What are Jamberry Nail Wraps and How to Apply Your Jamberry Nails

What Are Jamberry Nail Wraps?

Jamberry Nail Wraps  are a solid film covering that can be applied directly to the nail to achieve a look not found anywhere else. This special material is both pressure and heat activated to create a water tight bond to your nail. The shields are made in the USA, with no harsh chemicals and are latex free.

This new nail treatment can be applied in about fifteen minutes at home. With over three hundred styles to choose from, these designer wraps are made to last up to two weeks on fingers and 6 weeks on toes. Unlike traditional nail polish, they won’t chip and require no drying time. It’s so easy to achieve a professional, salon look at a fraction of the cost.

Jamberry Nail Wraps are the newest way to accessorize your fingers and toes! Get your own unique, professional nail design and say “goodbye!” to nail polish. With today’s hottest celebrities already wearing unique nail designs, it’s quickly becoming a fashion “must have.

Tools of the Trade...

How to Prep and Apply Your Jamberry Nail Wraps?

1. First if you have any nail polish on, remove that with Nail polish remover.  Then WASH your hands with common Grease Fighting Dish Soap.  This Helps remove any oils that you naturally have on your nails.  If you have really oily Nail Beds, you can soak your nails in the soap for a few minutes, then wash your hands.
 2. Second, Push back your cuticles.  Even if they LOOK like they are pushed back, make sure. Any piece of skin on the nail will prevent your Wraps from Adhering correctly.  ( you will be surprised what is there and you didn't see.)  File your nails to the desired length and shape. 
 3. Next, Lightly Buff the nail surface with your buffer block.  If you have GEL Nails or Acrilic Nails that you do not want to buff the surface, you can lightly spray your nail surface with hair spray, to give the wrap something more to adhere to.
  4. Once your Nails are filed to the length you want and the surface is buffed, wipe your nail down with isopropyl alcohol (wipes or from bottle with cotton balls) or Acetone (don't use non-acetone).  If you are using Hair Spray, do this BEFORE you spray on the Hair Spray.  Once your Nail is CLEAN and PREPPED, DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT Touch your nail.  You don't want to get any oils from your fingers back on the nail you just prepped.

5, Next, choose the Nail Wrap that fits your finger.  If you are in between sizes, go smaller.  You don't want the Wrap to Touch your skin.  I made Templates of my Nails to make selection easier and it allows me to cut wraps to fit my nail perfectly EVERY time.  The templates also allow me to be more frugal and get more applications out of my wraps.  If you would like to see how to make templetes of your nails, here is the link.....making-nail-templates-for-your-jamberry
 6. Use your Orange stick, or a pair of tweezers to remove your wrap from the backing. DO NOT touch the Adhesive side.  I cut mine out (I try not to waste any), but you can lift them off the full sheet and cut it from there.
 7.  Hold your Wrap in front of your Heat Source (Jamberry Mini Heater, Hair Dryer, Small Room Heater, etc.)  Jamberry recommends 3-5 seconds. I hold mine there a little longer.  You will see the material become soft and flexible.
 8. Apply the wrap to your finger, careful not to let it touch your cuticle or skin on the side of your nails. DON'T worry if you get in the wrong spot.  You can lift and reposition if needed.  Once you have it in the correct spot, apply pressure with your opposite thumb or finger.
 9. Using your Nail Scissors, cut off any excess wrap. You don't have to cut it all, or make it perfect.  Your file will help with that.  Once the excess it cut off, apply more heat and then pressure, making sure to get a good fit.  Use your orange stick, or rubber cuticle pusher to help with the edges and at the nail bed.

10. File off the excess wrap at a 90 degree angle to your nail, only in a downward motion.  Aggresive Filing is not nessarry and may damage the wrap.  Once you start filing downward you will start to see the excess roll off.  If your nails do not extend past your finger tip, use cuticle clippers to cut the excess off.

11. If you have any creasing or buckling, I found that using a rice bag helps to warm the wrap, while smoothing it out.  I have pre-made Rice bags if anyone is interested.

10. Finally once you have a water tight seal, apply Cuticle oil to your nails, to keep your nails nurished.  Jamberry has Cuticle oil.  I use Coconut oil, because I have a ton of it.
 You can also use coconut oil to remove your wraps. See the Video Below.
