Jamberry Nails. These are laminated nails that stick on by heat application; they are not nail polish. It's a do-it-yourself manicure that, for me, took over an hour to do. But.....I am not the fussiest, most careful, nor the most patient person with this sort of thing. It was a challenge for me especially since this set is clear on the bottom. Perhaps if they had been a color or pattern, it might have been easier for my 52 year old eyes to see better while applying them. Nonetheless, I did it, and honestly, I'm pretty proud of how they turned out. Imperfect, but good enough for this ranchwife. My hands look rather feminine and fancy! The Jamberries make my nails look longer than they really are. They barely peek past the top of my fingertips, but the way this French-tip manicure is designed, it makes my short nails look longer. I like that.
So far, I've only been wearing the Jamberries two days, and I admit that I have not been particularly careful with them. I should be. I've washed cast iron skillets with a Curly Kate, I've scraped sticky glue adhesive off a bottle with my nails (mistake), I've been working up at the shed too, so I've not treated my nails with much care. Therefore, I have had to trim the ends a wee bit on some of my most-used-nails. I found that if I warmed up the bottom of a tweezer over a candle and pressed my Jamberry wrap down it worked to re-adhere a little edge that was coming up.
It is said that the nail wraps should last about two weeks. We'll see. Have any of you tried Jamberry Nail Wraps? If you are going to, be sure to watch a few YouTube videos first. I started in without doing it and messed up a couple of my wraps. Oh well, now I know better. If you have tried Jamberry Nails, will you use them again? Did they hold up well for you?
Now.... back to patting the dog.
