Jamberry Nail Wraps
Morning everyone, I mentioned a few posts back that I have a new love in my life, Jamberry nail wraps. A friend became an independent consultant for them last year and she offered me a free sample. Now at the time I didn't really 'DO' my nails, I never seemed to have the time to varnish them for it then to chip and look a mess with in a couple of days, I would varnish them if I were going out some nice but thats all. So when my friend offered me a free sample I had the 'these won't be for me' attitude. I tried the 7 day challenge, which is take 1 wrap, that you cut in half, apply to two nails (I did one on each hand) then paint the rest of your nails (I used a 7 day varnish) and then see which holds up best to everyday life. The wraps or the varnish. Needless to say the wraps won! from then on I was hooked (pun intended)
Once I had worn my wraps for the 7 days I wandered about buying a full set, I then discovered that there is over 300 designs currently for the UK market but also exclusive wraps for special holidays, annual charity wraps, plus a monthly Sister's Style. I was spoilt for choice, no idea which ones to get. I thought 'don't run before you walk' try another 7 day challenge but again the wraps won.
That was it for me, I like having pretty nails but won't pay salon prices and I find high street varnishes don't last. When I removed my 2nd set of wraps I felt a bit lost with out them, so took the plunge and bought the full kit. Now this isn't something I would normally do but I kinda fell in love with them. From then on I have pretty nails all the time. I now get a couple of hours 'me time' each time a change them, now I could have had that before but I didn't realise that. I always thought I was too busy, not enough hours in the day etc. Not anymore. I get myself organised with my kit, grab a drink and sit merrily playing with my nails for an hour or two. Here are some photo's of my wraps since I bought my kit.
They even held up against decorating!
This is what my nails looked like once I had removed them. Perfect.
This last photo is my "Plum Polka Dot' wraps which I applied 11 days ago and they are still going strong.
I have started a Facebook group if you would like to learn more about them, just click the link.
