Color of the Year Marsala

Spring Trends:: Marsala Mani

I’m no stranger to nail art and I’m no expert either, but the tutorials I post are pretty easy to execute and the result is always chic if I do say so myself. In honor of this year’s Pantone color of the year, marsala, I decided to mix things up. Spring is around the corner, though you can’t tell with the current weather in New York City. I think that the colors I selected will make the transition to everyone’s favorite season pretty smooth. I went to Sally Beauty Supply in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, to pick up supplies. They have 750 shades of nail polish in their nail studio and the FingerPaints line that is exclusive to Sally Beauty. I selected “I Knead Sourdough” from OPI (a color that comes close to marsala) and “Primitively Posh” and “Rockin’ Renaissance” from FingerPaints to complement it.


This season trend is to pair cooler and softer color choices with subtle warm tones following the soft balance found in nature. Though glitter isn’t found in nature, I personally think it should be. Check out my easy Marsala-Chevron Mani below, and be sure to tag me @chicvoyage and @SallyBeautySupply if you post your rendition on Instagram.

Color of the Year Marsala

Step 1:

2 light coats of FingerPaints “Primitively Posh”


Step 2:

Cut strips of tape and apply them diagonally on each nail. With light strokes, brush “I Knead Sourdough” on the middle of each nail and allow to dry. This will create a chevron stripe.

Gray Matter :: Gray Over the Knee Boots

Gray Over the Knee BootsYou would think I’d be sick of the color gray since that’s what the weather in New York has been for the past few month. Winter in the City isn’t as glamorous as my Instagram depicts. The white quickly become gray sludge that ruins your new boots. Hence the reason why I’m wearing my new suede boots from Just Fab indoors.
