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.
