NOTD - Butter London The Black Knight and GFC question

3.02.2012

I am sorry I haven't updated for close to a week.
I wanted to do a review post yesterday, but I guess I was too distracted and frustrated about the "Google Friends Connect" situation here.
(My GFC wouldn't load up and it has been that way more than 24 hours now. I tried different browsers and a couple of troubleshooting, but nothing has worked so far...T,.T)

To ease the pain(?), I decided to get my new goody "The Black Knight" on my tips.
We always feel better when we look at pretty things, right? ^-^;


Butter London The Black Knight
  




I think I have said this already but I am going to say it again. ;)
The Black Knight  is the prettiest glitter polish in my book. Period.
It is gloriously packed with pink, red, silver and blue glitters in black base. So pretty!
(The pictures speak for themselves, right?)

Unlike No more waity, Kaitie  (the other glitter polish I have tried from Butter London), the formula is thicker and application is quite easy for a glitter polish and provide good coverage with 2 coats. :)


*I am sorry to bother you guys, but could you tell me if you see GFC on my sidebar? I am seriously considering to take down GFC and ask my readers to follow me on Bloglovin' since I have heard GFC will be gone even from bloggers after a couple months. What are your thoughts on this?*

*Update*
Thank God, now my GFC is working!
I had to remove my custom domain and reinstall it. 
I am still not sure why it didn't work before since I am on blogger and the domain was purchased through google. (*shaking fist at google*)
Thanks for your patience and support. xoxo


Happy weekend, everyone. ^-^*

  1. I am not a fan of glitter, BUT THIS ONE IS SO AMAZING I MIGHT HAVE TO BREAK THAT RULE!

    But no, honey, I can't see GFC. I've never had it, so I don't know enough to help you. I actually like Bloglovin' a lot more than GFC, because Bloglovin' tells you promptly when any blog you're following just posted a new article. Also, GFC is already being removed as we talk, or at least that's what I heard. Good luck with this!

  2. Gosh Lena this polish looks absolutely stunning on you! The color is even prettier than in the bottle! Your GFC box isn't showing up but you should know that your update still popped up promptly on my Google Reader.

  3. I have mixed feelings whenever I see this polish, however it really looks wonderful on you!

    I don't see GFC on your website :/

  4. This color is sooooo pretty!! ♥
    I don't see GFC but sometimes it's down. I had this 2 times and it was on other blogs as well :D
    And I didn't hear that GFC will be gone for blogspot-blogger, maybe it's just a rumour (:
    Still wait a bit.

  7. I don't see your GFC but I know it's happened to a few people where it'll go away for a few days and come back (it's happened to me) are you with blogger or wordpress? I personally use google feeds to read blogs so as long as you have a feed link I'm good but blog lovin' is a good alternative.

    on to the polish. LOVE. IT. I love the Black Knight (the movie) but it reminds me of the galaxy... which I love thus I need this in my collection!

  12. What top coat did you use? I have TBK too, and it eats my top coat :(

    As for GFC, it's gone from non-blogger (blogspot) blogs now.

    So, so pretty colour!

  14. love this colour =D
    and no, can't see the GFC

    ReplyDelete
  15. gorgeous polish! the glitter makes it less goth than plain black polish - very edgy and fun!

    I can't see the GFC on your page, but I know they were taking it away from sites that weren't blogspot.com addresses. Personally I just copy and paste addresses into my feeds and subscribe that way, but bloglovin sounds like a good alternative.

  28. now it is working. thanks for adding me on bloglovin' :)

    i can't really wear straight-up black polish, but this is a nice twist!

    ReplyDelete
  29. you are the second person who said galaxy about it. maybe it should be named galaxy. ;p

    ReplyDelete
  30. i agree. nothing goth about this. ;p
    i was super worried before cause i could see other friends GFCs just fine even though they are using custom domains.
    hate google is pushing us to do things like this. ; /

    ReplyDelete
  31. thanks!
    now it is working. thanks for your input. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  32. i use seche vite. :)
    i know what you mean about. it seems that the color gets dull very quickly even after top coat.

    ReplyDelete
  33. thanks Debi :)
    now it is back on. i am so relieved. ^-^;

    ReplyDelete
  34. it's been only days but so far so good. :)
    some glitter polishes chip more easily because of the texture, i guess.

    ReplyDelete
  35. thanks. :)
    now it is fixed. it was quite frustrating!

    ReplyDelete
  36. that's what i heard!
    i know that google wants us to use G+ but i am not happy with the fact they think they can push us to do things like that. ;-/

    ReplyDelete
  37. thanks, Feelo :)
    this color would look awesome on you. i know it!

    now GFC is fixed. apparently it had something to do with my custom domain, which is ridiculous because i see yours had no problem! ;(

    ReplyDelete
  38. thank you, Penelope :D

    ReplyDelete
  39. exactly, why oh why GFC ;(
    i love this color so much! it helped me through the hard times. lol

  41. thanks, Natalie!

    i hope it is a rumour, too.
    i mean anyone would feel very deprived if they remove GFC like that!

    ReplyDelete
  42. thanks Dovey!
    now i am happy to report it is working. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  43. all thanks to you, Rolala! :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. lol. yeah! break the rule, Sunny! ;p

    i like bloglovin' a lot and i follow you there as well as by daily clicking your link here.

    That is the prettiest black glitter polish I have ever seen!! I can see your GFC btw. I wonder why it wouldn't load up. I have gone through a similar situation before. I usually just wait for a day or so before I go looking for solutions :)

  47. oh bad google :/ let's do bloglovin' and make google dissapointed lol. or don't say bloglovin' belongs to google too? ://

    ReplyDelete
  48. thanks! i totally agree with you. ;)

    as for the GFC situation, i am still sour about it. i like google for constant innovations but sometimes they do stuff without going through enough verifications. ;-/

    ReplyDelete
  49. lol i was thinking the same thing. prolly not, though. ;p

    And you make me wanna get the serum on my next purchase!

    ReplyDelete
  51. lol! always happy to enable, girlie! :)

    i really liked the serum and used two bottle in a raw. it was great in my morning routine before sunscreen!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Oooh, I'm sporting something very similar too right now! But it's missing the multi-coloured sparkles! Gorgeous!
    x.o.x.o

  53. Glad to hear your GFC is working again. I had a problem with disqus once and it almost drove my crazy! Black Knight is soooo pretty. I really regret not buying it now!

    ReplyDelete
  54. thank you. ;)
    i was very upset because i thought it was due to my custom domain but then i saw other friends with custom domains had no problem!
    anyway, i am just glad it's working. ^-^;

    i am not buying nail polishes as many cause i feel i've seen (and polished) all, but BL still gets me excited! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  55. thanks!
    i usually steer away from multi color glittered ones, but this one is just special! :)

    Yes google plays these funny tricks now and again. So frustrating. I had a different situation with google a few days back. Lovely nail color. So pretty. Do you like to follow each other on GFC and bloglovin? Let me know and will follow you right back.

  58. thanks for understanding the situation :)

    as for your invitation, i don't do exchange following although i usually follow back my new followers if there are blogs or links avail.
    thanks for visiting. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  59. that is the rumour i heard! i really hope that is not the case.
    i mean google can come up with something better and we could migrate our readers or something, but getting rid of it altogether is just plain ridonkulous!!
