Wedding Day Manicure

I forgot to post this with my previous Wedding Day FOTD. I did this manicure about a week ago, which was a few days before the actual wedding.

This glittery pink french manicure is actually using the Incoco dry nail polish, which I had first used about a month ago. I am really hard on my nails so my manicures usually last me only a day or two before showing tip wear and/or chipping and peeling. The Incoco system has worked out really great for me since it lasts at least a week. The regular manicure lasted me just about 2 weeks before chipping. As you can see in the picture, even though it's been on me for a week, there really isn't any tip wear or chipping. I have done dishes, cooked, cleaned and scrubbed, even assembled and disassembled the arch for the wedding. It's really amazing to me. You can purchase it online although I made my purchase at a kiosk at Ala Moana Shopping Center.

My nails are quite soft and bend and tear easily. The length which is pictured above, is usually the longest that my nails will grow before tearing off.

NOTE: Today, the day after I took the picture, my middle finger's nail bent and then broke off. It's a good thing that it happened after I took the picture.

kat,
try the "sally hansen Miracle Cure (for severe problems nails)" polish. it seems to work for my endless chipping nails. also, sally hansen Mega Tuff (extra strength nail protector). Both works great for my nails. My nails grow longer now and don't break as easily anymore. You would see some results within a week.
