Jamberry Review and Giveaway

I was contacted by Shelley, a Jamberry rep to see if I wanted to try out a set of Jamberry nail shields, which are revolutionary new nail products that take the place of normal nail polish. When I agreed, she sent me a cuticle pusher, a file, two sheets of nail shields, alcohol wipes, and directions.

Jamberry Nail Shields are decorative vinyl that sticks to the nail via adhesive. Because they are not made from nail polish as some competing brands are, they last much longer and are much more durable. They can last up to 2 weeks on hands, 6 weeks on toes. Since they aren't polish, they require no drying time and do not chip or smudge. There are over 250 designs to choose from and each sheet comes with 18 shields and you can get 2-3 (or more!) uses per sheet, giving you a salon quality manicure that lasts for weeks.

I'm just going to put this right out there, when it comes to this kind of stuff (beauty products), I am very slow and I usually mess things up somehow and this product wasn't an exception. I mean I didn't even wear eye liner until I was 18 and still have issues getting it to look decent, so just because I had issue with this product doesn't mean someone else will.

 The directions are simple enough:

  • Clean nails
  • Cut and file nails to desired shape and length
  • Buff the top of your nail and push back cuticles
  • Match nail to appropriate sized shield
  • Peel off shield and warm with blow dryer for 10-15 seconds
  • When warm press onto nail, apply firm pressure around edges and use cuticle pusher to seal it around the cuticle
  • Trim the top with scissors and file off remaining shield using a downward motion
  • Apply heat and pressure to the shield again until it's sealed to the nail
It took me about 20 minutes to do all of my nails, but the end result wasn't pretty (I mean, from far away maybe). The only nails that ended up decent were my thumb nails, so I have no clue where I went wrong, but I DEFINITELY went wrong somewhere. For some reason the nail shields wouldn't lay flat on my nails, they ended up bunched up on one side or the other and would not flatten out. Then they kept pulling up on the tips, by day 3 I had to take them off, they were bothering me more then looking pretty.

When I emailed my rep she said:
"That usually happens when there isn't enough heat - you can heat the shields longer up against the blow dryer (I hold them with tweezers otherwise it gets too hot for me) until the shield has basically become really flexible and soft and folded over and then put them on. Once its on an if you still see bunches on the sides, you can try to pull it from the tip forward on the side where it is wrinkled and push down on it more as well. Basically I will reheat the shield while its on my nail, pull on it slightly from the excess that is still on the tip to stretch out where the wrinkle is, then push with another finger or cuticle pusher from the back of the nail to the tip along the side where the wrinkle is to the tip. Once or twice touching up like this usually gets rid of the wrinkles. This also can occur if the shield is too big and is touching the skin around the nail, but it most cases its from lack of heat."

This is what the results are supposed to look like:

She also gave me an application video to watch for extra help.

I have one sheet left (plus the extras from the last sheet), so I'll test them out again and see if I can get them any better (I'm hoping I will). If you have any questions or would like to see what Jamberry offers, check out Shelley's page.
As part of my review Shelley is allowing me to give away one sheet of Jamberry nail shields (winners choice) to a lucky fan. Use the rafflecopter form below to enter. 
Also if you want to order your own Jamberry nail shields visit www.shelley.jamberrynails.net and make sure to choose VT Freebie Girl as the associated party at checkout. Shelley will pick a winner from all those that purchased to get the hostess rewards (more free shields)

Shelly provided me with two sheets of Jamberry Nail Shields to review and one to giveaway at no charge. In no way did this alter my perception of this product. My views and opinions are my own

FeverAll Review and Giveaway


I consider myself lucky when it comes to my daughter's health. Since I breastfed her first year, she was never sick, but 4 months after I stopped it was like all the sicknesses she was immune to before came back with a vengeance, she was sick every few months! Once again lucky for me she LIKED medicine, she would suck it out of the syringe like it was chocolate milk, lol. This year my husband and I have been lucky once again, where as she hasn't been sick, just a slight fever here and there, but she has the complete opposite affinity towards medicine as she did last year, so giving her something to cool a fever is like trying to catch and pin down a greased pig, meaning near impossible. The last time I gave her some Tylenol, she closed her mouth and pushed it out with her tongue getting it all over the couch and in her hair; ah, terrible two's how I loath you!

When I was asked to write a review on FeverAll, I gladly accepted. Medicine is always good to have on hand and even though I haven't used it because my daughter is luckily not sick at them moment, I can still give you information on the product, so that if you are at a stage with your child where they won't take oral medication, even though they NEED it, there is an alternitive you can try. Read more about FeverAll below, I was very surprised with the number 1. and 4. reasons and enjoy the fact that it is premeasured, I have a HUGE fear of giving my daughter too much medication.

FeverAll comes in three different varities: infants (6mo-36mo), children's (3-6yr), and Jr. Strength (6-12yrs). With FeverAll® Acetaminophen Suppositories, you can help your child feel better, offering temporary pain relief, even when oral liquid acetaminophen won't go or stay down due to fussiness, vomiting, spitting up, or spitting out.

Use FeverAll to Temporarily Relieve Teething Pain

Teething! Lets put it this way...it sucks, it's a horrible time of developement, lol. Yes, it’s an exciting milestone worthy of a baby book mention, but it makes both parents and babies miserable. So, be prepared to help provide temporary relief for your little one’s teething pain, even as young as six months with FeverAll® Acetaminophen Suppositories. FeverAll® is an alternative to oral acetaminophen, for temporary pain relief and fever reduction, when oral pain medication won’t go or stay down (they are spitting it out or won’t let you near their mouth with the dropper): no fuss, no mess, just confident, accurate dosing for your child’s age every single time.


Why should you keep FeverAll® in you medicine cabinet, you ask? Four big reasons!
1. Benzocaine teething gels are a no-no. Earlier this year, the FDA advised against using teething medicine containing benzocaine commonly found in teething gels. Acetaminophen is safe when used as directed and is commonly recommended by pediatricians as a temporary pain reliever for teething.
2. As a parent, you know to expect the unexpected. With FeverAll®, you will be ready to temporarily relieve your infant’s or child’s pain and reduce fever, even when you are unable to get them to take liquid acetaminophen orally due to fussiness, vomiting, spitting up, or spitting out.
3. FeverAll® is trusted:It’s an Official Recommended Product of “Mommy MD Guides” (http://www.mommymdguides.com/), and parents and healthcare providers have relied on the accuracy and ease-of-use of FeverAll® for more than 30 years to temporarily relieve pain and reduce fever.
4. There’s nothing else like it: FeverAll® is the top national brand of acetaminophen in suppository form and FeverAll® Infants’ Strength (80 mg) is the ONLY acetaminophen suppository approved for infants as young as six months.

FeverAll® is available at major retailers and drugstores across the U.S., such as CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, and Walmart, for a suggested retail price of approximately $7.00 for a package of six suppositories.  Learn more about FeverAll®at www.FeverAll.com and find them on Facebook.

The company that asked me to write this review has also given me the opportunity to give my readers a chance to win a FeverAll® Infants’ Strength sample and a cool pack (The cool pack is fantastic, I love the one they sent me)!
