Illamasqua "Scarab" with a Jamberry accent

Hi there!

I have been having a super busy week. I feel like I can finally get to the computer and post about what makes me happy, and takes some of the edge off ...nails! Here's a nice vampy mani I did a few days ago with an accent nail using a Jamberry shield. This was my first time using Jamberry and an Illamasqua polish. I was able to score a few polishes from this higher end brand at a Sephora at JCPenney's; which normally retail for $14 each, on sale for only $7! Yay! Here's a quick pic...

Here I have on two coats of Illamasqua "Scarab", a glowing vampy red, with the lace Jamberry shield.
I found the application process of the Jamberry shield to be quite interesting. They require heat activation, so a blow dryer is needed in order for the adhesive element to work.Other than that, it's the same as applying any other nail sticker. If you look closely, you can see that I got a little bit of a wrinkle towards my cuticle. I might have rushed through the process a bit, which may be why it didn't come out perfect. One of my nail buddies, Shea, sent me a sample to review here on my blog. She is a Jamberry consultant (think Mary Kay, but for nail stickers), and a total sweetheart. Here is a link to her webpage: Have you given Jamberry a try? I am considering getting their basketball designs before the NBA playoffs are over. Talk to ya later!
