A Break from the Typical Fall Colors

Hi Readers!

On Friday night I did my nails again and used up some scraps from an all time favorite that has been discontinued. It was called Teal Sparkle. I think the closest matches for it are Fountain of Youth and Jaded. I also used Fractal for an accent nail, it’s on the new sample cards. I LOVE IT and want to buy a whole sheet!

Teal Sparkle is discontinued, but Fountain of Youth and Jaded are good replacements

Fractal – a new design this fall

Don’t forget fall is a GREAT TIME to host a party, people are in shopping mode, so the hostess rewards are going to be many for those who make the time to host an in-home party this fall!

Faux Fox and Fox Trot

Gotta love the the Foxes, so CUTE!

Faux Fox and Fox Trot

Here’s a picture of my daughter’s hand and my hand wearing Fox Trot and Faux Fox respectively. And the sheets are in the picture too, so you can see how much is left!

And here’s a picture of my left hand after helping my friend Kelli, about whose farmhouse flip you can read here, paint the walls with KILZ. KILZ is a primer that will ruin any manicure other than Jamberry nail wraps, and so would most other construction projects:

Jamberry nail wraps can stand up to almost anything!

I got some KILZ on my manicure

not even KILZ destroys this manicure!

AND was able to clean it back off!

I actually went back and helped over there some more since then, and my mani is still alive and well!

Apple Cider

Finally, finally, FINALLY, I put on what I knew at first sight would be my favorite new wrap: Apple Cider. It rose to be the top selling wrap in it’s first week of being available!

Makes me wish I kept my nails longer, but the whole bass playing thing keeps me from it these days:

Apple Cider - top selling Jamberry Nail wrap currently!

My new favorite


Fall Fever

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 - looks nice on short nails!

Fall Catalog is HERE!

Hi Readers!

The Jamberry fall catalog is here, I’m so excited!

I did a French Mani again this time around, just because my husband likes it so much.

Jamberry French Pedi

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!


Sunny Lotus II

Wow, summer is almost over and we’ve settled into our new home.
My latest project was reupholstering the booth that came with our house.

AND when I did my nails yesterday with Sunny Lotus again, it turned out to match the project, so here’s a picture of that:

Goodbye Summer, this works for fall as well!

Sunny Lotus – one of my all time favorite wraps!

The Fall catalog is coming out soon and with the announcement of that Jamberry came out with the Going, Going, GONE! list. It lists all the wraps that are going to be discontinued on August 31st. Make sure you get your favorites while they are available!

Going going GONE, order your favorites wraps before August 31st!


Something Old and Something New

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…..


Queen Anne - a discontinued Jamberry Nail Wrap. Try combining a laquer with a clear floral wrap such as Chantilly to achieve the same look.

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

Mermaid Tales – it matches Grandma’s powder room wallpaper. Weird.

Vintage Deco

Here’s my latest manicure, Vintage Deco, a wrap that has sadly been discontinued. In case you’re a fan of the pattern more than the color, there are some other options: Bright Deco (available in matte finish too) and Faded Deco.

I used some white nail polish as an accent nail.


Check out Bright Deco and Faded Deco for the same pattern in different colors!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I did my nails on Saturday, using Emerald Argyle. They are definitely green! I would probably not have bought those to wear, but I had some left in my inventory that I hadn’t sold, so I decided to put them on, and I really liked them more than I thought I would!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
