Jamberry Removal

Well… Just as I suspected… I couldn’t leave the Jamberry strips on my nails for very long, or at least not as long as they say they are supposed to last. They are said to be able to stay on for roughly 2 weeks on your hands depending on your nail growth. I kept the Jamberry’s on my nails for 6 whole days! I know to some of you that may not sound like long, but they were starting to drive me crazy with boredom. It has nothing to do with the shields themselves, polish drives me to boredom too.

I do however in the meantime for you have a picture of my friend Gina’s toes. She did these on her toes the day that she got them and has had them on for 2 weeks, 4 days and counting. This picture was taken yesterday, and as you can see, even after 2 weeks and 4 days, they are still looking brand new. She loves them!


I pulled the below Removal process right from the Jamberry website

Quick Removal Process:Heat the shields with a blow dryer for 15 seconds. Then break the seal by getting under the edge of the shield with your opposite thumb nail. Slowly peel the shield from side to side. If the Nail Shields are not peeling easily or the adhesive is still bonded to the nail bed then follow the Gentle Removal Process.

Gentle Removal Process: Soak the Nail Shields in nail polish remover for 20-30 seconds and gently rub them off. Soaking will break down the adhesive bond and allow them to easily slide of the nail bed.

Overall in the 6 days that I wore these, I had no lifting, no scuffing, no peeling or cracking. All in all, I think the idea of this product, the way that it works, the way that it’s made, and the designs are just simply fabulous. They are just not made for MY hands. I will do them on my toes shortly as I tend to keep polish on them no problem for easily 2-3 weeks, until I need to do another Pedicure.

If you are Interested in purchasing a set or two of these, please see my Jamberry Shield Post here and here, for prices and shipping info. Once again here is Doreen’s contact info:

  1. Too bad they drove you banana’s but six days with the same polish is long for me as well. But that’s usually because it will chip within two days on my hands:)
    For toes, these would probably last me forever!:)


  2. I definitely think that anything like this product is not meant for people like us who change our polish so often. However, I totally agree that it’s a great idea for pedicures. I would totally use these since I do my toes every 2 weeks.
