“The happiest girls always have the prettiest nails.” – Tammy Taylor
Oh, yes! I totally agree with Tammy Taylor in this sentiment. From the moment you wake up in the morning, it feels great to have a glimpse of a gorgeous set of nails while drinking a cup of coffee or simply appreciating the majestic sunrise. Without much explanation, chic and fab nails are like a dream come true. It adds color to our day, whether we’re off to work, school, running errands or staying at home. Naked nails just make almost all of the girls sad. Well, count me in on that! Most of us girls have one common desire, which is to confidently get out there with flashy or elegant nails. It makes us look even more beautiful and feel good about ourselves, right? Oh well, girls will always be girls.
There’s one known challenge towards the achievement of this nail goal – the expensive trips to the salon. Imagine the amount of money you and I have to spend just to achieve our desired nails. Despite the expense, though, most nail polish or nail art designs don’t last that long, in as much as we hope it would. There are even cases when it would chip or peel just after two days. Of course, it causes us to lose our mood and would want to remove it right away or change it. Definitely, not good – at all.
Alright, so now, I believe we have the same plight and finding a solution that directly addresses this situation can mean a lot to us. Starting now, you don’t have to worry anymore, my friend. Not so long ago, the Jamberry nail wraps were invented and I was lucky enough to have known about it and experienced it firsthand. Whenever I think about it, there’s just two words I can think of – superb and easy-peasy. Want to know what I mean? Okay, then. Let me introduce it to you first.
Jamberry Nail Wraps – An Introduction
What is Jamberry?
Jamberry nail wraps thin vinyl sheets that are pressure and heat activated to adhere to your nail for a long lasting and beautiful look. It was developed by three beautiful sisters who are also nail enthusiasts – Lyndsey, Christy, and Keri back in 2010. Being a few of the many girls out there who are paying too much for nail beautifications, these sisters had an idea of creating a one-of-a-kind nail wraps that truly represent your signature style without digging a hole in your pocket by saving you trips to the nail salons.
With over 300 unique patterns, you can never run out of options and it’s not only for adults, even kids can have fun with it! A matching nail wrap design for mothers and daughters is utterly cute and cool! Aside from that, you are free to customize, layer and pair the Jamberry nail wraps to create your own personal style. The most incredible part is, you can do your nails at the comfort of your own home and on your most convenient time. While you’re doing your nails, you can still do other tasks like checking your food, answering a call or text, searching the web, etc. Pretty neat, eh? The only thing that you have to remember if you really aim to perfectly achieve flashy nails with Jamberry, is how to properly apply it.
Jamberry Nail Wrap Application: How To Properly Do It
Alright, although we’ve mentioned that the Jamberry nail wraps are easy to apply, it doesn’t mean that you can do it any way you want it. Of course, there’s an appropriate way to do it. No worries, it’s stress-free as making pancakes in the morning!
- First, prepare all the things you need, such as nail wrap (your choice from the collection), heat source (Jamberry Mini Heater or hair dryer both work very nice!), cuticle stick or rubber cuticle pusher, nail file, nail scissors, hand soap, tweezers/orange stick, acetone/ rubbing alcohol, and cotton pad/ wipe/ ball or swab.
- Next, make sure your nails are free from oils and that your cuticles are pushed back. Wash your hands with hand soap and use a rubber cuticle pusher to push your cuticles back. Using the acetone, swipe your nails clean – squeaky clean.
- Then, find the right nail wrap size for your finger using the clear backing of the wraps. As much as possible, make sure that it’s not too big in order for it to adhere. Peel back the nail wrap using the stick and cut it half with the cuticle scissors. Using the orange stick or tweezer (depends on your choice), hold the wrap in front of your heat source for 3-5 seconds and apply the wrap to the nail.
- After that, you should apply pressure while heating the wrap (do it until there are no more gaps, ridges or bubbles visible). In this process, a baggie method or technique can be used – all you have to do is wrap your nail tightly with a ziplock plastic bag, and apply heat.
- Once you’ve applied enough heat and pressure, the next step is to trim off the excess wrap. Give the nail wraps time to cool down before you file. When filing, do it gently in the downwards direction at a 90-degree angle to remove the excess.
- Finally, after doping all the steps, you can leave the nail wraps as is or apply a topcoat of your choice. Or, you can layer it – it all depends on your personal taste.
See? I told you it’s easy-peasy. You’re not even going to break a sweat! Choosing a nail wrap to use can be very challenging, especially if you have a lot to choose from. You can definitely try one first and match it with another, or you can just play with it until. All the patterns are unique and gorgeous, certainly, it’ll all look good on you! You can also design your toes with these nail wraps.
