I know weird, but I've never been in salt water. If I get red nails, will they start chipping cause I'm in salt water a lot? What does everyone do about their manicure/pedicure when they take a 7 day cruise?
If I bother with polish, I use a very light pink tone. Then, I pretty much ignore it. A friend went with us once with dark red nails and had to have her manicure redone after a few days. I couldn't see that there was even a chip in her polish, but to each their own. I refuse to spend time/money/energy on a manicure at sea.
Salt water, no, but beware of sunscreen! In the summer, I sunscreen 20 kids at daycare, at least twice a day. I have taken to wearing surgical gloves to do so, because the sunscreen eats away at any polish (and I only wear clear or pale pink!). Makes you wonder what we're slathering on our skin doesn't it, if it can take off nail polish?!!
