JORD Wood Watch Review

Good afternoon friends! Today I have a JORD Wood Watch to share with you today. When I was asked to review this item, I jumped at the opportunity not only because they look so unique, but because I had the perfect image to use on my nails that I'll probably never use again lol. The watch I chose to review is the Ely in Maple.

Here's a bit of info on the Ely from the JORD Website:

"Ely is the complement to our Fieldcrest series, produced using a slightly smaller dial and band, with the addition of a date display. The simplicity of this design accentuates the intricacy of the wood grain. The Ely is understated and effortless.

-Deployment Buckle with Push Button
-Scratch Resistant Mineral
-Citizen Miyota Quartz Movement (2015 w/Date Display)
-Case Width: 37mm
-Case Thickness: 11mm
-Lug Ends: 45mm
-Band Length: 200mm
-Band Thickness: 21mm

Each JORD watch is designed to be splash proof but is not intended for complete submergence in water. Also note that due to the nature of the wood chosen for each unique timepiece, colors and grain pattern may vary from photos."

It came in this beautiful, sturdy wooden box to match. They both smell great!

The watch pairs perfectly with one of my new favorite accessories--my bamboo sunnies.

I felt silly doing an OOTD as I only blog about nails, but I think it turned out pretty good! The Maple color goes great with a monogram Louis for my fellow LV addicts out there.

The watch fit perfectly after following the online instructions to have it sized. Sizing it is available for $10.00 which is very reasonable plus it saves you a trip to a shop.

And of course I have a matching wood grain mani to go with my watch. Here's Color Club Disco's Not Dead stamped using Winstonia 113 in Mundo de Unas Taupe.

I am thrilled to have a JORD Wood Watch. It's great quality, looks beautiful, smells amazing, is easy to match, looks feminine, and has must have features for me like the date and second hand. You can purchase this watch from the JORD Website for $129.

Gelish Mini Pop-arazzi Pose & MoYou London Kaleidoscope 10

Happy Saturday! The mani I'm sharing today is from June when I went camping. I can't believe it's taking me forever to get all my manis posted from months back. I'll catch up--eventually. This is one of the Gelish Mini polishes I won back in May. They had a giveaway on their Instagram page and I won their Hello Pretty collection of 6 polishes. I used Gelish Pop-arazzi Pose and stamped using MoYou London Kaleidoscope 10 in Mundo de Unas Neon Orange.

Bundle Monster Time Machine Stamping Plates Review

Hi friends! Today I have Bundle Monster Time Machine plates to share with you. The set consists of 6 plates (BM-XL131 through BM-XL136) with different designs from historical time periods. Each plate measures 4.75 in x 2.4 in. 

Color Club 'Til the Record Stops stamped using Bundle Monster BM-XL132 in Mundo de Unas Chocolate

Here are the two that I received for review.

These XL rectangular plates seem to be etched better than the traditional round plates from Bundle Monster as I didn't have any issues picking up or transferring the image I used. The sizes of the images are great for large nails. A couple of the plates in the set don't strike me as having a time machine theme, but they are cute nonetheless. You can purchase these plates here for $24.99.

Bundle Monster Polynesia Stamping Plates Review

Happy Saturday beauties! Today I'll be reviewing Bundle Monster's Polynesia stamping plates. These plates are rectangular XL plates that come in sets of 5 plates. There are 4 sets to choose from: Local Kine, Land of Aloha, Traditional Polynesia, and Polynesian Tribal. Each plate measures 4.75 in x 2.4 in and the design size is 0.9 in. x 0.6 in. The designs are either full nail or buffet style. I received the Polynesian Tribal set. 

Morgan Taylor All White Now stamped using Bundle Monster Polynesia BM-XL117 in Mundo de Unas Black. The red is OPI Romantically Involved.

I loved this set of plates! The designs are a great size for big nails and the variety of images was excellent and fit the theme perfectly. I was so happy to get this set because my husband is Tongan and there is a Tonga plate! Something to note is that these XL rectangular plates seem to be etched better than the traditional round plates from Bundle Monster as I didn't have any issues picking up or transferring the image I used. You can purchase this set of plates here for $15.99. That's a steal because they're regularly $19.99!

Born Pretty Store Stamping Plate BP-06 Review

Happy August! Sorry I wasn't able to post last weekend. July was pretty hectic for me. My car was hit on 4th of July while it was parked and it ended up being totaled. I spent a lot of time looking online and spent a couple of weekends going to car dealerships to look at cars. I finally got a car this week and I'm on cloud nine! The color is Tuxedo Black Metallic and it looks super glittery in the sun--it totally suits me and I love it. Now that I have that situation under control, I can hopefully get back to my neglected nails =[

Today I have a stamping plate from Born Pretty Store to share with you. It's a Sailor Moon themed plate with 10 different images. 

I used Glam Polish Bohemian Rhapsody and stamped using Born Pretty Store plate BP-06 in Mundo de Unas White. I was pleasantly surprised that all of the intricate lines transferred without any issues and I was able to scrape over the larger designs without creating any bald spots. I honestly loved having Sailor Moon on my nails as it brought back so many memories of being obsessed watching it growing up. You can purchase this plate here for $2.99.
