Anyone who knows me personally knows that I basically look like a homeless person on a daily basis. I have 3 kids under 7, a husband who works long hours, and family and friends that live 1,000 miles away. I'm exhausted. All. The. Time. To say that I don't have time to take care of myself or do something nice for myself isn't completely accurate. I'm sure I could MAKE time, but I just don't have the ENERGY to "pamper" myself. And by "pamper", I mean basic human rights like bathing more than once a week or brushing my hair. So doing my nails is absolutely out of the question, even though I love the way a manicure looks and makes me feel. And have you seen all the fabulous nail art on Pinterest these days?? That's definitely out of the question. Too much time/money/effort that only ends up lasting a day or two anyway. But thanks to my friend Cassie, I have discovered Jamberry Nails. Heat activated vinyl nail wraps that come in hundreds of colors and patterns and finishes. It took literally only a few seconds to apply my first two wraps. Then I did what any other former girly girl turned worn out mom with an obsessive personality would do. I joined the company before I sent my husband into bankruptcy! Because, seriously, look at the wraps and tell me you don't need all of them. Because I sure do.
So now I'm sharing it with you. Not because I'm an expert (I'm not) or that I love being a salesman (I don't). But because the GIRL in me, who loves to look and feel pretty, (the girl I didn't "let go" when I became a mom, she was dragged kicking and screaming to the back of a closet some where) is finally starting to peek through again. And I thought if something as simple as pretty (and effortless!!) nails can make such a huge difference in my day, then you all need to know about it too.
I still look like I've been hit by a truck (baby steps), but at least my nails look fabulous! If you want your nails to look fabulous too, or if you just want to help support my own nail wrap habit, check out my shop. nutmeg.jamberrynails.net
