A browned wine shade, Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2015 is Marsala. It’s so 90s, like Brenda Walsh’s lipstick on 90210. And given that we have similar coloring, I wore the heck out of it myself. In fact, I recently discovered an old tube of Estee Lauder marsala-colored lipstick at the bottom of backpack purse, buried in a trunk with some things from college. Yes, I said backpack purse. It was green suede and I wore it everywhere!
Longtime readers know that I host a March Madness-style nail polish battle for the Color of the Year, last year it was Radiant Orchid Madness. I will be doing that again with Marsala but if you just can’t wait to get this color on your digits, I have seven permanent nail polish colors you can get right now!
