So, I was watching Today with Kathie Lee & Hoda (don’t judge!) when I happened to catch a beauty segment. My ears perked up when I heard them talking about create-your-own nail strips. Amazing idea, right? Designing your own nail polish strips gets at the heart of every creative, DIY type. And that includes me.
So, I quickly looked through all the pictures of my son’s artwork on Flickr. I found this gem, that I thought would be perfect for springtime.
Then I visited the Jamberry Nails site and found their Nail Art Studio. I found it to be pretty user-friendly but if you get stuck, there is a handy step-by-step video to help create your custom nails.
Now, I’m not going to lie, waiting for them to arrive was the hardest part. It wasn’t fast but there may have been an address mis-communication on my part. Not sure who is to blame, but it took a while to get my custom nails.
Anyhow, they finally arrived and they look great! They are pretty true to my design and there seem to be plenty of sizes to fit a wide range of nails.
The detailed instructions on the back of the package were simple to follow and application was much easier than I expected.
I love the look of these appliques and how fun to wear my son’s artwork on my nails! I can imagine designing my own nails again for a special event or even as a gift.
Don’t fret if you aren’t the DIY type! Jamberry also offers a lot of pretty designs that are ready to go.
