The perfect holiday manicure

Thursday, December 9, 2010


By Lesley Ellen Mirza

Nothing finishes off that fabulous party outfit better than the perfect manicure, don’t ya think? But, on the flip-side, nothing looks more trailer-trash than chipped polish, especially if it’s a dark colour. Such a no-no. The solution? An Axxium Soak-off Gel Lacquer mani.

Choose from OPI’s best-selling shades–our pick at the mo’ is definitely Lincoln Park After Dark–and after a little painting and UV-curing, just try and chip those puppies. Not gonna happen. And, if you you really want to get a little creative, visit the lovely ladies at Tips Nail Bar and Spa, where anything goes … well, when it comes to nails: lace overlay, sparkly half moons – just check out Glow magazine’s current holiday issue for some fantastic nail ideas.

An Axxium manicure from Tips Nail Bar and Spa costs $50 and will provide long lasting, chip-proof colour for up to two weeks (ours actually lasted three weeks!). Removal will need to be done in-salon, but that just means you can get another one done!

Let’s make a toast to our nails looking fab throughout the entire holiday season!

I actually had an axxium manicure at The 10 Spot in Leslieville and I loooooooove it! Perfect if you are too busy to do touch-ups. One less thing to worry about, as a working mom I love it!
