I was recently offered a sample from a former co-worker of mine who has been dabbling in Jamberry Nail Wraps. Obviously I accepted! Today I have a mani inspired by the nail wraps I received, Wild Flower.
Wild Flower is a bright and sunny floral pattern with a sky blue base and a variety of muticoloured flowers. I used the wraps as an accent nail on each hand and combined it with Sally Hansen Triple Shine, Statemint. Statemint is a yellow leaning green creme, it contrasts perfectly with the bright floral pattern of Wild Flower.
Statemint applied well in two coats and dried fairly quickly. I
applied one coat of Seche Vite over both the polished nails and the nail
wraps. What I love about these wraps is that they are vinyl which makes
them pliable and really stick on to the nail! You simply heat, apply
and push the vinyl wrap on to the nail. I have tried these wraps before
and they were surprisingly a lot more durable than I had anticipated.
This time I tried it over a base of Bio Seaweed Gel UV base (which are
applied to the rest of my nails as well). I found the wraps held up on
one nail better than the other and came to the conclusion that it was
the gel beneath that had it peeling slightly at the base of
my nail since the wrap went lower than the gel base.
with the slight peeling at the base of one nail it still held up
surprisingly well to day to day activities such as washing dishes,
cooking and showering. The hot/warm water did not effect the bond of the
wrap on the nail which was great. I'm curious to see how it would hold
up in a hot yoga class, maybe I will test these out again next time, I
once had a fake nail pop right off in class! Oops!
I applied a top coat of Seche Vite over the nail wraps, although it is not really
necessary it adds some extra shine.
