Butter London - The Black Knight

Sup Chikitos and Muchachos!!!!

Lol.. Idk what I just said, but you get my drift. 

Hope y'all are doing great!

I've got my swatch of Butter London - The Black Knight for you all today. I got this polish together with my Deboran Lippman - It's raining men, with the Ariva.com deal I posted a while back.

I was all sorts of excited when I saw that this polish was available for purchase. I had to snag it cos I heard so much about it and kinda loved the swatches I saw online.

Well, The Black Knight is now mine, and sadly, I don't love it. :-(
I don't love it on me, I just am not feeling it. I tried to really like the polish. It was sheer at first coat, but after a 2nd thicker coat, it got opaque and I liked it a bit more. 3 coats later, I got to an opacity that made me happy.

But the Polish still didn't look good on me. :-(
In a way, it still looks pretty, but in another way, I was expecting to be head over heels in love with it. Lol..
I can be hard to please sometimes I know.

 Since I didn't like it alone, I decided to Jazz it up a bit.
Well, That was a bad Idea because my jazzing just made this look even more weird. Lol... I used Color Club - Sugar Plum Fairy  for a free hand french tip design.

Let's just say, If I didn't have a "I swatch, I post" policy, this mani might not have been featured on my blog. It wore well on me for a day, but I couldn't stand the french tips for more  than a day. lol... I picked at it cos it looked like I dipped the tip of my nails in sugar or crushed ice.. lol.. 

Do you have The Black Knight or are you lemming it? I hope I didn't spoil the polish for you. lol... It's just not my kinda polish. Still pretty in its own way, but I think It'll need a new home. :-D

Anyhoo, That's it for now darlings. Till later, God bless.
