To tie in with our #ArtAndMakeup challenge we asked Salon System nail expert Julie-Anne Larivière to create a themed nail look.  Here’s what she designed.

She created this beautiful design using Gellux but if you don’t have Gellux products to hand then you can substitute them for others.  If you are using non-gel polish, remember to use a good base coat and to let each coat set fully before moving on to the next step.


Step One

Prepare the nails and wipe over with the Gellux Prep + Wipe (£7.10 +vat).  Apply the Gellux Fast Bond (£5.85 +vat) and let dry for 30 seconds.  Then apply the Gellux Cover Pink Base (£11.95 +vat), and cure for 30 seconds.

Step Two

Apply one coat of Gellux Frosty (£11.95 +vat), and cure.


Step Three

Using a makeup sponge applicator, or nail art sponge brush, dab some Gellux Stormy (£7.25 +vat) and Gellux Mermaid (£11.95 +vat) randomly onto the nails, and cure


 Step Four

Apply another thin coat of Gellux Frosty and cure.


Step Five

Using a thin nail art brush dip it in to Gellux Prep + Wipe, brush along those lines to blur them a little, cure for 30 seconds.


Step Six

Onto a paint palette or piece of foil, mix some Gellux Frosty with a very small amount of Gellux Mermaid to create a sheer light blue.  Paint this on all nails using a gel brush.  Cure all nails for 60 seconds.


Step 7

Repeat steps 6 and 7 on all nails, cure for 60 seconds.

Apply some holographic foil to some random areas of the nails


Step 8

Finally, apply the Gellux Matte Base & Top Coat (£11.95 +vat) and cure for 60 seconds.  Next wipe the nails with Gellux Prep + Wipe and apply Gellux Nail & Cuticle Oil (£4.35 +vat).

Salon System Gellux is available from wholesalers nationwide.
