Have you tried Jamberry nail wraps? Or even ever heard of them? Up until about a month ago, I never knew they existed! But once I saw them, I must admit I was intrigued.
You see, I am not one to paint my nails or get manicures all that often. At all. Like, hardly ever. I like the put-together look you can achieve when your nails coordinate with your outfit, but I just rarely take the time to do it. I mean, painting my nails and waiting for them to dry is the equivalent of waiting in line at the DMV to me. I just don't like to do it.
But, thanks to Pinterest, I have been drooling over all of the uber cute nails that it seems every woman in the world but me are taking the time to apply. I just don't have two hours to spend on my nails, people, to get those fancy schmancy designs. Ain't gonna do it.
So, then I found some nail wraps at Ulta. They were so cute! And were fairly easy to apply. But then they peeled off two days later. Then, I found some nail wraps at Rite-Aid and decided to give those a try. Seriously, they peeled the very same night I applied them! Boo!
Then enters Jamberry Nail Wraps. My old college friend, Rachel, is a Jamberry Nails consultant. She sent me a trial sheet to try out. I was already smitten over all the designs, so I was more than happy to give it a go, really hoping that these would stand up to the test!
What makes Jamberry different from other nail wraps is that they are a high-quality vinyl, heat and pressure sealed wrap that lasts for a couple weeks. They sell all the tools you need through Jamberry, but since I just had a sample set, I found everything I needed to apply them at the Dollar Tree and Wal-Mart. I used my hair dryer to heat-set the nail wraps.
I used my two girls as guinea pigs first. Katlyn picked out the rainbow colored cheetah print and orange polish for her other nails, and Ashlyn picked out a pink/blue design and blue polish for the rest of her nails. (We just did a couple fingers since we only had a sample pack.) They weren't difficult to put on and my girls loved them! (Jamberry sells Juniors and Mommy and Me selections.)
Then, it was my turn. I had a few black and white options so I decided to combine them for unique black/white look (the pinkish red color is just polish). I loved how they came out. And once they were on, heat sealed and pressed on tight, they weren't budging.
I mean, once you get these things on, you're going to want everyone to see your "jamicure"! So, I thought of four of ways you could ever so nonchalantly show them off. Here they are.
1. I got five problems but a bad manicure ain't one!
2. What? The Blacklist won't be back on until the fall? Oh, my!
3. Which Jamberry wrap would I like to try next? Hmmmm?
4. I saved so much time on my "Jamicure", I have time for a nap! *yawn*
Katlyn and Ashlyn wanted to show off their jams, too! They loved them!
Here are a few of my favorite nail wrap selections available right now that I found while browsing the Jamberry site. (The ones that are smaller are the Mommy and Me ones.)
They have so much to choose from for you or your little ones. They have anything from solids, sparkles, and stripes to florals, geometric, and collegiate designs.
