I would hate for that to happen because I get so upset when I am trying to look all fancy and my nails look horrible. Maybe it is something my Mom instilled in me, but I have a need for nice looking nails (if anyone in my office is reading this please don't comment on my current nail condition). However, there really is nothing to worry about, because I plan on getting a No-Chip manicure. Have you ever gotten one of these? Yes, they are a little bit pricier (in Chicago they go for about $30), but they last the entire TWO WEEKS. I don't know about you, but I think it is really worth it. Another plus about No-Chips is your nails are completely dry when you leave. They put your hands under UV lamps and after a few minutes they are dry! If you are worried about damaging your skin I heard of a wonderful trick... put on sun screen before your mani!
There are many different brands to choose from, but my two favorites are Shellac and OPI. I like to go with an OPI color when I plan on matching my toes and nails since they occasionaly make their regular colors for their No-Chip line.
|This weekend the wedding is black tie so I am keeping away from the bright colors. Instead I plan on doing Romantique by Shellac.|
As a professional bridesmaid I highly encourage you to get a No-Chip before a big wedding weekend. Between packing, traveling, getting ready and sometimes spending time in the pool it is worth the extra money to gaurentee you nails are flawless for the big day. Does anyone else agree with me?
