Thansk!
Hey Sungoddess, the ones I got are called BioGel. They seem to do the same thing (I posted a pic a couple of pages back). Good luck!

If your nails are short like mine were, you might want to get them done for the first time 3 weeks before you leave. After the 3 weeks, you can go for the refill before you leave and then they should be long enough to do the french manicure, but still not be too long to drive you crazy.

i just got my axxium pedicure done this morning. i it looks great! i got a french and i'm happy with how it turned out. it was more expensive than they'd originally quoted me, so it BETTER last the full time i'm in mexico.

 

my nails were starting to split and break, so i opted to get gel nails instead of the axxium on my hands. i did pink gel with a french. i'll be a good barometer for how long things last. i figured that my resort in mexico won't be able to fix axxium if something breaks, so i went with the safer bet. everything looks great an i'll be in mexico in 24 hours!

Diane, I was just thinking about you, figuring you must be leaving soon! Hope you have an amazing time!

 

My mum is coming to visit at the end of June, so we're going to test out the OPI Axxium together then! Looking forward to it!

Wooo!! congratulations!!! You must be so excited knowing that you will be on a beach with a drink in your hand in less than 2 days! I'm happy for you!!

 

I feel like a completeeee noob but I am still confused about the nails. I called the salon and asked if they did "opi axxium gel nails" and she said yes and told me all about it. So I've booked that -- but after reading what you had done today...are gel nails and opi axxium different? I am getting complete "fake nails" on - I'm not keeping my own and covering them with that lacquer stuff (under the heat lamp).

 

I was quoted about 40 - but I'm just confused about what the difference is.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
