Review and Nail Art | Jord Dover Series Wood Watch

I have a very super special review AND a detailed nail art for you all today.

I have been seeing these beautiful Jord Wood Watches all over my Instagram page, and was even looking into getting one for my girlfriend for her birthday, so I was so excited when I heard from Dan at Jord and he was asking if I wanted to review one of their time pieces. Of course I said yes!

Dan asked if I would do some nail art to go with my post about the watch and well... how can I say no to nail art? I really had a lot of fun putting together this post for you all, so I hope you love it. First I'm just going to show you and talk about the watch a little bit.

As you can see in the photo above, this beautiful timepiece came packaged just as beautifully. When I opened the package there was this great little wooden box and inside was a cute pillow with the watch around it. Even the tag on the watch with the Jord logo was made of wood, which was a great detail.

The first thing I noticed about this watch is how amazing it is to be able to see the gears moving inside. I am such a geek and I love little details like that. The majority of the band and the bezel around the face are made of Zebrawood and another darker wood. I really love the contrast between them. The face is open on both the front and the back, which is really unique and interesting.

When I chose the watch I wanted Jord gave me the option to size it before they shipped it. It was really easy using the tool they have on their site to print. I love how this watch sits on my wrist and will definitely be wearing it a lot.

I had so many ideas for nail art to go with my new Jord watch, but in the end I decided on something that really went hand and hand with just a little more bling.

I started out with the idea of doing something zebra print since the watch is made with Zebrawood. I looked in my collection and tried to match the base color as close as I could and ended up with OPI Love Angel Music Baby on my thumb and index fingers as the base for some acrylic paint zebra stripes. I also used this lacquer on my pinkie and hand painted the Jord logo using a chocolate brown acrylic paint.

 On my middle finger I started with a base of Pahlish Raggedy Man, Goodnight and then hand painted some numbers to represent the watch numbers using different shades of acrylic paint and a small brush.

I painted my ring finger with a couple coats of Ethereal Lacquer Macabre and then added a bunch of gears I had from a friend to it. I was so happy I had these watch gears to use in this mani, I think it really gave it a little something extra special.

I think this nail art and the Dover watch look great together! I'm so pleased with how they go hand in hand. 

Of course I couldn't help but add a coat of matte topcoat to see how that would look.

Bam!! I love this too!!

The matte version of this nail art is much more subtle but super super pretty and really shows off the details of the hand painted designs.

I also love how well this matte version matches the Dover timepiece. They look like they belong together.

What do you all think? Have you ever seen a wood watch before?

I am in love with this Jord Dover Zebrawood and Cream watch and I'll definitely be bookmarking the site for future use for gifts (ok and probably more for me too haha!)
