Perfect DW Manicure - OPI Axxium!

Recommended Posts

I just go this done for the second time yesterday. The first time it lasted 17 days. This one is clipping but I was painting and cleaning last night so that is probably why. I think as long as you ask for the OPI Axxium you should be ok. I just ask for the OPI Axxium manicure.

 

I keep hearing it makes your nails stronger and helps them grow so I am going to try and continue the manicure through out the summer till my wedding in October. And I will make sure I get it done the day before I leave.

Uhh!! I need help.

So I booked my nail appointment about 2 weeks ago - for the Opi Axxium gel nails. Fine, the girl said no problem and they could do french tips. I got called tonight saying they can't - they don't do those lol.

SO I'm back to square one -- she recommended I get the acrilyc nails, but I have heard bad things about them, and how they chip fast etc.

 

Any advice on how I should proceed? I can't find anywhere else that does them in my area. She also suggested I just grow them and get a regular oxi manicure with the french tips and then under the light. But, my nails don't grow very well.

I got the biogel and it seems to be the same thing. I got the french manicure and it lasts about 3 weeks, no chipping or breaking. I went to Planet Nails at Yonge & Eglinton, if that helps (not sure if you're in Toronto).

No I'm not -- but is that the one where they just put a gel over your own nails and then put it under the UV light? She told me about it, but my nails don't get long enough for me to get that.

 

Is that the one you had? (i.e not fake nails at all)

Yeah, pretty much. I wasn't able to find the OPI Axxium either and I hate acrylic nails. My nails were short the first time I went, so I couldn't get the french manicure. But by the time the 3 weeks went by for a refill, they grew to a nice length and that's when I got the first french manicure. The white tips are not nail polish-- it is a white gel that they put on, and then a clear gel, and then they set both with the UV light. The gel makes your nails stronger so that they don't break (I could never grow my nails either). I posted a picture on page 3 of this thread when I went for my first refill and french manicure: http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...16/index3.html

Good luck!

Thanks! I'm sorry -- I feel like you've repeated this for me 100 times! lol..

I'm just such a noob to this stuff -- I kept my appointment, and I'll either get the acrilycs or the gel like you wrote about above!

 

Thanks!

Great thread! I LOVE OPI Axxium!

 

I have had it done about 4 times now after listening to my hair stylist about how wonderful it is. She was right! I have told everyone I know about this!

 

If you are looking for something other then fake nails this is it. I am really hard on my nails and it lasts. I don't know if I will ever bother to paint my nails on my own again. It seems like 3 days later and they chip. My mom and aunt both plan on having this done before leaving for the wedding!
