Today I have a review of a JORD Wood Watch. Yes, A watch! I was as shocked as you when I was approached by JORD, the first time I'm reviewing something that's not nail related. But almost instantly I found a way to relate them ; ) We'll get to that in a minute, now let's see the unboxing.
The watch came in a box (see the photo below) made of the same wood as my watch, it was carefully wrapped in a bubble wrap and shipped in a carton box, so the watch was very well protected.
The watch I got was from their Sidney series in Maple and Rose Gold, click here for the direct link to it. The watch also came with a cushion and manual page. It was easy to adjust and use anyway, I adjust the time to my time zone and learnt how to use the stopwatch function within five minutes. The stopwatch function is Seiko Quartz Chronograph Stopwatch Movement (VD54), showing on the smaller watch in the middle.
I'm wearing size 14 cm, as measured on a tape. It's a bit tighter then how I would normally wear a watch, should probably had a 1/4 cm up. Other than that, it's perfect. I have a slim wrist, so it looks a bit sporty on me, which is exactly how I like my watches, lol. I'm actually wearing a sports watch on the other hand. I didn't wear it for any sports activity or to the shower though, it's only splash proof, so I consider it more as a fashion accessory. It's easy and nice to go with my casual outfits.
The photo below is the closest to the real color of my watch, the others was weither too dark or too bright because of the lighting.
I really liked the combo of wood and rose gold, so I created a mani inspired by the watch, and of course, with the crystals as well. I started with a pale beige base using the polish I made from scratch, just to match the color of the watch; then I stamped each nail with the wood pattern from BM-608 using two polishes, OPI Need Sunglasses? and You Don't Know Jacques! The metallic blocks were added after the stamping with the help a striping tape; the polish I used was Essie Penny Talk, a beautiful rose gold. To complete the look, I added the clear rhinestones from Bundle Monster.
Thinking about getting yourself one? Stay tuned!
