I was sent a collection of nail wrap samples from a company called Jamberry to try. I have never tried anything like this before. I can spend hours on my makeup but when it comes to my nails I am quite lazy. I like a quick polish and that’s about it.
I was challenged to try the wraps on a nail on each hand and paint the others with a nail polish. I then tracked the nails over the 7 days to see which lasted the best. So the challenge began…
The Jamberry Nail Wraps are thin vinyl sheets of decorated patterns. Using pressure and heat they stick to your nail for a long-lasting finish.
- Easy to apply at-home
- Requires ZERO dry time
- Durable for long-lasting wear without chipping, peeling or fading
- Lasts up to 2 weeks
Jamberry claim, “they are made with durable materials, so smudges and streaks are never an issue, and can last for up to two weeks on fingernails and four weeks on toes.”
I watched a video on the Facebook page showing me how to apply the wraps first. I then followed the instructions. Firstly, I cleaned my nails with a wipe they had supplied. I then chose a sticker. This was a bit tricky as I have got wide nails and a lot of the samples were too thin for my nails. I peeled off the backing paper using tweezers and heated the wrap up for a few seconds with my hair dryer. I then applied it to my nail. I used a brown stick to smooth down the sides. Next, I used scissors and a nail file to carefully remove the excess sticker from the edge. I finished by applying more heat from my hair dryer to the nail wrap to set it. I then applied two coats of a Rimmel 60 second dry nail polish to my other nails.
I found the application quite tricky. I am not great with nails and had not tried anything like this before. I actually ended up with a few ridges around the sides where I hadn’t smoothed them out properly and because I had applied the heat, the wraps were set and I couldn’t do anything about them. I am sure other people would be able to apply them fine, they are not hard to do, I just needed to spend a bit more time smoothing them out before I set them.
I monitored the nails for 7 days, comparing the wrap to the nail polish. After 5 days, the nail polish had started to chip at the edges, which I expected. The wraps however, stayed looking great for the whole 7 days. I took them off as I was having a manicure, but I am pretty sure they would have lasted at least another week.
The Jamberry Nail Wraps are great, when applied well. They look really good and there is a huge variety of stickers to choose from. They cost £15.00 for a set of three which isn’t too bad. They last well and continue to look good. I think they are good for special occasions or holidays where you want to rely on your nails lasting.
