Last week I told you about a fairly new manicure technique that promises 2 weeks of fabulous nails sans chipping or smudging called OPI Axxium Gel Manicure. And as promised, here’s my update.
I can’t say that I hate this, but I also can’t say that I love it. The day after I got the OPI Axxium Gel Manicure, one finger that had a bit too much gel on it wound up peeling off the very next day. I got it fixed and all was well. But then a few days after that, one nail chipped and then two other nails peeled right off. No bueno. My right hand is intact though (not sure why seeing as how I’m right-handed). I’m sure the salon where I got them done would fix them with no issue, but that would have required me to actually go there and get them fixed…lol.
Perhaps I’m a glutton for punishment because I’m actually going to try them out again because I do love the idea of them. Maybe my first time was just a fluke? I’ll keep you posted.
*UPDATE*** The second time is the charm! Check out my updated review: OPI Axxium Gel Manicure: An Update–It WORKS!. This will now be my staple manicure until I get tired of it…lol.
