Hello! 😀

Jord Wooden Watch Review

Jord Ely Watch

Today I have a wonderful wooden watch that has been kindly sent to me from JORD to share with you!

This is the Ely in black. And I absolutely love it!

You can find the JORD website right here woodwatches.com

JORD wooden watch Box

The wooden box it arrived in is so cute! (I do have a weakness for well designed packaging)

But more importantly. What’s in the box?!

The Ely watch is on it’s own branded pillow with a little engraved wooden tag, a warranty card and a card with social media information along with a couple of extra links for the strap.

It all arrived carefully packed inside and out with bubble wrap, and made it all the way from America with out a single scratch!

The Ely retails at $129 which is around £83 and JORD ship internationally.

The Ely is available in four different types of wood, each one a different colour, Black (my one), Cherry (a warm red), Natural Green with Maple (green toned light wood) and Maple (pale honey shade).

The watch itself feels really well made, the wood is very smooth and surprisingly tactile, I keep finding myself stroking it lol.

This is what JORD say about the Ely Watch.

“Ely is 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.”

And the technical details.

  • 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

Also the clasps are made from stainless steel which is great if you have metal allergies.

JORD Wooden Watch With wood nails

For my JORD inspired wood grain nails I used

  • Color Club Black-ish
  • Color Club Rebel Spirit
  • Malava Zanzibar
  • Revlon Hot For Chocolate
  • Revlon Stiletto

Starting with a base of Hot For Chocolate I used a thin brush and Stiletto to paint the grain, I decided that a different pattern on each nail as the wood of each link has a different pattern.

With the same thin brush I added Rebel Spirit, Black-ish and Zanzibar to add a little more depth to the wood grain pattern.

I really love that this watch is unique, it’s light and easy to wear, and because of the lovely neutral colours and classic design it’s really easy to dress up or down. 😀

OMG Japanese LED Nail Decal Review!


Hello! I have a really fun product to show you today! 😀

These Japanese LED Nail Decals that have been kindly been sent to me from www.omgnailstrips.com.

From the OMG website – “The LED light chip is powered by NFC fields given off by most Android phones, Point of Sale Machines, Apple Pay and many other electronics, meaning when in the presence of these NFC fields your nail will light up and blink.”

And OMG are also in the process of designing an App for Android that would allow the nail to light up when you get different types of notifications on your phone. How amazing is that!?

OMG supply two types of led stickers, one specifically for Gel polish which is the chip on it’s own and the set with stickers is for use with regular nail polish.

The Decals are $5.99 per pack with free international shipping and are available in White, Green and Blue, for Gel and White, Red and Blue for regular polish!

Both chips I have to show you today are white ones!

Here is a little video (be nice, I don’t do videos often lol) of the chip for Gel polish directly on the back of my phone.

The LEDs for Acrylic and Gel are available Here

Pink Roses

Applying the chip was really simple, the clear part of the decal is really easy to trim to size, I used a couple of coats of black polish to hide the chip, being very careful not to cover the LED.



I decided to use the pink rose accent sticker from the set. I found that the adhesive on the stickers is very strong, so repositioning it is a bit of a challenge.

I used Seche Vite topcoat and I did find that the Accent sticker went a little bit crinkly as the polish dried. I don’t know if a non quick dry topcoat would have the same effect on the accent stickers, unfortunately I don’t have any on hand to try!

Here’s another little video of it in action. This time on my nail 🙂

The decals for using with regular polish are available Here

The other products I used for this look are

  • Barry M – Shocking Pink
  • Butter London – Frilly Knickers
  • Illamasqua – Scorn
  • Moyou – Pro collection XL 07
  • Konad – Special Polish Black
  • Seche Vite Topcoat

I found that to get the best and brightest flashes I had to be holding my phone close to where the NFC chip is located. Unfortunately these won’t work with iphones.

Make sure that NFC setting is turned on on your phone or the LED won’t work!

I really do like these LED decals, they are so fun to wear!

Rhinestone Spider!


Hello! 😀

Rhinestone Spider Born Pretty

Rhinestone Spider

Rhinestone Spider

NYC 001 – Evil

The other things I used for this mani are

  • NYC – Evil
  • Color Club – Lumin-Iceant
  • Moyou Pro Collection XL stamping plate 05
  • Seche Vite

I started out with two coats of Evil, it’s a nice black cream but, that name! Evil! Who thought that one up? ugh!

I used Lumin-Iceant to stamp the spiderweb design from Moyou Pro 05 and topped it off with a coat of Seche Vite

When that had dried it was time to apply the spider, But I found this…

Rhinestone Spider

Not very flat at all!

The back of the spider wasn’t flat, it looks to be something to do with the manufacturing process.

So I decided to remove it using an old metal nail file, it only took a couple of minutes and it worked really well! Although it was a little bit fiddly to keep a good grip on the spider while filing as they are tiny!

Now I have a flat bottomed spider. I applied a thick coat of Seche Vite to my ring finger nail and positioned it on my nail using tweezers, and gently pressed it onto the nail until the topcoat had dried.

I think these little spiders are really cute, but I really like spiders! 😀

Moyou Nails Review!

Hi everyone! Today I have a review post for you, I had hoped to get this done last week but I ended up going away for work so I didn’t have the time. Booo!

Here are some rather lovely things from Moyou Nails!

These items where all sent to me for my honest review!

This is What The Lovely People At Moyou Nails Sent Me For Review

This is What The Lovely People At Moyou Nails Sent.

The package included

  • White stamping polish (my choice of colour)
  • Silicone stamper
  • Plastic scraper
  • Two image plates 101 and 103 (my choice of plates)
  • And the summer 2014 catalogue
Plates 101 and 104

Plates 101 and 103

Here are the stamping plates, they are 5.5cm across and have a paper backing, they are really nicely finished with no sharp edges and the etching looks very crisp and feels like a good depth.

Moyou Nails Stamper

Here is the (rather messy) stamper (I really should get a lint roll).

The stamping head is the same size as the large end of the Konad double ended stamper, I did find that the Moyou stamper is slightly firmer than the Konad one. It needed no preparation and it picked up the images really cleanly.

The first plate I tried is 101, look at those cute little owls!

The base polish is Skyscraper from China Glaze, I wanted to use a dark polish just to see how well the white stamping polish really works and as I was already wearing this polish and I thought it would be good to practice on, but it turned out so well I decided to keep it! 😀

I have to say I was not disappointed with the stamping polish! I’ve only ever used standard polish for stamping in white until now, so I don’t actually have anything to compare this with, but the difference is remarkable! 😀 I think I’m going to have to try a few other colours from the stamping polish range! 😀

The second plate I chose is plate 103, I decided to try the zebra print design.

It turns out that french tip stamps are probably the most difficult kind of stamp to get lined up and stamped evenly, and this was my third attempt, as I have quite a pronounced c-curve to my nails I found it was very difficult to use the firm stamper so I ended up using my purple squishy stamper for this mani.

The base colour I chose is Yummy Mummy from Butter London and the black on the tips is Twilight from Filthy Gorgeous.

I used tip guides to get the lines sharp with the black polish, then a thick coat of Seche Vite for a smooth surface to stamp on.

I found it much easier to line up the image by pressing my nail onto the stamper rather than the other way around!

This is the first time I have used products from Moyou Nails and I have to say I am impressed with the quality of plates and the lovely stamping polish!
