Have you heard of Jamberry Nails?
I hadn’t until recently, but now I’m in love! I took notice when my friend Sara kept showing up with fun, beautiful designs on her nails every time that I saw her. The designs are so teeny tiny and intricate that I wondered how it was even possible! How could a manicurist create something like that? I quickly found out that they were not something that Sara went to a nail salon to have done- she did them herself at home using Jamberry Nails nail shields.
Sara had recently discovered Jamberry herself and was so in love with wearing them that she decided to become an independent consultant! She explained to me that not only was it a great way to earn a little extra money, but it also supports her Jamberry habit. Sara’s been introducing Jamberry Nails to her friends and family- and we’re all crazy about them! She gave our friend Kim a “baby boy” design because she is expecting a baby boy next month!
Sara’s little girls love them too!
They even make clear nail shields, as Sara’s mother models here:
Last week I went over to Sara’s house so that she could do my nails. And, as you can see… I have no nails.
Sara told me that wearing the shields would actually help my nails grow- because they provide an extra layer of protection! Brilliant! They can last up to three weeks, but are easy to remove when you want to do so. I looked through the inventory that Sara had at her house to pick my design.
I decided to go with stripes.
Big shocker, right?
Each sheet comes with 18 shields (these can also be applied to your toenails!). To apply, you select the shield that most closely matches your nail and then you trim it to fit perfectly. The shields are large enough that you can easily cut one in half to cover two different nails, sometimes even three. Sara explained how to apply the nail shields as she worked on my nails, and it’s definitely something that I could easily do on my own next time. After each shield is applied, you use a blowdryer’s heat to “set” it while smoothing it down at the same time. (You only need to apply the heat for a few seconds.) There’s a video here to show you how to do it.
The nail shields are then filed down to fit your own nails perfectly.
It took about 30 minutes for my manicure, and the best part was- I didn’t have to wait for my nails to dry! I also didn’t have to worry about chipping them on the way home.
The next night, I even coordinated my nails with a striped top for a friend’s party.
I’ve had my nail shields on for almost a week, and they still look great! And let me tell you- they are definitely something that people notice. I’ve had friends, clients, even strangers compliment my nails and ask where I got them done. I rarely ever wear nail polish at all, but now I want to have my nails covered all the time!
