Shameless Plug Ahead

How many of you ran away when you read the title of this post?  LOL


If you are already my Facebook friend, you probably know what is coming. 

I have done something....become something....I never ever thought I would be.  Ever!

I am an Independent  Consultant for Jamberry Nail Wraps.

Yes, I am the dreaded "salesman"!

I can't believe it either.

I was telling a friend the other day that I hate salesman.  Yes, hate is a strong word.  But, I will be honest, I have sort of a disdain for salespeople, in general.  They are usually just so schmoozy and.....well.....fake.

That is NOT me.

I mean, I can small talk with pretty much anybody, when necessary.  But, I don't really like to do it.  It sort of makes me sweat inside of my brain, you know?

I want to be known as an authentic person and not change who I am based on who I am around.

So, why did I sign my name on the dotted line and become a salesman for Jamberry Nail Wraps?

Because......plain and simple....I tried them....I loved them....I couldn't wait to tell other people with short, stubby nails like mine about them!

I have always had short stubby nails.

I have been a massage therapist for 22 years.  (Wow, that makes me feel really old!)

I have 6 kids.

Of course I have short, stubby nails!

And, to be honest, I like my short stubby nails.  They are practical.  I am not afraid of gouging anybodies eyes out accidentally while shampooing their hair or washing their face.  You can open cans and jars and car doors.

They work for me.

But, the downside of that is that I rarely feel super....feminine...if that makes sense.

I always keep my toenails painted, but my fingernails were just nude colored and easily ignored.

Then, I tried Jamberry nails after another homeschool mom I know started selling them.  I totally tried them to be polite.


(See?  Short and stubby....but, cute!  The nail on my ring finger had been on for about 2 weeks at this point - you can see that there is a little more space between the nail wrap and my cuticle because it had grown out a bit.)
They are cute.

 Look how cute these are!

They stay put until I want to take them off....usually because my nail has grown so much there is a gap at the bottom.

I wash a lot of little heads and faces.  I wash a lot of pots and pans (because, yes, apparently I AM the only that notices them).  I load/unload the dishwasher at least 2 times a day.  Not to even mention laundry, tying shoelaces, pulling out splinters, and  the ten billion other things that a mom does all day long.

They do not move.

They stay shiny.

So, yes, I have become an Independent Consultant for Jamberry Nail Wraps....and I am not even ashamed of that fact.

If you have never heard of them, go check out my web page and take a look at all the options available.  Over 300 designs, plus there is a Nail Art Studio where you can design your own wraps.  People have made them for their favorite t.v. shows like Dr. Who, or their favorite books, like Harry Potter or Dr. Suess, and just cool looking artsy fartsy ones.  Brides have even designed special ones that match their wedding theme for their bridesmaids gifts.

So much cuteness and so affordable.  A sheet of nail wraps that has enough for 2 pedicures and 2-3 manicures on it costs $15.  Even I can afford $15 for a fun little treat for myself.  That is why I did the last thing I expected to do.....and signed on the dotted line.

I am really excited about these things....can you tell?

I am having a business launch party on my website through Friday.  So, if you need unique, affordable Christmas gifts or just want to treat yourself, come on over and shop.  We are also having a Buy 3, Get 1 Free sale too!  (Wow!  I really am a salesman now, aren't I?)

And, now I am one of those people that put graphics like this out in view of the public....and....mean it.
