Happy 4th of July! As I am waiting for Spangenbaby to make his appearance I thought it’d be fun to mix it up a bit and have a little party! A Jamberry Nail Wrap Party + Giveaway! How does that sound?!
Confession: I am not a nail person. I bite mine (horrible habit I know), I pick at the skin on the sides of my nails, and my nails just plain break and are hard to grow! HOWEVER…those lovely prenatal vitamins and pregnancy hormones have my nails looking and feeling fabulous so I had to jump on the Jamberry bandwagon and I am so happy I did! I am a believer! I hate painting my nails because 1. I suck at anything left handed and 2. They chip and peel so fast!
My friend hosted a Facebook Party and I started out slow…of all the awesome selections of nail wraps…I chose BASEBALL ones! (I bought these myself, I was not given any!) Ha….it only figures I am having my THIRD BOY! OK so I chose Curve Ball and Red Sparkle. At least I added some glitter right!? I was so impressed! I offered to host my own party and I am inviting you!
Want to know how they work? They are really easy to apply. I did it in a matter of minutes!
- I trimmed and shaped my nails
- I wiped down my nails with rubbing alcohol
- I matched the size of the Jamberry with my nail and cut the wrap in half
- I heated the Jamberry with my hair dryer and then smoothed it out on my nail pressing firmly
- I trimmed the wrap and used a file to shape to my nail.
- I used a little orange stick to make sure all the edges were securely adhered to my nails.
They lasted more than 2 weeks! Here is a picture of them on week 1 and week 2.5. They still look fabulous you can just see my nail growth!
Candy Chevron | Punchy Puff | Watermelon
They even have sorority wraps, Sports & Hobbies and tons of French tips! Pair the wraps with polish or wrap all your nails! Mix and match and they even have ones for your little people’s fingers and toes!
New this month is this Stylebox by Jamberry! You will have to head over to the Facebook Group to get all the juicy details on this amazing box delivered right to your door each month with tons of Jamberry goodness inside! Exclusive designs only for Stylebox members!
If you are interested in having a little Facebook party with me, I am inviting you to head over to my party page and join in the fun! It’s no pressure, low-key, fun place to talk nails and show off our Jamicures! You can ask questions, simply look around or feel free to share your favorite wrap styles!

As you are all mostly aware…#3 is on his way in July. Spangenbaby, as I refer to him now (because he has no real name yet!) is a true labor of love. We waited a long time for him to decide to take up camp in my belly.
I took for granted how easily Michael and Ryan came to be ours. It was a rocky road to get to #3, but he is 34 weeks along and likes to pretend he is a ninja in my belly working to break his way free! He likes to hold dance parties in utero at early morning hours (a throw back to my college days I am sure) and he prefers to eat strawberries all the live long day. He does NOT like to be squished, so all those maternity shorts that go over the belly…he’s not having any part of that! Nor does he like when his big brother Ryan decides my belly is the perfect pillow! He opens up with his own rendition of a number from River Dance to annoy is big brother enough that he moves to a real pillow.
He also demands sno-cones (shaved ice). Like all the time. <—I may or may not also partially pass my wants for these off as his wants but I am sure he is okay with this agreement we have as long as I keep putting strawberries on everything! I mean, I have been neglecting sushi and booze for some time for this kid…he can certainly take one for the team and agree to me blaming him for wanting shaved ice!
I also feel like he should be celebrated more. I talked about that here when I threw a Gender Reveal Party for Spangenbaby. Why does only the first kid get a party? (shower). Why then do you only get a sprinkle (I think that’s what they are calling it these days) if you are having an opposite sex baby? Why can’t we celebrate ALL babies with a party? I am going to start something here my friends! You just wait and see!
Sweet Susan of Freshly Picked is helping me celebrate this little guy! Do you know Susan? Did you watch her on Shark Tank? That’s right, she totally dominated Shark Tank and I have had the privilege of actually hanging out with her in real life at some blogging conferences this past year. She is kind of awesome! If you don’t know her you might want to meander on over to Freshly-Picked.com and check out these amazingly adorable moccasins she makes for your little’s feet! (Psst…also check out her brand new line of FABULOUS Bags!)
This past weekend I attended SNAP! Conference and I had such an amazing time! While I was gone I whipped up this “I’m Bored Jar” to help my husband find things to do for the boys! It was super easy to make and took no time at all! This might be great for the summer…
