You guys, nail wraps are going to be in the next Vegan Cuts beauty box.

When I saw that in the teaser video today, I got almost as excited as Strummer.

Ooh, I bought a couple of packets of the NCLA wraps in L.A but am yet to wear them. I am still so tempted to order the Beauty Box :)

Baps & Allular - nice nails!

Here's what I wore this week

My nails are in terrible shape. I'm not even sure what to do for them. I realized it wasn't the shellac/gel polish that was the issue so much as the way it's removed. Now my nails are like white and peel-y towards the tips. Down far enough where I can't just cut it off. I've been keeping them bare and using lotion and oil. Anyone have any tips?

Cuticle oil twice a day will help. Also use a buffer and just very very gently buff off the peely bits. Don't go crazy just take off the peelage. Also, a nail strengthener or even just clear polish will help, just something to give a bit of extra strength.
How did they remove them? Shellac application and removal shouldn't cause any damage to your nails if it's done by a properly trained tech (especially if you use solar oil twice a day when it's on) - it's one of their major selling points and one of the reasons I'm thinking of swapping to it.

I now have peely nail tips too and no idea why, I've never had this before. The only thing I did different from normal was using Zoya+ remover (instead of SpaRitual) to take off the previous polish and a Sinful Colors polish (but over Orly bonder as usual). Where my polish chipped off (which it did in parts after two days) it seems it took a bit of nail layer with it - quite worrying. Now I've removed the polish (with SpaRitual) I can see even where the nail polish chipped off, on the bits where the nails haven't peeled off, they are separating and starting to peel.

And I just banged a nail which looked okay and it shattered like bus stop glass - what the fizzle? Could is be purely from wearing polish without a day off for a couple of months? Do I need to give my nails a rest? I feel like I now need polish on to seal the flakes and protect them from flaking more!

Not wearing nail polish for more than a few days seems to absolutely kill my nails. My nails are breaking now because they've been naked for a couple of weeks. I need more nail polish colours!

I think my nails are better when I keep polish on and they get worse when I let polish chip and then the tips get extra peely/flaky. Have you tried something like Nubar Nu Nail? I like wearing that when I'm not wearing polish :)

Birthday nails!

And I did a polish swap with fishgirl, her parcel arrived today, it's awesome!

Happy birthday Kitteh! No, I don't use a nail strengthener, I probably should. What's everyone's favourites? I've always had weak nails, but they actually got a bit better when I went vegan! I decided to save my nails with one of my favourite combos: black (I also like to use navy blue) with a layer of Wet n Wild Teal of Fortune on top. It creates a deep tealy emerald glittery colour. I tend to find the ToF too bright on its own.

Happy birthday, kitteh! I love the stripey nails.

I'm trying to figure out what polish to wear for my weekend camping trip. Normally I would just go without, but ever since the yellow I had on, there's those lovely stains and I don't feel like soaking in H2O2. I'm going to be doing a warrior dash, so I'll be getting filthy. Maybe a nice dark blue so the dirt under my nails won't show!

Warrior Dash!!!! That's so exciting.

I've clipped mine all the way down, now I just have to get with the strengthener and oiling. The bigger Whole Foods that should have the No Miss (though now I can't remember if I saw it the last time I was there) also has Gardein Chickn Sliders, so I'll probably be headed back there soon. I wish I could remember; they may have replaced their No Miss with Mineral Fusion stuff.

Also, kitteh, LOVE the birthday nails. Happy Birthday!!

I'm trying out the Vinylux colour I bought. Put it on last night and the formula is lovely, although as a metallic it does show every single dent and ridge. It was completely dry in less than 10 minutes (I believe CND say 8.5 mins) and touch dry in under a minute.

I normally get 1-2 days wear out of polish so I'll let you guys know how I get on with this one. This colour is Locket Love. If I like it I'm definitely buying more.

I'm really jealous of all you Australians and New Zealanders, because these polishes look fricking awesome.

okay so at a sally in town they were having clearance where there were a bunch of polishes for half off the reduced price. I got orly's beautiful disaster, which was marked at $3.99 for $1.70 with tax. WOO. it's a purpley red awesomeness. http://www.thepolishaholic.com/2013/05/ ... ction.html

I just found a Zoya promo code - CAMO - that ends today, but if you spend $32 you get 4 polishes from their new fall collection (Louise, Hunter, Pepper, and Flynn) free with free shipping. I think I might take advantage of it, since I wanted 3 of those 4 polishes anyway. Just a heads up!

Thanks for the b'day wishes <3

Baps - looking forward to hearing what you think of CND, the one you're wearing is pretty

Andi - love that colour!

They do look lovely and at first I was a bit put off by the price ($17) because I won't pay that for Zoya/Orly but the fact that they state several times that they are cruelty free, vegan, and Aussie made makes me want to support them :)

The vinylux is chipped. It chipped Saturday and I put it on Thursday night.

However, I did just kind of slap it on and didn't do the full prep that you're supposed to do first. So next time I take my Gelicure off (that I'm gonna have to do for my bro's wedding this week), I will try it again, but properly. See if it lasts the week.
