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!
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!
Mermaid Tales – it matches Grandma’s powder room wallpaper. Weird.
Wow, it’s already time for another post! Why so soon? Well, the last post I wrote a few days AFTER I did my nails. But also, I cooked Thanksgiving dinner for 40 people this week and decorated for Christmas. All of that was extremely hard on my nails, so they only lasted 8 days, instead of their usual 12. Actually they could have gone a couple of more days, but I wanted my nails to look great for the party today that I mentioned in the last post. Blah-blah, I can see why they call these things blogs….
It’s Punchy Puff with a Teal Sparkle (discontinued) accent nail.
The Punchy Puff was given to my daughter as a gift and she’s done her nails, her friend’s nails, and now I’ve done mine and there’s still quite a bit left! Probably enough for two more manicures! So you see, Jamberry Nails is a very economical way to do your nails! They cost $15 a sheet, but you get lots of use out of each sheet!
Here’s my latest mani using up one of my favorites, Teal Sparkle. Unfortunately it has been discontinued.
The new Jaded is a pretty close match I think.

I’m holding some Christmas Decorations, which we have put up this weekend.
Speaking of Christmas: My friend Kelli, who blogs here, is hosting a Christmas Shopping Party in her home this coming Saturday. There’s also going to be a Mary Kay Consultant and a Premier Designs Jewelry Consultant. All the consultants are donating party of their proceeds to charity. I’m giving half of my commission from that party to Heart of Hope, which is a Cambodian NGO that seeks to educate children to keep them from being at risk of being trafficked.
Come and do some Christmas shopping if you’re in the Houston area! E-mail Kelli to find out about the time and location, or click here to do some shopping online. Don’t forget to pick “Kelli’s Christmas Shopping Party” at checkout!
This weekend my daughter and I went on a little getaway. Among other things we did our nails in the hotel room and then went to Charming Charlie to take pictures with some nice accessories that would highlight the nails.
Here’s my favorite shot of my Mint Green Chevron Nails, it almost looks Christmassy to me!
Mint Green Chevron Jamberry Nail Wraps
Speaking of Christmas: Jamberry products make wonderful gifts!
- For the person who has not tried Jamberry: Get them a sheet of nail wraps!
- For the person who just started using Jamberry and loves it: get them a mini heater and an application kit!
- For the Jamberry Addict: get the a subscription to Stylebox by Jamberry or a gift certificate, so they can shop!
- For the person you just need something small for: put a half sheet in a mason jar, along with a file, a cuticle pusher, application instructions and some tissue paper, top with a bow, and VOILA!
I will be posting pictures of this latest idea as soon as I make my teacher gifts for this year.
UPDATE: Here’s the post about the gift Jars: Jamberry Christmas Gift Jars
Well, I finally did it: I gave my other daughter (16 months old) her first “pedicure”, using scraps of Teal Mini Polka from some leftover sample sheets.
Instead of following the regular application instructions, I just stuck them on and trimmed the edge AND her nails with clippers. Then I activated the adhesive with a warm rice bag.

Today’s mani (and pedi, the 6 weeks are up!) is done using the August hostess exclusive and an accent nail with nail polish.
August Hostess Exclusive, so pretty!
We were gone a long time this summer, and so I did a couple of manis in between not worth posting, because it was the same ol’ LOTUS (it is my favorite wrap so far) and SHEET MUSIC mostly.
I also figured out that manis done with a gas stove don’t last as long. And also it seemed a little dangerous as I was doing it. You should really use a Jamberry mini heater, either the old one, or the new one. Or a hairdryer.
Ok, on to today’s mani: TEAL SPARKLE with PUNCHY PUFF accent nail.
UPDATE: Teal Sparkle was discontinued at the end of August. I feel like JADED is a pretty good replacement for it.
Teal Sparkle and Punchy Puff accent nail
Hello big wide world on the internet!
The reason for this blog’s existence is that I have become an Independent Consultant for Jamberry Nails recently! Selling any type of beauty supplies is also something I’d never thought I would do, along with blogging.
BUT, Jamberry Nails has really changed my life. For one thing, I always love how my nails look. Can you say that about yourself?! I have many problems in this life, but my nails aren’t one of them!
So without further ado, I am just going to start sharing my manicures as I do them, which is every 10 days or so, because that’s how long a Jamberry mani lasts!!
This is LOTUS with a PUNCHY PUFF accent nail.
