Don’t Miss Out!!

With all the excitement of the Tracy Reese Collection and the Disney Collection by Jamberry that have been released in the past couple of weeks plus the fact that the brand new Spring 2016 Catalog will be launching in just 10 days or so, it is tempting to opt out of ordering any of the retiring wraps and instead, wait for the new catalog or choose something from one of the New Collections.  Well, I am here to tell you why you should NOT skip the Going, Going, Gone products!

24419636222_ff72506549_o

First of all, I need to tell you that in Jamberryland, when something is retired, that doesn’t mean that it is taking a break or that it is still there in some secret stash that we consultants can order from even if you as a customer can’t.  When Jamberry retires a wrap, that wrap is GONE! FOREVER!  NEVER TO BE SEEN AGAIN!  This is my third catalog change and I am here to tell you from experience, there is no worse feeling when it comes to nail wraps than to wake up on the first day of the NEW catalog and realize that you really DO want those wraps you talked yourself out of ordering yesterday before they retired.  Apparently, I am not the only one.  Every time, for the first week or two of the new catalog, the Consultant groups are full of posts from consultants looking to trade someone a new wrap for this now retired wrap or that one because a customer decided AFTER it was gone that she really DID want it after all.  Sometimes that wrap can be located, but most of the time it can’t.  Even if someone has it in their stash, that wrap is now retired so the person who has it is probably less likely to part with it.

Now, like I said, it can be tempting, especially in the last week or two before the New Catalog launches to think “Oh…I will just wait for the new stuff!”  BAD IDEA!!  Yeah, new stuff is exciting and fun, but the thing is, the NEW stuff will be around for at LEAST 6 months!  The retiring wraps, they are coming to the end of their time.  As I write this post, there are only about 10 days left to get the retiring wraps from the Fall catalog.  Think about that…10 DAYS vs. 6 MONTHS.  The other thing about the new catalog coming out is that it never seems to fail; every blessed time I have talked myself out of a retiring wrap, there is something in the new catalog that would go with that wrap PERFECTLY!  Of course, I end up kicking myself because I am too late to get it!

Then of course there are those wraps that are just favorites.  It is easy to tell yourself, “Oh…I don’t need to get another sheet of those! I still have a 1/2 sheet from last time!”  Trust me..if they are a favorite, STOCK UP!  Believe me, you will way sorrier if you don’t than you will be if you do!  Case in point, Black and White Skinny.  It is on the retiring list, but it is also my all time favorite Go To wrap for doing mixed mani’s.  Now, I have a sheet with just 1 wrap used…but you can bet I will be ordering at LEAST 1 more sheet!

Earlier I mentioned the release of the Disney Collection by Jamberry.  If you have any of those wraps on your Must Have list, I strongly urge you to take a look at the Going, Going, Gone category in my store with those in mind.  There are a lot of the retiring wraps that would go PERFECTLY with the Disney Collection by Jamberry wraps!  Take a look at just a FEW of the pairings I am planning using the retiring wraps!

Now, keep in mind…these are just a few examples of the GGG Wraps that will look FABULOUS with the Disney Collection by Jamberry.  I am sure if you look, you can come up with more!

Basically, I would just really hate to see someone talk herself OUT of a retiring wrap only to regret it after March 1st gets here.  If you would like to see more pairings, or if you would like a suggestion for matching up the Going, Going, Gone wraps, let me know! I am always more than happy to help!

Release the Inner Junior

Yesterday, there was a lot of excitement over the release of the new Disney Collection by Jamberry.  There was also some disappointment that at the moment, they are only available in adult size.  As I said yesterday, Juniors ARE coming!  I am guessing it won’t be too awful long before they are available.  However, if your little one can’t wait to wear Disney Princess Ariel on her nails, I have a solution for you! In fact, this little trick works for trimming down ANY wrap to fit your nail!  I am going to show you how to make a template, and do it in a way that you only need to do it ONCE!!

First of all, you are going to need a couple of things that I am betting you already have!

12698745_468016880066623_267573595_o

OK…didn’t notice I kind of had a whole Purple Theme going on until just now…but hey! It’s Jamberry so we will go with it! LoL  So, what we have here is everything you will need.

  1. Scotch Tape
  2. Sharpie Marker (The Fine Tip kind would work better, but I couldn’t find mine so the regular Sharpie will work fine as long as it still has a decent point on it)
  3. Scissors (Smaller craft scissors work well)
  4. Thin cardboard.  I used a piece from an envelope box. Cereal boxes, paper plates, or even regular poster board would also work great!
  5. The wraps you want to cut down
  6. Wraps that are the size you want (optional)

Now, there are a couple of ways to get the correct size to make your template. If you have a sheet of wraps (in this case, Juniors) that have wraps that are the size you want still on the sheet, then you can use those!  If not, you can make a template from the nail itself. I don’t have any little ones around to demonstrate that on, so I used my own finger. Yes…my nails are naked! Don’t judge…I am waiting for my Stylebox to come in the mail today! LoL  Anyway, you are going to place the tape on the nail, or on the back of the sheet of wraps over the wrap you want to copy. Using your marker, simply trace around.  You may notice that the tape on the back of the sheet of Junior Wraps has what look like fingerprints all over it. That is because before placing the tape on the sheet, I quickly stuck it to the back of my hand. I didn’t want it TOO sticky because I want to be able to easily remove the tape once I have my outline.

The next thing you are going to do is take your tape and place it on your cardboard.  You will use the outline to cut your template.  Notice I am cutting around the INSIDE of my line.  If I cut around the outside, it would be too large and there would be more trimming involved. Now, you COULD place the tape with the outline directly on the back of the wrap you want to trim, but if you do it on the cardboard first, you will have a template that you can save for later use and not have to go through all this again!

So…now you have your template cut out.  All that’s left is to use it to transfer it onto the wrap you are cutting (Here is where that fine tip Sharpie would really make it easier!) You will notice that I have marked the template with the finger that it is for.  This will make things much easier the next time you need to cut down a wrap!  Basically, all you are going to do is place your template on the back side of the wrap you want to trim, trace around the template then cut it out. Now you have a wrap that is JUST the size you need!

The Wait is OVER!

UPDATE: THEY ARE HERE!!!!!    The Disney Collection By Jamberry!!!

For a long time, those of us in Jamberryland have been speculating about a possible collaboration between Jamberry and Disney. (Imagine us singing “Some daaaay…our PRINTS will come…” LoL) Last night during the Summit Meetings that were held all across the country,  the Fairy Tale Came TRUE!!!  And the best part…no long wait filled with anticipation. No frantic searching for previews that the consultants don’t even have yet!  That’s right folks! I am thrilled to share, The Disney Collection by Jamberry!  These will be available at 10:00 a.m. Mountain Time (for me, here in EST, that will be High Noon!)

First we have designs featuring the ever fashionable Disney Minnie Mouse!

You may have noticed that none of these wraps are Junior sizes.  Yeah…that surprised me too, but we have been assured those are coming soon as well.  If your little ones can’t wait, stay tuned later this week.  I will have a solution for you!

Just a few more details to share here and I will let you get back to drooling over these gorgeous designs!  First of all, for the time being, they are only available in the US and Canada.  (Sorry to my Australian and New Zealand Friends!) They are premium wraps and will not be eligible for any discounts such as B3G1, Hostess Rewards or Product Credits.  The price on these are $18 per sheet (U.S.) and $22 per sheet (Canada).

I am so very excited about these wraps as well as what is to come from this collaboration. I will be back to include direct links in this post as soon as these beauties go live!  Remember, they will be available on My Site today!!
