I’m going to take a guess that you probably like to win stuff. I mean, who the heck doesn’t?! I’d like to do a giveaway every now and then on my blog and I’m super excited to share my first one (now that I’m back blogging) with you today! So, here it goes…
So, I’m a girly girl. I enjoy cute shoes, funky jewelry, makeup, purses, clothes and having cute nails! Now, what I’m not a fan of is sitting down and painting my nails, having it get outside the “lines” of my fingernails and onto my skin (especially on my right hand, since I am right handed) and then having to sit and sit and sit, hoping they are dry. You can guess what usually happens to me next…yeah, I smudge ’em. I get a big ol’ gouge mark in one or I stick my finger inside the back of my shoe when I go to put my shoes on and my foot rubs against the nail and pushes the dang polish down into a lumpy clump at the end of my nail. Come on, you know you’ve done it. Then, the dang stuff only last a few days before it starts chipping off and looking all cruddy. Because of these annoyances, I rarely ever do my nails. Sure, you can go get them done and pay $20 or so every couple weeks for the professional stuff, but let’s be real. I’m basically a stay at home mom, so that is NOT in our budget. What’s a girl to do?
I’ve found the solution with an awesome company called Jamberry Nails! A sweet friend of mine (who I’ve only known online over the past 10 or so years, but I’m hoping to get the chance to meet someday) is a Jamberry Consultant and I decided to go ahead and do an online party with her back in February and just check them out. Sherri sent me a sample and I put them on two fingers on each hand and painted the rest of my nails, to be able to do the 7 day challenge and see how they stood up compared to nail polish. Well, I was made a believer when my nail polish started to chip off and look terrible and the Jamberry nail wraps still looked awesome! In fact, they looked awesome all 7 days and even withstood me taking off and putting on gloves a million times at work (ok, I know I said I was a stay at home mom, but 1-2 days a week I do have an awesome job…more about that in another post), washing my hands repeatedly and having my hands in dishwater for a couple hours. I’d say that’s pretty darn impressive, wouldn’t you? Here was my test Jamicure. If you look close, you can see that I had put a dent in my pointer finger’s polish right from the start. Ugh.
Well, that online party I did exploded! I had so many people interested in trying these nail wraps and I ended up with quite the loot for free and half price. Check it out! That’s 12 sheets of wraps and a mini heater and I only paid like $25 for all of it!
I cannot tell you how much fun I had picking out which designs to get. I snagged a couple that I knew were retiring that month, so that I wouldn’t miss out. I really fell for the florals and I’m so glad that I got as many florals as I did. You can check out Sherri’s website to see all of the awesome designs. Here is one of my favorites with a polka dot accent nail that I did for my birthday manicure.
Here’s a fun Hostess Exclusive Design I got.
Even just those few that I’ve shown you are completely different design styles. Here are a couple more of my favorites…
Yeah, you saw that right, you can put them on your toes too!!! How cute is that? Don’t you just love all of these designs too? Want to know another really cool thing about Jamberry? They have an option for you to design your own wraps! So awesome! While you can apply them with a blowdryer or other methods, I found the mini heater to be totally worth it. I get awesome adhesion and in fact, I just took off a set of Jams that I had on for over 2 weeks and only took them off because of how much my nails had grown out. My Jams were still going strong!
So, now that I’ve got you good and interested, it’s time to let you know that the super sweet Sherri is offering up a $15.00 Jamberry Gift Certificate to one lucky winner! I’m guessing you might like to be that winner, so get your entries in the Rafflecopter below. The more options you complete, the more chances you have to win! Good luck!

I was not compensated in any way for this review/giveaway. I just really love the product and wanted to share it with all of you!
