About Jamberry Nails

Founded by three sisters with distinct personal tastes, Jamberry Nails is a direct sales company that offers more than 300 styles of proprietary vinyl nail wraps in a variety of styles, from basic to bold. When compared to traditional nail polish, Jamberry claims that their nail wraps offer a simpler, more cost effective way of keeping your hands looking polished. As such, they claim to have started a “nail revolution.”

There’s no doubt that the nail care industry has grown in leaps and bounds over the last couple decades, and that thousands of individuals are passionate about creating unique designs that take hours to apply. But if you lead a hectic life and want these same custom looks without all the effort, do Jamberry Nails represent a viable solution? Let’s see where the facts lead us.

What are Jamberry Nail Wraps?

According to the Jamberry Nails website, they currently offer more than 300 different vinyl nail wraps that can be applied to your fingers and toes in the comfort of your own home, using only basic nail tools and a source of heat (e.g. hair dryer or Jamberry’s own heating tool). The company claims that anyone can apply and remove their nail wraps, which can then be manually filed to fit your specific nail shape.

Once they’re applied, Jamberry’s nail wraps are claimed to last up to 2 weeks for fingers and up to 4 weeks for toes (see more about this in the final section).

Jamberry Stylebox Program

Similar to other discovery commerce companies like Conscious Box and Wantable, Jamberry has recently launched their monthly Stylebox program, which provides customers with the ability to showcase their signature style in a very personal way. Each Jamberry Stylebox includes at least $30 of products that are only available to subscribers, in addition to a nail file, orange stick, and monthly style guide, all shipped directly to your door.

In order to begin your Stylebox program, you’ll need to take a quiz to find out your signature style, and then register for a plan that works for you.

The Jamberry Nails Opportunity

If you enjoy your Jamberry products, you can choose to promote them in one of two ways: as a host, or as an Independent Consultant.

As a host, you’ll hold a Jamberry “party” at the location of your choice, and invite an Independent Consultant to introduce Jamberry products to everyone in attendance. Because of your role as host, the company claims that you’ll gain access to exclusive wraps.

If you’re looking to earn money by selling Jamberry products, you can sign up as an Independent Consultant, which means that you’ll earn a commission based on each sale you make. However, in order to accomplish this, you’ll first need to sign up under an existing consultant, which you can locate by searching by name, email address, or zip code on the Jamberry website.

For a complete breakdown of your earnings potential as an Independent Consultant, be sure to read through Jamberry Nails’ compensation plan.

Jamberry Nails Pricing & Refund Policy

If purchased singularly, Jamberry nail wraps range between $15 and $17.50, which can be purchased through an Independent Consultant or directly through the company’s website. One regular sheet contains 18 nail wraps, while a Junior sheet contains 42 nail wraps.

The Jamberry Stylebox program costs $25 per month, although there is a 3-month minimum subscription billed up front.

If you’re interested in becoming a Jamberry Nails Independent Consultant, you’ll first need to purchase a starter kit, which costs $99 plus S&H.

Regardless of how you purchase your nail wraps, all Jamberry products come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee, less S&H charges. In order to begin the refund process, you’ll need to contact your local Independent Consultant, or Jamberry customer service at (801) 796- 2205.

If You’re Looking for Custom Nail Designs, are Jamberry Nails a Good Choice?

With all of this in mind, if you’re passionate about wearing a constantly changing array of nail designs, are Jamberry Nails a good choice? Perhaps, although you should keep the following in mind:

Customer Feedback

First, Jamberry Nails are very popular, which is good because it gives you the opportunity to learn about other customer’s experiences before purchasing. With this in mind, these nail wraps appear to have a mostly positive online reputation, although some of the most common complaints/feedback are:

  • That it will take some trial and error before you become proficient at applying the wraps. In other words, if you think that you’ll be able to throw them on at the last minute before heading off to an event, you may quickly become frustrated.
  • Although Jamberry wraps have a reputation for lasting longer than nail polish, it appears that most customers’ wraps last between 4-5 days, which is much shorter than the 2 weeks advertised by the company. However, it appears this can have a lot to do with how active you are, and even your specific body chemistry.
  • That you can damage your nails if you don’t soak the wraps before removing.
  • There have been numerous accusations that Jamberry wraps caused fungal growth between the nail and the wrap.
  • Many customers (including Independent Consultants) have cited very slow shipping times and high S&H charges. This might stem from the fact that if you order multiple sheets and one is out of stock/on back order, your entire order will be delayed.

