I was looking for something fun to do with just my 5 year old daughter and she loves getting her nails done.  I had never tried Jamberry, and when my friend Bethany opened a Jamberry store, I was excited!  I could let my daughter pick something special and we could have a mother/daughter day!
If you're not familiar with Jamberry, they offer a DIY nail application that comes in a HUGE variety of styles.  If you can't find something you like, they offer a Nail Art Studio where you can upload your own graphics or create a custom pattern using their presets.  Jamberry Nails come in junior-sized wraps that are perfect for little hands, regular size and pedicure size.  Jamberry Mommy & Me comes in 2 sheets- for the little one and one for you!  Bethany sent me free wraps to share our Jamberry experience with you!
My daughter chose the Teal Mini Polka (Glossy) and Tropical Mirage pair. 
I held the sheet up to her fingers to gauge the right size, then cut out the ones that looked like they'd fit best.  I cut the wraps right in half. My daughter wanted the polka on the thumb as an accent.  The kit came with instructions and a pair of alcohol wipes, an orange stick and a nail file.
The instructions say to clean nails with alcohol wipes, push back cuticle, peel wrap and blow dry it for 3-5 seconds then apply.  Press firmly and cut excess (small curved scissors work great!) then file in downward motion.  Applying more heat on the nails will help the wraps bond better.
The first time using these, it's surprisingly easy!  It takes maybe 10 minutes or so to do and then it's done and the wraps should last up to 2 weeks!  The only tip I have to share is that you should guess a size up instead of down.  You can always trim off anything that sticks out past the nail.  Still, I think it looks amazing and my daughter is so proud.  She's been showing her manicure off to EVERYONE!

I chose Jaded- it's a sparkly teal design to compliment my daughter's nails!  I decided to have my ring finger as the accent with the Tropical Mirage from my daughter's pack. I also won a free pedi-pack from a Facebook Jamberry party Bethany hosted!
I LOVE MY NAILS!  I love that you can get several applications per sheet.  I love all the fancy designs (I just ordered some Muddy Camo wraps for my next application) and the ability to create your own!  I love how shiny they turn out, they don't look like stickers AT ALL!  I definitely would recommend giving Jamberry a try.  I'm sure there's something you'll love too!
