Say Yes to Colorful Nails! My New Nail Wraps Obsession

Posted by

Jamberry nail wraps review. Love the patterns! | Live Colorful

You guys know that I love helping women and moms with their businesses and projects. I’m a huge advocate of finding a passion and making money out of it, and if you can make it work while you stay at home and raise your kids even better!

So when a friend from Mexico, that now lives in Boston, shared with me her new adventure as Jamberry consultant, I got really excited for her. She wanted me to try the Jamberry nail wraps, and I agreed happily because I couldn’t resist the idea of patterned nails, plus as a busy mom, I really need the ZERO dry time and long-lasting wear without chipping, peeling or fading!

She sent me two different nail wrap designs. The first design that I applied wasn’t a total success. I used my dryer to heat the wraps, and that made the process a bit hard. The good thing was that the designs looked great, and that was enough to get me excited about trying again. So, I got a kit with all the tools I needed for a correct application, including the Jamberry heater and wow! the process the second time was easier than ever.

The designs don’t cover my nails completely, but they honestly look pretty good from far away, and even if you get closer. I applied the nail wraps like 5 days ago and they still look complete.

If you ever want to try them, please let me know, or check out my friend’s consultant site here for information and help. She video called me and helped me through the whole process, which was super helpful.

Taking a long bath is one of my favorite things in the whole world. It’s the perfect opportunity to listen my favorite podcast episodes and relax.

Since this has become one of my weekend beauty routines, my husband bought me a book with tons of bath salts  and bath bombs recipes. Some of them are really easy, and can be made with ingredients that a lot of us have already on our kitchen pantry.

Steps:

  1. Start mixing all ingredients in a bowl. Pour the epsom salts, iodized sea salts and baking soda first, then add the coconut oil, food coloring and scented oil.

  3. Start filling the mason jars with your amazing bath salts. Keep one and give away the others! That’s why I think these bath salts are a great homemade gift idea for friends and family.
