Hello everyone, I know its been a while again, but I have been painting and photographing the whole time. Honestly its taking me a while to adjust to managing my new job and writing posts. Its nice to be back and to share what I have been up to! Today is going to be a first for me. I saw a while back on Bundle Monster's Facebook page that they were looking for people to do reviews on products. I sent an email and was sent a lovely Clutch. The exact title for it is Women's Rhinestone Peacock Clasp Velvet Evening Clutch Handbag. I like to call it the Peacock Clutch, its a bit shorter. :) I did paint my nails for this clutch, and will get to them after I discuss the clutch!
First off I would like to say how impressed I was with the packaging of this clutch. It was very well protected through its journey to me. The clutch I am discussing today is a small velvet clutch with a peacock covered in rhinestones. It comes in 6 different colors, I chose Boastful Beige which is a nice light tan color. I liked the idea of a color that would go with anything. The clutch is very soft, and the peacock part actually lifts up to let you inside. It has plenty roomy for me, I always travel pretty light when going out. I had my I.D. and debit card, a large rollerball perfume, lip stick, and my Iphone 5 all in there with more room to spare. The clutch has three carrying options; no chain, long chain, short chain. I chose no chain. At first I did think it might be a little difficult to get my hand inside under the peacock, but once I did it a few times it was no problem to easily get in and out of the clutch. Overall it is an awesome little clutch and it fetched many complements! Now on to the matching nails!
I knew instantly that I wanted to do something inspired by the clutch with my nails. Then I immediately thought of my Bundle Monster stamping plates! I decided to pull 4 colors from the peacocks feathers to use on my nails, and then used BM-212 to stamp feathers on. The colors I used were Color Club Get A Clue, Julep Annie, Julep January, Julep Mackenzie, and Maybeline Bold Gold. I really love how well the polish colors match the peacock feather colors on the clutch. This was my first big scale success with stamping. I recently bought an XL sticky stamper and used it for the fist time yesterday. After much trial, error, and almost tears, I finally got the right method for stamping. I found that the swiper and stamper do not need as much pressure when contacting the image plate. Over all I am excited with how well the stamping came out and am in love with my new Peacock clutch!
