So you’ve probably figured out by now that I have a thing for nail polish. I love wearing the latest colors and I change my polish regularly. I have tried a few times to do fun designs on my nails but I’m far from an expert. I was recently sent some samples from Jamberry Nails to try and wanted to share with you my experience.
So, what are Jamberry Nails? Jamberry Nails are non-toxic, vinyl based nail shields. They are sort of like stickers for your nails that come in super cool designs and you use instead of nail polish. They last up to two weeks on your nails which is definitely longer than my nail polish lasts.
Of course, they really aren’t stickers. You basically start with a clean, dry nail that has no polish on it. You shape and buff your nail and push back the cuticle. Then you find a Jamberry Nail shield that matches the shape of the nail you want to apply it to. Using your hair dryer, you warm the nail shield until it is flexible. Then you apply it to the nail and apply firm pressure. Trim carefully and apply heat again to seal it to the nail.
This is how my nails normally look but I removed the polish from one nail to try out Jamberry Nails. They took a bit of getting used to in order to apply them. I think after a couple tries I managed pretty well. I think I still have a bubble or two in there that I didn’t get out completely but with a bit more practice I’m sure I’ll have it down.
The Jamberry Nail shown in my top photo is their Teal Mini Polka and you can purchase a whole set from their site right now. They have some super cute Halloween designs on their site right now that I am so tempted by. I think I need to practice a bit more.
Have you ever tried Jamberry Nails?
