Jamberry Nails: Tutorial and Review

I have a tutorial/review from Jamberry nails today. So let me tell you about these beauties before we get into details. They are like nail applications but not nail polish, they are more like vinyl and they apply with heat from a hair dryer and pressure. Below the video I've put useful links and the instructions from their website. Sorry the video is out of focus in parts, my camera would not play nice. These specific decals are called "Fireworks" and there's also a holo version! I'm going to wear test a different design for you in about a week and a half so I'll have that result but for now, this is strictly a how to apply and to get you familiar with Jamberry!  You can email Jenni Shirley who is an independent Jamberry consultant, and they retail for $15 which is great because, you cannot get nail art with a manicure for that price!

From Jamberry:
Jamberry Nail Shields are designed to be easily applied in a salon or at home.
Step 1: Clean nails with nail polish remover or alcohol. (Clean, oil free nails are one of the most important steps of the application)
Step 2: Cut and file nails to desired length and shape.
Step 3: Buff top of the nail and push back cuticle.
Step 4: Match nail (finger or toe) to the nail shield that best fits.
Step 5: Peel off nail shield and warm with a blow-dryer 10-15 seconds or until soft and flexible.
Step 6: When warm, press the shield onto the nail.  Apply firm pressure around edges to adhere the shield to the nail.  Use rubber cuticle pusher to seal the shield around the cuticle.
Step 7:  Trim the top with scissors and file off remaining shield using a downward motion to remove excess.
Step 8: Apply heat and pressure to the shield again until it is sealed to the nail. (Repeating this step several times helps create a tight seal to the nail surface and increases wear time)
Optional  Step 9: For active users you can add a small amount of nail glue to the free edge to better seal the nail shield. 
How to Remove:
Use hair dryer to heat for 15 seconds and slowly peel from the corner of your nail


  1. They look like fireworks! I LOVE them. I might have to try to freehand these. Great tutorial also!

  2. That pattern is great! It really does look like fireworks!
