Vacation nails

This is the manicure that actually supposed to be my vacation manicure. Unfortunately it lived a day - by the evening of our first day, it started to come off with big chips and i had to remake it.
i did not used color lock system on this one. Next manicure i made - and used color locks system lived a day too, and all the other polishes with or without top coat or design lived only hours :(
So in fact i don't blame products, but climate! it is super wet where, and probably this is how my nails reacts to the humidity - the polish just comes of in a matter of hours - no matter what i use. I gave up after couple manicures and just cut my nails short and used simple Zoya french polish - one coat, which i had to renew every now and then since it was chipping too, but worked best of all other polishes i tried. So this is a tropical reality - it delivers the fun, but sacrifices manicures.
However i used color lock system for pedicure, but with other then Zoya brand - and i would say it did B+ ,because i did not have to remake my pedicure everyday. In fact it almost made it, started chipping really bad only last day.


  1. Those nails are so cute, they look like great nails to sport during a vacation!

  2. How cute though...I love those leaves! Sorry it didn't last long. :-(

  3. I did something similar to this, You did such an awesome job! You are so good at nail art.

  4. wow! such a pretty design! <3
    too bad it didn't last very long :(

  5. It's a shame you couldn't ask someone who lived there how they kept their polish on. Did you bring many polishes and things with you? The manicure was cute. We get to enjoy it.
