Jamberry Nail Wraps

Have you girls every tried these Jamberry Nail Wraps? I’ve tried the Sally Hansen ones before and I really love them. They lasted on my nails for a long time. I actually had a hard time getting them off, that’s how good they were stuck on there.

Jen, at Jen’s Dress My Nails, is a Jamberry consultant and offered to send a sample sheet of the nail wraps to try them out. They’re so cute! I don’t wear nail wraps simply because I change my nails too often and they’re a bit pricey. The Jamberry wraps retail for $15 but you get a sheet with enough for two full uses.

Here’s what I came up with from my sample sheet:

ImageI decided to pair one of the wraps with Whimsical Ideas by Pam Peacock Park. Peacock Park is seriously one of my favorite polishes. Pam blew me away with that one.

The application process for these wraps was pretty simple as well. Here’s the application and removal instruction sheet from the website.

I did cheat on step 3. I didn’t use a blow dryer to warm my wrap up…. I just used my hot breath :). Hey, it worked! Jamberry also sells a little heater thing that you can use. I’m sure heater thing is not the technical term for it but you know what I mean.

ImageSo my over all consensus is that I would order these again. They have a ton of really cute designs to choose from and they’ve held up well between hand washing, diaper changing, kid bathing, dishes doing, you name it. Even from applying cuticle oil. You can check out Jen’s site here or contact your nearest Jamberry consultant to order :).

*I should add that Jen didn’t send me the sample to review on my blog, I chose to do that myself. These opinions are all my own.

Peacock Park

Happy Thursday everyone! The week is almost over with. I hope you’re all hanging in there ok :).  Today I have a gorgeous polish to show you. It’s from an Indie line called Whimsical Nail Polish by Pam. I’m IN LOVE with her polish.

I ordered a couple of her new polishes from her Eight Whimsical Nights 2012 Holiday Collection. They’re both beautiful. The polish I’m showing you today is Peacock Park. I’m a sucker for any polish that is “peacock” color lol. So when I saw this one, it was obvious I had to get it.

ImageNot only is the polish beautiful but look at that bottle. She hand ties all of the ribbons on the caps. Its such a sweet, personal touch to her bottles.

ImageHere’s a bottle shot of Peacock Park. It’s a light teal base with teal hexagon glitter and small round glitter. Gorgeous, right?

I’m wearing two coats of China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise as a base then layered two coats of Peacock Park over top. Topped off with a coat of HK Girl Fast Dry Top Coat. Another great thing about this polish is that it wasn’t topcoat thirsty. With just one layer of topcoat, my polish is still smooth. A lot of other glittery indies I’ve tried drink topcoat like it’s going out of style.

You can purchase Whimsical Nail Polish by Pam by heading over to her Facebook page. She offers full size bottles for $10 each and has a great collection. I do believe that she only ships within the US though, just a heads up for the international gals.
