Jamberry Nail Wraps

Decided to try some new things this week now that the 31 day challenge is behind me. I've never had any experience with nail wraps before, so now seemed as good of a time as any to give it a go! There are a ton of nail wrap brands out there, but I decided to dip my toe in the water with this Turquoise and Silver Crosscross design by Jamberry Nail Shields.
Jamberry Nails - Turquoise & Silver Crisscross (CC02)

For having zero experience, I actually found these pretty easy to use! I have to admit that I didn't follow the directions exactly though. I sized each wrap to my finger, and cut the ends off first. I have medium length nails and I could easily get 2 uses out of the kit. The instructions said to use a blow dryer to heat each wrap for 5-10 seconds but I found that they didn't get tacky until around 20+ seconds, so I heated mine a bit longer.

Once they were sized and heated, it wasn't difficult to apply them. I didn't have any trouble with air bubbles or anything after using my other hand to smooth them. The final step was to file the tips to remove the extra wrap ends. The extra wrap didn't file off as easily as I'd hoped, and I accidentally filed a bit of one of my nails down - OOPS!

I kept the wraps on for 48 hours, and they held up nicely. Definitely going to try these again when I need an easy nail design in a hurry!



  1. I haven't used nail wraps either but they look pretty nice.

  2. These look really nice, but a blow dryer?? That seems a bit much. The Sally Hanson ones are awesome and are so easy to put on and file off easily. They stay on forever too if you need them to. :) I also love Incoco but you can only get them online so they're not as accessible.
