Manicure Monday: Featuring Jamberry Nails in Faded Bouquet
One of my lovely friends was hosting an online Jamberry Party, where we were able to interact with a consultant and see what kind of products and designs were available, and we actually got a chance to sample a wrap as well! If you are interested in hosting a party, check out their site here.
~ Thank you Vivian for hosting the party and Kelly for providing the samples and lovely insight on all the Jamberry products! ~
There was only a limited number of designs we could have chose from for our sample, and I decided to choose the Faded Bouquet.
On my other nails are two coats of Loreal in Royally Yours, which is a pretty blue pastel shade.
Application was pretty easy, for the most part. They provide a list of directions on their site on how to apply the nail wrap. I find that a nail cutter, nail file, and cuticle pusher were necessary to get the wrap to look nicely on the nail. I was actually too lazy to use a hair dryer, so I used the heat from my laptop to warm it up (It worked! I'm lazy... but resourceful!) Using scissors was tough for me especially after I trimmed most of the wrap off and there was just a little bit hanging off, but still too much to file down. I used a nail cutter to get it right along the tip of my nails and then filed away to smooth it out. All I had to do then was to put my finger near my laptop fan to make sure it adhered onto the nail.
Removal time wasn't too terrible. I was happy I didn't have it on all my fingers though. I used a cotton pad soaked with nail polish remover and let it soak for a bit. I got lazy with this process as well, and attempted to just peel off the wrap. It worked out, not as easily as I'd hoped! (I probably should've let it soak longer.)
Overall, I had a good experience trying out the nail wrap. I personally prefer just using regular nail polish, but these nail wraps are good quality and there are a lot of designs available that would be hard for me to mimic. While I don't think I picked a designed I loved 100%, it still looked really cute on my nails. Application and removal process was not difficult either! These nail wraps are definitely not something I'd personally use frequently, but rather on special occasions to amp up my nail look. 8.5/10!
I hope you enjoyed my Mani Monday! Take care always!
