So, who's been getting on board with Pantone's 2015 colour of the year and embracing Marsala?
I've been slow to dip into it myself so I'm taking baby steps with a nail polish sent to me for review from 5 Free salon nail brand FABY. FABY Is My Boss! (yes that's the shade name!) is described by the brand as a "classic berry-tinged mocha crème" and it's a deep red-brown - perhaps even a little plum - in keeping with the Marsala theme.
The formula was trouble-free and I had no issues with application as again the polish was just the right consistency to glide onto the nail without flooding or pooling and the neat, narrowish perfectly cut brush made placement easy, with full even coverage achieved in the usual two coats. I really put this polish to the test this time to see how durable it is and I remained chip-free until day 6. Not too bad.
Now onto the swatches, which have all been taken on another gloomy Melbourne day. It's like someone said 'Autumn's here!' and flicked the switch on our weather...
I love the versatility of this shade as it can appear to be either warm or cool depending on what it's worn with. Now that I'm in a Marsala frame of mind I need to go stash diving to see what other Marsala items I can come up with!
