Jamberry Nails - Faded Deco

Hi everyone!!

I recently received a set of Jamberry nail wraps from a friend to review.  This was my first time trying the brand, so I was excited to give them a try.  She sent me the Faded Deco design (A167), which has a fun design with turquoise and pink.  I decided to pair it with a turquoise polish by So Laque!, Bleu Model.  Let's take a look.


While I love this design, the application of these nail wraps were a struggle.  They're thicker than other wraps I've tried and require the use of a blow dryer to soften the wrap when applying it.  I also had difficulty getting them to lay flat on the entire nail.  I do really like how this mani turned out though.    I think if I used these wraps again, I would have to take extra care when applying them.

So Laque! Bleu Model is a polish I received a long time ago in a swap from London.  The polish was a bit thin and required three coats for full opacity.  It's a really pretty shade.

Have you ever tried Jamberry Nail wraps?  How was your experience with them?

Jamberry has lots of fun designs and really helpful for those who aren't good with nail art to spice up a mani.  If you'd like to purchase some wraps of your own, visit this site.

Pretty Serious - Swatch and Learn

Hi everyone!!

Today I have a beauty to share with you that I received as a gift from my polish bestie, Lakeisha.  Thanks again Lakeisha!!  Swatch and Learn is a collaboration polish between Mary of Swatch & Learn and Pretty Serious Cosmetics.  Swatch and Learn is a lovely green packed with blue and pink shimmer.  The color shift is really pretty in person.  Here I used two coats with Girly Bits Razzle Dazzle as an accent.
