Jamberry Nails – Neptune

I'm gonna be real honest about something. It's something that's actually kept me from doing reviews like this in the past. Well, no, not reviews. It's kept me from doing pictures like this before.

Because... I have horrible nails.

This is partly my fault, because I always forget to use the nail oils that I have that I know work, and partly because I'm just really hard on my nails. But as a result, I tend to keep them short and leave them be.

But when I got these Jamberry Nail wraps in the mail, I just couldn't say no. They were so pretty. So cute. So lovely. And so I grew my nails out just for this picture.​

Actually I meant to take a lot more pictures than that, but I chickened out. Oh well. 

Bask in the glory of my beautified nails.

As a quick note, Jamberry Nails is not a 100% gluten free company.

They also sell nail care and nail polish and these products are not gluten free. However, all of the 200+ nail wrap designs are totally safe.

So how did I like it?

After staring at the rows upon rows of stunning patterns on the website, I only had two concerns:

  1. Application Process
  2. Length of time it stays good

1. Process

My #1 concern with a nail wrap was pretty basic: Application process. Would it be easy to use for everything-nail-challenged me? Well. Take a look at that photo again and you tell me. See how smooth they are? First time to ever apply a nail wrap and that's what I got. Pretty sweet, huh?

A few days later I rapidly saw where skill could have improved the application, because it began to crease at the tips a little. It was barely noticable, but I wondered if it would have a bearing on how long they lasted.​

Which brings me to...​

2. Lasting Power​

The wraps are said to last two weeks on fingernails. I thought 'Aw sure, if you're good at it. Bet it won't last that long for me.'

Well. It did. It lasted a full two weeks! As the wraps wore on, the tips began to fray and want to peel, but it wasn't until right about the two week mark I finally decided it was the end of their lifetime. ​Only afterwards did I realize that "moment" was exactly two weeks after I first applied them.

All in all, I love these nail wraps! They are gorgeous, easy to apply and loads of fun! ​

At $15 a set with enough wraps for two applications, they're an inexpensive manicure you can do at home that just so happen to be totally adorable.

    I love Jamberry! I found out recently that I have a gluten allergy, and have continued to get more and more sensitive to it. I love that Jamberry is gluten free and safe to use. I was instantly addicted to them and decided that I love them so much I’d join as a consultant! I love bragging on them!!!

    • They really are a lot of fun! It would be cool if eventually they reformulated their nail care to be gluten free too, but for now I’m really happy with those fabulous wraps!

  • Oh my goodness! You made such a great review! I just started selling Jamberry and would like to know if I could refer people to your review? Sometimes it is hard to put into words how I feel about them, but you did it so well! Thanks if that would be ok! You rock, so glad you found Jamberry! They are so much fun =)

    • Thank you Charity! I would be happy if you sent people to my review! I really like Jamberry and you’re right, they are SO fun. 🙂 So many colors, so many patterns, such a pretty finish, and just all around awesome. Hope you sell lots and lots of wraps!
