Some of you may remember my post about an easy way to paint your own french tips.  Unfortunately, those babies didn’t last more than a couple of days.  Here’s the comparison after a week.

Right after my nails had started chipping, my friend Sylvia, who is a Jamberry consultant, offered me a sheet of Jamberrys in exchange for a review.  I jumped on the opportunity to compare their french tips to polish.  Here’s the comparison.
As you can tell, they lasted much longer than polish.  There was a very minimal amount of ware, but I was still getting just as much compliments the second week as I was the first.

My thoughts on Jamberry French Tips

My first thought was that I wish I had had this set on when I got married.  They looked so elegant, and yet natural in a way that acrylic nails never do.
This was my first time using Jamberry and I honestly think I choose the hardest pattern to apply.  Because I am very picky about where the french tip started and ensuring that the angle of the tip is even, it took me a really long time to apply them.  
I added a second Jamberry pattern on my index fingers and since it was just lace, it went on super fast.  I’m sure almost every other pattern will be a super fast application as they don’t have the placing requirement that french tips do.  
Though it looked great, I wouldn’t strongly recommend layering two Jamberrys on top of one another because it made it more prone to lifting.
I was really impressed with how easy they were to apply.  I also loved that they lasted so long without the damage that I get with acrylic.  I will definitely be using these again.
