8 Tricks and Tips for Applying Jamberry Nails

May 3, 2023

Probably every girl has already tried to apply Jamberry nail wraps, but the problem is not every girl can apply them correctly, so they end up feeling disappointed with their purchase and regret for wasted time. While I do not sell and promote Jamberry nail wraps (honestly, I have bad selling skills), I do love the benefits Jamberry wraps offer.

I have been using and experimenting with Jamberry nails for over year now, so I am ready to share some tips and tricks for applying nail wraps so that you could enjoy a trendy mani for longer. Remember, a big success always comes after ten failures. Feel free to experiment with these tips.

1 Alcohol wipes really do the trick

Skipping the Jamberry directions that advice to use alcohol wipes before applying the nail wraps is a huge mistake. Alcohol wipes ensure that the oils and dirt are off, and your nail beds are absolutely clean. In case, you do not have alcohol wipes, opt for a nail polish remover, or simply wash your hands with soap and water and dry them with a paper towel.

2 Take care of invisible cuticle

Invisible cuticle can make the wraps pucker at the base of the nail, so make sure you remove it before the applying Jams. Use a cuticle remover or a piece of lemon peel over your entire nail to get rid of any invisible cuticle.

3 Apply a strengthening base coat

If your nails are very oily, and alcohol wipes never help, consider applying a strengthening base coat to prevent lifting and puckering. Oily nail beds are hard to deal with so you will need to fix them before applying Jams.

4 Heat your wraps before applying

There are two methods of applying Jamberry nails. Some girls apply the wraps and only then heat them while others heat the wraps before and after application. I use the second method and pretty happy with the result. Give both methods a try to find out which one works best for you. I personally recommend heating the wraps before applying. Heat the wrap for 5-10 seconds, or until it becomes flexible.

5 Clip before you file

Many tutorials show that you can use an ordinary nail file to trim the wrap. Again, if it works for you, great, if not, then clip first. You will avoid icky edges and create a polished effect. Reheat and press down firmly all over once again to fix it. If you need to file off any tiny parts, use a glass or crystal file to get smoother tips.

6 Let them cool

Before you clip or file your almost ready nails, let them cool for a few minutes. When you clip and file right after you apply the wraps, you can destroy all your efforts in a second. Do not put your nails under cold running water. Wait patiently!

7 Fix the bubbles and wrinkles

The worst thing that happens when you apply the nail wraps is appearing of bubbles and wrinkles. Don’t try to fix them when the wraps are cool. Heat them for 3-5 seconds and use your fingers or a cuticle stick to push out any wrinkles and bubbles.

8 Do it late in the evening

Probably the best time to apply Jamberry nail wraps is late evening when you are more likely to do nothing. I never apply Jams before bedtime since there is a high risk of puckering. Whenever you apply Jamberry nail wraps, make sure they have enough time to set completely onto your nails.

The next time you invest in a set of Jamberry nail wraps, use these tips to get the best result possible. I love the nail wraps because it is an easy way to enjoy nail art without having any special skills. Plus, your Jamicure may last for two weeks, when done correctly.
