JAMMIN' WITH JAMBERRY - A REVIEW

Whew!! It's been a busy weekend for me so far. Since me and my brilliant self thought redoing the bathroom was a "great" idea, I've been working on refinishing the cabinets. Thus, my absence of a blog post last night. I was too tuckered to even write one up.

Recently I was sent some Jamberry nail wraps to try. I'll be totes honest here; I was not really expecting much. My previous experience with another brand was less than stellar. I found them difficult to work with and way too fragile. I think I ripped as many as I managed to get on my fingers. 

I didn't receive full sets, but I received several cute designs so I could do an accent nail. Also not really my thing, but I'm liking what I did here.
Essie Turquoise & Caicos Jamberry
Cute, right? That little Jamberry sucker fit my pinkie perfectly!  Then I went to my "green drawer" and found a green that matched, Essie Turquoise & Caicos. I wanted a way to bring in the red of the cherries. What's that you say? I little sliver of a french tip would work? Hellz, yeah, it works. It works like nobody's business. I'd tell you the name of the red if it had one, which it doesn't, but it's Color Club.

I have to tell ya', I am actually really impressed with these. They are thicker and sturdier than the Sally Hansen. You peel them off the sheet, heat 'em with a blow dryer for 15 seconds and then apply. Once they're warm, they are nice and pliable, and I had no issues with crinkles or bubbles.  

Since I've been refinishing stuff, my hands have been in water a ton over the last two days. You'd faint if you saw how dry the skin is around my fingers right now. I had to really load on the cuticle stuff just to take this picture. That pinkie looks as good now as it did when I put it on. I'm seriously kind of wondering how hard it will be to get it off! lol

Jamberry nails come in a TON of cute styles. Check them out and order here: JamWithShea - You'll find classic, fun and classy styles, something for every taste. They get a big "pinkie" up from me.

Now, I'm off to do the next step on my cabinet. After that, I really should pick up around here. Everything is a damn disaster, and not a beautiful disaster. Just a disaster, one big craptastic bunch of stuff laying all over.

I need a nap.
