    ps Yes I know the newt is my imaginary pet newt so is in fact a made up newt and the other newt or newts might be real newts but I don't care!!!!

    the jamberry wraps were tricky to start with when using my left hand but I'm getting better at them. you just warm them up with either hairdryer or their special fan heater then press onto nails and file edge. Whole sheets of wraps have different sizes to match nail sizes. Not the cheapest option tho but definitely last longer than varnish

    You've reminded me that I've won wraps too (a friend runs an online jamberry group with occasional comps to win wraps) so that will be my J for Jamberry sorted

    never tried using Fablon as a nail wrap as per Manseys suggestion! I always think of the wood effect stuff - not a good look for nails
    Big thanks to all who post

    Must give it ago. can you make your nails longer with them though or do they end when your nails end? If you know what I mean.

    I'm always breaking mine when gardening. I'm peeved that my mums nails were armour plated - always had a full set of long nails no matter how much gardening she did -and although I have inherited lots of her traits that wasn't one of them. My niece seems to have inherited the armour plating tho, humph!

    This is too much girly chat for even me

    Are you winning any competitions?
    No, cos your painting/putting Fablon on your nails

    Your making me suspicious Mrs Bot all this "nails" talk is just a diversion I think..........What has the Newt done?
