I have the same questions with nails. I know my wedding is a while away, but I've been thinking about the small details lately and this was one of them. Since I am on vacation I do want to do the things that I love. I love the pool and the beach and doing lots of activities. A regular manicure will usually last a day or two.
I was thinking of doing either shellac, gel, or Jamberries. I've had shellac before and it ruins your nails, but it does last a while and doesn't chip. Also, I don't know if this happens to anyone else, but my shellac nails usually look dirty after about a week. I shower and wash my hands often, but it just looks dirty. I like gel nails, but I'm worried that they might break and I'll have no way to fix them. My friend is a Jamberry consultant and I do really love the product it does last a long time if you apply it right. I was thinking of taking some jamberry wraps with me and just apply it the night before my wedding so my nails will look good. I'm not sure what I want to do yet.
