Next month, I will officially have been an ATLien for two years. Although, one can argue that I wasn’t really official until I got my GA drivers license (December 2014). One of the things I love about this city is there is always something to do. However, sometimes you just need a girls night in with some wine/beer and ice cream, or if you’re like the Palmetto Peaches, sometimes you combine the two and treat yourself to Frozen Pints — the Honey IPA is my personal favorite.
For a recent girls night in, we decided to a little jammin’ with Jamberry Nail Wraps, a DIY, at-home application, vinyl nail product. Jamberry nail wraps last up to two weeks on fingers and six weeks on toes. They have over 350 designs that won’t chip and require no drying time.
My good friend and fellow Seminole, Katie, is a Jamberry Nails Independent Consultant, and provided Ace and I each a set of nail wraps to try. I opted for Mixed Signals (left) and Ace chose Over It (right).
How cool are they? While I consider myself pretty crafty, my nail painting process goes something like this:
- Look at nails in horror.
- Decide whether or not to use a base coat (or if I have time/patience).
- Apply one coat before bed. Try to sleep with my hands hanging off the bed.
- Wake up in the morning to find nail polish on my face and sheets.
- Try to fix all the nails I messed up while sleeping with a 2nd coat, all while eating grits and watching the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on my DVR.
- End up with 2 -3 super thick and janky looking nails.
All things considered, this was substantially easier with a much better outcome. To apply you just need: rubbing alcohol, a nail file, manicure scissors (we used some regular scissors), a cuticle pusher (we suck at directions and didn’t use it) and a hair dryer. These are great anytime, but I forsee myself ordering them for vacations or busy weeks when I can’t paint my nails, and need them to still look nice.
To celebrate the one week-a-versary of our launch, The Palmetto Peaches and Katie are giving away a set of Jamberry Nail wraps to one of our readers. Find a pair you like or give them as a gift to your friend/ significant other. Contest instructions are below:
