Happy New Year, everyone!! I hope everyone had a great New Year's Eve! Sadly, everyone in our house was sick with the flu during Christmas and was still recuperating on New Year's. We're mostly better now, though! :)
Now on to the first post of the year! Let's talk about the Pantone Color of the Year 2015, Marsala. When this was announced a couple of months ago, I was very leery about the color. With Radiant Orchid in 2014, I bought everything I could get my hands on (and could afford) that was the color of the year. Marsala looked like a color that I wouldn't be able to pull off with my skin tone. But then Christy at KBShimmer created Men Are From Mars-ala and completely changed my mind!! I don't care if it doesn't go with my skin tone.. I'm gonna rock the COTY!! ;)
Men Are From Mars-ala is an earthy red-brown linear holo. Shown is 2 coats of MAFM using Ellagee Grip and KBShimmer Clearly on Top. Application was smooth as buttah!
Then I decided to see how this would look matte! I used Hard Candy Matte-ly In Love and this is just beautiful matte! Now I have the sudden urge to matte all of holos!
What do you think? Are you a fan of the Color of the Year?
