KB Shimmer Men are From Mars - Ala

**press sample** **affiliate links**

The new Pantone colour of the Year is Marsala. Finally, a selection that I can wrap my brain around and get my teeth into. 

KB Shimmer has created a gorgeous polish to celebrate the Colour of the Year. Men are From Mars - Ala is a rich, warm red with a hint of pink, a dash of brown and a beautiful linear holographic effect running through it. Yes! Take a look. 



This manicure is two coats of KB Shimmer Men are From Mars - Ala. I love how flattering this polish is to my skin tone. The formula is absolutely scrumptious. Fluid but not too thin, it flows off of the wide brush, sits sweetly down where it is placed, whispers up the nail without complaint. There is no streaking, dragging, pulling. This polish doesn't run, pool, bubble or give any other kind of trouble. Application was a true pleasure and cleanup was just a little bit of fussbudget refinement.

I applied Men are From Mars - Ala over a couple of coats of ridge filling base coat (this polish doesn't cope well with my ridges) and topped it with KB Shimmer Clearly on Top Quick Dry Top Coat. Dry time was pretty good. Wear time, for me, was impressive... Four full days before the manicure failed and I had to remove it. 

I am in love with this polish! It is gorgeous. It is holo. It is red. It is holo. Yeah.
