Jamberry: Tangerine Ikat

I'm excited to show you my first Jamberry today. I've tried some cheaper nail stickers which were mostly disastrous so I didn't have really high hopes, but I was very pleasantly surprised. A fellow polish addict and Jamberry consultant Shea sent me a sample sheet and I've finally had the time to try it out. The Jamberry shields aren't just stickers and are supposed to last up to two weeks on fingers. I haven't had mine on long yet, but it's holding strong a day later even through a shower and some dish washing.

To apply I followed the directions on the Jamberry Website. It was easier than I had anticipated to get it on and smooth out all the bumps. I warmed it with my blow dryer for a few seconds as suggested and stuck it in place. It just needed a tiny bit of trimming around the cuticles, but otherwise fit perfectly. I did wrap the tip with some clear top coat "just in case" but I'm sure it would have been fine without. I used Finger Paints, Don't Make A Scene for the other nails. It's a perfect match to the background on the ikat shield. If you're interested in trying Jamberry check out Shea's Jamberry site. They have tons of cool patterns that would be hard to replicate with polish alone plus some nice basics if you're looking for a longer lasting alternative. With no drying time and pretty much painless application these have some real potential. 

And of course I can't help myself. Every time I hear Jamberry I think of this video:
