Pretty Nails! ~ Jamberry Nail Review

I'm terrible at keeping my nails pretty and polished.  I own two bottles of nail polish ( I'm pretty sure one should be thrown out, and the other I actually won).  

I've had just a few manicures in my life, one being before our wedding.  On the way out of the salon I chipped my shellac manicure.  And shellac is quite tough.  

So the point of all that is to say that baring special occasion my nails stay unpainted and undone.

But I still like them to look cute so when Nicole asked me if I was interested in trying Jamberry nails I decided it might be a good fit for me. Jamberry nail wraps are available in hundreds of colors and designs and last longer than a traditional manicure or pedicure.

She sent me a mini sheet to try out.   I painted most of my nails with the plan to use the nail wraps as an accent.  I picked the black and white wraps to go with the bright pink nails I had (although that was my only nail color choice...)  

I had a little trouble with the first one.  I'm not sure if I didn't heat it long enough, and then I had a hard time cutting it straight, but it got easier as I did a few more, and I 'think' I could probably master a whole hand now.

Overall I think they are much easier and look sooooo much better that painting my nails.   The next day my nails were already needing a touch up.
My nails are chipping already: 1 day

The thumb nail wrap did fall off after a few days, but that's because I didn't put it on correctly, and now that I know where I went wrong that shouldn't happen again.

After 4 days my nail wrap is looking great, but my
other nails not so much.
