Chilli, one of Barry M's latest additions to their Gelly range, is the base for this manicure. As you can see, it's a rich, wine red colour. The above swatches are two coats with a layer of top coat on top as well. Two coats are needed as the first coat can be quite thin (as you can see around some of my edges) so it's not one for people in a rush but it really is a gorgeous colour. I used Crush, from the Matte collection, to do some giraffe print around the tip and side. Crush can be used as a Marsala shade by itself, a darker alternative, but I loved pairing the two together. As Crush is a Matte polish, you can leave the top coat and have the cool contrast of glossy versus matte but I chose to top coat everything to get everything dry.
Since these polishes are £3.99, they're very affordable for most people and are probably the most accessible Marsala shades for everyone that are actually worth buying, but if you have more suggestions, let me know! Like I said, I'll be doing some more posts featuring Marsala shades so if you have anything you'd like to see featured, let me know in the comments below and be sure to be following, subscribing and liking all the sites below, until next time :)
