My Name Necklace

I've been wanting a personalised necklace for the longest time. I remember having a 'Samantha' necklace when I was in my teens which quickly turned green on the underside but I kept wearing it until I eventually lost it - which was probably for the best! I have a bit of a history of falling in love with necklaces. You may remember my T-Rex necklace from Slashpile designs which I posted about back in February and am still head over heels in love with but now there's a new kid on the block - my 'Sammersaurus' necklace!

This necklace comes from a company called My Name Necklace who offer a huge range of customised jewellery including some Tatty Devine style pieces (at a fraction of the price!). This particular design is the sterling silver 'Carrie' style name necklace and I decided to get my online moniker, Sammersaurus, instead of something a bit more traditional like my real name! Once again, I'm in love. I also want to mention how amazing the delivery time was. I was told to expect a wait of 2-3 weeks which is more than reasonable because of course items are made to order but my order arrived in just over 7 days.

If you want your own personalised piece (or maybe you want to drop some heavy hints at someone else before Christmas comes around!), My Name Necklace have been kind enough to offer a code for 10% off any purchases. Just enter NAIL at the checkout!

For the nail art, I used No7 Just Black as my base colour. On my pointer I added two coats of NYC Smokey Top Coat and then added some 1.5mm Silver Studs from The Nailasaurus Emporium near my cuticles.
For the finishing touch, I monogrammed my ring finger using a nail art brush and Barry M Silver Foil.
It's all topped off with a coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.



  1. I love this company! I got my name necklace in Arabic script from them and absolutely love it. I had ordered from another company, Namefully.com, and their photos were not accurate at all to what the actual product looks like, AND they did not have an exchange policy and only offered me a 10% refund even though I was completely unsatisfied with the product due to the misleading images. With My Name Necklace, they actually spelled my name in Arabic differently than what I wanted and when I let them know specifically how I expected it would be translated, they sent me another necklace and a pre-paid envelope to send the old necklace back... even though they are based in Israel I believe! Love love Love <3

  5. First off, love the mani. Secondly, I think I've found my mom's Christmas gift. She would absolutely love that necklace.

  6. I love it! Have You Any idea, is this piece turning green, When it's used?

    1. No this piece is sterling silver so it will never turn green. As long as you occasionally polish it with a silver cloth it should last forever x

  7. georgeous! simplicity and pure beauty!

  8. Reminds me of the 90's and the gals on Sex and The City!

  9. Absolutely beautiful, and the photos are looking great!
