.Today I have some cute patterned Jamberry Nail shields to share with you! These nail shields are a thin plastic nail strip with an adhesive backing. They fit to your nail like a Sally Hansen nail strip, but since they aren't made of actual polish they are supposed to last longer. I haven't done a wear test so I can't speak for the wear time. They come in tons of patterns and you can even upload pictures and design your own (which I will be doing here shortly.. hello nerdy nail wraps!) I was recently given some of these strips as a sample, and I ended up ordering a full sheet of the holographic silver nail wraps. They all look so cute!
This mani is a Jamberry Nail Sheild on my index and pinky finger and two coats of piCture pOlish Dorothy who on my middle and ring fingers.
My only issue with these nail decals is that they may be difficult on some nails. My nails, particularly my index fingernail, have a high arch (that's the curve of your nail from the cuticle to the tip of the nail) that caused issues with application. I followed all of the directions exactly and had one nail shield that fit perfectly (pinky) and one that wrinkled and didn't fit at all (index). I tried contacting the creator of Jamberry nail shields and was told that using a hot rice bag to heat the shield further might help, I never got a clear answer as to whether it is the shape of my nails causing this issue. Luckily my accent nail (ring finger) is very flat, so these make great accent nails for my manicures.
Jamberry nail shields (set of 18 can do 18-36 nails/toes) can be purchased for $15 USD from their online store.
Have you tried Jamberry Nail Shields? What is your experience with these strips?
