Jamberry Nail Wrap Review

The biggest challenge I’ve had so far with my complete switch to cruelty free cosmetics and household products has been finding a good nail wrap. Sadly, I’m still on the search despite the fact that I was able to review the Jamberry Nail Wraps this week. Jamberry nails are PETA approved, cruelty free and vegan which is great, but I wasn’t overly wowed by the application process or the feel of the nails when they were actually on. 

The kit comes with everything you could possibly need except for a hairdryer. Unlike other nail wraps I’ve used prior, these have a thicker feel to them which requires that you actually use a small blowdryer to make them pliable. 



The entire kit comes with the wraps, scissors (which I kept, heh), alcohol pads to prep the nails and two different cuticle sticks. The wooden one is used to prep the nail and the rubber is used to seal the nails.

Maybe I just wasn’t wild about the pattern I received, but the nail wraps didn’t last long on my hands. I found the sizes to be good (they offered a wide range of different sizes), but the feel of the nails was thick. I felt like my natural nails were “under pressure.” 

I can’t say that I would purchase Jamberry nail wraps any time in the near future. Until I find something comparable to my former nail wraps, I’ll still be on the search!

Have you ever tried Jamberry nail wraps? What did you think? Do you have any tips for making these nail wraps work better? 

Thouggh I didn’t have the best experience with these wraps, they were simply and easy to take off by breaking the seal with the included rubber cuticle stick.

  1. Oh, Jamberry. I actually had a free sample kit sent to me a while back (and when I say a while, I mean months ago… shamefully) and I never got around to trying them out, myself. I always like to form my own opinions and trials on things, but seeing them on someone close up… I would actually rather stick with the polish I have now until I find something else. I don’t think it’s anything I would be comfortable with if they make you feel like your nails are ‘under pressure’… that would weird me out!

  2. I never tried Jamberry nail wraps nor any sort of nail wraps for that matter. But from the sounds of it exerting some “pressure” on the nails, I’m not sure if I would want to try it. :/ I can see why some may prefer it because the design’s already premade, and the shape of the print is easier to control thanks to the scissors. At the end of the day though, I’ll stick with my traditional nail polish. :P

  3. I’ve only ever tried nail wraps a couple of times, but they’re not something I’ve really got on with. I felt like there was always too thick a layer on my nails. That’s probably just that the makes I tried weren’t great quality, but it’s something that puts me off anyway.

  4. I’ve never tried nail wraps at all. Mainly for the fact that I have child sized hands and they always look so big. I can’t even wear “adult” sized fake nails, I have to buy the child sized ones.
