I tend to not buy orange-y nail polishes because, well, everyone things they look better on people with a bit of a tan. Since I am firmly in the fair skin camp, I just stayed away from that section of the polishes. Until about a month ago. I decided to pick up Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure in Fiery Island. I was looking for some good summer colors and thought I would give it a whirl.
Fiery Island is a true orange. Think of the orange crayon in your first grade box of Crayola's (Remember the 64 pack with the sharpener in the back? Yeah, those were awesome. There's just something about a new box of crayons.) it is that color orange. As a side note, excuse my non-perfect manicure. I'm just not one of those beauty bloggers that's going to have perfect looking nails. I'm not patient enough for that shiz nor do I want to spend the necessary amount of time to get flawless results. Sorry.
As for the Complete Salon Manicure formula in general, it's a really great drugstore polish. It stays well and has a wide brush which makes application easier. If you use the Seche Vite top coat, this could last you a solid week before it starts to look a little ragged.
I'm glad I went against the grain and got a bright orange polish. Even though I don't and never will have a bronzed tan, I think it still looked great and is a fun summer color. Moral of the story, don't always listen to what "they" say. If you think it looks fun, just go for it!
