It's not exactly the same, but I recently tried biogel here in Toronto. I think it's the same idea -- they just paint a clear gel over your real nails to keep them stronger, and the gel sets with a UV light. After 3 weeks, you need to get them filled at the bottom. I just went for my first fill and also got the french manicure -- I'm very happy with it! The white gel is also painted on and set with the UV light so it will not chip or fade.

 

The first appointment cost about $60 CND because I also got a manicure and polish, but then the refill with the french manicure only cost $35. I went to Planet Nails at Yonge & Eglinton, if anyone is interested.

 

I hate the feel of acrylic nails, so I think this is a great option for the wedding. I might try to keep them a little longer for the next fill.

I just discovered a place out here in Halifax to get the OPI Axxium done. It's at a place called Head Shoppe if anyone is from around here and interested. I'm going to try it out closer to summer I think to see how I like it! Very excited about not having to get fake nails!!!

I couldn't find a salon that did the OPI Axxium either. Most salons just did the OPI with acrylic nails. The one that I got was Bio gel... Bio Sculpture Nails - Home

 

So far so good! I'll give an update after 3 weeks.

I love this and have been getting it done for a few months now :)

But, it does take a little longer than a typical mani to get the color off, because you have to soak your nails and then it peels off. Which, also means that if it does start to chip while on vacation, it is near impossible to get off without the solution.

Also, my girlfriend asked her salon in Denver to have it done and was told that they do not offer it because it cracks off too easy with their climate (cold). I thought that was interesting! All in all, it is a great solution to keeping your nails looking fresh!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
