Honest Review of Jamberry Nail Wraps {and a giveaway for you!}


Jam GraphicI’m sure you’ve heard of Jamberry Nail Wraps, right? Unless you’ve been under a rock, you have probably been approached by a friend or family member to try them out. I must admit, I was hesitant at first because I barely have time for someone else to do my nails…  how in the world would I have time to fiddle around and do them myself?

Then, I got the 2014 Fall/Winter catalog.

There are a ton of gorgeous styles that even the most talented nail techs would have difficulty replicating – everything from nautical inspired designs to Frozen to candy cane wraps!

Magically, a box of Jamberry Nail Wraps appeared on my door step from Independent Consultant Janet Malefors to use and honestly review them for our readers.

Observation #1: The packaging is gorgeous! As a stylist, I believe firmly in beautiful packaging. Opening the box feels like bliss.

Once opened, I quickly read the directions and started applying. Basically, gather a blow dryer and the items in the kit (scissors, file, cuticle press) and begin measuring your first nail.

Observation #2: A cave man (or woman) could figure this out! The directions were super clear and easy. I applied 3-5 seconds of heat, trimmed the excess wrap and applied more heat. With only 45 seconds per nail from start to finish, I had my whole hand done!

Jam CollageOverall, given how easy and fun these nail wraps are, there may be hope for those busy, BUSY women out there like me who have surrendered to ugly hands. I give these things TWO THUMBS UP! After my pleasant experience, and being a small business owner myself, I wondered what the story behind Jamberry Nail Wraps was.

From Jamberrynails.net:

The story of Jamberry Nails begins with three sisters who possess distinct personal tastes, but share a love for style. After an expensive afternoon together at the nail salon, Lyndsey, Christy and Keri vowed to find a simpler, more cost effective way to keep their hands looking polished, while still spending time together. 

After lots of trial and error, the proprietary nail wraps of Jamberry Nails launched in late 2010. The DIY, at-home application and incredible variety of designs caught on quickly and sales soared. A new era of nail art was born. 

Gone are the days of nails that chip and flake after only a few days! Gone are the days of the single colored manicure. Gone are the mani/pedis that take all afternoon and most of your cash too! Jamberry nail wraps arm you with style and confidence while demanding very little of your time or money.

Observation #3: I have a 3 1/2 year old… I could probably do her little nails or toes with the excess trim from my Jamberry Manicure!

Thank you so much to Janet for providing these wraps. I can’t wait to order some for myself, and I certainly hope you do too! Visit her Jamberry website or Facebook page for easy ordering of all the designs you can imagine. Although great for yourself, these babies would make thoughtful and stylish gifts, especially for the upcoming holiday season – any chic lady would be thrilled with some of her own.

  1. I’d love to try the rose gold or stone tip (mid). Not super exciting but traditional manicures always chip within a day or two so I go for something that isn’t as noticiable when it does.

  2. Tweeted! OMG-apparently I WAS living under a rock bc I’ve never heard of this genius nail art! Or maybe I have and just knee deep in sleep deprivation w/the little one! Really cute designs!!
