The Black Knight

A few days ago I managed to break my SD card somehow, it works in my camera, but not in my MacBook, or even in my old laptop, so trying to get the photos off was a right pain. I had to install the software for my camera, and search for the USB cable! So, while I wait for my new SD card to arrive (it’s sooo much easier just to stick it in and copy and paste, yes I’m that lazy!) I can get through a few old swatches that I’ve been meaning to post for ages.

First up, The Black Knight, from butter LONDON, which was part of the ‘Sparkle, Sparkle’ Holiday Collection that I got back in November.

The Black Knight is a black polish, packed with glitter, which is mainly pink and blue. It was a little sheer, and took 3 coats to get it opaque, but it was worth it, its so pretty! I think it would be easiest using a normal black polish first, then a couple of coats of The Black Knight on top.

Pictures show three coats with top coat.

Also, the last week or so I’ve barely put my Kindle down! Two of my favourite authors, Sophie Kinsella and Paige Toon released their new books, Wedding Night and The Longest Holiday on the same day, so I quickly made my way through them! The Longest Holiday was my favourite of the two, such a roller coaster of emotions! I still haven’t forgiven Paige Toon for the heartbreak I went through whilst reading Chasing Daisy! Even though I finished The Longest Holiday a day ago, I can’t get it out of my head, I’m suffering from Post Book Depression! I’d definitely recommend all of Paige Toon’s books. I’m just glad I already have Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher to help ease me through the pain! (McFly just came of my iTunes shuffle whilst I was writing that, weird! If you don’t know, Giovanna is Tom Fletcher’s wife!)
