Perfect DW Manicure - OPI Axxium!

Recommended Posts

i tried a new place for my spring mani/pedi and they have this at that salon. they offered it for my mani but not my pedi, so i'm glad to find out here that it works for pedis too! i have been thinking about getting a pedi done with the axiom, so this answered my questions about if it works/lasts as well on the toes. thanks, ladies! sign me up for this!

That's what I LOVE about this forum! So many great ideas that I wouldn't have considered. This is the perfect solution for me - I'm an RN and I can't get acrylics. I really like the french tip look even though Bubble Bath has been officially my favorite OPI color for months! (I take my own bottle to the salon with me.) I will definitely be on the lookout for a spot in L.A. to get this done!smile123.gif

I have seen this popping up everywhere all of a sudden.

I was thinking about trying it before we go on vacay but my only concern is my nails after it comes off.

I have pretty thin nails that break so easily if i dont stay on top of them, keep them fairly short. I've finally gotten them to a good place though so I'm worried of damage when this stuff soaks off.

Anyone had any issues with that??

Does this give your nails length or just make them thicker...sorry I'm a nail noob. Being a nurse for so long & not being able to wear nails I just never keep up : )

it's supposed to make them a little thicker and stronger so they can grow out better.

 

has anyone had them removed? it sounds like they're not supposed to damage your natural nails, but i'm curious about anyone's experience with them.

 

i called my salon yesterday and they DO offer both manis and pedis with the axxium, and they charge $100 for both ($40 mani/$60 pedi) and say to plan for an hour and a half.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
