Ain’t no party like a Jamberry party…
…cause a Jamberry party won’t stop!
My “non-chickness” is pretty epic. Remember the time I cut off all my hair because it was taking me six minutes to do my hair in the morning? And how I am the least sympathetic person whenever Troy is sick? My constant references to his “mangina” are not appreciated by him. But ohhhhh so satisfying (and accurate).
So, when my friend Tara asked if I’d try some Jamberry nails, I said “um, meh”.
I have lots of friends and coworkers who love Jamberry, but honestly I never really “got them”, and them seemed complicated and not something I was interested in. For those of you who may not know, Jamberry are really colorful and fun nail wraps that are like putting stickers on your nails, but look professionally done.
She persisted, and I thought I’d be nice and give them a try. I looked at all the options online, and settled for something I deemed “tasteful, not-obvious, and would hide garden dirt”. I eventually settled on pink stripes, and then went about reading the directions. I balked when I saw that you needed a cuticle pusher thingy. I had to go out and buy one. Go me.
But honestly, I watched the video online, and then did the nails and it was really simple. Even I could figure it out…once I bought a cuticle thingy.
Here is how my nails always look
Here is what they looked like with Jamberry
Here is what they looked like three weeks to the day after I put them on (I hate how fast my stupid nails grow, because I like to keep them SHORT)
I have to tell you, for someone who never does their nails, it was so fun having nice ones for a change. The reaction I got to them were hilarious as well; Jack screamed “nice nails Mommy” and kept hugging me for the first two days I had them on. Troy said they were like Willy Wonka nails and reminded him of a candy store. The guy at the Honda dealership (I was having service done) kept saying “your nails are tripping me out. They’re awesome”.
These nails survived:
- 3 chicken coop clean outs
- 10+ hours of gardening
- 13 hours of applesauce making and canning
- 7 hours of quilting
- an ungodly number of hours of dishes, laundry, and bathroom cleaning
- 21 days of child bathing
- 14 days of work and constant typing
One of the coolest thing about the nails is that each package has enough to do your nails multiple times. Try getting a professional manicure to last weeks for only $15!
So, here are the details if you’d like some for your very own!
