My sister gave me one of Jamberry Nails' nail shields to try out. I am trying to grown out my nails or should I say stubs. I have been a serious, committed nail biter for years. She heard that some people had success with these nail shields while they tried to wean themselves from nail biting. So I gave this one strip a try.
I got a blue and white striped nail shield. It comes in one long strip that you have to cut in half. I wish they would just give you two long strips so you didn't have to cut them, but oh well it really isn't that much of a hassle. Application was easy and there are videos online that demonstrate how to apply the shields.
The only problem with application I had was getting the top of the shield to seal seamlessly. I'm not sure if this was a problem with the product or my lack of a good nail file.
I ended up only wearing my nail shields for about three days, supposedly they last 2 weeks on finger nails. These things are essentially a big sticker on your nail and I found myself picking at the sides of the shield and the top where it wasn't seamless. If you don't pick and bite at your nails these might be a great option. They looked nice and were easy to put on, but personally I don't think they work for me and my bad habits.
