MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - To feel and look at their best, ladies sometimes want to have manicure and pedicures.
However, going to the nail salon can be a pricey luxury. Now, a company by the name of Jamberry has developed nail design wraps that offer the convenience of a nail salon at home for a smaller price.
Heather Moore, a Myrtle Beach Jamberry consultant, said the nail wraps are meant to give women salon-quality nails at home.
"You have no dry time," Moore said. "They last up to two weeks on your nails and six weeks for your toes."
Deal Diva Christel Bell received help from Elanya Conard, a summer intern with WMBF News, to try out the product.
Moore said for $15, the vinyl nail wraps come on a sheet that can cover toes and hands and provide at least three to four uses.
When applying her first nail wrap, Conard said she was not sure how to smooth the bubbles and lifts that were between her nail and the adhesive.
However, after trying the wraps on a few more nails she said it became easier.
"The designs are something you can't necessarily achieve with polish," Conrad said. "This design, you can get that out of a bottle, so I like that aspect of it."
Moore said the nail wraps come in more than 300 designs. She added the wraps eliminate the smell and chemicals associated with regular nail polish.
For those starting out with the product, Moore said it will generally take about an hour to do a full manicure with the wraps. After several tries, it can be done in about 30 minutes.
