Making your own template for your Jamberry Nails to get that perfect fit!

Gather your supplies:
1. Book rings (and feel free to just ask me for one because they came in bulk so I had to buy a ton)
2. Scotch tape
3. Sharpie markers fine tip
4. Hole punch
5. Scissors
6. Clear plastic folder

Ruffles aren't the only thing with ridges. Look at those ridges on my nails and they're even pigmented. So far the wraps I've used have disguised this issue very well and I haven't even applied base coat. But I did order some and may try it next time if I use a wrap that it's an issue like a clear one or who knows? They have a smoothing coat which sounds like it was made for me.

So you outline your nail with a sharpie. Now try to get as close to edge of nail or you might even want to just stay on edge of nail. In fact, do that it makes more sense.

Now you just stick the tape on the plastic folder. Then you cut it out. Make them long enough that you have a handle to hold when you are sizing your nails. 

Label them. I made L1, L2, L3, L4, L5 and then R1, R2... you get my drift. Then I did my toes and just made them shorter handles and different colors. I used a different color for each hand or foot.

Then you use these to cut your wraps. I should have one a picture of that but I was alone and since that's a two handed job I couldn't figure out how to do that.

If you are also a patient of mine and want to make these then let me know next time you're in the office or just email me and I can give you a book ring. You can even use my sharpies but bring your own plastic folder I'm running out.
