Fresh Start

Since this is my first blog post, I wanted to start off fresh.  I have been an independent consultant for Jamberry since the end of August 2014.  I've been wearing wraps almost every day since then, except for a few days here and there when I waited in between manicures to nourish my nails.  I have always used the removal process of breaking the seals on my wraps, pouring nail polish remover on a cotton round, and using the round to peel up the wrap as I use part of it to run the remover under the wrap.  If I feel too much resistance, I use a new round with remover and continue.  A few times I pulled too fast and saw small white lines on my nails, but I have gotten pretty good at removing them so that hasn't happened in a long time.  Here is a picture of my nails after I removed my wraps tonight (not very good lighting in my bathroom).
They are still strong and are actually longer than before I started wearing wraps.  I think of the wraps as duct tape.  They hold everything together.  Before when I'd use my nails as tools for things like scraping a sticker off the dining room table (remember, I have 4 boys), I would usually split a nail or even break a tip off.  Now if I do that with a wrap on, my nails are ok.  Even if I do chip a piece on one of my nails, it doesn't break any further because the wrap is saving it.  Sometimes by using my nails as tools, I will pull the tips of the wraps up but I can just file the edge of the wrap down and it still looks good.  

So tonight I will put lotion on and let my nails remain naked, but tomorrow I will be giddy over all the possible Jamberry wrap combinations I can use.  One will become the winner to dress up my nails and make me smile each time I catch a glimpse of my new "Jamicure".
