One week before you go is ok, your growth won't be too horrendous!   Unless your nails grow at the speed of light.

 

I wore nails for years and did mine a week before we left too :)

 

I wouldn't recommend acrylic though, that is probably why Marina had so many issues. I would recommend some type of gel, there are a few different options.  Even shellac can hold up better.   Most salons won't even use acrylic anymore, well in Calgary anyways :) hehe

I almost want to say less than a week before you go. It depends too on how long you're there before your wedding. I would say try to time it so that it's no more than a week before your actual wedding date.

True - that's what I meant!  I went a bit more than a week because it had been 6 weeks after my last fill (was trying to save money) and I just couldn't take it anymore. I got my nails done on Sunday and then 1.5 weeks later I wed.

I find mine when I do shellac grow like CRAZY!!!!  I can generally get about 3 weeks from each one but you can see the growth and if I try and stretch it longer than that then you can really see!!

 

I had one done a week ago sunday and you can already see the bottom of the nail. Don't think I'll get 3 weeks out of this one. My only argument with the shellac is that it destroys your nails. I love it cuz it's nice and shiny and looks so pretty but the after effects suck.

The unfortunate part is that they all ruin your nails :(

 

When you use shellac are you using color or do you have them make colored tips?  I find when I do the gel you don't notice the growth as much because it's 'clear' but if it was blue or pink over the whole nail you could see it much much quicker.  haha did that make sense?

I've never done shellac on gel nails! Wow. I do it on my own nails. But doesn't the gel ruin your nails just as much? I've had it done once or twice and stopped because it was a disaster afterwards.

Shellac on gel nails?   I think you just do one or the other!

I think we lost eachother on that one.

 

I just was curious if you had colored tips or a full colored nail (whether it be gel or shellac they use) because you would see more growth with a colored nail then a clear nail/white tip.

 

They all ruin your nails equally (shellac, gel, acrylic)

I've done both, shellac all color and just color tips and I agree, The colored tips will last much longer. Only because you can't see the growth as much :)

 

If I get them done I'll do it as close to us leaving as possible. My nails, much like my hair, grow extremely fast. I got shellac last time i went to Mexico and by the end of my vacation they started looking a little bit crackled. Maybe it was because of being in the water all the time? Maybe gel might be better? especially if your wedding is towards the end of your vacation like mine :)

I'm shocked they cracked.  I find normal polish will be mostly gone by the time the week is over from the sand, but never had issues with shellac. I always use shellac now when I go to a tropical destination.   but everyone is different and some are harder on their nails than others, etc. 

 

What I like about doing shellac only for tips is that you don't need to have longer nails than you already have.... and it sure can make them look a lot longer than they are!!!

Guest Photo Update - Ceremony 1
 
Shutterfly had a free 8x8 code that expired at midnight (supposedly...it's 1freebook if you have a book ready to go to order), and I wanted to make sure to get at least 1 copy ordered (it's lik $8.28 shipped!).  I had sorted my Canon camera pictures into "best" pictures during our car ride, and went through and did some edits tonight.  I barely squeaked in the midnight deadline, mostly because Shutterfly was being SO slow haha!
 
These are from our nice Canon DSLR, from my brother in law who took surprisingly good photos for not being very experienced.  Here's digest numero uno - I narrowed down about 800 photos to 75 LOL.  ENJOY!
