Vacation Nails

Recently my husband and I spent a week in the U.S. Virgin Islands (St Thomas), and I thought I would show you some pics from our vacation as well as my mani. Unfortunately, my nails only lasted about two days. They started to peel. I normally don't have that problem, so I assume its from the salt water. I ended up going to the spa to get my nails repainted. No way I was going to spend the rest of the week with half bare and half painted nails. 

Below is what I used on each nail. I started with a base coat and then stamped each nail with Konad White stamping polish and a dot pattern from DRK-A stamping Plate as a template. I used a dotting tool to add the colored dots.

Pinky- base color: Girly Bits Banana Hammock, dots: Sinful Colors Cream Pink and Konad White
Ring- base color: Sinful Colors Cream Pink, dots: Sinful Colors Rain Storm and Konad White
Middle- base color: Sinful Colors Innocent, dots: Sinful Colors Amethyst and Konad White
Pointer- base color: Sinful Colors Rain Storm, dots: Konad White and Konad Yellow
Thumb (not pictured): base color- Sinful Colors Amethyst, dots: Sinful Colors Innocent and Konad White

I love this manicure! Shame it peeled so quickly though. My holiday manicure had to last 11 days and although it chipped, a lot, and all my nail jewels ended up falling off, I couldn't repaint my nails until day 12! Torture lol

I love this mani so much! It is so fun and perfect for a vacation. Thanks for sharing your vacation picture, the two of you are adorable together! <3 I loved St. Thomas so much when I was there 20 years ago.

I LOVE St Thomas! We went snorkeling in Turtle Cove when we went and it was amazing!

I think the only time I would do gel nails would be for vacation. I can't stand chipped polish, but also can't be bothered to paint my nails on vaca.

Your nails looked cute though!

Super cute mani :) I'm not a big fan of polka dots, but I love the fact that you used many color combinations.
