Jamberry Nails reviews
Jamberry Nails has been one of the very fastest growing network marketing companies in the world, over the past 12 months. Does that mean that you should be thinking about joining this company? Let’s take a look. This is my Jamberry Nails review.
If you are thinking about joining Jamberry Nails, you should read as many Jamberry Nails reviews as you can find. Be sure that the reviews that you read are not written by current members of the Jamberry Nails opportunity. They are just there to try to recruit you into the business and may not give you an unbiased review.
My review of Jamberry Nails will be an independent review. I am not, nor have I ever been a distributor of Jamberry Nails products or the business opportunity.
Whether you are thinking of joining Jamberry Nails or any other network marketing company, I would urge you to do your own due diligence. People frequently lose money while trying to build any network marketing company.
Jamberry Nails reviews – the company and its history
Jamberry Nails was founded by three sisters, in the summer of 2010. Lyndsey Ekstrom, Christy Hepworth and Keri Evans are the 3 sisters who had the idea for “nail art.” It is Christy’s husband, Adam Hepworth who is currently serving as the company’s CEO.
Jamberry Nails is located in Lindon, Utah. If you would like to visit the Jamberry Nails website, you can find it here. Jamberry Nails website.
As of January 2012, Jamberry Nails had approximately 700 distributors. At last count, they had about 7,000 distributors. That is meteoric growth!
That’s the good news. The bad news is that the company has only been in business for 4 years. Personally, I prefer that a company be in business for at least 5 years. This is because most network marketing companies that fail will fail in their first 5 years. Looking at the stunning growth that they’ve experienced, I like their chances of staying in business!
Jamberry Nails reviews – their Better Business Bureau rating
Jamberry Nails has a rating of A-, with the Better Business Bureau. I like to see that a company has at least an A rating or higher. Although, A- is acceptable, to me.
The job of the BBB is to receive complaints about the company, their service and their products. They try to resolve these complaints.
If you would like to read about the complaints that Jamberry Nails has gotten, you can go to the BBB website. You can find out what type of complaints they have gotten and if and how they were resolved. This may give you an idea of what you might face as a distributor for Jamberry Nails.
Jamberry Nails reviews – their products
Jamberry Nails’ primary product is their nail wraps. They say that they are not stickers, but they look like stickers to me. They are sold on sheets that contain enough material to do 2-3 sets of nails. They are supposed to last 2 weeks on fingernails or 4 weeks on toenails.
The pricing for each sheet of nail wraps, according to their website, is $15.00.
They also offer nail care products, products to aid in the application of the nail wraps, nail lacquers and hand care products. They are just introducing a service where you can upload your own images and custom design your own nail wraps.
The custom nails will cost $18.75 per sheet and there is a one time set up charge of $6.00.
I always encourage people to try out the products before they sign up with a company. If you would like to try Jamberry Nails’ nail wraps, you can find a few on Amazon.
There a few for sale at the moment. Notice that they are offered as 1/2 sheets.
Trying the nail wraps out will allow you to decide if you think that you can sell the products.
Jamberry Nails reviews – if you join
If you do decide to join the company as a distributor, it will cost you $99.00. You get the following items:
Jamberry starter kit contains the following:
100 Order Forms
Rubber Cuticle Pusher
50 Orange Sticks
5 Nail Files
3 Sets of Scissors
50 Sample Cards
1 Sheet of Jamberry Nails
Credit to Order 3 Sheets of Nails of Your Choosing
3 Months of Use on Your Personal Website
You get 3 months of your personal website for free. If you want to have it after that, it will be a recurring payment of $10.00 per month.
Jamberry Nails does not have an autoship program. That is a plus for the distributors. I’ve long held that autoship is one of the main reasons that network marketers go broke and quit.
Jamberry Nails reviews – the compensation plan
There are 13 different levels to the Jamberry Nails compensation plan. You start out as a Consultant and you progress through to being Elite Executive, at the top level.
They have a 14 page document, of which 3 pages are there to describe the pay plan, the bonuses and overrides that the distributors can earn.
You can find the entire compensation plan document here. It is available for download.
Jamberry Nails reviews – their income disclosure statement
Jamberry Nails actually provides 2 different documents for their compensation plan. They have the one for the United States and one for their newly opened Canadian division. I’m including the Canadian compensation plan document in the income disclosure statement section because Jamberry Nails has hidden the only income disclosure statement inside this document.
The information is not very thorough, but it tells a great deal about the earnings that can be expected by anyone joining this company.
Again, the document is available for download.
On page 2 of the document, it says,
“Typical Participant means a Participant engaged in the plan for at least one year. A Typical Participant in the plan earns between CAD $36 and $998 annually. Please note that these earnings are estimates and have been derived from the earnings experience of Jamberry Canada’s U.S. parent company, which operates similar and comparable compensation plans, selling comparable products in the United States and worldwide.”
Subtract about 10% for people doing Jamberry Nails here in the US. The exchange rate comes into play.
Unfortunately, the company doesn’t break down these numbers. It is very telling that they are willing to say that the typical person who tries this business is only earning anywhere from $3.00 per month up to $83.00 per month.
Is $83.00 per month an income that you can get excited about?
Jamberry Nails reviews – is this the right company for you?
You will need to weigh things out for yourself. Jamberry Nails is an extremely fast growing company, at the moment. Going from 700 distributors to 7,000 in less than 2 years is nothing short of amazing!
I would suggest talking to as many current and former distributors of Jamberry Nails to find out what kind of experiences that they have had in the business.
As with all network marketing companies the person who sponsors you is probably more important than the company and their products.
In the end, it will be up to you to sell the products and find people to sponsor into the business. It helps if you are enthusiastic about both!
Whether you decide to join Jamberry Nails or another network marketing company, keep in mind that 97%+ people never make any money in the business and most of those actually lose money.
Whatever you decide to do, I wish you the best of luck!
This concludes my Jamberry Nails reviews. I would urge you to do your own due diligence and keep in mind that the company tells prospects that the most a typical person can, currently, earn in this business is $83.00 per month.
