One last Valentine’s Day themed post before the holiday finally arrives and we all gorge on clearance-priced cinnamon hearts (yum!). I actually had a bit of an adventure testing out Jamberry Nail Wraps in Twitterpated* so I’m pretty excited to be able to share them with you before they are, like heart-shaped candy, a day old. These are gorgeous, heat and pressure bonded, nail wraps (or stickers).
I absolutely adore the design of Jamberry Nail Wraps in Twitterpated, these things are so adorable and I received a ton of compliments while wearing them. There are tiny hearts strung along a pale pink background. Another great thing about these is that they are incredibly long, which is perfect if you have really long nails, or if you have short nails like me you can actually use one sticker and cut it in half so that it covers two nails. That means I easily have a second use left of this package!
You are supposed to apply Jamberry Nail Wraps in Twitterpated using a heat source, either a blow dryer, jamberry heater, space heater, etc. and then apply pressure on them directly to your nail. Unfortunately I don’t own any heart sources, so I did a bit of a makeshift method I do not recommend. It also means I wasn’t able to properly test out how long these last, the claim is up to two weeks.
The issue I had with applying Jamberry Nail Wraps in Twitterpated was actually not at all related to my crazy method, but rather to the ability to file down the excess to get a smooth edge to the nail. I have done this easily in the past with other nail stickers, but because these ones are made of vinyl I had a really hard time. I just couldn’t get it smooth, and they were very hard to cut or file. That meant afterwards I would sometimes find things (little bits of fuzz for example) catching on the ends of the nails. That said, I think application would probably get easier with more experience.
Although Jamberry Nail Wraps in Twitterpated didn’t fit all my nails perfectly, I was definitely successful overall in getting ones that matched. Some of the ones included are massive, for your big toe I assume, and if you end up with a few random ones left over these would also work great as an accent nail.
Like I said, I didn’t really get to test out the wear because the edges catching on things annoyed me and I wasn’t able to apply them 100% according to the instructions, but I assume most people own a blow dryer and would be able to! Still, they are adorable and I got lots of compliments on them. Although I don’t wear them often, I do like nail stickers for easy nail art and fun celebrations, and these definitely fit that criteria.
