Nail polish jewelry from Polish Findings!

I have a special post for you guys today! Amanda, who is the author of Fashion Footing, also has an Etsy store (Polish Findings) where she creates and sells nail polish jewelry! She recently put out a call on Twitter asking for reviews of her jewelry. I responded that I would love to review some of her jewelry, so she sent me three pieces. This is my first time reviewing jewelry, so hopefully I do a good job! 

**Disclosure: the following products have been provided for review**

First up, Amanda sent me this lovely ring! I don't have 'official' descriptions for any of these, so I can't say what polishes were used to create them. This ring looks to have a white-gold flakie top coat on a soft sea green background. I love how this ring is sparkly and soft at the same time. To me, despite the gold flakies, I think the color combination is subtle and neutral enough to be worn with almost anything. The ring size is adjustable and so should fit a variety of fingers, though you may have issues if you have super tiny fingers. My only issue with the adjustable rings (and this is ALL adjustable rings, not solely the one I received from Amanda) is that they sometimes get pinchy after you have adjusted them-- but I think some gentle tweaking with a pair of pliers would solve that problem. I am probably not aided in this area right now by the fact that I'm pregnant and therefore prone to swelling in my feet and fingers!





Up next, I have a subtly gorgeous pendent. This one features various sizes of white hex glitter and some small holographic glitter on a grey background in an antique brass-looking setting. This one is so pretty-- I love the white against the grey, it's subtle and sparkly. I like the added touch of the purple bead-- you could coordinate it with an outfit or just use it as an every day piece! The subtly of the colors is actually one of the things I really love about this.



Lastly, I have a eye-catching orange and gold pendent necklace! It consists of a gold glitter (small circle glitter and very fine glitter) on an orange background. I would go so far as to guess that the gold is Julep Vivien, but am not 100% positive. Anyway, this pendent has a silver setting/chain and from a distance I love that this pendent looks like a little bit of captured fire, or even a piece of amber. I'm wearing it right now to give a pop of color to a very neutral outfit. I love it!



Each of the pieces came individually wrapped in bubble wrap and it's own little organza bag. While certainly not as fragile as a bottle of polish, it was nice to see the pieces wrapped up so they wouldn't be at risk for breaking and the organza bag was a nice way of 'dressing them up' a bit! I find the pieces to be well-made-- the glass cabochons are well seated within their respective settings and I like that Amanda has a variety of settings and shapes available in her Etsy shop. One thing I especially like about the pendents is that they have large clasps, so they're easy to get on and off. Over all, I respect Amanda as a beauty blogger and I'm highly impressed by the pieces from her shop-- I've definitely added a few to my Etsy favorites list!

Thanks to Amanda's generosity, she made a coupon code for all my readers! You can get 10% off your entire order from Amanda's store using the code LACLAND10. Go forth and shop at Polish Findings! Amanda has lots of different pieces available in her store, including necklaces, rings, and earrings and she is willing to make custom pieces if you contact her directly.
