[UPDATED Product Review] Jamberry Nail Wraps

WhAt hApPenD? 

The pictures I am about to show you are actually right before I redo my nails. The worst hand was my left which I already peeled off so the picture is of the right hand where the nail wrap is still on.
On the second day the tips started to peel already (Picture 1) and by 4th day the inner part start to peel and kept catching my hair (Picture 2). I tried to apply the top coat as well as underneath the wrap where it was peeling but no luck. The reason why the right hand lasted longer was because I filed away the parts that were peeling.

Having the wrap on top of polished nails was okay.
There's no point in applying top coat right after wrap application.

It is fast application that you can do quickly before an event.
You can even bring it while you travel because hotels have hair dryers you can use.
If you applied right it can last a week. I can't say it can last 2 weeks like they say.
Would I purchase? Honestly no, because there are cheaper alternatives but if you are nail addicts it is worth trying. 😝

[Product Review] Jamberry Nail Wraps


  • Hair dryer / Jamberry heater
  • Jamberry nail wraps
  • Wooden nail stick
  • Rubber cuticle pusher
  • Scissors
  • Nail filer


  • JAMBERRY directions
  • My Directions:
    • Wash your hands
    • Clean your nails & any nail preparations you need to do (trim, buffer, etc.) [I actually even painted on base coat, black nail polish, and top coat on]
    • Pick the sticker that fits your nail size. It is better to leave a little space between your nail wrap and your skin just like when you apply nail polish.
    • Peel a little bit of the corner and use the wooden nail stick to peel half way. Avoid touching the sticker with your hands.
    • Cut the sticker in half.
    • Holding the sticker with the wooden nail stick, apply heat with your dryer in all low settings. Heat it for a few seconds.
    • Apply the wrap unto your nail. The round part of the sticker should be closer to the cuticles. 
    • Using the rubber cuticle pusher, press on the the nail wrap unto your nail. 
    • Cut and file the excess.
    • Apply a little heat on your nail and rubber cuticle pusher again to make sure the nail wrap is well on your nail.
    • DONE! [I am debating whether to apply top coat..will update you how that goes]


  • Easy application
  • Quick
  • Variety of styles


  • pricier than drugstore ($15)
  • available only online

I do regret not trying this sooner. I thought it would take some concentration and time but it really took like 2 mins (more like 7 but you get the idea). I was sent this by my friend, Melissa Montenegro (I am not sponsored, she just sent them to me to review). Although the nail wrap is for applying on top of bare nails, I did put on base coat, a coat of polish, and top coat. I also debated if I want to apply top coat on top . I do not know if that will mess up the wrap or help it. So I will have them on without top coat this round and next time I will apply top coat. Come back for an update =] . The nail wrap is supposed to stay on up to 2 weeks.

    • applying on bare nails vs. applying on polished nails 
    • applying top coat on the nail wrap vs. not applying top coat on the nail wrap
