will my manicure and pedicure last for a week??

Recommended Posts

So I leave in 8 days!  I have a silly worry right now. My nails are not in the best shape - I had planned on really taking care of them, but nope, didn't happen. They are weak and break easily. I want to get a manicure and pedicure before I leave (I would get them done monday) and the wedding is saturday. I know I can get a manicure at Dreams, or in town, but I really don't want to. Did you ladies notice that your pre-trip mani/pedi lasted until the wedding? Should I just get acrylics? I hate them, but I don't want nasty nails!!

Everytime i have been on vaca, my mani never lasts from being in the water all the time....once i even got clear polish put on and even that just pealed off after being in the water...i would get it done there, or get it done before you go, so the shape is nice and cuticles are clean, but bring remover and polisher with you to re-do the morning of your wedding if you dont want to go get a profesional one,

You should get the Axxium/Opi Gel polish. Mine literally lasted three weeks, and the only reason it didn't last is because my nail outgrew the paint job. It does not damage the nail at all, looks just like a gel. You are supposed to get it professionally removed, I didn't and my nails were fine. But it is amazing! You can get it in french and other colors too. It's more expensive but that's because each layer is sealed in with a UV light, but so worth it...about $45.

I love the Axxium manicure.  I'm all set to have it done next week and then once more before my wedding but I'm worried about how it holds up in the salt water.  Does anyone have an answer to that?

 

If I were you and you wanted to have it done before you go I would look into that type because it doesn't ruin your nails like acrylics do.  I've had it done 4 times and it's great and you don't get that feeling of not being able to do anything with your hands after and you can still use your nails since they aren't much thicker than your regular nail.

If you are getting it done on your real nails, it won't last.  You feet will, but  not the hands.  I find that every time we go away, my toes still look amazing, and my hands are  done by the 3rd day.

 

I'd get it done there. Get it done a day before your wedding so it dries properly.

I have tried Axxium and it was okay and did last the 2+ weeks well.  However, I have found that the CND Shellac brand works better (for me) than the OPI Axxium.  Axxium is too thick to me, like real gel, and I have a hard time believing it won't do damamge over time.  CND Shellac is thin like regular polish and its been great!  OPI takes forever to soak off and CND really does take 3 minutes.  I hate to throw you a curve with only a few days but I did some internet research on both before and I am doing my trials now to see what look works best.   So far my vote is for CND Shellac.

My vote is for the Shellac! I have had it done three times and love it every time! I am planning on getting it done about two days before we leave. Now I just have to decide between picking a color and doing a french manicure!

I'm getting Shellac for this reason too. My sister is an esthetician and she swears by it... especially since I hate gel nails. Haha.

I'm going to look into the Shellac as well, but if worse comes to worse, pink and white acrylic will be used.  Thanks ladies for the advice!

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
