Layering Your Jamberry Wraps

I totally adore the Jamberry Nail Wrap Snowbound and had already purchased it--
Then I saw this picture-- WOW!!!

Snowbound is a "clear" wrap and is beautiful all on it's own (top left image in the picture)
But look at the AMAZING results when you layer it on top of another wrap.
Because part of the wrap is "clear" you see the wrap underneath show through.




I decided to layer Snowbound over the October Hostess Exclusive Wrap.
I also took it a step further and continued to layer it with TrueShine Gel.
(One layer base coat, one very light layer Sweet 16, then top coat-- curing in between each coat)

The results were GORGEOUS!


Layering wraps is very simple--
I like to apply the first wrap as indicated on the video to the right.
Then I do a second application-- just like the first application with the wrap I want layered on top.
The secret to layering is getting the wraps to line up right on top of each other.

I am highlighting "layering" all during the month of December on my Facebook page.

Gel Test over Wraps

OK--I'm sold!!!
Everyone is putting gel on top of their wraps. They say it helps them last a whole lot longer-- So I put it to the test!

I applied the Starstruck nail wrap (heating it with the Mini Heater)
Then I applied the TrueShine Gel Base Coat  and cured it with TrueShine LED curing lamp
Then a very light coat of Bachelorette TrueShine Gel (cure again with lamp)
Then the TrueShine Gel Top Coat (cure final time with lamp)

Here is my mani at DAY 5!


WOW!!! No tattering at the tips, no chipping, no smudges, just long lasting, very cute nails! And using a glitter gel just gives it that extra sparkle-- 

This manicure lasted 2 full weeks with no touch-ups whatsoever!


Every time someone saw my nails they would say "did you do that yourself?"
"Why yes I did!" And YOU can too!

Trying Gels

My daughter-in-law introduced me to Jamberry and my daughter signed up before me. We all LOVE it! When my daughter came to visit me last month I told her to bring her gels-- I would give it a try.

I LOVE gels! Easier to apply than I ever thought! I went super light and super simple--
Still really pretty.

The trick to apply the gel is to do it in very thin layers--even if you have to do two or more coats--curing in-between each one.
