As everyone knows the “official” Pantone colour of the year is marsala – a rich red brown. Think red wine, stews, and snuggling up under warm blankets on a cold night – it’s a very comforting colour. While it’s not winter here, and not cold, we are smack bang in the middle of the wet season where we have hard and scary rains and winds. I’m rather in need of comfort.
This manicure is Scarab by Illamasqua. With a shiny top coat it’s dark and sophisticated vampy dark red, but with a matte coat it’s warm and velvety like your grandfathers smoking jacket.
