I've been hearing a lot about Jamberry Nails and was curious what it was all about. Basically they are nail decals that you apply using a bit of heat and they are supposed to last longer than a traditional manicure with nail polish.
A sheet of nails (20 decals) costs $15. Before I committed to buying a sheet, I wanted to first try it out to see if it even worked! Fortunately, a former coworker was hosting an online Jamberry Nail party and the consultant, Christina was offering to send anyone a free sample!
I did quite a bit of research on the best way to apply the decals online before I actually did it myself. The website offered some helpful advice, but the YouTube videos of non-Jamberry Nail employees were better.
The suggested supplies needed are:
A source of heat
I only had a few of the suggested supplies, but my nails turned out fine. I found the decals a little difficult to peel off the sheet, so I used some tweezers to do that and I also used the tweezers to hold the decal while I was warming it up with my hair dryer. The orange stick is supposed to be used to smooth out the decal as you are applying it to your nail, but I used a finger on my opposite hand and that worked out fine. I actually would suggest you use cuticle scissors like I did to cut the edge of the decal instead of using the nail file. The nail file didn't work out for me.
