*** REVIEW: Nail Cones ***

As I haven't received the product (nail cones) although the company shipped it (there may be customs issues), I cannot write a product review. This is my final day for the verification, so I just have to write an introductory post about this company. If I receive the product after that date, I will update this post with the exact product review.

Perfect nails with Nail Cones

From the Company:
This is an easy to use product that protects your skin when you apply nail polish. It is a sticker that is cut out to form around the nail when the polish is applied. It is easy to apply and remove. A perfect polish everytime.

* I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

(I have to put this disclosure per the system request. However, I didn't receive the product.)

*** REVIEW: SlinkyLinksJewellery Black Tassel Necklace ***

As you remember, there was a great giveaway going on at my blog from SlinkyLinksJewellery. And now, I'm here with a product review of the same store. The nice owner of this lovely store sent me a beautiful black leather tassel necklace ($43.00 USD).

The necklace arrived at my home within a week (very speedy) in a beautiful organza jewellery pouch along with the store's business card. I always keep those cards; I never throw them away. I also keep all of my jewellery in these bags, so I don't throw them away, either :)

To be honest, at first, I was worried if the necklace was durable, and if the leather part will loose from the chain and fall apart. When I received the necklace, all of my worries were gone. The leather tassels are so soft but durable. The workmanship is very good, the collar ring is really secure in order to prevent the leather piece from getting loose. Although the chain is not adjustable and there is no clasp, there is no need for that, because you can just slip it on, and it needs to be a long necklace due to its nature and appearance. And you know that there is a strong and weird smell of leather items, but I didn't smell such an odor on this necklace. That's a good point! So, if you like leather jewellery, I recommend you to check SlinkyLinksJewellery. I also share some of my favorite items from this store; you can click on the pictures to check the products in detail.

About the Company:
I'm from Paris but I moved to London 5 1/2 years ago to start a more creative career. I worked for a shoe maker before I had the idea to start my leather jewellery business.
I started SlinkyLinks a year ago, first as a hobby and then full time as I really believe it can become something great.
I love working with leather as it is quite an unusual and versatile material to create jewellery from. I want to create stylish and sophisticated pieces, classic with and edge. Perfect for busy women, you can wear them day and night and they will always add glamour to your outfit.
All of my jewellery are made from scraps of leather, 100% recycled. I get all the cast-off pieces of leather from a local shoemaker and work from there.
I only use allergy-free, good quality materials such as stainless steel and 14K gold-filled, that would last for a long time but still remain affordable.

BUY IT: Leather earrings are between $20.69 - $37.93; leather bracelets are between $21.55 - $60.34; leather necklaces are between $34.48 - $51.72; statement necklaces are between $86.21 - $155.17; leather rings are between $20.69 - $60.34; Game of Thrones jewelry are between $25.86 - $43.10; leather brooches are between $25.86 - $37.93; wedding jewelry are between $25.86 - $68.97.
