I got back from my vacation on Saturday, what a great trip, the beach was awesome. Anyways, below is my vacation mani and pedi.
By the pool, in the shade
Me in the shadows blowing a kiss with my hibiscus flower in my hair :) ... lol i know, i'm a total loser
On the Beach, in the shade
I used China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy for both, on my hands I Konaded a hibiscus flower on my ring fingers and finished them off with a jewel (I purchased these at Dollarama) in the center of each flower using Nailene nail glue. I did the same on my pedi but only on the big toes. I really loved this! The Nailene glue was awesome, it worked really well, the jewels stayed on my toes for over a week until I was ready to take them off! I have never had them stay on longer than a few days with other products. Plus I can use them again, the glue did not ruin them for second use!
Unfortunately, this polish did not want to stay on very well :( I tried a while bunch of tips I have read on other blogs to keep the polish from chipping ( I wanted it to last the whole week), I think it lasted days before I couldn't take the chipping anymore and removed it. One tip I found that worked the best is applying a think layer of clear polish to the tips of your nails every couple of days. I wish that someone can make a neon formula that is not prone to chipping :(
Back to Nailene for a sec, for those who don't know Nailene's Blog : http://nailene-girls.blogspot.com is having another giveaway! Click here for more details.
I have also have an update on my sisters false Nailene nails I applied over 2 weeks ago, she removed them on Saturday. Over all they stuck very well, only one nail fell off (this was on Friday) They wore well while in the humidity, sun, beach and chlorine water while we were on vacation and had minimal tip wear. Removal was fast, easy and painless, a quick soak in some acetone and an orange wood stick to peel the nail off is all that was needed. Any additional glue residue was easily buffed away with the file provided in the kit.
Overall my sister would use them again if needed, I might use them on my next vacation to help the nail polish stick for a longer period of time.
