Removing Jamberry Wraps – Even When Layered with GEL!

Does the gel damage your nails? Do the wraps damage your nails?  How do you take them off?

I get these questions all the time from people who are curious about Jamberry products, but haven’t given them a try yet. Lately, I’ve been absolutely hooked on layering the Jamberry wraps with the TruShine gel enamel system.  I love the look of the wraps, the extra durability and strength from the gel, and the ease of removal.

That’s right – an EASY removal with a gel manicure.  What?

Here’s the secret!  Love a Jamberry design?  Put in on FIRST like a normal Jamicure, then apply the TruShine base and top coats as normal – layered OVER the wraps.  You get a diamond-hard glossy top coat that will protect your nails – and still be a gorgeous and fun manicure.

Then, because you’ve layered the gel on the WRAP, and not your nail bed, you can remove the whole shebang just like removing wraps.  I tested it out after hearing about this magic – check it out!

MAGIC.  Take a look at my nails after I’ve removed the wraps.  No flaking, no white spots, no cracks.  Like I said in the video, there are very few things that I really try to “upsell,” as most people call it.  Orange sticks?  Get them at a drugstore.  Rubbing alcohol wipes?  Same.  Buy ’em in bulk.  But the LACQUER REMOVER.  It’s WORTH it.  When I use Jamberry’s lacquer remover, my nails are healthy, strong, and moisturized.  The wraps come off in seconds with no resistance or pulling.  It’s acetone-free, so it’s not drying on my cuticles.  If there’s ONE product that you COULD get elsewhere on the cheap but SHOULDN’T, it’s the lacquer remover.  Trust, girls.  Trust.  You can find it here!

So there you have it! An easy damage-free way to wear gel, have the look that only Jamberry can give you, all while saving money by doing it at home!

Remember – this is JUST for when you’re wearing the gel on top of your Jams, NOT when you have the gel directly on your nails. ***If you have a straight-up gel-only TruShine manicure, you’ll need to follow the soak-off removal process that I’ve shown you before.  It takes about 10 minutes – and is WORTH it to be able to do it at home, with zero damage, and the only person you have to tip is yourself!! ***

Treat Yo’Self – with this 1-2 Pampering Punch!

One of the common questions I get about Jamberry Nails is, “But don’t you like going to the salon? It’s so nice to just do for yourself!”  Nope.  With the nail and hand care products from Jamberry in the new Spring Catalog, you can give yourself an indulgent manicure AT HOME – with salon-quality results!  The trick is to use the right tools and the right products, in the right way!

Here’s how you Treat Yo’Self with the Jamberry Nails 1-2 Punch: 

Treat Yo Self 2First: Nail Prep.  Using Jamberry’s Lacquer Remover and Cuticle Remover Pen, you can prepare and clean your nails to a silky blank canvas.  Jamberry’s Lacquer Remover is AH-MAZING.  I’ve heard other girls talking about it on my team and wondered if it could live up to their hype.  Yup.  The packing is really great – the pump-top helps speed things along and keeps my clumsiness a non-issue.  The remover doesn’t have the overpowering scent that most do (my husband basically wants to leave the State of Illinois when I take polish off of my nails with regular remover), and it works FAST.  Like lightning fast.  And check out just how easy it is to remove your Jamberry wraps with it!!

Next, and this is a crucial step: cuticle care!  We’re all blessed with cuticles, some more mangled than others.  (Like mine.) Even if you’re just using a nail lacquer or polish and not Jamberry wraps, this is step not to be skipped if you want all of your hard work to last!!  Pushing back or removing your cuticles – whether you can see them or not, will reap huge rewards when it comes to the longevity of your Jams or polish!

I tried Jamberry’s new Cuticle Remover Pen for the first time this week.  I’m IMPRESSED.  Shout-Caps-Lock-IMPRESSED.  My nails actually look like I’ve just been to the spa for some serious manicure intervention.   If you’ve never used a cuticle remover before, here’s how to do it, the Jamberry way:

How to Use the Jamberry Cuticle Remover Pen

Second: Indulge your Hands.  Using Jamberry’s Cuticle Oil and the Indulgence Hand Care line, moisturize and cleanse your hands with rich and luxurious emollients.  This is the biggest reason why I don’t miss the salon.  Well, other than not having to tip, find a baby-sitter, hope that the pedicure baths have been cleaned this year, and above all, the price tag.  So I guess there are a lot of things I don’t miss about the salon.  But…this is a big one!

Jamberry’s Indulgence Hand Care line is nothing short of it’s name: Indulgent!  My favorite is the “Buff” sugar scrub, which has coconut oil as it’s main ingredient.  It leaves my hands silky and soft – and even after several post diaper-change hand-washings, I can still feel how moisturized my hands are.  A huge number of my customers are in love with the “Nourish” hand cream – my go-to gift for this most recent holiday season.  (Have I mentioned how much I love the consultant discount??  Gift shopping just got a whole lot cheaper!).  Replace a trip to the salon with the Buff and Nourish – for manis and pedis- and you’ll be a believer!

There you have it – my “recipe” to treat yo’self to a pampering Jamberry Nails session. I haven’t missed the salon experience once since my sister-in-law introduced me to the Jamberry way o’ life.  And to be perfectly honest, I have NEVER found those massage chairs comfortable – and I end up with the massage rollers stuck mid-shoulder blade.  Nope – don’t miss it.
