My Jamberry Nail Shields have arrived!

I think I will be taking a break from nail art…. for two weeks that is if my new Jamberry Shields last as long as they say they will!

A Friend of mine’s, Sister is going to be selling the Jamberry Nail Shields and I recently went to a party at her house and bought two sets to try out. I got a Pink with a Silver Metallic design and a Peacock design.

A Little bit about the Company: The company was started by Three Sisters, Christy, Keri, and Lyndsey. The company officially launched October 1, 2010 and was originally formed as a direct to consumer model, however they grew so fast they decided to embark on a home party plan model; which was officially launched in the summer of 2011.

About the Nail Shields: Jamberry Nail Shields are unlike any other Nail Shields today. They are not Nail Laquer like most, so they do not chip, they do not have dry times. They are solid film covering that can be applied directly to the nail to achieve a look also unavailable anywhere else. The special material is both pressure and heat activated to create a water tight bond to your nail.

What I like most about the nail shields so far, is:

  • You do not need a base coat, they are heat activated to apply and to remove, you do not need Nail Polish Remover (although this method can be applied) so this will be better on your nails.
  • You don’t need a Top coat as they are finished with a high gloss protective layer that both prevents the shield from chipping and scuffing as well as making it shiny and appearing as though there is a top coat.
  • The nails are non-toxic and contain no harmful chemicals. They are latex, formaldehyde, as well as, gluten-free. They are never tested on Animals and made in the USA.
  • They are a reasonable price at just $15.00 a set $2.99 Shipping per order on the website. If you were to go to the salon it would cost this just for them to last barely a week.
  • They are said to be able to last on your nails for up to 2-3 weeks on hands and anywhere from 4-6 weeks on your toes.
  • Each sheet comes with enough shields to do 2-3 pedicures, or more if you have small nails 😀

Unfortunately, at this time they are only available for shipment to the US, and APO/AE addresses elsewhere. Doreen has been kind enough to look into what the shipping would be if she were to have the shields shipped to her home and then to you, should any of my International Bloggers be interested.

Jamberry Nail Shields

A Friend of mine’s sister is considering being a consultant for this company and is hosting a party at the end of the month that I will be attending.

From what I can gather so far from the website, it’s a company started by three sisters and their design on nail shields. They are $15 a set. (Each set will do 2-3 sets of fingers and toes). These nail shields are unique in application

Here are the application instructions below:

Jamberry Nail Shields are designed to be easily applied in a salon or at home.

Step 1: Clean nails with nail polish remover or alcohol. (Clean, oil free nails are one of the most important steps of the application)

Step 2: Cut and file nails to desired length and shape.

Step 3: Buff top of the nail and push back cuticle.

Step 4: Match nail (finger or toe) to the nail shield that best fits.

Step 5: Peel off nail shield and warm with a blow-dryer 10-15 seconds or until soft and flexible.

Step 6: When warm, press the shield onto the nail.  Apply firm pressure around edges to adhere the shield to the nail.  Use rubber cuticle pusher to seal the shield around the cuticle.

Step 7:  Trim the top with scissors and file off remaining shield using a downward motion to remove excess.

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)

Optional  Step 9: For active users you can add a small amount of nail glue to the free edge to better seal the nail shield.

How to Remove: Use hair dryer to heat for 15 seconds and slowly peel from the corner of your nail

I kind of feel like this is a lot of steps for a Nail Decal, however they say these are designed to last a lot longer, and from some of the reviews I have read on other sites, they do seem to hold up and are simple to apply. People are raving over them!

They have a lot of different designs, see for yourself here.

Tell me what you think, does this seem like a lot of steps, would you try them, have you already and what did you think?

Come back in a few weeks for a full review when I go to the party to test them out!! 🙂
