My Black Knight

Pin It
Hey guys,

How were your weekends?
I'm super tired because one of the dogs kept me up late crying about being in his crate. Then he woke me up at 4 or 5am so I took him outside, went back to sleep only to have him wake me up again at 6.30am to play. By 8am I got back to sleep and didn't have to get up til 10.30, but still I wanted to get into bed at 4pm and sleep til morn!!!
How can something so little has so much power?!!! I'm thinking kids might NOT be in my future, haha.

I found Butter London The Black Knight at Farmers last week (the last bottle left and someone had tested it judging by the broken seal and glitter on the neck :( ) and snapped it up quick, fast!!!!!!!

The Black Knight - sunlight

The Black Knight - shade

The Black Knight - lamp

I love love love this polish - horrible formula IMO, but amazing to look at!
The Black Knight has a black base (NOT jelly) and is filled with silver/gold (can't tell which but it is prob gold, might be both?) micro glitter, and small pink, blue & red glitter. It dries matte and gritty :( I used 3 coats in this photo but 2 was probably enough opacity wise. I just think 3 gives more depth & intensity to the glitteriness!! The formula was a pain in the butt to spread out evenly. It was just a case of too much glitter, not enough base - too dry. I think BL ought to have made the base jelly like, could have solved the problem. Anyway after 2 coats of Seche Vite it was smooth and shiny & well worth the effort.

This looks fantastic in the sun, in the dark, & indoors. You can't stop staring at your super cool nails!

Removal is not fun!! I'd use foil method if I were you.



  1. Oooh this is a nice color, too bad about the formula. Do you think it dried out a bit from the testing? I've never thinned a nail polish successfully, but maybe that would help? I love all that glitter though.

  2. could be right, but I think i've seen negative reviews about the formula. truth be told it probably isn't so bad for a glitter, but I've been spoilt by some nice jelly based ones lately!!!
