Nail Wraps are great….albeit a bit fiddly, if you practice, they become easier to do!
More recently, Jamberry released a new product called ‘Skinnies’. Skinnies are designed to be more for short-term wear and something that you can apply when you’re in a bit more of a hurry! They are easy to apply…very easy…in fact when I had applied mine, albeit just an accent nail, I posted photos to the Facebook group in amazement as to how easy they were to apply as I was so impressed!!
The sheet comes with numbered Skinnies in various sizes and they look like nail stickers with a little tab to lift them with. To apply (to clean nails), when you’ve selected the appropriate size (of which Jamberry suggest to err on the side of caution and choose one a little smaller to avoid overlapping as they won’t then seal to the nail and could result in lifting) using the tab, place the Skinnies on the nail and smooth it down using fingertips. Then you simply use the included nail file in a downward direction to remove any excess material from the end of the nail. Simples!
The nail file literally slices off the overlapping piece so there are no odd edges at the end of the nail. It really is such a quick process! It’s much quicker of course than applying the traditional wraps, which as much as I loved those too, sometimes I really don’t have time for the whole heating process so these are ideal when you need to save time!
Removal is simple too. I removed mine this evening and using a cotton pad soaked in nail polish remover I held it on my nail and it came away quite easily leaving my nail in the same condition as before the application so there is no damage to my nail which is also great!
