Jamberry Nails Shields Now Available

Not exactly at EsthersNC.com but on my Jamberry website. Yes, I am officially a Jamberry Nails Consultant. The reason the nail shields are not in Esther’s Nail Center store because they wouldn’t let us sell them with other products so I have to have a separate store exclusively selling Jamberry Nails products.

Here’s my Jamberry store: esther.jamberrynails.net . Please check out my store because they have wonderful, wonderful nail designs.

What are Jamberry Nails?

Perhaps, many of you don’t know what Jamberry Nails are because they are quite new in the nail industry. Jamberry nail shields are like nail stickers to cover your nail. You don’t need any polish at all to use and the result is amazing and long-lasting if applied properly. Here’s what Jamberry said about them:

Jamberry Nail Shields are the newest way to accessorize your fingers and toes. Get your own unique,  professional nail design and say “Goodbye!” to nail polish. With today’s hottest celebrities already wearing unique nail designs, it’s quickly becoming a fashion “must have.”

This new nail treatment can be applied in just fifteen minutes at home. With over 150 styles available, these designer nail shields are made to last up to two weeks on fingers and six weeks on toes. Unlike traditional nail polish, they won’t chip and require no drying time. It’s so easy to achieve a professional, salon look at a fraction of  the cost.

The shields are a solid film covering that can be applied directly to the nail to achieve a look not found anywhere else. This special material is both pressure and heat activated to create a water tight bond to your nail. The shields are made in the USA, with no harsh chemicals and latex free.

Water Marbling Nail Art Technique

I know it’s been a while but I just found about this nail art technique recently (sorry for the slow update :-)): Water Marbling.

Water-Marbling Nail Art

With water-marbling, you use water and some nail polish with different colors to create the tie-dyed, marble nails. Check out this blog: My Smple Little Pleasure (where the photo comes from). She makes great posts about this nail art design plus video tutorial for every design she makes. That’s why I like it.

Simple July 4th Nail Designs

Hello! I hope everyone has fun this Fourth of July weekend. I have three U.S. Independence Day inspired nail designs for you. All three are of an easy difficulty level so everyone can wear something cute for the fourth.

I used these Nail Art polishes by Adorée to make the flag stripes design. I used the white to draw out the stripes, and the blue to make a clean tip line; I then layered over a coat of glitter polish on top of the blue tip to add a bit of glitter. These Nail Art polishes have long, thin striper brushes that are ideal for drawing out straight lines and stripes. These were sent to me by the always friendly Esther’s Nail Center.

For the third Fourth of July design, start with a white creme base using white nail polish, such as Adoree Pure White #150.

Draw out a red line near the tip of your nail. This “Red Eye” has a bit of a gold flash that I like, you can see it in the next picture.

Repeat the process on the rest of your nails.

Next, using blue, draw out a similar line below the red. This is a fairly quick nail design to do, even though you’re decorating every nail. It doesn’t take very long to make a stripe on each finger.

Easy stars and stripes!

Don’t forget to add topcoat to fully cover the pointy edges of the stars so they don’t catch on your clothing.

Thank you to Esther’s Nail Center for kindly sending me the three Nail Art by Adoree polishes I used in this post. They offer many different colors, some creme, some glitter and some with different colored flash like “Red Eye” shown here. They each cost $6 or can be purchased in bundles for a cheaper price.

Nail Art Tutorial: Starry Night Nails

French Manicure with Adoree

This design is of easy difficulty, and doesn’t take very long to apply. There are several different ways you can wear this Starry Night look, depending on the supplies you have available and the length of your nails. This is a cute look for going out in the evenings and it looks especially good on cool skin tone. Alternatively, you can substitute black nail polish for blue and still get the starry night look if you prefer something a little darker.

All this design entails is applying your blue nail polish, adhering your stars, and coating everything with a clear topcoat so it’s ideal if you’re just starting out with nail art. You will need two nail polishes to create this look, (as well as some stars which we will discuss later in this post.) Pictured are the Adorée’s “Ice Mist #237” and “Harbour Blue #162“.

French Manicure with Adoree

Begin by placing your French manicure guideline stickers. Gently rub the stickers against your nails to ensure there are no air bubbles that could lead to a smeared edge upon removal. Wrap the free-edge of the stickers around your fingertips to prevent them from getting caught in your wet polish while you wait for it to dry. Do not remove your guideline stickers until your colored tips are almost completely dry. Pictured is two coats of Adorée’s “Harbour Blue #162.” (Adorée nail polishes are formaldehyde, toluene, and DBP free like OPI and Zoya.) Choose a navy or dark blue for this manicure, as any light blue paired with stars won’t result in a nighttime-themed look.

Swipe on one coat of a glittery clear, or nude-tinted clear polish, something suited to French manicures. I prefer to use a glittery clear for this particular look as I think it adds to the star theme, but if you prefer you can use a traditional French manicure nude instead. Pictured is Adorée’s “Ice Mist #237” which contains very small pieces of blue, green and orange glitter. Using a glittery clear over colored tips is an easy way to turn a regular French manicure into something more interesting.

Coat one finger with your French manicure shade, and while your polish is still wet adhere your stars. Then coat your next finger, and attach your stars. Feel free to leave a few nails without any stars to keep this look from going overboard. What can you use as stars? Fortunately, star-shaped nail deco items are pretty easy to find. You can use star-shaped rhinestones like I have, or you can use star confetti which comes in many colors. If you can’t find star-shaped confetti, gemstones, try nail stickers.

You need not place stars on every finger, and it’s best if you don’t place them in identical spots in order to add variety. In general, it’s best to keep your stars to one or two per nail, and place them low to overlap the border of your French tip. Placing them there will draw more attention to them than if you were to set them near the top where your polish is clear.

As the final step to this look, seal in your stars with a clear topcoat.
