It's all about the nails....

Hi crafty friends! When I find something I just love, of course I want to share it with all of you. My love of paper and pattern has spread over to my nails.  For about 2 years I've been wearing a gel nail, but somehow I can't reconcile all the organic food we eat with the harsh chemicals I've been putting on my nails. 

A friend of mine recently became a Jamberry Independent Consultant and I've been watching all the cute designs she's put on her nails.  Best of all Jamberry is free of harsh chemicals and formaldhyde, they are even Vegan friendly if that's your thing :)  You can find Debbie's little shop HERE. Here's a peek at what's on my nails today -

I've been sanding down the gel nail below and adding the Jamberry shields on top to cover the "gap" between gel and natural nail. Having worn acrylic nails for years before, I know that my natural nail below these gels will be weak and look terrible.  I'm protecting the nail while the fakers beneath grow off.  I don't want to see the mess I've created from years of gel nail wearing. 

I will say that adhering the shield over the gel nail is a little tricky because the levels are uneven despite all my sanding. The gels have created a "curved" shape which I have to stretch the wrap a little bit. But there are SO many handy YouTube videos you can watch on the subject.  (and I've watched a bunch. So fun!)

But people look how cute they are on toes.  Sorry it's a foot photo, and that can be gross, but friends, I have CHEVRONS on my toes. I'm in love. These babies are rumored to last between 4 and 6 weeks on toes.  I've had them on for over a week with no issues at all. No lifting, no chipping, no rubbing off.  They're perfect!

If you're interested at all, I invite you to attend a little "Virtual Nail Party"  my friend Debbie will gladly send you a sample if you want to try them out, and she's also got some fun give-aways and drawings. In fact, there is a drawing for a free Mini Heater open till TONIGHT at 11pm. Please message me if you'd like to join the party and I'll add you on Facebook. 

Here's what's on my Wish List

Grey and White Polka
Poppy and White Polka
Black and White Skinny

Navy Quatrefoil - must have these ones to go with these that I already have Nautical and won't they be so cute.

Please leave me a comment if you have any questions I'm happy to help!

Hey Jo!!! I too have had nails for the past couple of years and recently took them off to give my nails a break for the summer (plus they grow faster this time of year). Anyway, they are in such rough shape, it is taking them a lot longer to come back this time. I must seriously look at this as I really miss them and having that feeling of great nails! The blue and chevron is awesome too!
