Hello Everyone:) I hope your weekend is going well. We are in the middle of a snowstorm today in Minnesota so it looks like we will have a white Christmas. It's so pretty out today:)
To celebrate the prettiness outside, I would like to show you a pretty manicure. This is Zoya Regan with an accent nail using a Jamberry Nail Shield.
As you know, I tried and loved the Sally Hansen Nail Strips here. The big issue I have with with them is that when you open the pack of strips, you have to use all of them right away or they will dry out. I wasn't aware of that when I did that manicure (with just accent nails) so the rest in the pack were useless. I was on the lookout for another brand and decided to try the Kiss brand strips that are stickers. Those were a nightmare. I didn't even post a photo. You have to trim them to make them fit and they were so sticky that I screwed up a bunch of them just trying to get one to look half-way decent. I then went to one of my FB groups and asked for ideas for other nail strips. That's when I heard from Kelly Baas from OohLaLaPolish.com. She told me about the Jamberry Nail Shields that she sells.
She offered to send me some to try and I happily took her up on her offer:) She didn't ask for a review or anything, but I love them so much that I had to share! They were WAY easier than the Kiss strips. They required one more step than the Sally Hansen and that was a hair dryer. You pull the strip off of the page, warm it up with a hair dryer, stick it on the nail, trim it and file the edges off, and warm it up again to make it seal. It was very quick and easy and didn't have any trouble getting it to stick and stay...and it was my first time trying it.
There are tons of different designs - check them out here. And Kelly shows them on her blog as well. Here is a post where she shows another awesome design and provides a promo code for your purchase.
I haven't gotten into nail art yet, but I am starting to get interested in it. This is a quick and easy way to get the nail art look. And if you like your nail art to be more subtle, I encourage you to try these. Also, depending on the length of your nails, you can get at least 2 uses with one strip.
Kelly recently asked if I would like to hold a Jamberry Nails giveaway on my blog and I told her that I would love to. So watch for that in the next week or so.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by:)
