Because I just want it to be a heavy, black cable knit cardi. The starkly contrasting, shiny metal really cuts down on what I can wear it with. If the buttons were brushed gunmetal it wouldn't be worth the effort.

This would a) require a supply of Stark buttons and my Stark is using its buttons, and b) mean I would never be able to close this cardigan again because the holes would be too big for the buttons. I could take the buttons off but I might as well just do it with them on if I can and save the hassle. They're sturdily attached so why mess with the construction. Right now I'm still at "nail polish" being the best answer...
