Holo Humpday: KBShimmer Men Are From Mars-ala

Hello my sweeties! Welcome to yet another Holo Humpday! Aren’t you impressed that I haven’t exhausted my holo stash yet?! I have quite the collection, so I definitely have enough to last for many more Holo Humpdays to come! Today’s featured holo is KBShimmer’s Men Are From Mars-ala.

As I’m sure you all know, Marsala was chosen as Pantone’s color of the year for 2015. When I initially saw swatches of this, I was not impressed. It seemed the kind of color that was very big for elderly ladies. But then KBShimmer put out their version, and oh did I change my mind! Men Are From Mars-ala is such a beautiful version of Marsala.

I had held off on buying this since I have so many red holos, but I’m so glad I gave in! It’s a more brick red with brown tones that leans orange-red in certain lighting. And it’s different from most of my other red holos!

I think the above swatch is probably the most accurate in terms of what Mars-ala looks like in most lighting.

The formula is perfection – it covers in 2 easy coats, and the linear holo is strong even in low lighting. I think this polish is such a beautiful earthy red! It’s a sexy red with a modern twist, and I think it would look good on everyone no matter your skin tone!

What do you think? Do you have this stunner? If not, you need it in your life!!
