Jamberry Application – NOTD 43

Here is the second of third part of my Jamberry stuffs 😀 I did just an overview of the Company and shields, here is the application, and lastly I will review in the weeks to come.

I applied the pink shields with the metallic silver design, first I will show you some tips and instructions and then the final look that is said to last 2-3 weeks 🙂

What you will need: alcohol, paper towel for alcohol, nail buffer, nail file, cuticle pusher, hair dryer, jamberry shields, sandwich baggie, and the included instructions. 

Step 1. Clean nails with alcohol. This step is to remove the oils from your nails, it will ensure the best seal. 

Step 2: clean and push back cuticles and buff any ridges out of clean nails.

Step 3:  match and size finger or toe to the nail shield that best fits. 

Step 4: Cut The nail shield to size. Be sure not to touch the “sticky” side too much as to minimize dirts and oils from your fingers to the stick side.

Step 5: There are two ways of doing this next step; you can either heat the shield first for 10-15 seconds ( or until soft and flexible ) or you can place it in the spot on your nail you want it, then heat. *Also if your blow dryer is as hot as mine, you can hold it out farther for a little longer time.  

Step 6: Either heating method you choose, once heated and applied to nail, firmly put pressure around edges to adhere the shield to the nail.  Use cuticle pusher to seal the shield around the cuticle. If necessary repeat step once or twice.

Step 7: After the first heating application, trim the tip with scissors and file off remaining shield using a downward motion to remove the excess piece.

Step 8: Apply heat and pressure to the shield again until it is sealed to the nail. (Repeating this step several times helps create a tight seal to the nail surface and increases wear time).

* There is also a tip with a sandwich baggie. You can take a sandwich baggie and apply it tightly around your nail so that there are no seams or air and apply heat again. The way the nail shields are applied and how they work is with heat and pressure, the sandwich baggie adds that extra seal.

This process took me about 45 minutes. I did not need a top coat and as you read from above you don’t use a base coat, so there is no drying time. In between nails you can be doing things, once it’s sealed, its sealed. It took me a little longer than it probably should as I was really taking my time and this was my first application. After doing some reading I saw similar comments and how it will take less time as you get used to application.

They say that the shields can last 2-3 weeks on hands depending on your nail growth. I honestly don’t know if I will get bored with them before that time is up as I get bored easily,we shall see 🙂

Here are what my nail shields looked like after application. Today is Sunday and I applied them Thursday, so far so good, Stay tuned for the Review 😀

    • Thanks, its really not, it looks like a lot because of the detailed steps, but honestly, once you do one you start to get the hang of it and remember the steps. From there its more of a guestinating game, you know an can tell once its sealed and was hot enough

  3. These look awesome! I have used the Sally Hansen Salon Effects and it seems that these may be similar. Have you tried those and if so, which one do you recommend? I know these probably take longer than the Salon Effects but if it lasts longer, I am more than willing to give them a shot!
