No Chips with the OPI Axxium Gel Manicure?

Chelsea Rae Simmons | Beauty | Tuesday, 13 April 2010
Pink Rock Candy, Chelsea Rae Simmons, OPI Axxium Soak-off Gel Lacquer System Day 3

Every other Sunday, I have mommy-daughter time at the nail salon. I usually get a $30 mani/pedi, while my mom gets the full shebang— she pays, so I try to keep it cheap. However, last Sunday, my darling mom insisted I try the OPI Axxium Soak-off Gel Lacquer System on both my figures and my toes.

Her reasoning, I’m very hard on my nails and tend to chip them within the first few days. The system, in her mind, will remedy this situation, but all I could think about was the cost, of which I’m still unsure.

So, I spent two hours getting layer after layer after layer of hot pink, Strawberry Margarita, gel lacquer applied to the nails on my figures and toes with a UV lamp drying cycle in between each layer. The process was quite obviously time consuming, and I couldn’t help feeling bad for the perfectionist nail technician who worked his butt off applying the coats. By the end of the process, I wasn’t sure whether I should have given him a hug or bought him a beer.

Despite the time it took, my nails look pretty and, hopefully, will last for about two weeks without a single chip— if I’m really good, I might even be able to stretch it to three weeks.

The OPI Axxium Soak-off Gel Lacquer System comes in its top selling colors including my favorites, Cajun Shrimp and Russian Navy.

It’s day three, and not a chip in sight, we’ll see what happens by day 10.

p.s. Danielle from The Style and Beauty Doctor tried it in February and it was a success!

    I just fingered a bottle of perky pink nail polish like yours yesterday. Didn't get it. Should have. Your nails are awesome. Now I'm sure – I'll go for pink too.

    I'm usually not a pink person, but it was just calling my name. It was so fun and bubble gummy!
