New Twist on Nails
About a week ago, I was scanning my
Facebook feed, when I saw a contest for Jamberry. Jamberry is a company that produces nail wraps, and I've been wanting to try them for a long time.
I entered, and with the help of The Bestie, I won (and so did she!) a half sheet of Jamberry nail wraps. The gal we won from has no idea I'm writing this post, but I may send her the link in case she's interested in my opinion, haha!
They arrived in the mail a few days ago (I didn't get to choose the design), and today, I decided to give them a go.
Here's my old polish.
That I did myself.
Because who has $40 to plop down on a pedicure?
But, y'all, as soon as The Husband gets a new job, I'm treating myself to one, because I HATE messing with feet. Especially mine. They're not attractive feet, so I apologize ahead of time for all of the foot photos you're about to see. Ugh. Please look beyond the foot to the pretty wraps instead. Thank you.
I went to my parents' house and borrowed all the necessary supplies from my mom (cuticle pusher, file, cuticle scissors) that I didn't have on hand.
While I was there, I removed my old polish.
Here's the half sheet. It doesn't look like a lot, but I guess I have small nail beds because it was PLENTY.
This foot took me about 25 minutes, mostly because of the cutting/trimming to get the wraps the right size and because I was learning as I went.
Voila! Here they are, approximately 40 minutes after I began.
They say these wraps should last a lot longer than a pedicure with polish. I guess we'll see because I am hard on my toenails. I go barefoot or wear flip-flops much of the day, and I have small children who like to stomp/step/stand on my feet often.
I know the picture is blurry, but I think they look pretty. Have you tried them? What was your experience like? How long did they actually last?
