 StyleBox by Jamberry Subscription Box Review - August 2014 Card pattern

August’s theme is “Miss Monochromatic” and the color they’re featuring is Radiant Orchid! I was really glad to see this because I’ve been downright obsessed with this shade ever since Pantone named it color of the year.

StyleBox by Jamberry Subscription Box Review - August 2014 Items

I know nail wraps have been in just about every subscription box this summer, but I genuinely love these designs. The purples are awesome for transitioning into the fall, and I’m a huge fan of chevron and floral prints.

Verdict: Nail wraps are one of those things I’ve generally felt pretty indifferent towards, but I really do love these Jamberry patterns and colors. I actually look forward to trying these out soon!

What do you think of the August StyleBox by Jamberry? Which design do you like most?

  1. I love jamberry nail wraps, I am a huge nail polish fan and these are a blast
    Can not wait for my box

  2. I LOVE our Jamberry nail wraps! These wraps are different from all the others. They are non toxic, vegan, gluten free, never tested on animals and are super easy to apply! A single sheet of nail wraps is enough to do 2 full manis and 2 full pedis! Plus they last 2 weeks on fingers and 6 weeks on toes. None of the “other brand” of nail wraps last that long! Our StyleBox includes one item from our catalog (a wrap or a lacquer) and one exclusive wrap that you can only get in the StyleBox! Plus they give you a new nail file and an orange stick each month. Normally our nail wraps sell for $15 each so you’re really getting a great deal w/ the StyleBox! If you’d like to try a sample please let me know!

  3. Jamberry definitely has the most variety when it comes to nail wraps but I have been so disappointed. They do not last long at all. A couple days tops. On my sister they fell off in just a few hours. Don’t waste your money on these. You’re better off buying the Sally Hansen ones.

    • I just took my Jamberry off last night, on day 13…they last when done right. And no, I don’t sell them.

      • I’m the master problem solver when it comes to Jams…do you happen to have oily nail beds? This last pregnancy turned me into an oily beast and my Jams wouldn’t last on my bare nail. I’d have to clean my nails with alcohol then apply a base coat of any polish then apply my jams.

    • I love them too…as does my sister! I am a nurse and they last about a week on me but my sister has a desk job and hers last at least two weeks. I cant paint my own nails to save my life so these have really been something I love. They do have a learning curve I think as in the beginning I couldnt get them on right….but now after 5 times they are perfect!

  4. Considering that one sheet costs $15, you only are saving $5. If I enjoyed these, I would much rather pick out my own designs than pay $25 every month and hope I like the designs

  5. Did I miss something in the review, or did you pay $25 for 2 sets of nail wraps and a file?!? Seems like a huge rip-off to me! I was expecting to see several bottles of color, plus a couple sets of nail wraps, as well as some nail art tools or decorations for that price! I might pay ten bucks for the items listed above, but, with the success I’ve had with nail wraps, probably not even $10. I even took a pair of nail wraps to my nail salon and had my nail tech apply them. Not a single tech in the salon had ever seen or used nail wraps before, and to be quite honest, I was pretty upset that they charged me an extra $10 to put nail wraps on for me….I had to show him how to do it, it took him forever, and he did a worse job than I did myself! Ooops….realized I was ranting! Back to my original point…..did all the images for this review load? Can’t believe that’s all you get for $25! This company won’t last for long at that rate!

    • Jamberry isn’t just a sub box company. They are a home party type thing. Their nail wraps are $15 each, so the sub box is a savings over buying them individually.

      I’ve tried other nail wraps and Jamberry is different. They actually stay on. The company says 2 weeks for manis, 6 for pedis. There is a whole application method that involves heat. You also get 2 manis and 2 pedis out of each sheet (or a combination).

    • The biggest “perk” to this box is not the value, but the fact that one of the wraps is exclusive to the StyleBox and you can’t buy it yourself.

  6. Love jamberry! So glad that I’m a consultant for such a great company!

  7. I’m so glad to see a review is this box. I’ve been wanting to see what’s in it. I love Jamberry.

  8. I am a huge fan of these boxes as well. Heck, I love Jamberry! So much I sell them. I love their exclusive designs.

  9. Well, I think Jamberry Nail wraps are gorgeous and wonderful…but I am a Jamberry consultant, so I am little bit biased! 🙂

    • I agree with you, Jennifer!! I love your Jamberry products!!
