Jamberry Nail Shields in Black Damask Review;

hi :) a few weeks ago, Andrea - an independent consultant of Jamberry Nails - kindly sent me a sample sheet of one of the many Jamberry Nail Shields to review. i chose Gold & Black Damask.



the red i used is two coats of OPI's Bullish on OPI. this mani lasted me 3 days -- considering one of the three days were spent at the beach and the other two days were spent working and playing volleyball, i think they lasted well.

so sorry, i dont have a picture of the nail shields in the package to share :( but, for $15, you get a sheet of 9 different size nail shields; for my mani, i had 6 of my nails covered and i only ended up using 3 of the nail shields. so you get a good amount for the price. because Jamberry Nails shields are good for both manicures and pedicures, the sizes of the nail shields are very varied.

the nail shields were easy to work with. you simply use your blow-dryer and apply~ the great thing about the Jamberry nail shields is that they're not too thin nor too thick; although they arent too stretchy, they are easy to work with. i noticed that when an edge of the nail shield on my nail started to lift, all i had to do was run my blow-dryer for a few seconds over the spot that is lifting ... press down on the spot for a few seconds, and then the the nail shield would be back down! a quick and easy fix~

again, a big thanks to Andrea of Jamberry Nails. be sure to check out the site :)

have a good one!,

  2. Quick question, are those anything like the sally hanson nail stickers? I bought some and only used 1, when I went back to use more on my nect mani they were all dried up so they didn't stick. Since then I've been apprehensive to buy nail stickers

    1. like Andrea said, they're not like the Sally Hanson nail stickers. the Jamberry nail shields are thicker ... they're sticky on the back but they stay on with the heat from the blow dryer and a bit of pressure.

  3. Hi there! I'm Andrea, the independent consultant. These are NOT like the Sally Hanson ones, as these are made of thin vinyl, not polish. I just put some on that I've had since April (colorful argyle just FYI). I'd love to assist you if you have any questions! My email address is on the site. Thanks for the review!!

  5. They seem to be more like minx nails. I like it and they seem easy to do. Do you think you will do a tutorial on them?

    @Andrea, Vinyl like car wraps?

    Thanks

    1. hi Jocelyn. im not sure if i'll have time to record a tutorial -- not to mention, my camera is dead :( i'll try to make a tutorial if i get a new camera soon~

    2. I guess a little like car wraps but VERY thin vinyl. No chipping or peeling. You can find a ton of videos for application on YouTube if that's what you're looking for! Feel free to contact me directly!

  7. Jamberry nail shields sound really cool. I didn't realize it uses heat to attach, that's really interesting :-) We only get Sally Hansen's polish strips here, so I've not been lucky enough to try Jamberry myself, but if they last that well, I might order them from abroad.
