Lincoln Park After Dark

I went to get a mani-pedi during lunch today to reward myself for sticking to my diet and exercise plan everyday since we started on Jan 4th. I'm also prepping for my trip to South Beach next weekend too!

Now, I know you must be thinking, why would you get a manicure this early, it will surly chip and fade before next Friday. Not so fast my friends, it's a new system called Axxium Gel by OPI. I read about it on Lis Loves Blog, and decided I must try it for myself!
My manicure should now last 2 weeks... I sure hope it does because I have a lot going on in the next 2 weeks and redoing my manicure isn't one of them!
I also went dark for the first time in my life. I am more of a french manicure and red pedicure kinda girl. This combo usually looked quite lovely with my Florida suntan, but I do have to say that Lincoln Park After Dark seems to compliment my Mid-Atlantic paleness very well.
I hope everyone has a lovely weekend, and I will update you next week on the durability of this manicure.

Hi, Sarah Beth! Where did you get your mani? I've been looking for a place in VA/DC that does the Axxium gel. Hope you're having a good weekend!

Hi Sarah! I started going dark with my mani and pedi over a year ago... and I find that everytime I try a new color I like it better than the one I had last. My current fav is "Par le vous OPI" its like a medium purple shade. I feel I can do crazy colors as long as their matte and not glittery.
