But dusting those old polishes off didn't seem quite as fun to me, so when I saw a Marsala-esque shade in the new-for-2015 Sally Hansen Xtreme Wears at my local Rite Aid recently, that baby came straight home with me.
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Color in Mauve Over
New Permanent Shade
(retail: $2.99, 0.40 oz)
I realize that in some areas, and depending on the retailer, Xtreme Wears can retail for $4 or more, but I've seen them as low as $2.49 at Target, so I used $2.99 as the median price.

Below are some swatches taken in bright, regular and low lighting. I used two coats of Mauve Over and no top coat for these photos:
I had absolutely no issues with Mauve Over. It's one of those signature Sally Hansen cremes that has a great consistency (not too thin, not too thick), and it rolls onto the nails like butter. Dry-time was good for both coats and this polish dried to a nice, shiny finish.
I realize there are a zillion Marsala-esque nail color shades to choose from at the drugstores, beauty supply stores, etc., but if you like the Xtreme Wear formula (which you know I do), I think this is a great choice.
Do you own any Marsala-type nail colors? If so, what are some of your favorites?
