Jamberry Nails Review & Giveaway

by Lisa Heath

Have you ever tried Jamberry Nails?  I’ve been hearing about them for years and finally gave it a shot.  I’ve only applied nail wraps/appliques once or twice before this (the last time was well over a year ago) so execution on my part was a little rough, but still not horrible.  I’m going to try again when I get a chance to see if I can get better at it.  I see lots of cute designs that I would love to try!

First things first – the independent consultant who provided the review items as well as the giveaway items was really awesome to work with!  My main concern was that I didn’t have a heat source (such as a blow dryer… and that’s right – I don’t own a blow dryer) and she let me know that Jamberry does have small heaters you can purchase if you don’t have a blow dryer or similar source.

Heat source

This is the heat source I received.  It actually looks like a mini room heater and works like one.  It plugs in and the red switch in front turns it on and off, pretty straight forward!


These are the Jamberry Nails I decided on – Raspberry Sparkle.

Step by Step on Application

To get started, I made sure my nails were cleaned and prepped for best results.  You can apply the Jamberry Nails Wraps over polish, just make sure you apply a fresh coat of polish first.

Next, go through the wraps and match up the best width with each nail.  I only found that my pinkie didn’t really have a match.  The smallest wraps were too small, and the next largest were just a touch too wide.  The rest of the nails found their matches pretty quickly and easily.

I peeled off the nail wraps one at a time, used the mini heater to heat up the adhesive side of the wraps for about 6 seconds each so they were flexible.

While still warm, I pressed the wraps onto the desired nail and applied pressure all around to  get the wrap to adhere to the nails all around.  Once on, I used small cuticle scissors and cut the wraps down and then filed off the rest if the excess wrap with a file.  I assume a metal file would work best, but all I had are emery boards and glass files.  It took a bit to get the excess of with these files I have.  I only say a metal file would work better because I remember using one the last time I did wraps and it seemed easier.

After they are the desired length, apply heat again and press down on the wrap to make sure it’s on the nail good.

My results

Jamberry Applied

Overall they went on good… and the tip area actually looked really good until it came to filing excess off.  So I will say the ripples on top were user error.  I didn’t have a proper file to finish the job basically.  Those ripples were NOT there when I started filing down.

Aside from the ripples though, these stayed on my nails pretty well.  I tested them for 4 days (did you notice I had an over abundance of makeup, skin care, etc type posts the last several days?) this is why.  While my application job was rough, those babies were on there to stay.  When I was ready to remove, I soaked my nails for about 40 seconds in polish remover and gently rubbed them off.  My nails under were still in good condition and there was no nail wrap residue left behind.  Pretty fast and simple!

Price: $15.00 per sheet (each sheet has 3-4 applications)
