Hello girls :) It's been a while!
I've been super busy with wedding planning and traveling back home that I have neglected my blog! Well hopefully since I'm on a roll with the planning and I've finished up frankening, I'll have more time for it again :D
Today I've got a semi-nail fail to show you! I fell in love last December when Scrangie blogged about the Holiday Dressing Table collection from Butter London. I. Had. To. Have. It.
I didn't get around to purchasing until earlier this summer and The Black Knight is just NOT a summer color so I stashed it away. (I did use Tart with a Heart over some other polishes, though...LOVE).
Anywho, I decided since it's now fall to bust out this combo! Here are the shots (Sorry I don't have any shots of either polish alone...this is just the combo!):
I do not know what happened between last year and this year, because I loved The Black Knight + Tart with a Heart when I first saw swatches....but after application? Blech. I took it off right away!
I haven't given up all hope. I've convinced myself that the combination of the purple undertones of The Black Knight plus the green undertones of Tart with a Heart plus my skintone and longer nails just resulted in me kind of hating it.
Now don't get me wrong, they both applied great! I used two coats of The Black Knight and one coat of Tart with a Heart topped with Seche Vite--they went on smooth just like all BL polishes! I think with how long my nails are and how pale my skin is, I just felt like it looked witchy! If I was going for that Halloween look I would've kept it on :) But sadly, I'm not.
I think I'll save The Black Knight for shorter nails...or maybe mid-winter, when it'd work better!
Did you girls pick this combo up when it came out last year? What'd you think?
