November has been lovingly known as Movember for a few years now, thanks to the "No-Shave November" trend. (Is it a trend? a lifestyle? a challenge? I honestly don't know at this point.) So I decided to do a quick and easy Jamberry manicure to celebrate!
I mixed things up because I have a TON of sample sheets of different wraps - my Jamberry representative loves sending out samples to her customers! So I had a lot of fun with the accent nails.
Sadly, most of the wraps in this mani have been discontinued - Almond Ombre, which is on my left pinky finger, the mustache French tips, which are adorably called Uno Momo, and the plaid on my right pinky have all been discontinued. The flowery wrap on my left middle finger is called Flapper and it's still around in Jamberry's shop, woohoo! The animal print on my left pinky is Hear Me Roar.
A lot of people around the internet dislike Jamberry, for a variety of
reasons. The biggest one is that they're a lot harder to apply than
the company makes it look - and that's definitely true. I still need
some practice - you can see the wrinkles on some of my nails. But my
favorite thing about Jamberry is that once I've finished applying them,
I'm done. This manicure may have taken me 45 minutes, but when I
was done, I was able to whip up dinner immediately without having to
worry about smudging, chipping, or denting my nails. And honestly, 45
minutes for this many nail art designs is nothing! (At least the way I
paint my nails, ha.) For a solid color nail, I definitely prefer
polish, but I really like using Jamberry for nail art.
Have you ever tried Jamberry, or any other of the different kinds of nail wraps out there? What did you think of them? Let me know in the comments!
