Happy Fall y’all! It’s officially the first day of fall and I am so glad it’s here!
Without further ado, here’s a picture of my latest mani, Fall Fever, it looks good on short nails (please tell me it does!) which is lucky for me, because I plan to practice the bass a lot this fall.
Fall Fever – a clear wrap that can be layered over lacquer
Today’s mani is called Midnight Celebration, it’s one of my all time favorites that I already wrote about in a post last year called As pretty as I imagined.
This blog is really about Jamberry Nail Wraps and about how easy to do and fun to wear they are, BUT I just have to show off me new necklace storage place:
I got a 24×30 canvas (the premium kind, because I needed it to be extra deep) at Michael’s, and modpodges a poster I already had on it. Then the hubs got a couple of door hinges at Lowe’s and mounted the picture to the wall for me. How do you like my peachy bathroom?
The Jamberry fall catalog is here, I’m so excited!
You can click on the image below to see a pdf version of it, or you can click here to see all the NEW nail wraps, or here to see all the holiday wraps. The holiday wraps are NOT in the fall catalog this year.

I did a French Mani again this time around, just because my husband likes it so much.
French Mani and Pedi
I even did my toes. They do look nice, but it was soooo much work! It’s work to get nail wraps on your toes in general, but French Tips have to be completely custom cut. I don’t really recommend doing this.
For me it generally works best to use one big nail wrap on my big toe and then I paint the rest of them with one of the many beautiful shades of Jamberry Nail Laquers.
OR you can get the brandnew Trushine Gel Enamel System that’s featured in the new catalog.
Please let me know if you would like to host a party or finally become a Jamberry Consultant yourself, I’d love to help you with either of those things! The fall is a great time to do either of those things, or both!
We moved this past week and my last manicure took a beating when I used Magic Erasers to clean over at our old house. They are truly magical and I had to take a couple of wraps off immediately. Since all my Jamberry stuff was all packed up, I ended up applying the next set of nail wraps using Barbara Gage’s stash. She was using them last spring already and introduced me to Jamberry by giving me my first sheet, Lotus. Thanks Mom!
Anywhooooo, so this is a discontinued wrap and I don’t even know it’s name! I’m holding some iced coffee and tried to get my new kitchen paint color in there as well.
Garden Party – Flowery Jamberry Nail wraps
If you’d like to see all the Jamberry nail wraps that are floral inspired, you can go check out the Garden Party section of the website.
This week’s manicure is in preparation for the 4th of July, which has come to be one of my favorite holidays. It always reminds me of how I came to be a US citizen, and I’m so very proud and thankful to get to be a part of this great nation!
So for this picture of Patriot, I went and got out my Naturalization Certificate:
Stars and Stripes Forever!
I hope you guys all have a happy and safe 4th of July!
Today’s mani is another using-up-scraps mani. The wrap is called Queen Anne and has been discontinued. I think a similar look could be achieved by layering Whisper, White Romance, or Chantilly over a coat of Red Currant Jamberry Professional Nail Laquer.
I’m holding a sample from our new countertops we’re getting in the picture. It’s heavy, I think that’s why my skin might be so red. Clearly I should take a photoshop class. I’ll put it on the list…..
Goodbye Queen Anne!
On the diametrically opposed end of the spectrum of things you might want to decorate our nails with, Jamberry now has licensed the Undertow Camo design! There’s Undertow Blue, and Undertow Camo to choose from, as well as Muddy Girl Camo, and Muddy Girl Pink.
Mermaid Tales – it matches Grandma’s powder room wallpaper. Weird.
Today’s mani is Sunny Lotus, and as the story usually goes: I didn’t think I’d like the color, but I do! And it’s definitely very summer-y.
In the picture you can see why I’ve been keeping my nails so short recently: I’ve started playing the double bass. It’s a childhood dream coming true and I’m loving it.
Hi Readers! Today’s mani is not for sale, because it was a reward for achieving the rank of Lead Consultant.
I wouldn’t have picked this color myself, but now it’s kind of growing on me!
Lead Consultant Wrap
Please contact me to find out more about joining Jamberry Nails as an Independent Consultant.
“Should I sell Jamberry?” is what you may be asking yourself. If you love the product and intend to buy it and use it, then the answer is YES! Becoming a Jamberry Independent Consultant is worth it just for the discount and for all the things that come with your new consultant kit pictured below:
Jamberry New Consultant Starter Kit
Included in your kit is also 3 month of free use of a professional website. Should you decide that you “only” want to be a hobbyist after 3 months, you can just let that expire and still enjoy buying Jamberry nail wraps for friends and family at a discount.
But my guess is that after 3 months you’ll have such great time AND made money to keep you hooked and wanting to grow your new business more!
I finally redid my nails after 17 days! The wraps weren’t lifting or anything, my fingernails had just grown a lot and the painted accent nail was reduced to a speck (without picking at it!) Anyway, it was time for something new. I used Gold Criss Cross, which was discontinued this Spring. A dear friend and customer had given me half a sheet, otherwise I would probably never have gone for golden nails.
But now I LOVE them!
Gold Criss Cross
So much that I want to get Siren Song, Butterfly Effect, and Prince Charming!
Since my nails are short these days I decided to apply the wraps by clipping the nail and the wrap together, rather than filing off the excess wrap like I normally do. It was lots faster, but the verdict is still out on how they hold up.
