WOW!  The deal got even better…today only, 4/11/14, you’ll get FREE shipping with every order too!

With how busy things have been around here the past few weeks, I didn’t get around to getting my kids Easter outfits yet!  I told my husband that and he said, “Oh no!  What would we do without new Easter outfits!” as many husbands probably would.

So with all the birthdays and parties in the last few weeks over I started my search where I usually do – at The Children’s Place website.  And just like many times before that’s where my search ended too!  There was a fabulous sale with adorable clothes!

GIVEAWAY: Win a Sheet of Jamberry Nail Wraps! {4 Winners!}

Saving by Design giveaway extravaganza
 
Print Friendly

Saving by Design giveaway extravaganza

Did you know I’ve been a Jamberry Nails Independent Consultant for 2 years now?  I just love my Jams! :D

Jamberry Nail 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 (blow dryer) activated to create a water tight bond to your nail.  The shields are made in the USA and are non-toxic with no harsh chemicals.

Saving by Design giveaway extravaganza

This new nail treatment can be applied in just fifteen minutes at home.  With over 300 styles available (including Jamberry Juniors for the munchkins, NCAA licensed wraps, holidays, sports, and sorority) and the ability to create your own, these designer nail wraps are made to last up to 2 weeks on fingers and 6 – 8 weeks 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!

Saving by Design giveaway extravaganza

Take a look at some of the benefits.  All nail wrap sets…

  • can be applied in 15 minutes
  • can be removed in 5 minutes
  • have enough wraps for 2 to 3 applications (or more depending on nail length) on fingers and/or toes
  • last 2 weeks on fingers, 6 – 8 weeks on toes
  • are NOT nail polish so they will not chip
  • have no harsh chemicals and are latex-free
  • are vegan and gluten-free
  • are made in the USA 

Saving by Design giveaway extravaganza

In addition to their wraps, Jamberry also offers professional nail lacquer.  Jamberry Lacquers provide a rich and extensive palette of the widest range of colors and effects without the use of Toluene, Formaldehyde, Dibutylphthalate (DBP), Camphor or Formaldehyde Resin.  It’s made in the USA, gluten free, cruelty free, and Vegan friendly.  

Saving by Design giveaway extravaganza

Since Jamberry is a direct sales company, there’s also the opportunity to host a party (in person or online) to earn FREE wraps!  Or you can become a consultant and earn some easy cash just for showing off your nails.  At only $99 to get started this was an opportunity that I just couldn’t pass up!   Join the Jammin’ by Design team (hehe!) and we’ll work together to help you earn your maximum potential.  Since Jamberry Nails is so new to the direct sales market you’ll get in on the ground floor and watch your team quickly grow.  

Through 4/4/14 I’m happy to offer 15% off all Jamberry orders placed with me!  This is in addition to Jamberry’s Buy 3 Get 1 FREE ongoing promotion!  Just contact me to place your order and with any questions or to request a sample too :)

I’d love to give you the chance to try Jamberry wraps for yourself!  Four lucky readers will each win a sheet of Jamberry Nail wraps in the style of their choice!

Head on over to the Banana’s Bows N Bands Etsy shop to see the most adorable headbands and more for your little princess.  All listings can be customized, so please don’t hesitate to contact Nicole for different colors, sizes, or anything else that you can think of.  Use code SBD10 through April 30, 2014 to save 10% on your entire order too!  Also be sure to become a fan of the Banana’s Bows N Bands Facebook page for additional discounts and announcements :)

Saving by Design giveaway extravaganza

One of my favorite items is the Complete First Year of Headbands which includes beautiful Newborn , New Year’s Eve, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, & 1st Birthday headbands.  How perfect for all those special occasions and holidays your little one’s first year!

of Infant Headbands and a $5 coupon to be used in the
