Have you heard of Jamberry? Jamberry nails are a new and innovative way to avoid nail polish drying time, chipping, and pricey visits to the salon. They are a DIY DREAM. They come in over 300+ designs (plus a nail art studio where you can design your own!), lasts up to 2 weeks on fingernails and 6 weeks on toenails, and WILL NOT CHIP. They are a vinyl adhesive wrap that is heat activated and pressure sealed to the nail. They will NOT damage your nail when removed properly.
I will admit that I wasn't sold on the idea of Jamberry at first. I tried the wraps once using my hairdryer. It seemed to take a while and then they didn't last as long as I had hoped. So when my cousin asked me to try them again, I was hesitant, but I promised to give them a fair shot. Let me tell you that the right tools make all of the difference!!!
If you use the Jamberry Mini-Heater then the process is MUCH faster and more effective. My hairdryer just did not get the wraps hot enough, I don't think. My cousin also showed me an even better way of applying the wraps using the TruShine Gel Enamel System. The Gel Enamel System allows you to get the salon gel polish done right at home! But paired with the wraps, you have a ton of possibilities.You simply apply the gel base coat. Then apply the wrap of your choice (or your TruShine color). Finish with the gel top coat. I loved this way of applying the wraps because I like that after the top coat, my nails still feel "painted."
