Marsala was announced as the Pantone Colour of the Year for 2015, described as, "a naturally robust and earthy red wine." To celebrate this fashion-forward hue, SpaRitual came out with a Marsala-inspired polish called Fall In Love for this winter season. This is a metallic brick red shimmer with micro glitter that almost gives off a green and orange duochrome effect. It was a challenging shade to photograph as it appears a lot more orange in these pictures than in real life. Fall In Love is actually more of a subdued, dusty warm orange-y red.
The formulation on the polish itself was a bit thicker than OPI, comparable to a thicker China Glaze or Orly. These swatches were done with 3 coats to achieve maximum opacity. You could definitely get away with 2, but I just wanted to see how the colour would build up with another layer. It didn't make much of a difference other than introducing more of the duochrome effect (and therefore more visible brushstrokes).
Fall In Love is available on SpaRitual's website and retail's for $12. Overall, I think this is a very trendy shade and is quite unique to any other shades that I have in my collection. Definitely a welcome addition!
