The perfect holiday manicure


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!
