Jamberry Nails Review


Hello sweet friends, I am here this morning to tell you all about Jamberry Nails.

Now I know that most of you already know about it, and have been wearing it for a while, but it's something new to me, and the other ladies in the family.  My sweet friend Amy is a Jamberry Consultant and she knows how much I love doing my nails and always trying to put on pretty nail polish or even dabble in a little nail art, so she sent along a couple of wraps for me, my daughter, sister in law and niece to try.

We were so excited when they arrived in the mail.

One of the things that I love about these is that you can even design your own, but I didn't have to do that because they had so many that were very similar to Cath Kidston, which you know I adore. I went with the Vintage Chic design, a very simple mint green with beautiful flowers on it.

My sister in law picked the Rose Glitter which is gorgeous, my niece picked the white tips with the bows and my Jasmine opted for the Galaxy look. They were all so pretty.

Now I have never applied these, so that in itself was quite daunting, but we watched a few videos,


First thing we did was look up some videos that Amy kindly passed along.

Here is the official application, the baggie method and cold method with baggie and pedicure method.

I went over to my sister in law's house and we sat down at the table and went for it.  I don't think we've laughed that hard in a long time, it was quite funny.

We tried going step by step and I still ended up messing up a couple times.  My sister in law though, she was a pro, she caught on very quickly and was way ahead of us all LOL

To be honest, these are very easy to apply but when it is the first time it can be a little confusing, I either skipped a step or did it wrong lol  But I managed to fix it, it's not a problem and easily taken care of.

It really was a lot of fun applying these and learning together how to get them on.  And have I mentioned how much I LOVE mine?  The vintage chic is so me, and just gorgeous.

So the real test for me came to housework, I am constantly washing, cleaning, picking up and moving things around, so I need something that will stay on and work.

The first thing I noticed was that I didn't do a very good first application, these were the first time I was doing them and I know that I didn't exactly make it perfect.  I did deal with a bit of lifting at the edges and also a bit of scratchy feel, but after filing them down a bit more, it seemed to take care of that.

Unfortunately for me and the amount of housework I do, they didn't last very long and by the 3rd day I had already lost one.  I am in no way blaming the nails themselves, I honestly think this is due to my own error when applying them.  I'm also sure that next time I put them on the application will run smoother and I won't have issues with them.......matter of fact I am thinking of putting them on again for Thanksgiving, so we'll see how they do then.

I do love all the designs and I think it would be quite cute to have different ones for different times of the year and holidays, and the fact that you can personalize them means you can really make them meaningful to you.

If you're interested in trying out Jamberry Nails, be sure to contact my friend Amy and check out her website, she can help you out with some stunning wraps. 

Thank you Amy for passing these along to us, we had so much fun trying them on and will definitely put them on again :)

Are theses like "paper" applications you stick on? I know they are obviously not made of paper. Or are they like the old stick on nails. I'm trying to decide if my daughters would enjoy these. The heating up of the nails is what concerns me a little. ;-)

Sandra,

These look so fun. Perhaps adding a touch of clear polish on the edges might help keep them from lifting. I can't wait to try some.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Jamberry wraps are vinyl. They stay on with adhesive and heat. They are easy to apply and are a "work horse".

Heating up the nail is no big deal. You can use the Jamberry heater, as Sandra used, or even a hair blow dryer that gets good and hot. You don't keep your finger in the heat but a few short seconds, so no danger of burning at all.

Each person has different results. Application is key. The best time to put on the Jams is in the evening, when all chores are finished for the day and they have time to adhere really well before the chores start for the next day.
If you have more questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
