If you have the Jamberry application kit or a similar sized cosmetics bag for your manicure supplies, that will hold a few sheets nicely. But when your collection grows, there are some cute, inexpensive storage options...

Basic Jamberry Nails application video showing 4 methods (includingbaggie, rice bag and spoon pusher)
I try to keep my videos short and sweet with loads of helpful tips. This one is on the longer side but I promise you'll learn a lot! It covers the popular "baggie method" as well as other options for that final heat/press step. I'll highlight some of the key points below:

For beginners! A quick video showing 3 different ways to hold the wrap when applying your Jamberry... the "fold back", the "thumb close up" and the "balancing orange stick". Your very first application might feel awkward but once you get in the groove you will be a pro before you know it! Some people use tweezers, too, which I haven't tried yet. The main thing is to avoid touching the wrap too much because the oils from your fingers can break down the adhesive. After I made the video I remembered a 4th way -- stick it on the end of the cuticle pusher (as pictured above) and this also prevents the wrap from curling too much which can make the application challenging.

Here's the official video...
So each month you get 2 sheets (or 1 sheet and 1 lacquer) -- at least 1 of the designs is exclusive, sometimes both. (>>>UPDATE in March, Jamberry announced that going forward both products will be exclusive designs!). They also add a file and an orange stick because you always need more of those. And sometimes there's another bonus, like this pink lipstick that came in the January box.
I know what you're thinking and no, you don't get to pick the wraps. And yes, there is a risk that you'll get something you don't like. But I can help you trade if you don't like it, so don't fret!
When you sign up, you take a quiz to find out your style, but, between you and me, it won't change what's in the box - they're all the same. But each month they make a cute video with style tips. Take the quiz here!

Here's a very short video showing how to trim down a wrap for a squared off cuticle, and "tuck" the wrap under the cuticle with the cuticle pusher. Easy peasy!

Here's a quick (4 1/2 minute) video showing how I remove my Jamberry nail wraps. It's the official method that's on the back of the packaging, and my preferred method. (Eventually I'll talk about some of the other methods). If you don't make it to the end of the video, here are some important points that I don't want you to miss:

Contrary to what you might think, Jamberry nail wraps look super cute on even the shortest nails! They even help nail biters grow out their nails. I just hacked mine off and here's me wearing Sweet Whismy in matte finish.
