JORD Wood Watch inspired nail art with giveaway

I'm very lucky to have paired up with JORD wood watches to bring you an awesome giveaway. But I can't show you these gorgeous wood watches without being inspired to create some wood watch themed nail art too.

I selected the JORD Fieldcrest watch in Maple wood to feature and I really love it.  The wood is so smooth and polished and the watch is so light on my arm that I hardly even notice that I'm wearing it, plus it looks pretty damn awesome on too.  The bezel around the face is polished stainless steel and the hour markings and hands are all stainless steel too.  I had to adjust the band by removing two links, and this was easily done using a couple of fine screwdrivers and unscrewing the silver link bars.

For my matching mani, I started with a base of Sally Hansen Honey Whip. I stamped using Moyou plate Pro Collection XL 05. I created the brown stamping polish by mixing up some of my Mundo de Unas stamping polishes. I used one drop of reddish, two drops of green and about four drops of white to create this shade of brown.  For the ruffian edge I used a fine nail art brush and freehand painted using OPI Push and Shove.

When I was contacted about featuring a JORD wood watch on my blog, I checked out the huge range of watches that were for sale.  The first watch I actually spotted was the limited edition Pujols Family Foundation watch.  A portion of the sales from this watch go toward the Pujols Family Foundation and the watch design features a twist of the foundation logo with the baseball batter image and the number 5 marked in red (#5 being the number that Albert Pujols plays in for the Los Angeles Angels MLB team).

I ended up purchasing this watch for my husband for our wedding anniversary.   Those of you that had read my blog for a while might remember that my husband is a baseball player here in Australia playing in the Australian Baseball League, so this watch was just the perfect gift for him. He really loves the watch too.

The Fieldcrest series wood watch is designed for both men and women seeking simple elegance. Not an overly large face but certainly not small, it's an everyday design. The Fieldcrest offers Citizen Miyota movements. Stainless steel hands and hour ticks are complimented by vivid wood grain face.
