KBShimmer Men Are From Marsala Swatch and Review Pantone Color of the Year 2015
I'm sure you've all caught the buzz on the chosen color of the year from Pantone! Well, so has KBShimmer with Men Are From Mars-ala releasing Jan. 1, 2015!
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.
What are your thoughts on the Pantone shade? And do you think KBShimmer did a great job creating Men Are From Mars-ala to match it?
Men Are From Mars-ala will be available Jan 1, 2015 for $8.75 available internationally at www.HarlowandCo.org and www.KBShimmer.com.
All the best,

Great color that is.ReplyDelete
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. <3ReplyDelete
To be honest, marsala isn't my favorite color, but the holo in this makes it really pretty! Great swatches.ReplyDelete
Kbshimmer won Marsala of the year with this one, so getting this!!!ReplyDelete
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)ReplyDelete
Beautiful! I can't wait to try mine! Looks great on you!ReplyDelete
I'm not a fan of Marsala, but the polish is lovely. Looks like it would make an incredible autumn polish!ReplyDelete
I love this shade, and I'm loving the color of the year!ReplyDelete
This is a gorgeous colour. I know some people are not a fan of Marsala, but it's a pretty shade, especially for polish.ReplyDelete
Pretty!! I wasn't too thrilled when they announced the color, but this is actually a nice take on it. Leave it to KB Shimmer :)ReplyDelete
wow so lovely!ReplyDelete
your nails look great, :)
I hope you'll have a wonderful Christmas and I wish you a happy and creative 2015!
Oooh I think that is beautiful!!ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
