I will be leaving for my wedding 3 days in advance of the big day. I am planning on getting shallac because I will be at the destination of my wedding for 3 weeks (combined wedding and honeymoon), so that way it will hopefully last for the whole time I am there. My question is, should I go to the salon that I am used to and know they do a good job the day before I leave (4 days before the wedding), or shall I go to the salon at the resort the day before the wedding (no shellac)? My worry about getting it done 4 days in advance is incase it chips, peels, my nails grow out, and everything else that could possibly go wrong. Will going into the ocean/pools effect the nails?
Any advice would be great! Thanks 🙂

IceAndFire: Personally I’d rather go to a salon that I know does a good job a few days before the wedding. A good gel mani should last through (at least most of) your honeymoon.

IceAndFire: Go the day before you go (preferable in the evening) .. what if you do and their aren’t any salons available before you wedding.
I had my nails done 2 days before and they were perfect… Going in the ocean may affect them .. so don’t go in the water until after the wedding…

I would go before I left. I got my nails done on a Friday. We left for Hawaii on Sunday. We were hiking, swimming, everything, we even went shark cage diving. He proposed on Friday, a week after I had my nails done. They held up well through out the week and looked great in our engagement pics.
