I love having my nails done, I especially love not having to get them done often. The past couple of years I have really enjoyed getting Shellac no chip manicures, but don't always have time to go every two weeks and it's about $30-$40 per time, so I started using Sally Hansen Nail Strips- they work pretty well for a few days- as long as you use a top coat, which it doesn't say to do.
I stumbled upon something even better. Jamberry Nail Shields! The shields are a vinyl-based film covering that is both heat and pressure activated. These are not stickers or decals and they are not made of nail polish like Sally Hansen's. The variety Jamberry offers wowed me.
Dawn, an awesome representative from Jamberry sent me a sheet to review and told me to a video on the website showing how to apply them. At first, it was off-putting that I had to be taught how to put them on, I just wanted something easy.

They didn't take very long to apply, the only thing that bothered me was that it got pretty hot using the hair dryer to warm up the shields and then applying heat to them again once they are on the nail. Next time, I will probably use tweezers to hold the shields while they are heating up. The process is effective, I left them on my toes for a week and ended up taking them off because I had a meeting to go to and wanted neutral color nails. It says to remove them by applying heat again, but I peeled them off after picking at a corner.
I'm not a big fan of green, but I really enjoyed having this color and design on my toes. I got a lot of compliments, too.
