    So a friend has recently become a consultant and it's got me lusting after pretty pretty nails now!

    Just a question - is it worth buying the starter kit with the tools, etc, and a mini heater? Or can you get by with stuff you've got at home/cheaper from a chemist?

    You can get by with what you've got at home but I must say the heater is incredible so if it's in the budget definitely recommend adding those to your order. Makes it so much easier, and the heater is so quiet.

    Default Jamberry Wraps

    Yeah I have only just ordered a heater last night; I have been using my hair dryer without issue.
    I would definitely invest in a starter kit though- the buffer and the good scissors are worth it alone.
    I ran out of alcohol wipes after 1 mani and 1 pedi, and have just used vodka on a cotton ball and that works fine.

    Eta: my consultant was saying last night that the Gatsby wrap is a new type with the metallic type base and then the white matte overlay and is very sensitive and needs just the right amount of heat otherwise the layers start to split. She said most people who haven't got a mini heater have trouble with it, so there ya go! Just another reason I suppose!

    The mini heater is the perfect amount of heat for the wraps. It's super quiet! I do my manis whilst my daughter is in bed so I can let them go overnight before submerging them in any type of water and the heater is so quiet it'll never wake her. Having two hands free to apply is also great.

    The application kit has all the tools you need to apply the wraps.

    These two things you can go without but it makes life easier if you have them! If your friend is a consultant, consider hosting a party to get these items with the hostess rewards!

    The heat that a hair straightener gives off, is a perfect heat. Everything else can absolutely be a generic brand.

    Has anyone seen the NYE wraps? Glow in the dark! They look nice, but I'm not sure I would want glowing nails.. I can just imagine going in to settle DD in the middle of the night... and freaking her out!

    My friend had the ghosts at Halloween and I asked her if she scared herself in the dark and she said no lol. I'm going to order both, can't decide which I like.

    It didn't matter anyway since they sold out within hours. And since the demand is that high, I can't see myself being quick enough to get any of the new release anyway. Although SIL is very keen to try them!
