The Black Knight

  Here is a really fun manicure I wore for several days last week - I just couldn't get enough of it!  I probably would have worn it longer but I absentmindedly picked off one of the thumbnails during a movie - in (almost) one piece, which is kind of fun, haha.

Outdoor, shade
  The base of this mani is Butter London The Black Knight, which is totally and completely gorgeous.  It is a black base full of glitter, mostly pink and blue, but there are also a few scattered golds, reds and greens in there as well.  The glitters are also different sizes, with some normal sized and some very small, which gives it great depth.  It was just a tad thick but mostly applied very well in two coats.  It dries gritty, but two coats of top coat smoothed that out.

  For stamping, I used Red Angel plate RA-102 and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri polishes in Brisk Blue and Flashy Fuchsia.  The Insta-Dri polishes work really well for stamping, they are some of my new favorites!  Below are a few pictures of Black Knight by itself.

   Isn't it just gorgeous?  I want to go put it back on now.  It came in a cute little set I found at Ulta with another pink glitter polish I will have to try soon.  It is really unique and I am so glad I picked this one up!  :)
