Sally Hansen ~ #545 Firey Island

Sally Hansen ~ #545 Firey Island
Bright orange crème

I was in the mood for something bright today. I’m not a girl who lets the seasons decide which colours to wear.

I used two easy coats of Firey Island. It’s a nice, bright orange and the formula is really good. Sally Hansen’s polishes have impressed me quality-wise lately.

I made dots on them because dots are cheerful. I used two stamping polishes from El Corazón for my dots: “Red” and “Yellow Neon”. I wish I had made the dots white and yellow instead, but hey ho, mistakes do happen and it’s all a part of the learning curve here.

This is my final manicure including topcoat.

I think my stamping polishes might have become too thick for anything other than stamping so next time I’m going to use regular polishes for my dots.

This is two coats of Firey Island on its own; no topcoat yet. It’s a lovely orange, I like it a lot.

Here are the three polishes I used.

I love the orange but I wasn’t really happy with the manicure as a whole. The red didn’t really work on the orange. It’s not the first time I’ve make that mistake but I’ll see if I can remember it in future haha! :D
