After a few hours it should be fine. I've found pedicures can last a long time. Mine doesn't usually start to chip until like a month after, at which point new nail has grown making that line. I'm also known for my manicures staying. Usually my friends ruin their's within hours but somehow mine stay perfect for 1.5-2 weeks even doing horse stuff, washing dishes, etc. I really don't know how though. I usually make an effort for the first 5 days or so but after that I don't think about it anymore but it stays anyway.
