Hello Loves! I'm sure most of you have heard that Pantone named Marsala as the color of the year for 2015. I don't know about you, but I'm just not thrilled with the color. To me, it screams boring...and it reminds me of colors my Grandmother used to wear. Not quite red, not quite brown, not quite mauve. Just Blah. It might be ok as a lipstick color, but I wasn't excited about the polish choices that we would be seeing this year. That is, until KBShimmer showed us the newly released Men Are From Mars-ala. She is proof positive that holo can make any color gorgeous. ;)
I seriously love this polish. So much so that I've worn it three times already. No joke, three times and I've only had it for a few weeks! The base is most definitely a match for Pantone 18-1483 aka Marsala. But the holo gives it so much dimension I could just squeal!
Of course, I couldn't stop with just one photo. Hello beautiful holo! Have I mentioned how much I love holographic polishes? Or how well KBShimmer has mastered holographic creations?
Men Are From Mars-ala isn't just a gorgeous take on the Pantone color of the year for 2015. It's also a dream to apply. This is two coats over clear sculpted gel nails. It is perfectly opaque in two coats!
You know I couldn't resist adding a little stamping, right? I mean, this is the third time I've worn it in less than 15 days.
Gah! Look at that gorgeous holographic effect! Even the black stamping doesn't slow it down. The stamp does darken the color a bit, but the rainbow is strong as ever.
Ok, ok...the details. The stamping polish is Mundo de Unas black and the image is from Cici&Sisi 12 from Cici & Sisi Set 2 . Wanna see it a little closer? Of course you do!
