Jamberry + Tiffany & Co. – A Few of My Favorite Things


Jamberry has come out with a couple of wraps lately that are that Tiffany blue and I am ALL.ABOUT.IT.  So much so that I made a little trip to Tiffany’s and made a little purchase!

Top 3 Ways You are Ruining Your Manicure

#1: You are Not Thoroughly Washing and Drying Your Hands.

Your nails have natural oils that can keep your polish from adhering properly. Seriously.  I had never even heard of oily nail beds before I joined Jamberry but since then I have learned that this is the number one reason that most people only get day from their manicure – whether using wraps or lacquers.  So if you are one of those people, let’s take a closer look at your nail prep.  After you wash and dry your hands, do a quick wipe with the Jamberry Nail Prep.  Make sure you leave a proper time for the nail bed to completely dry.  Any moisture causes the nail bed to expand which can impact the longevity of your manicure.  Jamberry product for this step:

#2: You are Filing Your Nails in Different Directions

If you use your file in a sawing motion, you are doing it wrong.  Sawing your nails makes them weaker and they will be more susceptible to peeling and breaking.  To get the shape you want, gently file your nail in one direction.  Work from the outside in on one side and then the other. Since your nails are thinner on the side you want to work toward the middle.  Another tip is to hold your file at a 45 degree angle, tilting it so you file from underneath your nail.  This allows you to see what you’re doing and can actually prevent you from “over” filing your nail.  Jamberry product for this step:

#3: Ignoring Your Cuticles

You need to hydrate your cuticles (with cuticle oils and creams) but you also need to safely remove excess cuticles (with cuticle removers).  These two steps are not one and the same.  Nor are they interchangeable.   First and foremost, the best thing you can do for yourself is drink lots and lots of water.  Contrary to popular belief, cuticle oils and cuticle removers are not one and the same—nor can they be used interchangeably. Oils help moisturize, while removers act like an exfoliating treatment for your nail beds.  Start by massaging a cuticle remover like Jamberry’s Cuticle Remover Pen that is perfect for  your handbag or travel.  This helps remove the cuticle from the nail, but it also gets rid of dead skin in a safe and effective manner.   Apply a cuticle oil after completing your manicure to add hydration – and then use once or twice a day thereafter.



Some quick tips for maintaining your manicure:

  • Use cuticle oil every day.
  • Keep your nail length uniform
  • Drink lots of water!!!

Easy at Home Steps for the Perfect Manicure

11074322_441153616062440_5474100133415238718_nI want to let you in on a little known secret:  Jamberry is more than just nail wraps.  Jamberry has quietly and quickly been developing and introducing some of the most innovative nail care products on the market.  No joke.  So, regardless of what you think about nail wraps, regardless of what you think about direct sales and regardless of what you think you know about nail care – take note of this:  Jamberry is producing some game changers in the “do-it-yourself” nail care market.

All of us have busy schedules and hectic lives.  And while we all love the pampering of a professional manicure and pedicure, we do not always have the time or the budget.  But it doesn’t mean we’re ready to give up our nail care altogether.  And for that, there is Jamberry!  Jamberry has done all of the hard work for you.  Let’s go through this process step-by-step.  This should take approximately 35 minutes from start to finish:

Part I:  Nail Care:

Step 1:  Start by removing your old nail polish. I have said this a million times, because it’s true – Jamberry’s Non-Acetone Lacquer Remover is my favorite product from the S|S 2015 Jamberry Catalog.  This is true whether you use other Jamberry products or not.  It is great for removing Jamberry’s Five Free Lacquers and Jamberry wraps but it is also amazing at removing other brands, as well.


There may be some initial sticker shock when you see the price (and let’s face it – there is and there will be – there was for me too) but I am telling you, you won’t regret it.  I got the bottle shown here in early March.  I have used it almost weekly since then and my bottle is only down to the lettering on the bottle.  So it does not take much.  Meaning this will last a while.

I simply cannot rave enough about this stuff.  First, the pump top bottle has been a  life changer.  This makes the whole process easier and cleaner and allows you to use a whole lot less.  Second, the stuff works.  I call it magic in a bottle.  Third, it leaves a slight residue that really makes your nails look and feel great.  I know nails are not “living” and can’t “breathe” but there is a distinct difference in my nails from before I was using this stuff and now.  My nails look fantastic and are not breaking as easily.  Magic.in.a.bottle!  (But I digress – removal is step one!)


Step 2:  Clip your nails straight across to the length you prefer, then file nails in one direction so the corners are slightly rounded. Finish off by filing with the fine-grade side. To ensure your nails are the same length after filing, line each nail up with its counterpart.  Think “squoval”.

It is the most flattering shape and it maintains the strength of your nails, which will help keep your manicure looking its best.

Step 3Apply cuticle remover to cuticles.  Jamberry has made this easier with the Cuticle Remover Pen (my second favorite product from the S|S 2015 Jamberry Catalog).  I also like Sally Hansen instant cuticle remover but it is a lot thicker and messier.  With one click of your Jamberry Cuticle Remover Pen, you can neatly apply this cuticle remover with no waste.  And while the pen is handy for keeping with you at all times, my favorite time to apply is right before I hop in the shower because…

Relaxing Nail Soak for when you have the time to pamper yourself!

Step 4:  Soak your Nails.  It’s important to soak nails before pushing back your cuticles.  By applying the remover right before I hop in the shower, I am combining Steps 3 and 4.  Efficiency is key for my lifestyle.  This way I don’t have to skip a step and it is one step that makes a HUGE difference in how long your manicure lasts.  But it is also the step that gets skipped the most.  Don’t do that.  If you HAVE time to pamper (and I hope you do!!), prepare a nail soak by placing a few drops of cuticle oil, jojoba or almond oil (in a pinch, any oils will do) in a bowl of warm water. Soak your hands for 5 minutes. Pat dry.  It IS essential that your nails are dry before you move onto the next step.

Jamicure of the Day – Candy Chevron by the Camp Fire

Trudy S. always has the most beautiful Jamicures but she has really taken it to another level:

“I had just taken my wraps off to do a new set when hubby asked how much longer I needed. He thought we could go out tonight and set around the campfire. A light bulb went off!

I told him to give me 2 minutes to gather up my supplies and I would just do them at the lake. There were 19 people setting around the fire. 15 of them ladies. (the guys were cleaning fish and visiting elsewhere) While the other ladies were setting visiting, crocheting, peeling potatoes, I broke out my Jams and simply started applying. I wasn’t even trying to draw attention. wink emoticon smile emoticon The questions started rolling. Most of them had seen my posts, but never really caught their attention. They were watching intently and were amazed at how quickly and easy they went on… (They were also commenting on how pretty my natural nails were and I told them they were horrible before I started using all of those products combined).” 

There were applied at CAMP FIRE!!!! It doesn’t get any better than that!

Products: Beauty Boost, Strengthening Base Coat, Candy Chevron and Grape Fruit

Let Your Faith Be Bigger Than Your Fears!


I read this quote the other day that really resonated with me because I tend to be on the passive side. I’m fairly easy going so a lot of times growing up it was easy and comfortable to be a “spectator” rather than a “participant”. A lot of my friends liked me because I was always ready to go and didn’t really care where – which meant they got to dictate where and what we did. Everyone was happy.

Then at one point I wasn’t very happy and I made a list of things that made me happy. And low and behold I really wasn’t doing very many of those things because I was always going along with what other people wanted. So I made it my goal to work the things on that list into my life and I instantly became a happier, more fulfilled person.
