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.

    Never again!

    • Idaho ,
    • Oct 13, 2016

    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

    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

    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.

    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

    Beware

    • Slinger, WI,
    • May 23, 2016

    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.

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

    Terrible for your nails

    • Asheville, NC,
    • Apr 3, 2016

    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.

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

    I was a skeptic

    • Feb 24, 2016

    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

    Not worth it

    • Queensland, Australia,
    • Jan 2, 2016

    I paid $22 (AUD) for a sheet of wraps for my sister and I to share and have 'fun' doing our nails together. Well, an hour later of being frustrated and annoyed at these things, we finally had our nails wrapped and looking dodgy as well because you have to cut to the shape of your nail and "file" them down however the nail wraps. Don't file down at all otherwise they just go all weird and become messy looking.

    Anyways, they are supposed to last 2 week, supposedly. That next morning, two of the nails decided to fall off while washing my hands and the next day even more. The day after all had fallen off.

    Sorry but I am sticking to $2 nail polish I'm quite disappointed because of all the money I spent.

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

      I'm so sorry you had such a bad experience! It sounds like you weren't given good instructions about how to apply the wraps. I'd like to help if I can? Feel free to reply to this comment and I'll find a way to connect with you.

    Jamberry Nails

    This summer was when I was first introduced to Jamberry nails, or "Jams" as some people call them. My good friend had an online Facebook party that I "attended". I happen to win a few samples so decided to give them a try. I only did two accent fingers and used regular polish on the rest of them. I had a fishing trip coming up on the weekend so I figured it would be the perfect test. I applied them with a blow drier instead of the Jamberry heater. The application part took quite a while because it was my first time but it wasn't hard to do. Lets just say it looked like it was my first time too. They were by far not perfect and they ended up peeling off by the end of the weekend. The second time I tried them on all of my nails. This time it went a little fast and I feel like I got them to seal a little better also. They stayed on for almost 2 weeks. I put them on my toes towards the end of summer and they stayed on for almost 2 months. Awesome! I will probably be able to give more stars after I have more experience putting them on.

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

    Awful Customer Service

    I have bought a lot of Jamberry Nail Sheets. Love the product. Have spent over $200 on the product. They offer you one free when you buy three. I placed an order for 6 sheets and 2 free sheets. Everything was on my order when I submitted. When the order came, there were only 7 sheets. I contacted my consulate to see how this should be handled. She said she would contact them. They said that since the order had already been shipped there was nothing that they could do for me. Customer Service will make or break a company. This type of customer service will be the nail in their coffin. I will not order again.

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

      Hi Karen. I am am a Jamberry Independent Consultants and this doesn't sound like our customer service department. Was it over 45 days after your order was placed before customer service as contacted? I'd love to help make this right for you. Please email me at mandyoliviasmommy [at] yahoo.com. This is definitely not how we are supposed to treat our customers.
