Are those little Sally Girl nail polishes at Sally Beauty vegan?

I have a feeling the Sally brand has been mentioned in here or the brands thread but, Blondie, but I don't remember, sorry!

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.

I felt similarly about the Dazzle Dry system, but I think I did do it properly and it still chipped on me - I have a feeling my nails make everything chip :)

I have been on such a nail art kick lately. I bought some stamping kits online, THEN I went to the county fair, and they had a Konad booth! the lady gave me a lesson :)

(Warning, bad cell phone pics)

here are the stamps I did over the weekend. Not anywhere close to perfect, but not bad at a distance. I got a ton of compliments. The pink and purple was pretty cool together, and the holo glitter helped cover up the smears. Unfortunately, they chipped like the night I did them. Bad polish I think. I was a China Glaze, the 'hardness' kind. I don't have good luck with that stuff. Probably why it was discounted, because it sucks asparagus

Image

Then on Sunday I got kinda lazy, and was watching Dexter, and did this beautiful Monroe's Red from Orly (I think) and did this cool glitter over it. It reminds me of blood splatter. I'm really digging it, and it is Friday and only barely chipping! The pics do NOT do it justice. I keep looking at them all week, they look really cool.

i've been wearing grey polish the past couple of weeks. i'm calling it my mourning period and my kitty was dark grey, so, yeah, just bear with me. i did a zoya kelly mani/pedi the first week, and then i switched to zoya carey on my fingers this week.

i think i might do something neutral/nude-ish on both fingers and toes for next week, because i'm going on vacation in the middle and i'm not sure i'll be able to fix chips and crepe while i'm away. so if i pick something really light, at least they'll be less noticeable if they happen. trying to decide between zoya pandora, zoya pasha, or BL yummy mummy.

A couple of weeks ago, I moved to the paint department at work, so I spend most of my day mixing paint. Not great for keeping a clean mani! However, I've discovered that the more colors I have on my nails, the less noticeable the random house paint on my nails will be. Maybe I'll do a splatter mani - that would fit right in!

So I'm back to growing my nails out once again, it didn't really happen on purpose, I kind of looked down one day and said 'hey, my nails are long'. I'm worried about them chipping and such though which always eventually happens when I grow them out. Any tips on having strong nails?

thanks, Kitteh and lobsterrific, i appreciate it. <3

i'm wearing a mani/pedi in zoya pasha this week, in an effort to look polished but also somewhat mask chips if tragedy strikes on vacay.

Woo I found a place fairly close to me that sells Zoya. This is both wonderful and awful (for my wallet).

My nails are very strong, and grow very fast. Some might be genetic luck (my mother and grandmother had amazing nails) but I also use a vitamin E cuticle oil every time I do my nails. So at least once a week. I rub it on each nail at the cuticle, kind of massage it in.

Whenever I have a girlfriend over, and I happen to be doing my nails, they also do theirs (I have quite a collection!). I always tell them to do the oil thing, and they mention to me later how much better their nails were that week.

So try it! it cant hurt. I have special cuticle oil, but regular vitamin E oil would work well too. My mom and I would use the gel capsules (pre vegan) and break them open and use that.

I started using argan oil on my nails every time I do my nails and it's been working pretty well. I have thin nails that chip/tear fairly easily.

The only reason I chose to use argan oil is because I already had a bottle sitting around (I use it on my hair). I'm sure other oils work, too.

I agree. I love the big flecks!

So this summer I just started getting interested in nail polish. I have a ton of gift cards for department stores at which I never really have a need to shop, so I've slowly been turning them into polish.

My question is what rules do you have, if any, for what is appropriate for work? I'm asking because although my work place is casual, people are really snobby about polish/fashion in general to a degree that I can't keep up (just not that interested). I would say most people at my work place, like 85% or more, have their nails done at a salon one a week.

Anyway, I think that I could wear ANY cream no matter what the color as long as it wasn't chipping. My boss wears creams in all kinds of nontraditional colors so no worry there. I'm not so sure about shimmers and glitters? What do you guys think? Are shimmers and glitters not a good daytime look? What about holos?

I'm just interested in how people decide what is appropriate when the rules are not clearly stated.

My former job had no real dress code, so I wore any polish I wanted. No one ever even noticed and if they did, I never heard 'WHOA YOUR NAILS ARE SPARKLY'.

Yeah, I work at a fairly conservative work place but people wear all sorts of nail polish.

Although I work from home these days, when I worked in an office where we had to be dressed up all the time I think that I could have gotten away with wearing anything that I felt comfortable in.

I could pretty much go to work in pyjamas and I don't think my boss would care so I wear whatever I like on my nails. But yeah glitter is always appropriate. ALWAYS. :)

I save what I consider to be funky-colored polish for my toes. I tend towards the more conservative colors anyway, though, so I might not be the best example.

Have you guys heard about using vinegar to make your mani last longer? I just saw this post with test photos (5-day vinegar vs no vinegar) and it's pretty impressive. My only thought is that I know I read somewhere else that using alcohol before painting also works.

That is really interesting! I'll give it a shot next time I paint my nails - the worst that can happen is nothing.

I'm currently wearing a full mani of the NCLA Fairy Floss wraps that came in my last Vegan Cuts beauty box. I'm not great at putting on nail wraps, apparently, but they still look okay-ish and this particular design is just adorable.
