Jamberry inspired!

Hey y'all!

Today on the blog I have this Jamberry inspired nail art to share with you. A group of nail friends and I partake in a weekly challenge and this mani was a product of a "recreate a Jamberry wrap" weekly challenge. I was really pleased with how they came out. I'm also playing around with hand poses so I am showing a new one in this post. 




Let me start with showing you what I used to create this mani:

Left to right (front): KBShimmer Clearly On Top, Qtica Natural Nail Growth Stimulator, NYC Tudor City Teal, Orly Steal The Spotlight, and Sally Hansen Xreme Wear Pep-Plum. (Back): Acrylic craft paints for the details


So I started out with the Qtica for my base coat as usual to protect my natural nail and then added a couple of coats of NYC Tudor City Teal to my index, middle, and ring fingers as a base color for the nail art. I added Orly Steal the Spotlight to my pinkie and thumb for some sparkly goodness. Once my base color was dry, I used white acrylic paint to make the dots, Sally Hansen Pep-Plum for the base of my roses, and light purple acrylic paint for the details of the roses. I went back with two different green acrylic paints for the leaves of the roses. Once it was all dry, I topped with KBShimmer Clearly On Top to seal everything in! 

Here's another shot of my mani with the wrap on the left to show my inspiration:



What do you think of this mani? Have you ever used Jamberry or recreated one of their wraps?

  5. Absolutely stunning! No I haven't tried them or recreated them. I'm not a fan of applying wraps so I tend to avoid them.

  7. I've heard that jamberry is a total pain to apply. I'll pass, I'd rather paint my nails. Your recreation and color combo is beautiful!

  9. I like to stamp and have never tried Jamberry plus their reps are annoying to say the least. I love your mani though especially the roses!!

  11. I have used Jamberry before. I like to use them as an accent nail since I'm not very good at nail art. That being said, I prefer to paint my nails because I like to change them often and the Jams last too long for that on me.
