|"Have a great Labor Day holiday!"|
Let me start by saying that I love pretty fingernails, manicures, and polish. I will add to that the fact that I have stubby, flat fingernails and never find the time to sit and let nail polish dry. I don’t think that I have ever managed a home manicure without at least a tiny botch. I try to sit down and paint them, waving my arms around so they will dry before my nose itches or my phone rings. It never fails that I gouge at least one of them before they dry. I used to have acrylic nails and found them beautiful, expensive, and with a tendency to turn my nails green. Ugh! Is there any solution out there?
Enter Jamberry Nails and the answer to every bad nail polish job ever! My daughter-in-law’s
sister, Jamie started wearing Jamberry nails and was so impressed with them, that she became a representative. I went over to visit yesterday and try the nails. It didn’t take but one nail to have me sold! Let me make that clear, these are not actual nails. These are nail wraps and come in every color and pattern imaginable.
Let me tell you how incredibly easy these nail wraps are to use.
1. Push back cuticle and clean nails with a nail prep wipe or rubbing alcohol. When applying wraps over lacquer apply a fresh coat and allow to dry.
2. Match nail (finger or toe) to the nail wrap that best fits.
3. Peel off nail wrap and warm with a blow dryer for 3 - 5 seconds or until soft and flexible. (Hold wrap with tweezers in front of blower, you can see it get soft)
4. When warm press the wrap onto the nail. Apply firm pressure around edges to adhere the wrap to the nail.
5. Trim the top with scissors and file off remaining wrap using a downward motion to remove any excess.
6. Apply heat and pressure to the wrap again until it is bonded to the nail.
*This entire process takes maybe one minute per nail total.
**You can also watch an easy YouTube video here.
To remove the wraps, reheat them or use a nail polish remover. Each sheet of nail wraps is enough for two manicures and two pedicures. Under normal wear, they should last at least two weeks. I can honestly say that I was blown away at how simple they were to apply. I have spent more time trying to paint my right hand nails than it took me to wrap all ten nails.
After admiring my new nails, I thought it would be fun to host an online Jamberry party to introduce y’all to these cool nail wraps. You can click on this link to go to my party page. *Don’t pay attention to the time & date. The party is open from today until September 15th. If
like to place an order, you will receive your order approximately September 25th.

As you will soon see, there are hundreds of styles and colors. They don’t have any dog or cat prints, but you CAN design your own or upload a photo to have printed on your nail wraps. I am thinking of a paw print design and a Basset Hound silhouette for myself. The nail wraps that you design do cost more ($18.75 & $6.00 set-up fee). The collegiate wraps are $17.50 and include most of your favorite sports and teams. All of their other styles are $15.00 and all are buy three get one free. Guess what? You can safely put them on your pet’s nails too! Believe me, there are so many to choose from that you will have a blast looking at them.

These are just a few to give you an idea of the styles available. Have fun shopping! ☺
