After recently playing with Nailed Kit’s water slide nail art decals and Essie’s nail appliques, my love for vinyl nail stickers has definitely grown. So when Jill, a Jamberry Nails Independent Consultant, sent me over a sample of their nail wraps I got psyched and they didn’t disappoint.
Initially I was impressed with Jamberry Nails intricate and varied designs. I received six decals and chose to try them on as an accent.
The application process called for a unique step after a routine nail cleaning and cuticle push. The nail wrap requires heat to soften the adhesive before you stick it on. I pointed my blow dryer on the wrap and used it on a low heat setting for about 5 seconds. It worked.
I placed the wrap on my ring finger while it was still warm. I found it best to make sure the placement fit before pressing on the wrap to seal it on because the glue got pretty sticky. I used a rubber cuticle pusher to flatten out any bubbles that formed.
I folded the leftover sticker and filed it off in a downward motion to get the right fit. While the included directions do not mention to seal the sticker with a top coat, I recommend applying a layer of it if you intend on wearing the wraps for a few days.
This is a sample of Reminisce ($15). I paired it with Marc Jacobs’ 128 Nirvana ($18).
This is Poised Plaid ($15). I paired it with Essie’s Blanc ($8.50).
This is Wisteria ($15). I paired it with Marc Jacobs’ 122 Ultraviolet ($18).
