my thoughts on jamberry nail wraps


today's conversation is dedicated to nail talk. grab yourself a cup of coffee & join me.


it's confession time.
i've become a nail art addict.


it all started when one of my gal pals walked into one of our weekly coffee dates with the cutest nails. i couldn't stop staring at her hands... it was getting awkward. 

of course, when i first heard of jamberry, i laughed. i mean, WHO would do that?! stickers for your nails. weird.

never say never, my friends. 

we had a bit of a conversation about her nails & before i knew it, i was at my sweet friend's home for her jamberry party. we spent the evening eating cookies, sipping on drinks & giving ourselves fun little manicures. love at first application, y'all.


friends, it's like a burst of tiny rainbow color on your fingertips! 

plus, jamberry is straight up tough. that was honestly the selling point for me. i even did a little test - i took photos of my nails every week. after three weeks of gardening work, renovating our church, scrubbing dishes & simply living life - my nails still looked decent & even cute. 

right then & there, i became a jamberry believer.


you won't find me selling jamberry anytime soon. it's a hobby & something i simply love doing to feel pretty. when i find something i love so much, i just like sharing it. 

i did recently host a jamberry party for my local gals & wanted to share my party here (you can click the link, choose my party & purchase a wrap to try it out if you'd like! just a heads up - each wrap is $15 & equals two full manicures & two full pedicures.).


through my recent nail obsession, i've also found my favorite line of nail polish:


sinful colors by walgreens dries quickly, applies evenly, chips less often & costs less than two bucks a bottle. cheap! i apply it to my accent nails along with my jamberry for a fun quirky look.

if you have never applied jamberry,  it can feel daunting but it's honestly so easy. here's a great tutorial on applying jamberry (instead of using a heater, just use your blowdryer!). i'd also recommend the plastic bag trick as shown here.  

what are some of your favorite beauty practices for making you feel pretty?
love,
natalie

p.s. just as a heads up - i get zero money for this recommendation of jamberry; these are my own thoughts & opinions. if you do decide to purchase some jamberry nail wraps from my link, i do get credit toward free wraps. xo.

I can't wait to try these out, but I have one problem. I have to buy a blowdryer! My friends are making fun of me. But I can't fathom buying a blowdryer JUST for my nails... Also, I LOVE Sinful Colors. I wrote a review on it a while back. Definitely agree! http://beingmrsolson.blogspot.com/2014/07/sinful-colors-nail-color-review.html

Natalie, you should just buy the heater! It's $20 & amazing for craft projects!!! :)

I was wondering what kind of flowers are in the first picture. Thanks!

I love my jamberry nails, too! A ridiculous portion of my "self-care" budget has been going towards them since June.

I've never been a nail girl. I mess them up too quick. But yours look fantastic!

Kind of unrelated, but where did you get that adorable black and white dress/top in the first picture? I LOVE it!!

I got my blow dryer at a yard sale for $3!
HTH!
