A perfect Jamberry manicure is EASY to get – and even easier if you using the right tools for the job! Yup, Jams can be applied with stuff you have at home – a regular hair dryer, scissors, nail file, etc. And you’ll have an awesome long-lasting look. But….
The truth is, if you want a proper application and want to get the best wear out of your wraps, using the tools Jamberry has designed specifically to work with the wraps is the way to go! These are not luxury goods or price-gouging add-ons; these are the tools that give you a perfectly proper application every time. These are the tools that will give you that two-week wearability that Jamberry is known for from your wraps! And they’re all less than $20!
Why go with the Jamberry mini-heater over your hair dryer? 1. The noise level – the heater is SO quiet that I can do my nails sitting next to my hubs while we binge-watch “The Wire.” 2. The consistent heat ouput; 3. The heater puts out heat, but not a gust of air like your hair dryer; 4. It’s purple. (Pro-Tip – It’s REALLY good for heating up price stickers to remove them, and even better to get Dora the Explorer stickers off of your wood floors. #MomLife.)
And the new application kit – so convenient! It holds all of your stuff – including that Jamberry heater – all in one cute purple cosmetic case so you never have to hunt for a file or your nail scissors again! This cute little kit includes:
- 2 alcohol wipes
- 1 pair of nail scissors
- 1 pair of nail clippers
- 1 buffer block
- 2 orange sticks
- 1 rubber cuticle pusher
- 1 nail file
And speaking of nail scissors, the scissors that come in this kit are top-notch. A cut above the rest, if you will. (See what I did there?)
But – there is ONE tool that you can’t find from Jamberry –and it can mean the difference between “Your nails look great” and “Your nails are AMAZING!!” Enter – the cuticle spoon. Yes, it looks like a torture device. But this little thing is a Jam-Miracle worker. Use it to prep your nails – push back the cuticles, get rid of that pesky “invisible cuticle,” and clean your nails.
Then – and here’s where the magic happens. After you’ve applied your wraps, heat the cuticle spoon with your Jamberry heater. Then, use it as an iron to flatten any bubbles or ridges: press it flat against your nails (it’s the perfect shape!) to apply uniform pressure to the wrap and the adhesive. It’s perfect for an edge that is lifting up on you or to give a little extra oomph to those tips! The best part? You can usually find them for around $5.00 – Either on Amazon or at a beauty supply store – even Zulily had one on their site over the weekend!
