We love a bit of cow print so when we saw Salon System nail expert Julie-Anne Larivière‘s nail design we just had to share it.

She created this fabulous 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

File the nails to shape, push the cuticles back with the Gellux Cuticle Handy Manicure Tool (£6.95 +vat) and gently buff the surface of the nails with a white block.

Thoroughly wipe nails with Gellux Nail + File Antiseptic Spray (£6.95 +vat) and a lint free pad.  When the nails are dry apply Gellux Fast Bond (£5.85 +vat).  Let dry for 30 seconds.  Then apply one very thin layer of Gellux Builder Gel in Light Pink (£11.95 +vat) one thin layer, then one thicker making sure to build an apex.  Cure in between coats for 30 seconds.


Step Two

Using Gellux Purely White (£11.95 +vat), swipe the brush quickly onto each nail to create a paint stroke effect, cure for 30 seconds.


Step Three

Next, dip a large dotting tool into Gellux Choco-Latte (£11.95 +vat) and create the cow print on random areas of the nails.  Cure for 30 seconds.


Step Four

Then, dip a thin nail art brush into Gellux Bare Necessities (£11.95 +vat) and add highlights to some of the cow patches.  Cure for 60 seconds.


Step Five

Finally, apply the Gellux Matte Base & Top Coat (£11.95 +vat) and cure for 60 – 90 seconds. Next wipe the nails with Gellux Prep + Wipe (£7.10 +vat) and apply Gellux Nail & Cuticle Oil (£4.35 +vat).
