Hi All, I was recently approached by a jamberry consultant Bertina, to review nail wraps for them. I agreed and I was provided with some very pretty nail wraps to review. Now those of you don't know, Jamberry nail wraps are sold through independent consultants (like my friend Bertina) and have a basic cost of $15/sheet, with enough wraps for 2-3 applications, depending on how you allocate them. They work for both fingers and toes. For this review, I didn't try them on my toe nails but on my fingernails. Nail Polish used on my other finger nails is Sally Hansen's Chic Pink.
Applying this nail wraps is pretty easy.
1. Clean unpolished nails with alcohol wipes and push back the cuticles.
2. Match nail to the nail wrap that best fits.
3. Peel off nail wrap and warm with a blow-dryer or mini-heater for 3-5 seconds or until soft and flexible.
4. When warm, press the wrap onto the nail. Apply firm pressure around the edges to adhere the wrap to the nail. Use rubber cuticle pusher to seal the wrap around the base of the cuticle.
5. Trim the top with scissors and file off remaining warp to remove the excess.
6. Apply heat and pressure to the wrap again until it is bonded to the nail.
To purchase them, you can go to Bertina's website by clicking HERE.
To remove these nail wraps is pretty easy too. All I had to do was, to peal off the wrap from where it was coming off and the use nail polish remover to clean the nails.
Below is my personal review of how these nail wraps faired on my 7-Day trial of them. Now some of you think that since I have perfect nails all the time, I sit around pretty through out the day. Which is not true, being a software engineer, my fingers are typing on the computer all day long. After that at home I am doing regular chores like cooking, cleaning, dusting, dishes, laundry, etc, like any other regular woman. So these nail wraps survived all these activities on the 7-Day trial and this is now they faired:
This is what nail wrap looked like on my nails on Day 1, I applied them on my middle and ring finger:
This is how they looked like on Day 4, still going pretty strong.
On Day 6, the wrap started wearing off from the tips of the nails.
On Day 7, I could see the wrap coming off from corners.
After Day 7, I took off the nail wrap as mentioned above. I must say I was pretty impressed by these nail wraps. My previous experience with leading polish brand nail wraps haven't been good and that's why you never see my posting any nail wrap pics on my Blog. If you are looking for an easy way to decorate your digits without going through a lot of trouble of painting and designing your nails with polish, this is the perfect solution for you. And after 6-7 days you can always change them to other pretty designs that Jamberry has to offer. I am pleased with them so far and will definitely be using more of their wraps on my nails again.
