Got lots of compliments on this cheery tangerine-jelly OPI Axxium shade, first concocted by Melissa at Tips Nail Bar, and here applied by Leeanne with a little extra graphic detail. It’s my new spring/summer mani, no surprise given my orange-obsession. Four things you need to know if you want this too:
1) The OPI Axxium orange gel is Y’all Come Back Ya Hear?. Like the Texas Collection polish version, it’s sheer. Really sheer.
2) This tangerine is a combo of Axxium in Alpine Snow as the base so the orange pops, plus three coats of Y’all Come Back Ya Hear?
3) I like a slight translucent finish to my nails (I’m a one-coat girl with OPI Axxium in Cajun Shrimp) because it gives them a jelly-like shine. This combo delivers exactly that.
4) The yellow striping is Hard Candy Just Nails in Splendid.
So who hasn’t tried Axxium yet? (Worth mentioning: Axxium and other soak-off gels do not damage your nails, technicans do, if you have less-than-capable technicians.)
If you’re a fan, what’s your summer shade? It’s okay if it’s Shellac or Gelish or Entity, you can tell me. (Entity Not Off the Rack is my fave for my toes.)
