Disco Ball Nails Step By Step

December 16th, 2020

December 16th, 2020

We’ve gone full on Christmas here at Warpaint Towers.  To go with yesterday’s makeup looks we are sharing Salon System nail expert Jaz Moger‘s Disco Ball inspired nail design.

Jaz created this look using the new Gellux Star Attraction collection, 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 two coats of Gellux Light Natural Builder gel (£11.95 +vat) and cure for 60 seconds between each coat.


Step Two

Next paint a half moon at the cuticle area using Gellux Bright Lights (£11.95 +vat) and cure for 30 seconds.  Follow this with a second coat (you may even need to do a third). This creates the disco ball.


Step Three

Using a dotting tool, do three Gellux Bright Lights dots down the centre of the nail and two either side to create the disco ball reflections.


Step Four

To finish apply a coat of Gellux Base & Top Coat (£11.95 vat), cure and then wipe over with Gellux Prep + Wipe and finish by applying Gellux Nail & Cuticle Oil (£4.35 +vat).


Salon System Gellux is available from wholesalers nationwide.
