Just for fun: Nails

So I’m sure many women who perform or teach music have the same issue I have at times: how do I find time to do something to my nails so they don’t look gross? Whether it’s teaching lessons or classes where you have to gesture and point at notes on the page, meeting with other musicians and parents, or performing a solo on a woodwind instrument, nobody likes to have gross-looking nails. What’s really bad is when you have nice polish that has chipped, and no time to fix it before your interview or meeting with your boss. A solution? Nail wraps! More specifically, Jamberry nail wraps. I discovered them through a musician friend and tried out a free sample…they’re great! Best of all, they come in tons of colors ranging from clear or French-tip to sparkly or patterned. There’s even one with sheet music!

There is a bit of a learning curve to them, but they work similarly to those things you shrink-wrap onto Easter eggs (minus the boiling water, of course). If for some reason they start to peel you can simply re-heat and file them (after they harden again). They are supposed to last between 10-14 days, but mine lasted for three weeks! (Though by that time my nails were growing out.)

I am hosting an online party on Facebook, if anyone is interested. You don’t have to go to the party to shop, you can simply go to the link http://sarahmateo.jamberrynails.net/ If you decide to purchase, please remember to select “Eowyn’s Party” so I get the credit. If a certain number of people buy then I can get some free wraps! I definitely want the music ones. 🙂 Also, you can try a FREE SAMPLE. Email Sarah Mateo (her email is on the Jamberry page) and she can send you a sample of the selection below. Just let her know what number you would like to try. I tried #5. 🙂
