Summer Star Nails Step by Step

September 9th, 2020

September 9th, 2020

As you know, over at Warpaint Towers we are desperate to hang on to summer for as long as possible.  So we were thrilled when Salon System nail expert Jaz Moger sent us this Summer Stars design.

She created this colourful design using Gellux’s new Festival Edit range 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

Start by prepping the nails by filing nails to a round shape.  Push back the cuticle using the Salon System Cuticle Handy Manicure Tool (£4.95 +vat) and remove the cuticle using the Gellux Erase Cuticle Remover (£4.55 +vat) and cuticle clippers.  Buff the nail plate and cleanse nails with Gellux Prep + Wipe (£7.10 +vat).  Apply Gellux Fast Bond (£5.85 +vat) followed by one coat of Gellux Light Pink Builder Gel (£11.95 +vat) and cure for 60 seconds.


Step Two

Using Gellux Headliner (£11.95 +vat), paint one star onto each nail.  This look looks good when the stars are only half on the nail so start painting the star anywhere and imagine you are continuing onto the skin, even draw onto the skin if it is easier and then clean it off before curing for 30 seconds.


Step Three

Do the same again using Gellux Where’s My Welly (£11.95 +vat).  If there’s room to do more than two stars per nail than add another one in, cure nails for 30 seconds.


Step Four

Then, using a file liner brush, outline the stars with Gellux Purely White (£11.95 +vat) and cure for 30 seconds.


Step Five

To finish the look, apply a coat of Gellux Super Shiny Topcoat (£11.95 +vat), cure and then wipe over with Gellux Prep + Wipe.  Finally, finish by applying Gellux Nail & Cuticle Oil (£4.35 +vat).



Salon System Gellux is available from wholesalers nationwide.
