I was interviewed by the blog. Interview The Reps.
What made you decide to join a Direct Sales company?
I wasn’t looking to join a Direct Sales company. I ordered a sheet of nail wraps with the idea that I would try them and be a customer. I shared pictures that I saw online with my friends. Little did I know they also made a purchase. The next day my sponsor contacted me and thanked me for sharing her link with my friends. She opened a party for me so I could be rewarded. She also told me that I earned half off my kit then asked when am I signing up. I saw how easy Jamberry is to sell and joined that day. What company did you join, and why did you pick that company?I decided to join Jamberry Nails. When I joined June 18, 2012 we only had nail wraps. I could not polish my own nails to save my life so I knew it was a match for me. I figured there were others out there like me who didn’t want to go to the salon to have their nails done. I loved the different nail art designs, especially the flames (now retired) because I could support my husband’s business while promoting my own.How long have you been working in Direct Sales?I have been with Jamberry Nails just under three years. I was with Mary Kay prior to this experience, but left after two years for personal reasons. I have found Jamberry Nails is a better match for me. What is your favorite thing about working for a Direct Sales company and owning your own business?I love being able to work my own schedule. I do not have to ask for time off and worry I may or may not get the time off I needed if I could not find a replacement for my shifts. I also enjoy if I need more money that month all I need is to add another party or two to my schedule. How do you convince others that joining your team will benefit them?Convincing others to join is not how I run my business. I will ask people if they have ever considered doing what I do. I ask everyone one this, just like I ask if they had fun at the party they just attended and if they want to host their own party. You never know what that answer will be. I love hearing their answers and helping them make an informed decision themselves. I would rather have a customer that will host parties and refer their friends to me instead of convincing them Direct Sales is for them when they don’t want a business right now. Direct sales may not be for them right now, but you never know what the future may bring. Your customers are always watching how you run your business.
I do home parties, catalog parties, and online parties. For my online parties I prefer to use my Meet.fm room it is closer to a home party experience, but will do Facebook or Skype parties if requested. My Jamberry Nails website has a tab with the capability to request a party with me.

When it comes to nail art, there are dozens of different trends out there, but the Accent Nail trend is undoubtedly one of the biggest. Also known as a ‘party nail,’ an accent nail can quickly take your manicure from standard to sassy!
Here are a few tips on when the accent nail is an absolutely mani- must:
For the Nail Art Newbie –
Have a friend or family member who is a little hesitant to jump into the nail art pool? Accent nails are a great way for them to dip their toe (or finger) in to the world of Nail Art. A lacquer based manicure with a coordinating accent nail wrap can act as a gateway into fully adopting nail art onto all ten digits.
For a Special Occasion –
Have an upcoming occasion that may call for a mani that is a little more subdued or simple? Maybe a wedding, or an interview for a new job? An accent nail is a great way to keep your nails ‘event appropriate’ yet not too ordinary. Use a neutral or classic colored base for your manicure and then add that little extra pop with a tone on tone nail wrap. If the event is not too formal, you can go for the bold accent nail that features a contrasting color.
For making a Statement –
An accent nail can be a fun yet subtle way of making an announcement, declaring your allegiance, or sharing your fandom. Try a neutral colored manicure with either a pink or blue accent nail to make a baby announcement. Rock your schools primary color with a collegiate wrap accent to show which side you are on during rivalry week. You could even celebrate a holiday or pop culture event – Jaws inspired accent nail for Shark Week anyone?!
These ‘reasons’ to try an accent nail are only a few of many, but really who needs a reason? In our book we think accent nails are a do pretty much all of the time! With a new catalog out for fall, we can’t wait to see what nail wrap you accent with!
Stylebox by Jamberry is a monthly subscription service. Each month you will get 1 catalog item, 1 Stylebox exclusive item, nail file and orange stick delivered to your mailbox. Who knew Jamberry could make your mailbox more stylish?!
This is what was in my mailbox this morning. Orchid is still a big hit of the summer and is carrying over into the fall months. It is not too late to get this look. Simply visit http://bit.ly/choganstylebox take a quiz on your fashion style then decide how long you want your mailbox to visited by great fashions.

You do not have to take my word on Stylebox. Imagine my surprise when the blog I read, Sassy Moms in the City, had a post about it on July 29,2014. Read the review for yourself here: http://sassymomsinthecity.com/stylebox-by-jamberry-review/ There is one thing I disagree with. While it would make a great gift for the teenager in your life, women of all ages love Jamberry Nails and would love a monthly Stylebox by Jamberry.

It’s called Nail Art for a reason. Not all of us have the talent to recreate the wonderful nail art we see. If I had to recreate the chevron pattern I am currently wearing, I would have naked nails! I’m sure everyone thanks me for not attempting it. 😉
Thank God for Jamberry Nails! This allows those of us who do not have the talent, time, patience, or the extra money to spend in a salon for the artwork. Jamberry Nails is a heat activated nail wrap, which lasts 2 weeks on your finger nails and 6 weeks or more on your toe nails. They come in over 300 different designs! Can’t find something you like? Design your own in the Nail Art Studio.
