Disclaimer: I received a set of Jamberry Nail Wraps for free to review. I was not compensated any other way. The opinions expressed are my own.
I love going to the nail salon and getting my nails done. I always have two problems though.
- If I go for a manicure, it lasts about 2 days before it chips and starts peeling.
- If I get acrylic nails, my nails break and are so weak after the 2 weeks.
Do you have these same problems? Jamberry Nails are so different than what is currently offered for nails. They are not the plastic press ons from back in the day, they are nail wraps. They wrap on your nail. Since you are not putting chemicals on your nails, they stay strong and healthy. Also, since it’s not nail polish, it does not chip.
Candace from Jamberry Nails sat down with me and shared with me the best tips for achieving a great Jamberry look! I received the set of wraps, a couple samples, and the Jamberry Mini Heater. The book is filled with so many possible designs, and just in case you can’t find your perfect design you can upload your own pics and design your own!

The nails were a little tricky to get on the first time, matching them up to my nail and trimming all the edges. I definitely recommend you buy the application kit as all the tools will make the job so much better. Even though my nails aren’t perfect as you see in the pics, I LOVE them!!! I am sure practice makes perfect.
How to Get the Perfect Jamberry Nail Wrap Manicure
- Remove any nail polish with nail polish remover. Wash hands thoroughly. Wipe nails with Jamberry’s Nail Prep Cleanser or alcohol wipes. Oily residue on your fingers can affect the adhesive layer and the nail wraps won’t attach properly.
- Push back nail cuticles with an orange stick.
- After matching your nail to the nail wrap that best fits, cut it in half and use the other half for your second hand – same nail.
- Use the orange stick to lift the nail wrap from the sheet.
- The wraps are heat activated. So make sure you warm them up for 3-5 seconds with a hairdryer or Jamberry mini dryer first. This step is absolutely essential.
- Like any manicure, rushing isn’t the best approach. Take your time, focus when applying the wraps and smoothing them out around the edges. Use your fingers to smooth out any bubbles. If it doesn’t attach well the first time, re-do it. This is essential, if not attached properly they may not last as long as intended.
- Cut off the excess with nail clippers.
- Use a glass file or soft buffer to file off any excess using a downward motion in one direction. No backward/forward movements and no harsh metallic files, they can tear the wrap edges.
- Using the mini heater lightly heat your wrapped finger to seal to the nail.
Jamberry Nail Wraps – How Long Do they Last?
I have done all my daily routines and the nails still look like I just put them on. I have washed dishes (scrubbed pans), cooked, crafted, and blogged and my nails are not chipped or coming off. Jamberry Nail wraps typically last up to 2 weeks on fingers and up to 6 weeks on toes. I also noticed the nail wraps have prevented me from picking at/chewing my nails.
Jamberry Nails – Money Savings Tips
- Instead of using the whole set of nail wraps, use just one as an accent nail.
- Apply a clear coat of nail polish to the top of the nail wraps and touch up as needed.
- Store your nail wraps in a Dollar Tree photo album book.
- Jamberry is great for nail wraps, but some of their tools and products are quite pricey. You can find the tools (except for the Mini-Heater) at the Dollar Tree or on Amazon.
The cost is perfect too! Just $15!! That is about the same for a manicure and less than a full set and they are definitely worth their value.
