Jamberry Review: Are Nail Wraps Better Than Polish?

Are Jamberry nail wraps better than nail polish? Today we’re exploring these interesting Jamberry nail wraps in today’s exclusive feature!

Are you tired of painting your nails, only to have your polish chip days later? Are you tired of buying expensive bottles of polish that don’t last, or need to be applied with countless coats? (YES!) Are you skilled at polishing one hand’s nails, while the other always looks like you’ve clearly never done this before? (Raises hand.) Do you want your nails to look kick-you-know-what all the time? I know you do. Aren’t we really all after the same goal, perfectly manicured nails all the time with minimal effort?

YES.

So that’s when I decided to take a closer look at Jamberry, the latest craze you’ve probably heard about or seen on your Facebook timeline feed. Jamberry is essentially your nail polish’s nemesis… and possibly even your new BFF. Today we’re sharing an honest Jamberry review to see whether or not these nail wraps really stand up to the test. In case you haven’t heard of it yet, Jamberry is an adhesive nail wrap, sort of like a nail sticker that is applied directly to your nail. There’s no smell. No dry time. No chipping. No high cost of mainicures and pedicures that last only a few days. You can do anything while wearing these wraps– wash your hands, cook dinner, try on wedding gowns, work out, shower, etc.

Sounds too good to be true, yes? That’s what I thought, too. Just call me the skeptic. So, I brought in an expert: my sweet sister, Elise, who is bringing you guys an honest Jamberry review to give you the low-down on these nail wraps. She got hers from her friend, Diane, who is a consultant for Jamberry known as Diane’s Digits. Elise is here to tell you her step-by-step process on how to apply them, whether the process was easy or not, and how they stood up to regular wear-and-tear ten days later. And, in true sisterly fashion, I made her pinky-swear to tell the truth. So here it is!

Take it away, Elise!

Jamberry Review

My Jamberry Jamicure Experience | By Elise

My Jamberry nails from Diane’s Digits arrived in the mail today! I open the package and scream with glee. I tell myself, quiet down lady, and then I go ahead and scream anyway. But first, I realize I must wait for baby to fall asleep for some undivided Jamberry nail time.

Step 1: Gather equipment. After reading the instructions, I knew that I’d need my hair dryer, a cuticle pusher thingy doo, rubbing alcohol and a nail file. I figured I’d gather a few cotton balls for the rubbing alcohol, too. I only needed one. Darn, I dropped my hairdryer on my way to my Secret Jamberry Application Corner (SJAC) and heard sleeping baby cry out. Hold freeze position. Check video baby monitor. Pheww — baby back to sleep. Note to self: next time, gather equipment first and hide it out of reach from those cute little grubby graham-crackery baby hands.

Step 2: I’m terrified! I was never good at this kind of beauty stuff, but this design was so up my alley, so I had to have it. Plus, I have a party to go to tomorrow and I want my hands to look nice. I watch the video of how to apply. Piece of pie.

I chose Neptune, pictured here:

Step 3: I match up the nails that fit my fingers. You have many sizes to pick from, 9 sizes, to cover a total of 36 possible nails (3 manicures or you can divide them into 2 manis and 2 pedis). The backing is clear, so that makes is easy. I need scissors.

Step 4: Look for scissors. I knew I had some last week when I wrapped a present, but where did I put those? Located scissors 10 minutes later in the silverware drawer. How’d they get there? I never put them there. Never.

Step 5: Cut out nails I will be using and order them neatly on the table in finger order (pinky, ring, middle, index, thumb, thumb, index… you get the idea).

Step 6: Peel thumb off backing and hold under the hair dryer. It really only takes a few seconds to see that the nail is feeling the heat. Center on thumb and rub all around until it feels stuck there pretty well.

Step 7: Cut with scissors the excess on the end and, using a nail file, file in a downwards motion until anything extra is removed. Heat again for another few seconds and apply more pressure.

Step 8: Repeat steps 8 and 9 nine more times. And you’re done!

Well? How Do They Look?

I’m finished. And they look good! I am quite impressed with myself. I show them off to my hubby, who finds them very nice. I spend the rest of the day and the following days admiring them, while doing my regular tasks: sanitizing baby bottles, doing dishes, plugging in my phone charger, brushing my teeth, typing on my keyboard, eating Cheez-Its, putting my gloves on, removing my gloves because I can’t see my pretty nails with those things on. I am truly in awe.

Here’s an example of Neptune shown on the Jamberry site:

UPDATE: How Did They Last?

So, it is Day 10 of my Jamicure and I can’t even begin to tell you how many compliments I have had on these. They look like polish, but don’t chip like polish. I’ve done many loads of dishes, hand washing and cleaning… I notice the ends were looking a pinch rubbed off, so I actually clipped my nails and they look brand new again. I am totally impressed with these. I have always been one that likes to polish my nails, but then I got annoyed with it because it would only last for a day or two. I am a picker of the polish, and usually end up halfway through my work day with a mess as I try to pick off what I started. But these are a no-brainer for me! They are no fuss.

Today I have ordered: Double Crossed (matte), Mint Green & Gold Horizontal Pinstripe, Kiss Me Ombre, and Melt My Heart (to get ready for Valentine’s Day)! They were buy three get one free and I can’t wait for them to arrive. (They’re shown below.)

But you won’t believe the available selection; it is so hard to choose! As you can see, I love stripes!

Thanks, Elise, for the awesome review!

♥ | ♥ | ♥

So, after such a positive Jamberry review, we thought about how great they would be for weddings! Can you imagine skipping a manicure and pedicure and opting for these instead? You don’t have to pay as much money or spend time scheduling appointments. Plus, you can apply these with your wedding party at your bachelorette party or while getting ready and there’s NO mess. No spillage. No chipping. That’s like music to my ears.

Where to Get Your Jamberry Nail Wraps

You can order Jamberry from Diane’s Digits.
