I had it done at my favorite nail place, Nails a la Mode, for 20$. (they do Shellac for 17$, BTW, best price around!!).
The application process is the same as the others: base, 2 coats of gel colour (Axxium is in a pot instead of a typical polish bottle), and a top coat. UV light between each layer and at the end if the process. Shiny, perfectly dry nails when you walk out the door.
My nails look fab (super shiny), although I am a bit disappointed that the shade is not as deep as I remember, more pink than red. As for the lasting power, time will tell and so will I. I cannot remember if I updated on Gelish or not but if not…it lasted 2 weeks beautifully, just like Shellac.
