 Celebrate the New Year and Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year with KBShimmer! “Men are from Mars-ala” is an earthy, red-brown shade that will make a fresh new addition to any neutral nail palette. Worn outdoors or in bright light, Men are from Mars-ala features a linear holographic and when indoors, this shade is rich and warm – just like a glass of Marsala wine should be!

 This unique shade initially didn't excite me. But I've grown to love it. It looks quite different in different lighting, at times more red than brown, sometimes taking on an orange-ish hue. It photographed too red for me so I did do some altering of the color in the editing phase trying to get it as true to life as I could.

 This is 2 easy coats (perfect formula) and no top coat.

  1. Hi Victoria, some colors are more "challenging" to love than others (I adored Radiant Orchid!) -- but I do think the nail polish community will be developing lovable shades of Marsala, like KBShimmer's holo shown here! Thanks for the pretty swatches and I'm so happy you're back in the swing with your blogging. <3

  4. I'm still not sold on this color as "Color of the Year" but this polish looks gorgeous on you! (*Side note: do people actually drink marasla wine? Seems a little too sweet to me, hehe)

  11. I wasn't a huge fan when the color was announced either, but it definitely has it's place. This polish looks like it would be beautiful on so many different skin tones too!

  12. I totally agree about some colors being harder to adore. I was ALL ABOUT Radiant Orchid, if only it could have had a 2 year run, LOL!
