Banish the weekend lockdown blues with a fabulous nail design. Salon System nail expert Karen Louise created this super colourful design using the Gellux Mini 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.
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. Brush away any dust and wipe over with Gellux Prep + Wipe (£7.10 +vat). When the nails are dry apply Gellux Fast Bond (£5.85 +vat) and let dry. Then apply a thin coat of Gellux Builder Gel in Light Pink (£11.95 +vat) and cure.
On each finger paint a lozenge shape in centre of the nail in different colours. On the thumb nail and ring finger Gellux Pink Punch, index finger Gellux Lavish Lilac, middle finger Gellux Once And Floral, and on the pinkie Gellux Tease Me Teal (all £7.95 +vat).
Using a line brush apply a narrow band of contrasting colour around the edge of the nail. On the thumb nail Gellux Lavish Lilac, index finger Gellux Once And Floral, middle and pinkie fingers Gellux Pink Punch and on the ring finger Gellux Tease Me Teal. Cure for 30 seconds.
Finally, apply Gellux Shiny Top Coat (£11.95 +vat) making sure to cap the free edge and cure for 60 – 90 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.
