Sally Hansen Pedal to the Metal

After spotting the limited edition polishes from Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure collection, I actually started looking at their core line.  This one just popped out from the display. 
Pedal to the Metal is a pretty purple/silver frost.  I have to say that I was more impressed with it in the bottle though.  Once I put it on it just didn't look right on me.  It's a frost, and has a tendency to show brush strokes, so you're going to want to be careful about that.


There is a slight shimmer that I only noticed in the bottle.  My camera picked it up in the sunlight, but I didn't really see it.  The brush for the Complete Salon Manicure collection is VERY full and holds a lot of polish.  You have to be very careful when applying that you don't get it all over the place.  I did notice that it was more stiff in Hidden Treasure and therefore easier to use.  I'm not sure of all of the limited edition polishes are like that because I haven't used them yet.


What do you think?  Do any of you have this as well?

Thanks for stopping by...have a great Wednesday!

This looks great on you! I probably wouldn't get it, though, because I don't like frosts much and I try not to get them unless I really love the color.

Thanks! So many people told me that they liked it...maybe I judged too soon when I said I didn't like it on me as much as in the bottle. lol

I was so excited when I bought this, and then so disappointed when I put it on....somehow I thought it would be more foil-y :(

Yeah, that's how I felt too...I thought it would have more oomph.

Thank you! My nails all grow differently, so it's really hard keeping them uniform looking. It is a pretty color...I think I just wanted something more out of it..lol

This is my favorite neutral polish. The lighter shades just don't look good on me, and I like the hint of glimmer.
