Okay, so I've seen these Jamberry Nail Shields everywhere and have been kind of wanting to try them out, but never got around to doing so. Not too long ago, a consultant contacted me asking if I'd like to try out and review them and of course I obliged. Why not?
So here's what I came up with. I used butter LONDON Pillar Box Red as a base, the Jamberry Nail Shield is obviously what's on my pointer finger, and I used some silver "glequins", as Sam at The Nailasaurus likes to call them, from the Born Pretty Store. I liked the overall look of this manicure, but not so much the nail shield itself. :o
First of all, the shield that they gave me didn't fit ANY of my nails. You can't really tell in this photo, but it's entirely too small for the nail. It was like this for all of my nails, excluding my pinky, in which case it was much too large. >.< If I were to purchase a full sheet, I'm sure that would include enough sizes so that all of my nails would be properly covered, but the one they sent me just wasn't cutting it and it didn't have much of a stretch to it, either.
You can also see where it tore a bit at the tip of my nail. This could be all thanks to "user error", but I thought it was really difficult to file/cut off at the end. Then it almost immediately started lifting after I was finished with the whole thing, which subsequently made me peel it off just a couple hours later.
I may or may not purchase a sheet and give it another try here soon. They have a ton of really pretty and neat designs to choose from on their website for $15. If I attempt them again, I'll be sure to report back! :tup
What do you ladies think about this look?
Have you ever tried Jamberry Nails and if so, how was your experience?
Thanks for reading, loves!
