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".
