Colors By Llarowe 'Ben Affleck Is Sheila's Homeboy'

Hello! I recently took part in an Easter swap through Facebook, in which everyone was matched with a secret partner with a budget of £15. My lovely swap partner Helen sent me a parcel full of goodies. One of the polishes I received was Colors By Llarowe 'Ben Affleck Is Sheila's Homeboy' from the Krispy Kreme Dreams collection. I have this to show you today. Read on for swatches and more info!

Colors By Llarowe 'Ben Affleck Is Sheila's Homeboy'

'Ben Affleck Is Sheila's Homeboy' is an intense linear holographic red. The formula was pretty much perfect - I had absolutely no issues. It was so smooth and easy to apply and opaque in just one coat! I did add a second coat on my thumb to see if it would deepen the colour, but it didn't make a noticeable difference. Below is one coat with topcoat.

To show you how intense the holographic is, I've taken an additional picture with flash.

What do you think? I think it's gorgeous - thank you Helen! Helen was also my secret partner for February's Valentines swap where she sent me my first Colors By Llarowe polish, 'Young Turks' (post here). I loved that one, and I love this one too!

You can find 'Ben Affleck Is Sheila's Homeboy' on Rainbow Connection (UK) for £9.50 here.

Hope to see you in the next post!
