A Product That I Love....and a Giveaway Too!!

Hello Tribe!

I am going to be sharing a  product with you today that I adore. No, it's not a new ink or glue or paint. It's a product that I find helps me feel good and look good while creating. The product is Jamberry nail wraps.

 Let me tell you why this product is so important to me

  I am on several design teams and that requires that I take  photos of the various steps of my projects. These nail wraps not only look great in the photos but they are incredibly durable. Being a mixed media artist I work with clay, glues, inks, paint and anything else I can get my hands on. My hands are constantly being washed. These babies can hold up!  When in the studio and after leaving I don't want my nails looking like something out of a horror movie.


There is another reason I adore this product. I can use my artwork to create my own custom nails.

You can create in any medium, then just upload a high resolution image of your artwork to place on the wraps. The interface is very intuitive and has many preloaded patterns to get you started.

Here I uploaded a few pieces of my art work to create accent nails. 


Three easy steps to enter the giveaway for your chance to win a FREE sheet of Jamberry Nail Wraps of your choice!
1.Head over to My Altered Life on Facebook and "Like" the page. Full of great art info, tutorials, art from the artist, and featured art from around the world.
2.Head to DKGrahamJams (https://www.facebook.com/DKGrahamJams) and "Like" the page to stay up to date on all things Jamberry and Kirstan's custom creations.

Good Luck !!

What are Jamberry Nail wraps?
The wraps are a solid film covering that can be applied directly to the nail to achieve a look not found anywhere else. This special material is both pressure and heat activated to create a water tight bond to your nail. The shields are made in the USA, with no harsh chemicals and are latex free.
This new nail treatment can be applied in about fifteen minutes at home. With over three hundred styles to choose from, these designer wraps are made to last up to two weeks on fingers and four or more on toes. Unlike traditional nail polish, they won’t chip and require no drying time. It’s so easy to achieve a professional, salon look at a fraction of the cost.
