Jamberry Nail Wraps – How do they work?

In this post, I shall be giving a review of the Jamberry nail wraps, as well as showing you guys how the nail wraps turned out on me! I got sent these to try out, and it’s been so fun trying them out because I’ve never actually even heard about nail wraps before, so this was an interesting experience for me. Getting right into it..

The nail wraps came in a simple sheet in an envelope. The prints I asked for are a lipstick red print, which I thought would pretty cool. I didn’t only get the nail wraps, a number of other things came with it, so there’s an extra point!

What else does this come with?

Alcohol swab

Cuticle pusher

Nail file

Alcohol swab: I thought this was a thoughtful thing to include with the nail wraps. The purpose of this is to ensure that your nails are clean before you apply the nail wraps on. It comes as a little sheet.

Cuticle pusher: The cuticle pusher is as any other. It has a slanted side to push your cuticles down and a pointy side to clean your nails.

Nail file: One thing I always look for in a nail file is to see if it’s gritty enough to actually file down the nails. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gotten nail files, that do not file anything.

There are 7 steps to this whole application.

  1. Nail Prep: Push back cuticles. Buff and clean nails with a Nail Prep Wipe or Nail Prep Cleanser.
  2. Match nail wrap that best fits your nail. Err on the smaller size to avoid overlapping on the skin/nail edges, which can cause lifting.
  3. Cut nail wrap in half, pick up wrap from the cut side with an orange stick, and peel away from clear backing sheet.

4. Warm the adhesive side of nail wrap with a Mini-Heater or blow dryer for about 3 seconds. Avoid overheating.

5. Press nail wrap onto nail with the rounded edge at the cuticle. Firmly smooth the nail wrap down the centre of the nail toward the tip. Next, smooth the sides starting at the centre and toward the edges to seal the nail wrap to the nail.

6. Trim excess with nail scissors. File off remaining nail wrap using a downward motion.

7. Apply heat and pressure to the nail wrap until it is bonded to the nail.

My honest thoughts on this

To be honest, if you haven’t done this before or if it’s your first time, it could turn out pretty bad. My first hand was terrible, but that’s all on me, not the product. Jamberry advises us to flatten the nails down through the centre and then flat out the sides when applying on the nail wraps. The process is fun, but you have to be very particular about how you apply them or else it will turn into a terror. There were a lot of folds and wrinkles you could say, on the nail wraps because of how I applied the products. I think ifย  I were to try this again, I would be so much more careful.

I love the prints that they have, as they have a wide variety of prints. I also loved the way they included not just the nail wraps in the package, but other things to help with the process of putting them on. It’s such a great idea, and as soon as I had them on my nails, you could tell they weren’t coming off anytime soon.

It was fun to try out, maybe if I try it again I’ll do it properly.

The end result

  1. That’s awesome. I love nail art but I don’t have the patience for it. lol I need to try these. Good to know that they don’t chip off easily.


  2. I’ve never used nail wraps – what a cute idea! I don’t have the patience for it and I prefer a more classic style but it’s really interesting to get an insight into how they work!

    Sending you good vibes for a wonderful weekend!

  3. Not sure they are my kind of thing but great that they don’t chip off and that once you get the hang of it, then you can have so many different designs on your nails. And they don’t chip off which is always a bonus as I hate it when you get your nails done and within a day they have chipped. And they look great on you.

  5. Nail wraps seem like a cool alternative to painting your nails or getting press-ons. I never heard of them but this is something I will share with my little sister who likes to do her nails with the press-ons, I think she would enjoy this method especially if the nails last a long time. Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚
