Beautiful Nails in Minutes with Jamberry Nails & a Giveaway


2013-04-05 08.52.36

I’m not especially a girly girl.  But I do have my moments.  And considering that I live in a house with four males, I believe I definitely need to keep those moments.   Nail polish has always vexed me.  I don’t believe I have the patience or skill to apply it correctly or well.  And even on a rare occasion when I have a professional apply my polish, it is still only a matter of minutes before I smudge it.  Because of this problem, I mostly don’t wear nail polish.  In fact, when I do wear polish I mostly wear the clear variety that is almost impossible to detect errors.

I’m using the fact that I live with four guys as my excuse for never having heard of Jamberry Nails.  I like to think that I’m “in the now” regarding many items, but clearly this new nail cover had slipped past me.  The whole concept was completely foreign to me.  When I first understood that these covers are essentially stickers that fit unto your nails, I was a bit skeptical.  I was hopeful, but skeptical.  The question being- would they really stick?  I don’t live a pampered life.  I do the dishes, I pry items apart, I get dirty and rough as any mom of boys will do.  Could these nails take the abuse?  The reason I don’t wear nail polish is because of potential chips.  I certainly didn’t want to wear something that could break off or have problems.

The Jamberry Nails arrive looking like the stickers they are- on a simple sheet.  The process of application is insanely simple.

(notice my adoring three year old son peering at my nails- he loves them!)

Here is my abbreviated version of the process, you will want to visit the official Jamberry site for detailed instructions.

1. Clean your nail thoroughly.

2. Select a nail size that is right for your particular nail. (This can be a bit tricky.  This is one of those things that gets a little easier with experience)

3. Carefully remove the sticker nail with tweezers and trip some of the excess you know you won’t need.  Heat under a blow dryer for approximately 10 seconds and then adhere to your nail.  You’ll want to press down and hold for a little while.

4. Trim the excess sticker off.

5. Blow dry your nail for another 10-15 seconds.

6. File down any leftover excess.

That’s it.  It’s pretty darn slick.  But how long does it stay on?  Well, obviously this part can vary.  I can already tell that I didn’t perfect my nail quite as well as I know I can when I do it again.  Practice makes perfect, right?  But my nails have been on for a week and are still going strong.  However, I’ve had one on my toe nails for four weeks and it is still perfect.  It probably really helps that my toes never see the light of day this time of year:)

(notice my nails are not perfect, but I feel confident with a little more practice I can improve- regardless I love them!)

So what is my overall opinion of these nails?  Pure brilliance.  Yep, I’m a convert.  No more nail polish for me.  And the look on Nana’s face when she saw me put these on, makes me believe she’ll be giving them a try soon too.   Apparently I am not the only one who has never heard of them:)

I selected the funky and fun sparkly sapphire nails (I think I was trying to make up for all those years wearing clear polish:)  But there are a lot of options to choose from.  That’s the best part, of course, selecting all the fun designs and colors that are available.  It’s addictive!

  109. I must be out if the loop As well because I have never heard of these either but I love them! Really enjoyed this review and learning about jam berry nails. My favorite are the various ombre ones, kiss me ombre is my favorite. And for something a little fun, I really like grizz one….it’s not quite a paw print, which is what I was looking for, but it’s close. That’s a suggestion that I may email in to jamberry as they have several animal ones…I’d love one with a little paw print….as I’m a huge animal lover (I have eight dogs, including three rescues as well as various other rescue animals)…. There are so many and I would really love to try these out on my nals. Although I like nail polish a lot, I rarely wear it….I don’t always have the time to touch it up when it chips, which is one of the things I liked reading about these, that you’d had them on for a week and no issues…. Thanks again for the great review and also for the chance to win!

  110. They have a lot of great patterns, makes it so hard to choose a favorite but I’ll go with Paint Splatter.

  111. Tanya White says

    I like Green Snakeskin