The Harsh Reality of Being an Independent Consultant

While direct sales can represent an opportunity to make some extra money on the side or even replace you existing income altogether, keep in mind that the vast majority of Independent Consultants (whether with Jamberry Nails or other companies such as Amway or Herbalife) will never get their businesses off the ground. And for those that do, making real money over the long term is difficult. As a result, very few succeed.

With this in mind, based on numerous online reviews we read from previous Jamberry Nails Independent Consultants, it’s important that you’re assigned to a reputable existing Consultant who can help show you the ropes. If you don’t, you might become frustrated and find that Jamberry’s home office doesn’t provide the kind of support you need.

Bottom Line:

Jamberry Nails products seem to have a mostly positive online reputation, although you should keep in mind that applying the nail wraps is much more labor intensive than applying nail polish, so it may take some time for you to get it right.

    They are great if you take the time to put them on right!

    • Winthrop Harbor, Illinois,
    • May 5, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    Theses wraps are wonderful. Since wearing them I have stopped biting my nails, and they have grown longer and stronger! Mine stay on for over two weeks. Take the time do the work, and they stay!

    Nail prep is important. Soak your nails, push your cuticles back, and invisible cuticles, and use alcohol wipes to clean off. Apply the wrap to fit, press on heat, and press again to apply a top coat if needed! I swim with mine on and have no problem.

    Don't blame the company. I'm very new to using them and followed step by step and have had no problems. Customer for life!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Bad business practices

    I purchased a heater and three wraps. The heater was way too hot, and the wraps did not fit properly or stay on to the nail.

    I informed the consultant, and she worked with the company to get guidance on a return for a refund. I followed instructions and included products, receipt and return form, plus I tracked delivery of the product.

    When I didn't hear back, I asked my consultant for a phone number to inquire about the status and confirm that the company had the right reimbursement card. Two phone calls and over one hour later, I explaining how they should honor the return policy, plus logically, why would I return the items as instructed and not get reimbursed?

    I would have just kept if I was told I would get no refund for the heater. I did not get a full refund because they explained I opened and tried the products, and I did not qualify for first-time buyer refund because I went through a consultant. This did not make sense, seeing as how is a customer to know if the product works if they don't try it?

    I ended up, in fact, speaking with four different people explaining the steps I followed per the policy. The company offered 1/3 refund and 2/3 on gift code. I explained I would not use a gift code. The floor supervisor said to give it to the consultant to use.

    This company does not have good customer service as I believe the highest level floor supervisor had me on speaker phone with people commenting and laughing.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Super easy and long lasting

    • California ,
    • Jan 4, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I've been wearing Jamberry Nails for two years now. They are super easy, super fun, and last at least 12-14 days, if I don't switch them out sooner.

    I haven't had any of the fungus issues people are talking about, nor have I experienced chipping with their lacquers. In fact, I just removed a lacquer/wrap combo from my hands with such ease, even after wearing it for 13 days. Even my 12-year-old and 8-year-old can successfully apply the Jams. Oh and their gel system is GREAT!

