This afternoon I took part in the OPI A-Team Advanced Axxium Workshop with the OPI Educatiors Vu & Robert Nguyen. It was an amazing class/workshop and I learnt so much about how the Axxium gels can be used in different ways. We could ask lots of questions and learnt many techniques for designing nail art - both simple and intricate. I am going to need to practice lots - but there are some really simple ways to embellish simple nails without it taking too long, but I hope to get the opportunity to also practice the more detailed nails!! I need to practise my tiger stripes and swirls more - swirls I am really struggling with - my clients will need to be very supple!
I am looking forward to creating some great designs now having been able to learn some basics that can be applied to designs. I am hoping to be able to transfer some of these ideas to both lacquer and Shellac applications.
I would really suggest all gel users to look into a nail art course as it is so much more diverse that lacquer and you can create many designs and wipe it off until it is perfect!
Anyway - back off to practice!
