Forty Winks Jewelry

La Farfalla

Price: $14.00 USD (*NOTE* Only the pendant is included, no chains or cords are included)
Inspiration: I was inspired by a fantastical House of Worth butterfly gown ensemble, complete with wings on the back and a matching head peice. Owned by Margaret Draper/Princess Boncompagni, an American Heiress who was briefly married to an Italian prince in 1922. The ensemble is Circa 1912, when she would have been about 21. Margaret was a celebrity in her time and this outfit would look perfectly in place at a MET Gala or royal ball.   There’s some great close up photos and details here: https://whitakerauction.smugmug.com/Spring-2017/Early-Clothing-to-1929/ID-4868-WORTH-BEADED-BUTTERFLY-FANCY-DRESS-GOWN-c-1912/
Cap: 28 US / 2 UK
Description:  10×50 mm cabochon set into a zinc alloy pendant in a silver tone. The pendant itself is about 2.5 inch long including the bezel. Hand marbled with 4 indies polishes and includes multichrome, holo glitters, iridescent and gold flakes, “unicorn pee” shimmer, and “aurora” shimmer. Each one is meticulously made with love to reflect the colors of the gown and no 2 will be alike. The inner part on some of the bezels are not perfectly smooth and because of this I am not including a silk cord. I recommend that this be worn on a metal chain or a sturdy non fraying fabric.

Now I just want to mention again that this listing is for the pendant only! Erika was kind enough to include a cord in my package so that I could use it for photos, but you will receive the pendant only. I also wanted to show this on various chain lengths so there are four different cords and chains used below for photos.
Now this pendant is way more sparkly in person. Due to the cabochon being rounded, it was a little bit difficult to photograph and capture all of the sparkle at once, but it is definitely there! I also love the weight and size of it. I think I personally prefer wearing this pendant on the longest chain I show below just because I prefer to have larger pendants hanging down further, but it looks great on any chain length!

My swatches below are four coats of polish over a peel off base coat and topped with one coat of quick dry top coat. I had no application issues.
So why 4 coats? Well 3 was plenty, but I smudged one nail so badly, I needed to add one more coat to it, so I went ahead and did one more coat on all of my nails. I would say it looks about the same if you use 3 or 4 coats–I just wanted to make sure things looked consistent.

This polish built up fantastically! It is a little bit thinner, but after 3 coats I did have full coverage. I also only used one coat of top coat in my photos below and there was the tiniest bit of texture, but not enough to bother me. If you would like to do two coats of top coat I bet you wouldn’t feel any texture. 🙂 I bet you could also use this as a topper!
I also love how tiny the glitters are. There are so many and they sparkle like crazy! I do especially love this one matte–it really shows off the depth of this polish.

After Party Cocktails

Price: $10.00 USD
Inspiration: Inspired by red carpet after parties
Cap: None
Description: A house blend of Blonde Moment, Bite Me, Butt Naked, Volcano Capri Blue Type.
Scent Notes: Champagne, Fizz, Citrus, Mixed berries, Fruits.
Ingredients: Parasoy Wax, fragrance oil, colorant
Size: 6.7 oz

This was melt is HUGE. I was shocked when I received it because I had not seen one this large before–which that may just mean that I don’t buy enough wax melts. It is about the size of my entire hand and one cube was definitely enough to fill up my wax warmer. I also tend to re-melt wax a time or two after the first use, so 6 cubes of wax times 2-3 uses per means you could get 12 – 18 uses or “melts” out of this one container! Maybe even more! The scent throw was great and I’m actually having a hard time telling myself I need to take photos of more wax melts because I just want to keep melting this one!
I also like to always mention to check out the “melt after” date just to make sure you’re melting the wax once is it ready to be melted! I haven’t had an issue melting before this date, but I am sure the maker knows what they are doing. 😉

Now for the scent! All of the scent oils used are actually listed on Tonshi Mountain Studio’s site here!
Blonde Moment – Champagne, Raspberry, Cranberry.
Bite Me – Fizz, Orange, Lime, Berry, Cherry.
Butt Naked – Honeydew Melon, Green Apple, Pear, Strawberry, Vanilla.
Volcano Capri Blue Type – Pineapple, Goji Berry, Mango, Driftwood.

When I first opened this wax I definitely picked up on the fruit. It smells like one of those fancy colorful drinks that I never know the name of and only consider ordering when I go to a fancy restaurant hehe. I definitely feel like there is a hint of almost, carbonation, which is probably the fizz in Bite Me and the champagne in Blonde Moment. There is a little bit of an earthy scent as well….Not like, “dirt” earthy, but the fruit is almost a little bit muted and not crazy sugary or overpowering. I think this may be the driftwood in the Volcano Capri scent coming out. Everything just mixes so well together and this is honestly a very complex scent. It’s almost hard to pick just anything out because as mentioned, it just all blends together so well!
