Jamberry Nails

 
"Have a great Labor Day holiday!"
 Bentley and Pierre have decided to take Labor Day off this year.  Bentley mentioned the Fair Dog Act of 2014 or something.  Anyway, they are relaxing with some treats and a couple of new toys.  This leaves me to have a little fun of my own for Mischief Monday.
   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
Just click on SHOP FOR THIS PARTY on site.
you’d 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.

To see more style ideas, click here for one of many Pinterest boards.

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


We are joining our hosts My Brown NewfiesAlfie’s Blog, and Snoopy’s Dog Blog for Mischief Monday.  Have fun laughing along with these other mischievous blogs!

  2. Thanks so much! I have just spent the last half hour checking out Jamberry Nails! I appreciate the invite, but I have my own nail guy that I have had for over 20 years...yes, he does acrylics and I adore them! No, mine have never turned green?? I thank you for the invite and hope that many others check them out. They do look cool!! Enjoy your weekend!

    1. Hahaha! I know it is easy to imagine how nice the wraps would look on your nails! I loved my acrylic nails. I think because my real nails are flat, I got air & water under the acrylic ones. If it didn't always seal properly, it'd turn green. : ( These look great on acrylic nails too. Thanks for checking them out. ♥

  5. I specially like the etched leaf design, it's perfect for fall, isn't it? mom does her pawdicure at home and sometimes I let her smooth my nails too (if it takes not longer than 1.5 minutes). Have a super Labor Day!

  6. I am lucky my own nails always grow like weeds and they tend to be long all my themselves but I do have one nail on m middle finder that always splits down the middle - have been thinking of trying a nail on that one to see if I can get the split to grow out

    1. I am so jealous! I have hardly ever been able to grow my nails out. I do have a cracked thumbnail that I put the wrap on too. I am hoping it will help it grow out some. Jamberry is supposed to help that problem better than polish.

    1. It really is, that's why I wanted to share it. I've never used anything so quick and pretty before. ☺

  8. Mom is so thankful she has thick strong nails that grow and grow. Every Sunday night is nail night, no mischief allowed because we can't cause a polish incident! She can't imagine those that have nail issues. We just see them as her colorful claws and could care less, but she loves her nails. Happy Labor Day!

    1. Your mom is one of my friends that I thought of when I tried Jamberry nail wraps. I noticed that her nails always look nice. With these, she can scratch your belly only seconds after applying them! ☺

  11. You can put them on your PETS nails?? Uh oh girls watch out :D
    We don't have them here (not that I have seen at least) but I have a lovely friend on the States that sent me over some gorgeous chevron ones to try! They are truly magnificent!

  12. These look pretty cool!! I don't have time to look at them tonite, but I plan to come back and do so. I think they would definitely be worth a try. Sometimes I do OK with polish, sometimes it's a mess! I started going to get manicures but haven't found any place I like yet to get them done. My friend is getting married next month, and maybe we'll do these instead of going to get manicures!

  13. Oh, those are pawsome!!! Ma hates paintin' her nails cause she can't sit still long enough not to smudge them! Ma had acrylic nails many moons ago, buts they were gettin' too expensive so she took them off. (that was not a good six months waiting for her own nails to grow back!) Anyhu, those are a great option fursure! Ma is gonna come back and really take a good look! Thanks for the invite!
    Kisses,
    Ruby ♥

  14. Those nails look super cute! I can't imagine letting my Mum put them on me, there's no way I'd sit still long enough for that!

    I hope you're having a fun day,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  15. I got some of these in a People VIP subscription box and never used them... because I didn't have any nails then! I was looking at some nail wraps at the grocery store yesterday and really wanted to buy some, but a couple of my nails are really short right now so I wasn't sure... very cute though!

  16. Cool! These look so cute...I see them a lot in stores, but never tried them. Maybe I'll give them a shot one day instead of painting my nails myself or going to the nail salon. Thanks for sharing :)
