matchy matchy

I'd like a nail polish the exact same color as my new pistol grips...
but I have no idea how I am going to go into the store and compare shades.

Take the grips off and take them with you if its your carry gun put the factory grips back on for the day you go to the store.

That's why God invented digital cameras with high-res zooms :)

Darn. There's another genius in the world beside myself. Well done, ajdshootist.

I was thinking you could just walk into the store, draw your gun, slam it on the makeup counter and say: "Match this. Now."

Or not ;)

If you trust your printer, you could print off a color wheel, indicating the color that matches your grips then use that sheet of paper. It should get you close. This site allows you to change the percents of different colors to get as exact a match as your eyes can perceive. Printing should let you get your match, or yu could just ask for the color by its index.

If she did that, she'd be bound to say "'Scuse me while I whip this out"...

How about instead of the grips, you match the bluing? Surely some cosmetics company has a Gun Blue shade? I mean it's a slam dunk.

The reasonable answer to this of course is to buy every pink shade possible that's in the general category of your grips.

because really.. you can't have too many.
