    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!

        does anyone know if they can DO a french manicure with this? if so, i'm all over it for both my fingers and my toes!

        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.

                    i went to nail montage in maple grove. it's a new place in the fountains area.
                    Nail Montage - Services - Axxium Gel Spa Manicure

                    they had good service, it's a nice place and they were very clean. there's a 20% off coupon on the home page of the website, too!
