    Ok, decided to team some wraps with nail polish this time, mainly because my jammies never seem to last long and I'm fed up with wasting them all up so fast!
    Here is my super quickie jamicure...totally random, indecisive mood tonight! My fave are the pink/white stripes.
    I don't like the big gap on my right thumb though 😣

I got heaps of compliments and they held my nails together for a whole week (thin nails so 2-3 usually rip to the quick every week. I just put on some Sally Hansen ones and am very unimpressed. Much harder to put on, have folds in them that I can't get out and pretty much just look like a dodgy nail polish job.

    So if you have used either of these, is Jamberry more like the Nail Rock except you need heat to apply?
    I'd never heard of these so did a quick google search for Nail Rock and the youtube application tutorial says you apply heat to them, which is the same as the Jamberry process. Did you not do that when you used them?
    I'd be interested in trying them, because as much as I LOVE the Jams, I have lots of issues with them lifting at the edges after only a couple of days. I've tried every trick in the book!

    No I didn't use heat. The instructions said if it was cold to warm between your hands first but it was a 30+ day! They saw me out a week, which is longer than any nail polish I've ever tried. They could have gone a bit longer but I'm a picker, so once one bit lifted I kept picking at it!! They don't have much of a range though, all very metallic, animal, in your face. Hence why looking at Jams as an option.

    I agree, I had a look through their designs and you're right - I'll definitely be sticking with my Jams. I am a picker, too! I need to not do that... 😳

    I've found Nail Rock are thicker then Jamberry and they didn't last for me.

    Ah ok, see I actually liked how thick they are as my own nails are so thin so it stopped them tearing. Do you peel Jamberry off when you're done as well?

    No definitely don't peel jams off @Stretched. I find the recommended removal method really quick and easy:
    * Pick up edges of wrap to break seal
    * soak in nail polish remover or coconut oil for 20-30 seconds
    * with a cuticle pusher, gently work the wrap off from one side to the other, it should slide off, if not dip the cuticle pusher in more remover or oil as you go
    * clean off any residual adhesive (I use more remover).

    This takes all of 5 minutes! So quick.

    I love that jams make my nails feel protected. I haven't tried other brands though.

    See I peeled mine off after two weeks and then just used nail polish remover to get rid of the residue and my nails are perfectly fine.

    I also didn't put them on the right way... I stuck them on... Then heated with a hair dryer then filed away the excess.

    They lasted two weeks and it was very simple. Maybe I'm missing something??

    Mine don't always leave any residue, sometimes they have such a good seal on the nail that they will take the top layer of your nail with it if you peel it. That's why they recommend the heat and oil to help release it without damage.

    And there's nothing wrong with applying that way at all. Lots of different methods for what suits different people.
