PISTOL polish Lock and Load

PISTOL polish Lock and Load coverThanks to Barielle My City Apartment I’ve had gray nails on the brain. I’m in the process of cleaning out my stash and I ran across Lock and Load. I’d never used it mostly because it’s a gray nail polish. It just doesn’t seem that exciting. But once I got Lock and Load on the nail I was in nail polish love.

Lock and Load is a blue leaning gray creme. No, it’s not the most interesting color ever. But! On the nail it looks like a modern twist on a neutral nail. I love it.

As always with Pistol polish polishes the formula is lovely. I used just two coats on my swatches.

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.

Make sure to check out the swatches under the jump.

I hope I’m not alone in my love of gray nail polish!

  1. It’s darker on your nails than I was expecting. Good for the office; could add Orly’s Mirrorball (yesterday’s post) to take it on the town. Could also add OPI’s Pirouette my Whistle to girly it up some…lots of potential, but I’m not sure I could wear it solo 🙂

What do you think?
