Jamberry nails review and application demo

Are your nails jammin yet?! If they are not, let me introduce you to this cool trend for glamorous nails- Jamberry nail wraps.

Nail wraps have been a huge trend these past years, mostly because they offer the commodity of getting cool designs on your nails right at home, and they are less expensive than going to your local nail salon. But what makes Jamberry nail wraps so special? Keep reading for a review on application, overall product and a video demo for accurate application of the wraps.

I first heard about Jamberry nail wraps through a Facebook party hosted by one of my friends. The Jamberry consultant, Theresa, was very informative and kept the virtual party interesting with contests and lots of pictures of various designs offered by Jamberry. If you want to learn more about hosting your own Jamberry party or becoming a consultant, contact Theresa here.

Throughout the party, Theresa offered free samples so you could try out the wraps before committing. Which I definitely took advantage of, and received a lace and floral wrap sample to check out. Each sample was good for two nails, and I used the scraps as tips for a fun look on a classic French. Below are pictures of the wraps on my nails for your viewing pleasure 🙂

Jamberry lace and floral  nails review

I loved the designs! They look very fashionable and definitely don’t look like stick-ons. As far as appearance, I’d say Jamberry knows what they’re doing. The designs are very nice, and the selection is great to satisfy different tastes.

The application process looked pretty simple, but be warned follow everything by the book to be sure your wraps last a week or two and don’t fall off sooner. The video below is a great tool for those of you who are visual learners. I also included step by step application if that’s more your style.

Pros:

  • You get to change the design on your nails to match your mood, or event you’ll be attending.
  • One sheet of nail wraps will last you a few uses, so it’s definitely less expensive than going to the nail salon.
  • You can host your own Jamberry party and invite friends to check out the nail wraps, while you score some free stuff. (Depending on sales made during party)
  • If you know what you’re doing, application time is pretty quick.
  • No drying time or waiting under the UV light, and no damage to natural nails. This makes Jamberry nail wraps great to apply on your daughters, nieces or any youngster in your life- or even better throw a Jamberry nail wrap makeover party 🙂

Cons:

  • The application process might be a little tricky for some. As mentioned don’t rush your first time, and check out the demo video before trying it out.
  • This might not necessarily be a con of the product, but you don’t get that salon experience. Some women like getting pampered or planning a salon trip with their friends.

Overall, I’m pretty happy I got the opportunity to learn about Jamberry nail wraps and try them out for myself. They are definitely worth buying if you are the type of girl who loves changing up her nail color/design, and are open to saving money by skipping salon visits.

Kiss nail dress review

Dress your nails in pretty designs within minutes with Kiss sticky nail strips.

The box comes with twenty eight strips which can be used on finger and toenails.  I got mine in “Bustier ” at Luckys for $6.99. They also had zebra designs in black and white and neon colors. Pretty much you size a strip to match your nail, stick it on your nail, fold the excess, and file down. It’s said to last up to ten days,  but can also be easily removed.

Overall I was very satisfied with this product. It was also much simpler than I expected. Took me under ten minutes, and I had pretty nails with a gorgeous design right at home. I hope they deliver,as stated on the box and do last ten days. I will post an updated picture and status in a few.

*UPDATE: Check out the picture below. It was taken 12 days after I applied my nails. Kiss nail dress does as promised and lasts for up to 10 days! Besides the fact my nails grew, the nail stickers themselves remained in pretty good condition.
