The dark side of polish, that is! Butter LONDON's incredible "glitter fusion" Black Knight is a multicolored glitter polish magically suspended in a black jelly base. Black Knight could have been inspired by the city lights reflecting in the river, don't you think?
The first time I wore Black Knight, I needed (3) coats of it to be opaque. Yikes. However, I understand that the black needs to have a jelly consistency so that the beautiful magenta and turquoise glitter can shine through and doesn't get buried. The easy solution is to wear black underwear (tee hee hee). My choice is Wet & Wild Black Crème because not only is it a very deep black, it is a one coat wonder. With a black base, I only needed (1) coat of Black Knight.
Black and really dark nail polish looks trendy and chic, but only when it's applied flawlessly. I'm overly careful and terrified of cuticle pooling which is how I ended up with the giant gaps :/ Oh well, practice makes perfect!
Black Knight is a gritty polish and swallowed (2) coats of Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat. Nom nom nom.
Butter LONDON polishes are $14. In New York City, my favorite retailers of Butter polishes are C.O. Bigelow, Ricky's, and Windsor Pharmacy. There are many more! Here is a list of retailers in New York City that carry Butter nail polish. If you want to buy Black Knight online, I recommend Nordstrom because they offer free shipping :)
