Summery Samples

Hello! Here is today's summery jamicure using two free sample wraps. It is certainly much brighter and more cheerful than the weather outside by a mile!

The wraps featured here are called Sorbet and Sweet Surprise. I have combined them with my own nail varnish that I made from scratch (it's pinker in real life!)

A word about the samples. They are smaller than the wraps you get when you order a set. Here's a pic that I took last night to give you a better idea of the scale (the gorgeous design on the right is called Fractal). It's not the most glam photo ever, as I took it against the background of my daughter's chemistry book, but you get the idea!

If you are in the U.K. and fancy having a go yourself then please do contact me with your address here. You can apply your samples using a hairdryer and I will send you full instructions.

Join the Jam Squad!

The best thing about Jamberry (apart from the great nail wraps!) is being part of a great team. I have already met lots of wonderful friends through Jamberry and it's only early days here! It is a vibrant community of very different people who just love the creativity and self-expression of Jamberry. There is so much friendly support available - you never feel on your own!

There is also a super incentive if you sign up as a Jamberry Consultant during July - a beautiful exclusive nail wrap. I love those gorgeous summery colours (even if the weather isn't exactly playing ball!)

Would you like to join us? You can sign up here. Please contact me if you have any questions or would just like to have a chat about the Jamberry opportunity. April x

Here are the gorgeous Geo French Twist wraps!

Have a great weekend! April x

Clear Wraps

I love clear wraps just as they are, but they also look great over coloured polish. I'm looking forward to the day when we get the Jamberry lacquers, but until then I have used my own nail polish that I made myself (Lantern Lily - Imperial Grape). I've paired it here with Granada as the accent wrap. I hope you like it! April x

Football Fever

I'm very excited about tonight's kick-off, but did you know that you can customise your nails to show your support too? The first mixed mani set is called Striker and the second one is called Soccer. There's no England flag, but you can show your support for England, Wales and Northern Ireland (sadly no Scotland team this time). If you are worried that we may exit at the group stage, can I suggest a couple of accent nails rather than the whole hog? But if the whole hog is more your thing,  have a look at this fantastic jamicure (thank you, Stephanie Butters!)

I love it! Sporty related wraps can be found here. Don't forget we also have Wimbledon to look forward to (we have the fabulous Match Point jams) All kinds of flag wraps are here.

At the moment I also have an exciting give-away for you. If you order three wraps and get a fourth free, I will also send you a free pedi pack, so you can have flip-flop ready toe nails! Have a great weekend, April x

Pamper Evening

Hello! Here are some photos from my first vendor event - a charity pamper evening in aid of Guide Dogs that was held at Hope Farm Methodist Church in Ellesmere Port. It was a lovely evening with a great range of local businesses offering beauty treatments and products. Guests applied wraps and lots of lovely cake was eaten! I am very much looking forward to the next one.

Another event coming up is the Summer Fair at Birkenhead High School Academy on Saturday, 25th June at 11am. Do come and say hello! April x

Today's jamicure is a combo of one of my favourite wraps - Timeless (a lovely floral design in sepia tones) with a solid colour - Dove Grey. I think my photo makes the Dove Grey look a little purple perhaps, but in reality it is a very beautiful, subtle grey. I love it!

Floral Fusion

May's exclusive wrap is simply stunning! As I look out on yet another cold, grey and wet Bank Holiday weekend, I think these jams would be perfect. At least you can have pretty spring flowers on your fingers, if nowhere else!

 I also love the suggestions for wraps you could combine with Floral Fusion. Don't forget there is always a 'Buy Three, get one free' offer at Jamberry. You can get all the wraps above for only £45 plus £2.99 p&p.  That would definitely put a spring in your step!

Have a wonderful Bank Holiday weekend! April x

A Tropical Jamicure

Ok, so flip flop season wasn't imminent after all. After some lovely weather it's back to grey skies and rain. Time for a tropical jamicure instead! This combo is Kingston with Diamond Dust Sparkle. I love Kingston - the design combines tropical blossoms with subtle silver and white stripes in a satin finish. I think it complements the lovely silver glitter of Diamond Dust Sparkle perfectly. What do you think?

If you would like to have nails that remind you of warmer days, then please visit my website Lily Leaf Nails. A jamicure is a much cheaper alternative to jetting off somewhere exotic! April x

Country Manor

Hello! I hope you have had a good weekend. I'd like to share one of my favourite Jamberry wraps with you - Country Manor. It has a matte finish with a gorgeous floral design in shades of pink. I love it! Here is my latest jamicure:

It's another mixed mani - including Country Manor along with Blushing Floral and Beverly Hills. My jams have survived a feeding frenzy today, as I got the wonderful opportunity to hand-feed some meerkats!

If you would like to try these lovely wraps for yourself, please visit my website at Lily Leaf Nails.

So what are Jamberry Nail Wraps?

They are vinyl wraps that are pressure and heat-activated to adhere to your nails. When they are properly applied they can last up to two weeks (on toe nails up to four!) There's no drying involved or unpleasant chemical smells. They are non-toxic and 5-Free (Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, or Camphor)

They are easy to apply at home and you have the fun of choosing from over 300 designs to suit your individual style. I love them! They are £15 per sheet and when you buy three, you get one free!

For my jamicure above I chose Disoriented, Flapper and Blushing Floral. This time I had my mini heater and it was a lot quicker and easier!

Contact me via my website and I will send you a free sample so you can have a go yourself. April x

    Sample Jams

    Hello and a happy Monday to you! My first encounter with Jamberry nail wraps was a free sample like the ones above. Would you like one? Just contact me via my website! 
    So this was my first attempt - not too shabby! The wraps are heat and pressure activated. As I didn't have my wonderful Jamberry mini heater at that point, I used a hair dryer. It worked ok, but I blew bits of cotton wool over the table and I did realise that when I got my heater I felt a lot more in control of the application process.

    There are three step by step videos on my website that cover application, removal and tips & tricks. The last one is really useful. Nails vary from flat to curved, but there is lots of advice on finding an application technique that suits you.

    I hope you feel inspired to have a go yourself! Let me know if you would like a free, no-obligation to buy sample! April x

    Sunday, 10 April 2016

    Hello and a very warm welcome to my new blog! I am very excited that Jamberry have launched in the U.K. I first came across their lovely nail wraps a while ago and breathed a wistful sigh when I realised that they were a  U.S. based company. I was so thrilled when I found out that they were coming to these shores.

    I very much hope that you will love Jamberry's super nail products as much as I do. You can find my website here. I will be blogging about my Jamberry journey and I hope you will join me! April x
