Inspired by Butter London

This nail art was inspired by Butter London Black Knight, which is a black based nail polish with red, blue, pink and holographic glitter. It is one of the most intriguing nail polishes that I have ever seen, especially as I love black glitter polishes. Now I cannot afford to buy Butter London as they are £12 each, so I opted for a more affordable alternative...

These are three of the four glitters I used, pink, red and blue. I got these from my sister for my birthday in January. First I created the base by adding Barry M black and a little bit of Barry M Bright Purple (I didn't measure how much I exactly used!)

For the holographic glitter, I used a glitter polish that I bought from claires. It is very fine, and is probably one of mt favourite glitters as it is very sparkly!

Of course, I had to add some nail art to it, so I added a purple polka dot bow to my index finger, with a gem attatched to the middle. Overall, I really do love this glitter, however, I only just discovered that my local Boots has started to stock Butter London (including Black Knight)! So I think I might save up my Boots points for that, I'm very excited!
