OPI Pedal Faster, Suzi!

I'm super bummed.


I wanted this polish sooo bad and was tickled pink (pun intended) I had it waiting for me to swatch after seeing how beautifully it looked on so many blogs (especially when Marisa posted it; I think I actually drooled a lil bit.)  Anyways, the day I swatched it, I was quite disappointed that fireworks didn't fly out of the bottle the way I expected.


Instead I have a very simple and delicate shimmery light pink.  That's it.  Just a sweet pink. I blame the fact that this pink almost bleeds into my skin tone.  Oh, the traumas and travails of being translucent...


This is three coats.



Yeah, yeah.  It's pretty, I know.  But I wanted that pop, you know?  Even pale shimmers can do it but Pedal Faster just fizzled on me.  Blah, Suzi.  Just blah.


Hmm...maybe if I layered it??

  1. This is pretty! It's not something I'd head over heels in love with though but I think it's just because I don't wear pinks that often and it doesn't pop out at me like other colors I've come across.

  2. Sorry you were disappointed! You are right, it is still pretty! It's so annoying when a polish is disappointing.

  3. Awww! Is this from the "great pink phase of 2012"?! It looks gorgeous on your cool toned skintone. But it does suck that Suzi was rather blah.

  4. I hear that. For a non-pink lover, it's not the best polish. And as a pink lover myself, it's still not wowing me.

  5. It was indeed. Total letdown to end the season. But onto the next "great phase of 2012"! Let's see what I'm randomly obsessed with next!

  13. It's okay. It's not the worst color in the world.

  14. I laughed out loud when I read "the worst kind of heartbreak." Sarah, you are spot on!

  15. Yeah, which is the biggest shame because that was the one collection this year that I absolutely lemmed from the minute I saw the press release for. Oh well. You live and learn.

  16. It is a good polish to have when you want something slightly sparkly on but no too much color.

  17. It popped on you! I LOVED it on you!

  18. I agree about this polish. Pretty, but not fabulous.

  19. Hmm yea, maybe layering it would be better! Pretty, but it needs a bam! hehe

  20. I bought all of the shimmers from this collection, I probably would've had better luck with the cremes.
