Just in time for Pantone's color of the year 2015, Men are From Mars-ala brings the rich, deep brick red color to your nails. With a little flair of course. I know most people won't get excited about the thought of brick red, especially in a nail polish. I tend to like this type of shade as an accent color in a neutral pallet for a subtle pop of color. Men are From Mars-ala is so much more than a subtle pop of color if you ask me. This earthy red-brown shade kicks it up a notch with the addition of its holographic shimmer.
The application was smooth as butter on a hot roll with this beauty. The first coat had more opacity to it that I was expecting. Not enough to be a 1 coat wonder, but based on my experience with holographic polishes I expected a much sheerer coat. Shown here is 2 coats plus top coat.
Normally I don't test the wear time with a nail polish, but I liked this color so much that I've worn it for a week. In fact, it's still on my nails as I type this. There is some slight tip wear on all of my fingers, and I do mean slight. On my right thumb, it has chipped a little where I banged it while trying to jump start my car on Monday morning. I guess -28 wind chill was too much for my battery to handle. I know it was too much for me to handle! Talk about BRRRRR!!!!
