Jamberry: the solution for nail smudging

Several months ago my stepmom gave me some Jamberry nail wraps, but I hadn’t gotten the courage to try them out yet. I’m big on low effort adventures and I was convinced these would be way too hard.

I’m happy to report I was wrong (for the most part!). I’ll admit they’re still not as easy as polish, BUT you lose the risk of smudging (which always happens to me. Because: who’s got time to wait for those things to dry completely?!).

Before I took the plunge, a friend recommended dipping my toe in the Jamberry water (pun intended) by trying one as an accent nail. My sweet Jamberry consultant (Salinda Howell) had given me some samples so I flipped through and picked one to try. I’ve been in a gray-polish-mood lately so the Wisteria sample was perfect!

I tried the Early Bird Jamberry print for my first Jamberry pedicure.

This week I tried a full manicure with the Mint Green & Gold Horizontal Pinstripe Jamberries.

Here are a few helpful videos on how to apply them:

  • short video on the baggie method:
  • a longer (but more helpful!) demonstration of how to apply the Jamberries:

If you are interested in trying out Jamberries, consider ordering from my party! If you’d like to try out a few samples, let me know and I can chat with Salinda (or send her a message on her Facebook page) about getting you some to try!

My name is Jordan. I'm a full-time working mom whose coffee cup is always half full (and probably still in the microwave). I've got a weak spot for rescuing old dogs, pretending pizza is a vegetable, negotiating dessert with every meal, propagating more plants than any home needs, dreaming of sewing projects while my husband is talking to me, and loving my tribe too deep.
