So I am a total nail polish junkie, I have over 100 bottles but sometimes I just want something different like a cute design or something for the holidays. Nail art can be so hard plus time consuming so I gave Jamberry Nails a try. Keep reading to see how these compare to regular nail polish.
What are Jamberry Nails?
“The wraps are a solid film covering that can be applied directly to the nail to achieve a look not found anywhere else. This special material is both pressure and heat activated to create a water tight bond to your nail. They are made in the USA with no harsh chemicals and are latex free. This new nail treatment can be applied in about 15 minutes at home with over 300 designs to choose from, these designer wraps are made to last 2 weeks on the fingers and 4 or more on the toes. Unlike tradition nail polish they won’t chip and require no drying time.”
Jamberry Nails Vs. Nail Polish
After 7 Days:
After 7 days my Jamberry Nails were starting to peel up on the edges but for the most part they still looked pretty good. I was actually informed that I probably picked some wraps that were too big for my nail beds causing them not to last as long, that was totally a human error on my part. If you buy some of these definitely make sure you pick a size that is a tad bit smaller than your nail bed.
If I wasn’t so anal I would have been able to keep them on longer, but with the ends peeling up it just made me want to pick at them and take them off. However, I just learned you can file off any part of the wrap that starts to peel up.
The regular nail polish I used from Revlon started chipping a couple days before the 7 day mark. Which honestly, I was a little bit disappointed by. This was my first time using this Revlon Gel Envy polish (since I just finished up a no buying nail polish challenge) and I was hoping it would be a super long lasting drugstore alternative for gel nails. It wasn’t. :/
So the Jamberry Nails win for longevity!!
Overall I think these are really great, especially if you want nail art, but don’t have the time or patience to do it yourself. Jamberry literally has hundreds of designs and colors to choose from. But it’s not just designs, there are many solids, as well as really nice work or wedding appropriate wraps. I promise you there is something for EVERYONE, even your kids! :)
I was sent these nail wraps to try by Megan, so if you are interested in getting some for you, or for a great stocking stuffer please check out her website http://megangrier.jamberrynails.net/ or like her Jamberry site on Facebook.
