Summertime is all about barefoot and sandals and is the perfect time for bright and cheerful pedicures and manicures so we can put our best foot forward. Jamberry nails makes it easy and fun – my friend Misty recently sent a sample of summertime to me and my girls and I had a blast together fancying up one another’s nails. Let me share with you about our first Jamberry experience and then be sure to enter our fantastic giveaway at the end of this post!
In my package we received: an application kit and a half set of regular sized nail wraps and a sample of junior sized nail wraps. The instructions included were easy to follow and the wraps took only a few minutes to apply. Maybe these should be called Marvelous Manicure in Minutes!
6 Easy Steps to a Marvelous Summertime Manicure or Pedicure:
- Trim, file, clean nails.
- Peel nail wrap from backing and heat with hair dryer (or the mini Jamberry Heater) for 3-5 seconds, until soft and pliable
- Place on nail, adhesive side down. (oops, I see my photo has steps 3 and 4 mixed up, but you get the picture!)
- Firmly press down with rubber cuticle stick (provided in application kit)
- Trim nail wrap along top edge of nail with manicure scissors.
- Give nail wraps another rubbing to firmly secure all edges to your nail and then stand back and admire!
The nail wraps were easy to apply. I felt a little uncoordinated at first, but quickly found my groove. The only thing I would do differently is to choose a regular sized set for my youngest daughter. She has larger, oval-shaped nail beds, and even the largest sized nail wrap on the junior page did not quite cover her thumb nail.
I’m impressed with the durability of these nail wraps – – my 13 year old daughter applied one on the pinky of each hand, and painted the rest a coordinating color – very cute! After 3 days, polish was wearing away a bit, but Jamberry Nail Wrap was looking good!
And then after another week, including 4 days camping/hiking/fossilhunting/swimming, not much polish left, but oh those Jamberry Nails!
After trying these nail wraps, we all agree we would do it again. Especially for holidays and special occasions. You can find 100’s of styles of nail wraps at Misty’s Jamberry website. I really like the french manicures and we have our eyes on a set of Mommy and me wraps. Right now they have a special going on – Buy 3 pages of wraps and Get 1 FREE! Perfect for adding to everyone’s Back to School wardrobe.
