Yesterday was Thanksgiving so I am doing my #manimonday on a Tuesday this week. This manicure was inspired by one of the prettiest things I have ever put on my wrist – the JORD Cora Purpleheart & Mother of Pearl wood watch.
I’ve been staring at this watch for months, so when I was offered the opportunity to review it I literally squealed with delight. Even the packaging is beautiful – it came in an adorable embossed wooden box with a slide-off lid, revealing the stunning Cora wood watch on a display pillow… which my daughter quickly took to use as a seat cushion.
The watch is very light – I have had a lot of people ask to look at it over the past few weeks and it is almost always the first comment. The face is made from sapphire glass which is extremely scratch resistant, and the mother of pearl face has 8 Swarovski crystals around the dial and a small display window so you can see the inner workings. For any watch geeks out there, the watch is powered by a SEA-GULL ST6103K, it is self-winding and the power reserve is 36 hours. I’ve only had to re-set it once when I didn’t wear it for a weekend. You can see the movement through the back display as well, and I would be lying if I said I haven’t spent time sitting and shaking it to watch the self-winding at work.
I was a little concerned that it would be bulky – but it fits my wrist perfectly and this matches almost everything in my closet beautifully. It also compliments my wedding ring set which is typically the only other standard piece of jewelry I wear.
For my JORD Cora Purpleheart & Mother of Pearl inspired manicure – I used OPI Midnight in Moscow on my thumb, index and pinkie fingers, and C&E Snowdrop topped with China Glaze Platinum Pearl on my ring and middle fingers. I used crystals from the KISS Salon Secrets Luxe Accents nail kit and topped it all with Essie’s Matte About You.
With so many beautiful JORD watches to choose from, if you are looking for a unique timepiece you will be sure to find one that you love. Even my husband has been dropping hints about wanting one for Christmas. ♥
