The Truth About Jamberry Nail Shields

Do Jamberry Nail Shields Really Work?
Maybe it was the way I was raised, but for some reason, fashion is just not my thing.  I generally dress in neutral colors and wear little to no makeup.  I am was a severe nail biter for as long as I can remember.  My hands always looked 'stubby' and non-girly to me.  When I was able to afford acrylic nails, they looked so much better, but I didn't have the time or money to keep that up on a consistent basis.  When it was time to remove the acrylic, it was like trying to give birth out my cuticles (sorry for that image).  

In walks my friend, Heather!  She had on these AMAZING nails!! They were so cute and colorful.  I figured they'd be expensive and would never work on my short, stubby nails. I went to a Jamberry Nails party and was pretty skeptical.  I knew nothing about them other than they were so stylish and colorful.  Would they work on little miss nail-biter?  The short answer?  YES!

I have very thin and bendy nails when they do grow out.  Acrylic nails would always pull away from the sides of my flexible nails.  My nail would also pull away from the underside of the acrylic causing me to pick at my nails (I'm nervous remember).  Nail polish?  Forget about it!  If I ever could stay still enough to actually have them dry without smearing (I have three kids and that's pretty much impossible), they'd peel or chip away in about a day.  Needless to say, my Jamberry set has been on for a week and is still going strong.  

From this....... theeeeese!!
Jamberry nails are made of a non-toxic material that is flexible with your nail and requires NO DRYING TIME.  Put them on and go!  All you need to activate them is a hair dryer.  That's right.  A hair dryer.  See the clip below for the actual application instructions.  

Can't wait for you to try these! You won't be disappointed!
