I didn't want to go to Hawaii with bare, boring nails. I also didn't want chipped nails on vacation. The day before our flight I painted my nails with CND vinylux 7 day manicure. I used the color Romantique #142. The color is very similar to Essie's Bubble Bath. It was really easy, I did my nails in the weekly polish and then the top coat. CND vinylux really works!
