Summer Nails

Last summer I was working on kicking my horrible nail biting habit so I was getting regular shellac (or gel) manicures. But between the cost of the manicure, plus a tip, and getting them done every 3-4 weeks, it was getting pricey. Although it ended up being worth it for me since I no longer bite my nails, my wallet was grateful when I stopped. But I was bummed to be back to plain nails all the time, and when I painted them myself they were chipped within two days. 
Enter nail stickers. I tried these ones from Jamberry last week and was instantly in love with them. Aside from the floral pattern being so fun and so on-trend, they were super easy to apply and have already lasted a week with only a little bit of wear at the tips of the nail (and that’s probably because I am really tough on my nails). The best part for me is that they last almost as long as shellac, and are reusable, and cost less! 
Their website has a zillion fun sticker choices to choose from (my floral ones are called Midway Floral and were last month’s Sister Style Exclusive) but I’m also loving this month’s Sister Style one, as well as this one and this one
They have full instructions on their website, but here’s a little step-by-step to show you just how easy it is!
Right now Jamberry is offering Buy 3, Get 1 Free, so snag yourself a few sheets that will last you all summer long!

    What is this pattern called? I love it and I don't see it on the site!

  3. Alison says:

    Nevermind I see the answer above! I'm clearly a careful reader 🙂

  4. Shelly Jones says:

    Super cute! I literally thought you were able to paint your nails that way! Pretty pretty!

  5. Monica says:

    Cute print! I have a horrible nail biting habit too. Painted nails never last around here.

  6. Sage Grayson says:

    So cute! I've been meaning to try nail stickers. My nail polish chips so fast because I'm hard on my nails too.

  7. Elizabeth says:

    There are so many cute designs! Thanks for sharing!

  8. Rachel says:

    Perfect timing! I was invited to a Jamberry party that is tonight. Glad to see that you like them.

    These are so cute! I tried a different brand and was impressed by how long they lasted. My nails always chip after two days too.

  11. This is probably what I need in my life! lol. I never paint my nails because I feel they are dirty with nail polish (weird, right) and end up chipping the paint off on purpose. This is pretty and seems simple to use. (Also a plus that it's reusable)

    Thanks for the post and happy Friday!

    Wow!! So pretty!!!

  13. Ms. O'Neill says:

    How do you know what size to order? (S, M, or L?) I can't find anything on their website.

  14. Kelley says:

    @ms- there's only 2 sizes, regular and jamberry juniors which is kid sizes. The regular has a sheet of different sizes to choose from to match your nail sizes!

  15. I tried nail stickers once and wasn't a fan, but this application looks different! I like the floral print to…may have to try those out!


    • I hadn't ever tried nail stickers before, but I've been really impressed with these! You should definitely try them out — I'm pretty sure regular nail polish isn't going to cut it anymore! Especially for a vacation or multiple day event, they're perfect because they won't get chipped on day one!

  16. Lindsay says:

    Those are fantastic! I stained my nails yellow with some awful polish and now have to constantly paint them until they grow out. I'll have to try these!

  17. says:

    These are absolutely fabulous! I wear a lot of black and neutrals, so this is a good way to springify my wardrobe a bit. 🙂

  18. Kat says:

    love them, I've tried sally hansen a few times and have really enjoyed stickers, one questions, how are they reusable? Are they different from other nail stickers?

    • When you want to take them off, you can heat them up and peel them off. Then you can heat them up again and re-stick them on! The only thing is that your nails would probably have to be shorter on the second use because the tips of mine have worn down.
