Self Date Sunday: Jamberry Nail Wraps

Jamberry nail wraps in black and white graphic prints #beautyblogger

Y’all know I’m a sucker for a graphic mani. When I was approached to try out Jamberry’s stylish nail wraps I jumped at the opportunity. Armed with samples I played around with them with family and friends, and really fell in love with them. Jamberry is such an easy way to add a pop of nail art to your week with minimal effort!

While some people choose to get a full set of all one print, I’m a fan of spontaneity. Armed with a few multi packs I picked out some favorites, got some clean and fresh nails prepped (cleaned, buffed, etc), and began the process. It’s suggested that you warm the nail strip with a hair dryer, though I’ve found it works fine without, though sticks better with. Up2U! I adhered my black and white styles to my chosen fingers, holding it into place for 90 seconds to make sure it sticks, then clipping off the excess around the end of your nail. Continue on as many fingers as you like; I chose two per hand, and painted the rest black, keeping with the theme.

Voila. Less than two minutes (or 20 if you do a full set) to gorgeous graphic nails without a salon or painstaking hours of attempting to draw designs.

Self Date Sunday : Triangle Mani

Blue hued fall nails with Essie and Sally Hansen

I have been on the hunt for the perfect navy hued nail polish for months, nay years. So many I found were too blue, too gray, too pale… But alas, the God’s at Essie heard my telepathic plight and recently released just for me (or so I tell myself) “After School Boy Blazer”. Giddy ol’ me scooped that ish up SO FAST. But now, how to wear it? I could pull it off by itself but I wanted to go a bit further. I’m not one to be content with bare boned basics. I decided to play off the Navy as a New Neutral with some trending baby blue (Sally Hansen’s “Barracuda”). Together, a match made in a blue heaven.DIY Traingle detailed nails for fall

I started with the all over navy nails. Using cut up scotch tape I created diamonds to paint the Barracuda in. Be sure the base coat is 100% dry before putting the tape on or it will pull off. Next up, slather on some of your top color. I love that the scotch tape allows me to be a little messy, because let’s be real nobody is good at painting with their non-dominant hand.

Next: let them dry. Or, do as I do and take the dog to the park *thinking* your nails are dry and then come home and start all over again. Your call. Then, take pictures and share them with the internet.

Now take some vino or mimosa and indulge yourself in a little #selfdatesunday. Enjoy!
