[Review] Jamberry Nail Shield Black and White Houndstooth

Herro~

I bring you another review!
A dew days ago I singed up for a sample of Jamberry Nails! Basically, it's similar to all those other nail "sheets" that you peel off and apply to your nails.
They had a few designs for your to choose from and I ended up getting this one~
The Black and White Houndstooth which retails for $15 for a whole set which does about 2-3 sets of nails.

Jamberry Nails has a GIANT selection. Here is a catalog they sent with the samples.


Among my favorites were these two!

Turtles and pink butterflies! (Pictures taken directly from the site) Both of them are super cute and would make amazing accent nails!

In the sample you get two small sheets which covers about 4 nails depending on how wide/long your nails are. Sometimes you get two of the same one, sometimes you get two separate ones. The process to putting them on is super easy! 

You'll need~

1. A hair blower/dryer
2. The samples of course!
3. A nail file
4. Either nail clippers of small scissors to cut the product

Directions:

"Jamberry Nail Shields are designed to be easily applied in a salon or at home.

Step 1: Clean nails with nail polish remover or alcohol. (Clean, oil free nails are one of the most important steps of the application)

Step 2: Cut and file nails to desired length and shape.

Step 3: Buff top of the nail and push back cuticle.

Step 4: Match nail (finger or toe) to the nail shield that best fits.

Step 5: Peel off nail shield and warm with a blow-dryer 10-15 seconds or until soft and flexible.

Step 6: When warm, press the shield onto the nail.  Apply firm pressure around edges to adhere the shield to the nail.  Use rubber cuticle pusher to seal the shield around the cuticle.
Step 7:  Trim the top with scissors and file off remaining shield using a downward motion to remove excess.
Step 8: Apply heat and pressure to the shield again until it is sealed to the nail. (Repeating this step several times helps create a tight seal to the nail surface and increases wear time)
Optional  Step 9: For active users you can add a small amount of nail glue to the free edge to better seal the nail shield. 
How to remove:
There are 2 removal options for Jamberry Nail Shields. For Nail Shields that have been worn for more than 10 days we recommend following the Gentle Removal Process.
Quick Removal Process: Heat the shields with a blowdryer for 15 seconds. Then break the seal by getting under the edge of the shield with your opposite thumb nail. Slowly peel the shield from side to side. If the Nail Shields are not peeling easily or the adhesive is still bonded to the nail bed then follow the Gentle Removal Process.
Gentle Removal Process: Soak the Nail Shields in nail polish remover for 20-30 seconds and gently rub them off. Soaking will break down the adhesive bond and allow them to easily slide of the nail bed. "



This little thing covers two nails! :O


I chose to just use the houndstooth one as an accent nail on my ring fingers while I gave the rest of my nails a black french tip with glitter! 8D
The directions are pretty straight forward and hard to mess up and it's not hard to just repeal off if you mess up!The product was pretty easy to use and, as the directions stated, I warmed up the sheet before I placed it on my nail so it was very easy to mold to my nail. The sheet that I received was  a tad big for my ring, pointer, pinky and middle fingers but too small for my thumb so I had to deal.


I definitely think you'd be getting a lot for your money at $15 a set since each oval can cover around 2 nails and they say they give you 2-4 sets!
If you use them on all of your nails you obviously won't be getting as good of a deal as you would if you do just accents of course but I think patterns like this are better in small quantities. 




Pros:
Easy to use
Decently Quick
No nail polish smell
Quick patterns without the mess


Cons:
May not perfectly fit all nails
Can't file down the ends perfectly all the time
Can be seen as expensive for people who buy solid colors
Not for people who only like solid colors
