Jamberry has about 25 different clear designs (click here to see all of them!), and since I started using their regular nail shields a year an a half ago, I have been told at least 20 times that these clear designs can potentially be layered on top of solid colours or gradients, to create a new look. I was curious as to how this was done, but also wasn’t brave enough to try it yet. Then we came out with Deck the Halls at Christmastime.
Deck the Halls was the first clear wrap I’d ever really wanted to try, so I ordered it. I also had half a sheet of Sugarplum Glimmer left over from the only time I tried to wear a solid colour (I’m just a little too crazy for that). Sugarplum seemed like a Christmas-y enough colour.
Then I went looking for information on how to actually layer shields, and I couldn’t find anything good. So, I took the snippets of information I’d been able to glean and developed this method:
The real trick to my method is that I layer the shields on the sheet. That lets me line them up properly and make adjustments as necessary. You’ll see as I progress that, as pieces get smaller, I layer the pieces on the nails instead of on the sheet.
