I love the fun of holiday beauty prep. Yesterday I went and got my eyebrows done- I’ve got an amazing eyebrow girl who waxes, trims, and colors my brows. I’ve got cute holiday outfits ready for the family gatherings.
But there was one more thing. My nails.
Now, I’m a chronic nail-biter. In fact, in recent years, my nailbeds have gotten shorter because of my biting. I know it’s a bad habit, but I’m afraid the damage is done (pretty much) and my hands are hopeless. However, I know while the family is hanging out, I will be chilling with no shoes on- so my toes were in need of some beautificiation.
Enter Jamberry. Jamberry are do-it-yourself nail wraps that are cute and practical. For a fraction of the cost of a pedicure, I can get a long lasting couture look.
I heard about Jamberry through Tyler’s cousin, Lindsay. She is always posting the cutest designs. I gave Jamberry a try on my toenails.
To be honest, I have trouble painting my toes myself, so anything that didn’t require paint was good for me. And my toes chip easily because of Zumba and wearing boots…so I was excited to try something long lasting.
Y’all. I’m in LOVE.
I used the nail prep kit to get my nails ready. It comes with everything you need to apply your Jams – cuticle pusher, a rubber cuticle pusher to apply them, a buffer and file to remove excess, and the perfect cuticle scissors to cut your wraps down.
I learned from Lindsay that ionic hairdryers are not good for heating your wraps, so I also used their handy heater. It made ALL the difference. It was easy to use hands-free to heat the wraps, and it didn’t get too hot to keep my toes in front of it.
I am SO pleased with the results. I used a mint sparkle for the main nails, and a tan Aztec accent nail.
They have stayed on great despite wearing boots and Zumba shoes.
I loved that there was no drying time- I did my nails one morning and then got in the shower with no worry of smudging or messing them up. And everything fit back into the nail prep kit bag- including the Jams and the dryer. I can just stash it in the drawer until I need to change them.
I’m sharing this with you because Lindsay told me they are going to be having BIG Black Friday sales- and I wanted you to know! They have adorable holiday and winter designs- who wouldn’t want plaid nails? Or some fun sparkles for New Years Eve? They are awesome- and you won’t want to miss the sale.
Check out Lindsay’s store online and order you some Jams! They were easy to apply, looked great, and last long. You’ll love them!
If you place an order- she will send you a mini application kit and a sheet of accent nails with your order! Just select Brittney Lee’s Blog as your party to take advantage of that!
Have a great Thanksgiving, friends! Be beautiful! 🙂
