A few weeks ago I read a post on Provincial Beauty Blog showing an affordable drug-store dupe for Butter Londons Dark Knight polish. While shopping in the states I picked up the two Sally Hansen polished she mentioned and gave it a try today.
Since I don't own Dark Knight I found a picture online for comparison. It is a really close dupe. I think that the Sally Hansen duo provides more glitter coverage on the nail compared to Dark Knight. Dark Knight has the pink, blue, red, gold glitter mixed throughout, whereas, my dupe has a layer of glitter on top of the black polish.
Overall though, I think that my dupe mani turned out pretty close and I am very happy with it. I love how the light hits the glitter and how the black polish makes the glitter pop.
Check out Provincial Beauty's post and blog, she is incredible. And if you know anymore dupes for Butter London polishes let me know in the comments, because I really cant afford $18 per polish.

The glitter in this polish is more evenly distributed throughout and gives it more dimension.
Mine looks more like a layer of glitter.