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Terrible product

    • Calgary, AB,
    • Dec 19, 2016
    • Verified Reviewer

    I purchased a kit to get me started with Jamberry, bought the dryer and 3 sheets of nail wraps. I should have tried them first to make sure they worked with my nails, because after following the instructions and even getting a consultant to help me apply them they don't stay on my nails. Just takes one time for me to wash my hands and they lift right off. Nails are dry before and I've followed all the steps, tried multiple times and they just don't stay on. Really bummed I spent $85 on this product. Now I have a kit I'll never use. Spend your money on a manicure and skip this crap!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      Hi Elissa,

      I'm a Jamberry, independent consultant and I'm sorry you've had just a rough time! I have had a lot of success helping others with the application issue and would hate to think that you've wasted your money. I'd be more than happy to help you. Let me know if you're interested.

    Never again!

    • Idaho ,
    • Oct 13, 2016
    • Verified Reviewer

    I purchased Jamberry's nail lacquer that was ridiculously overpriced because my friend (who is a consultant) raved about Jamberry products.

    I applied the nail polish as soon as I received it because I was so excited to try it. That was around 2:00 PM. By the time I went to bed that night at 9:00 PM it was already peeling and chipping off my nails. And the worse part was that I had been sitting in front of the computer and TV most of the afternoon. It didn't even last 24 hours!

    I tried to contact the company and they said that it wasn't defective but I could return it because I didn't like it, but that they wouldn't refund my shipping because it wasn't defective.

    I also contacted my credit card company but they said they couldn't do anything because nail polish is considered a "consumable."

    I will never purchase anything from Jamberry again. Make sure you read reviews from people who are not consultants and do not sell the stuff. I will stick with my OPI nail polish, it's cheaper and lasts for weeks.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Heater does not last

    • California,
    • Sep 14, 2016
    • Verified Reviewer

    Warning! Hey everyone. the heater does not last. Mine broke after four months and Jamberry will not replace it.

    One of my friends had her heater stop working after six months. Horrible customer service. I love the product, will not use it if they do not stand by their product however.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Don't buy Stylebox

    • St Charles, IL,
    • Jul 15, 2016
    • Verified Reviewer

    I purchased Stylebox for one year and long before my subscription ended I notified the company that I would not continue once the one year obligation had ended. I was promised that it was taken care of. Now I continue to get notifications that my package has shipped and have to fight to get a refund. I have now had to get my credit card company involved. I will NEVER order from this company again.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    These are the next best thing to hit the market.

    • Casper, WY,
    • Jun 8, 2016
    • Verified Reviewer

    Let me start with, yes, I am a Jamberry consultant. I started just so I can get the jams at a discount and if people ask, I will help them. I am not doing this to promote my business, just for the love of jams. Yes, at first it can be time consuming to put them on. After 3 times I had it down and now can do it in 30 minutes. They look perfect, no smudges and no dry time.

    If you have a consultant show you or if you just watch some YouTube videos on correct application procedure, they will not come off. Mine lasted a minimum of 2 weeks and look great the entire time. No chipping or peeling like Polish.

    The whole secret is correct prep and heat. If you do them right you will be addicted and wear them all the time. They are the best things ever when applied correctly!

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Purchased a lot of these through a friend having an online party. I used these twice on my fingernail, and my nails are ruined. They are splitting and will not grow out properly. I really regret the money I wasted on these.

    Terrible for your nails

    • Asheville, NC,
    • Apr 3, 2016
    • Verified Reviewer

    I loved Jamberry when I tried the wraps -- super cute. BUT, they wrecked my nails. I tried several different removal methods, all involved soaking for some time and NONE worked. My nails are trashed. It has now been 3 months since I have used them and they are still not growing back.

    I was a skeptic

    • Feb 24, 2016
    • Verified Reviewer

    I saw Jamberry Nails everywhere, and I thought it was some kind of gimmick rip off beauty product.

    I was given a sample pack to try, and the consultant showed me how to apply the wraps. I can see how it can be hard, but having someone show me made a huge difference, it was so easy and quick! It took about 20 minutes altogether to get the beautiful half plain, half glitter design, something that would take a lot more time, effort, patience or money in a salon. They stayed on amazingly, and peeled off with no problems at the two week mark. I would 100% recommend this product. I think the marketing needs some work so that the product gets the kudos it deserves.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
