I'm the first one to admit that ladies with chipped fingernail polish and crusty feet bugs the hell out of me! Sorry but I equate how you keep your hands and feet with your hygiene habits. Just last week, I happened to see a woman with feet as ashy as flour, that you could follow with a trail of breadcrumbs! To make matters worse she had a foot salad; Bunions, Corns, etc. LOL. Okay so what does Eddy's foot fetish have to do with making money? Well it leads me into today's article. In my Jamberry Nails Review you'll discover how to work at home helping people keep their fingernails looking pretty. So let's dig into it.
What is Jamberry Nails?
Unlike the growing expense of salon nails, these Jamberry Nails are nail shields that wrap around your natural nails that you can apply yourself. They are made of strong vinyl that firmly adheres to your nails. Basically, they are a fun and fashionable way to replace nail polish.
Jamberry Nails opened in late 2010, and was launched in Utah. Their website shows the company was started by three sisters. Seems the business is run by CEO: Adam Hepworth.
The Jamberry Nails MLM Home Business Opportunity
The Jamberry Nail Consultant Opportunity is a home based business venture with an MLM model. Consultants can sell with home parties, online, or both. The jamberry nails consultants earn a percentage of what their sponsors earn, and so forth…will explain more on that below.
Start Up Costs
To get started, you will need to purchase a start up kit for $99 with $15 for shipping. Consultants From North Dakota do not have to purchase a starter kit. Damned, if i know why. You will also need to pay $10 per month for a website. However, for the first month, the website is free.
Jamberry Nails Compensation Plan / Commission
A consultant can earn a commission of 30% of their personal sales. From my understanding, Based on the consultant's rank, they can earn 5% of their own sales and also 15% of their first level sales. Consultants are paid 5 levels down. When referring to levels, this is referring to a downline…meaning the people that they sign-up under them and so forth. This is where it gets complicated but ….you know how I feel about a sketchy MLM business model, I like things simple!
Jamberry Nails Complaints
Not surprisingly Jamberry Nails has it's flaws like every company does. It doesn't necessarily mean it's bad or a scam. It's just things that you should be aware of that may cause you to re-evaluate this business. Let's face it not every business or company is meant for everyone. Too often reps just want to paint one story in their Jamberry Nails Reviews. But that does you a disservice so we're here to help.
Who Runs This?
Apparently there was some questions early on about who were the owners of the company. It was as if folks were trying to hide it. But now that doesn't seem to be the case and they make it very clear on the website where the ownership lies.
Forced Minimum Sales
Like many MLMs you're required to move a certain amount of product. But in this case, it's $600 worth of products every YEAR to stay with the company. I'm not sure what happens if you don't move that product but I always find it an annoying requirement. But given you're in a business, it only makes sense they expect you to sell.
Seems there were some heated issues with bad customer support and some of the products. As a result changes were made and the company was relaunched to shake off some of this rocky start. So far it appears the relaunch brought forth better support, managers, and many of the products themselves.
MLM Business Model
Many people just don't like the MLM model..including yours truly! There are a few reasons behind that. A lot of people view MLMs as flat out scams. Some people hate the ideas of attending and hosting parties to make money. Others like myself don't have a PHD to understand their convulded commission plans! My other reasons for my disdain of this business model can be found in my article: Top 5 Reasons Why MLMs Suck! At the end of the day, the business model isn't necessarily favored by many people for various reasons and if you're one of those people, you may want to stay away from this company. You should probably consider searching for a work at home job instead.
Jamberry Nail Wraps Complaints
Apparently there have been problems with the nail wraps while doing normal things like filing down your tips which can end up looking jagged . Some of the Jamberry Nail Wrap Designs were notorious for peeling back no matter how long you applied the warm hair dryer to them. There were also instances of wrinkling in quite a few of the designs minutes after applying.
Most troubling were some reports of toenail fungus after using the Jamberry Nail Wraps. I'm not sure why that happened. Maybe these reports were from people that already had “foot salad” tendencies or maybe not. There are so many factors to consider that we can't necessarily attribute these reports solely to Jamberry Nails.
Jamberry Nails Alternatives
Honestly most of the complaints listed above aren't the worst I've seen for a company. But they may give you some concern. Ultimately Jamberry Nails is about making women feel great and empowering them to make money as well. Another company that does the same thing with a different product is Paparazzi Accessories. And yet another option for people that want to start a business on anything you want is My Top Free Recommendation which is the way I make most of my income. So either way you have options if Jamberry Nails doesn't appeal to you.
So Is Jamberry Nails Legit?
I won't say they are a scam; however, I wouldn't personally recommend them either due to all the nail shield complaints and the MLM business model. The toe nail fungus is also concerning because it leaves you open to lawsuits or hurting a customer that may be a family member or friend. Making your earning quota will always be stressful as well. That said, I do like the idea of the product and I think it is unique. As long as you're fine with some of the possibles issues, it may be worth a shot.
However if none of this sounds appealing to you, then definitely consider looking in to my Top Work At Home Recommendation.
