The Fairy Tale Collection - Available Now

Those of you who have followed me for a while will know that I'm a HUGE fan of Disney. So I thought it was finally time to take some inspiration and create a fairy tale collection.

Mini Collection ($26.50)
Individual polishes, in mini and full size bottles, can also be purchased for our website for $4.50 per mini and $8 (Falling in Love) and $9 (for the rest of the collection).

I was so excited making this collection. I thought back to everything I read and watched as a kid and tried to put it into colors lol. The Fairy Tale Collection is meant to be the ultimate fairy tale experience for your nails. It'll take you through the highs and lows of finding love for the first time, losing love, fighting against everything and anything that stands in your way, and ultimately finding (and keeping) it again in the end.

There's shimmer and sparkle and even a glow in the dark villain.

I had the idea of holding the brush in the sun for a fun glowing brush shot and it turned out better than I hoped!

Looking for swatches? Look no further!

Until next time,

Wood Watches by JORD Review (PIC HEAVY)

*Some products were sent to me for testing and review, completely complimentary, from Wood Watches by JORD. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Hello lovelies! I was given the amazing opportunity to try and review one of the gorgeous wooden watches from JORD. If you've never heard of JORD before or have never seen their watches take a look below!

Jord has so many designs, shapes, and colors to choose from, but I picked Zebrawood and Maple from the Fieldcrest Series. This wood has such an interesting 'zebra' striped pattern on it, and I wanted nothing more than to recreate this with nail art! Keep reading for that. ;)

Upon opening the box I was stunned to see this box inside. It's a beautiful light wood keepsake box that contained the info on JORD, the JORD wood watch I chose wrapped around a cute little pillow, and a few extra links just in case I measured my wrist wrong when having it sized (fyi: I did) but it was super easy to add one of the extra links!

I even made sure to pack the watch in my beach bag and take it on vacation with me. I really wanted to get dressed up and have a photo shoot on the beach but the boyfriend really can't be trusted with a camera (though he was nice enough to hold the box carefully off the balcony so I could get the first picture of this post) so I waited until I returned home and had a photo shoot of my own.

A little background on JORD to go with the photos. JORD (Swedish for earth, soil, land) uses a variety of natural and sustainably sourced woods from across the globe. Woods such as those used in their current series of watches - bamboo, maple, sandalwood, blackwood, cherry, zebrawood, koa, purple heart, ebony, and rosewood. That's 100% natural wood without the use of harsh chemicals to treat or protect the wood with stainless steel clasps to help keep them hypoallergenic! Of course, that doesn't guarantee you won't have an allergic reaction so watch out (no pun intended) for any signs or symptoms but I speak for myself when I say I have allergies to nearly everything and my watch didn't bother me a bit.

JORD also ships worldwide so don't be afraid to go take a browse if you're one of my lovely international followers! They even ship to P.O. boxes with a valid credit card and billing address. ;)

And now, the moment you've all been waiting for ... NAILS!!!!!

I chose this specific watch for this pattern! If I was getting a wood watch I wanted an awesome wood grain pattern that I could recreate on my nails, and it doesn't get better than this!! This mani is actually completely customized. I custom mixed three bottles of polish to get the color as close as humanly possible to the wood.

It was a huge success in my humble opinion! I started out with a light brown base, sponged on a medium brown, and finished with a hand drawn wood grain pattern in a dark brown.

Many thanks to JORD for letting me try this beauty! I couldn't be happier. However, if my choice in watch isn't to your personal preference take a look at the scroll bar below and visit to find the perfect wood watch for you. :)
