NOTD 171 – I wanna see your Peacock

In my last post I said that my sister was coming in on Monday but I lied… BUT I had to! Just in case my mom saw my blog Friday…. So we (my sister and I) told my mom that my sister was coming to visit on Monday, yesterday and staying all week, when in reality we were surprising her Friday. I asked my mom to go to dinner the four of us (my mom, her husband Bill, Don, and I) So my sister came to my house first and followed us to dinner. The four of us sat down and then my sister came in a few minutes after us. Now the place we went to, we have been going to for years so the woman knows Marissa. Donna, the waitress pulls up a table and an extra chair and is like “oh is she joining you” and the three of us (cuz Bill was in on it too) were all like ohh whoo 🙂 and my mom freaked, it was too awesome!! So my sister is here now until Saturday she drives back Saturday morning and I get to spend time with her and Thomas ❤

I did my nails on Saturday night and now I can’t get Katy Perry’s Peacock song out of my head… song not suitable for young children… LOL

For this look I painted my thumb and my middle finger using Revlon – Ocean, and the other three using Avon Cosmic. I stamped Ocean overtop using my peacock stamp and hand painted in the blues (Essie – Bikini so Teeny and Essie’s – Aruba Blue) in the feather and touched up the stem of the feather using Milani glitter nail art. Here is my final look

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. See contact info below 😀
