Jamberry Nails Sample Review

Jamberry Nails offers all kinds of nail wrap styles for just about anyone. I was recently contacted by someone who sells their products asking if I'd like to review them, and seeing as nail wraps seem to be the hot nail trend lately, I said sure! I received a sample from Ann Blunt, and you can visit her store here.

Normally their nail wraps come on a big sheet, with a bunch of different sizes to choose from, so you can do all your nails and toes with one sheet. But the sample sheet had just a few sizes to choose from, and 5 different patterns. Jamberry Nails sells tons of different patterns, so there's something for just about everyone. Most are $15 for a sheet that can be used a few times depending on what size your nails are, how many nail wraps you're using at a time, and other factors.



Here is the sample sheet, most of these were too small for my nails, I have wide nail beds, but a couple were the right size. There was a bonus design that I used below as an accent nail.


I just did one of the nail wraps as an accent nail with Julep Harlow and Ruffian Endless Love polishes. There are instructions on how to apply these wraps, but basically you heat them up with a blow dryer, apply to a clean nail, heat again to make them stick, and file or cut off the excess wrap that hangs over the edge of your nail.

I found that the wrap started to peel away from the corners of my nail the very next day after I applied them. Showered, and they were already beginning to peel. They stayed in place otherwise for a few days, until my polish began chipping a little, and then I finally peeled off the wraps. You're supposed to heat the wraps up again to remove, but I found that the glue holding them on wasn't very strong, and I was able to just peel them off very easily.

I liked the look of the wraps, but it still took the same amount of time to paint my nails because I was only using them as an accent nail. It might have taken less time if I was using them on all my nails, but I didn't like the feel of them once they started peeling. I don't know if I could handle having them on all my nails and the feeling of them peeling on the corners. And for $15 a sheet, that only gets you a few manicures, it's more expensive than polish, and I didn't find that it lasted as long. And at least if your polish is chipping, you can always touch it up. If these start peeling, you have to replace with another wrap. The designs are fun though, and as accent nails you could get a lot of use out of one sheet. I don't think I would personally buy these, just not worth it for me.

If you'd like to try a sample of Jamberry Nails, you can get in contact with your local Jamberry Nails sales representative, or contact Ann Blunt who is the person who contacted me! Jamberry Nails also just introduced their monthly subscription box for $25/month, and it includes:

  1. Hmm! I've never tried Jamberry wraps before, but I got some as a gift from a friend. You're making me want to pull them out and give them a try. I didn't know they had a subscription box, that's interesting to know!

    1. I think using them as an accent nail is great, then you get some fun mixed in with the polish, and you can compare how you like them. And yeah, the subscription box is new!
