is too brightly blue for me, but does look great with your skin tone. Pistol is fabulous, but I will resist putting it on my wish list only because I think I might be able to get the same effect using a brown-black w/gold shimmer polish that I already have (“Coal” by CK1) and a silver glitter topcoat… at any rate, it’s worth a try!
