She used 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.
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 Cover Soft Focus (£11.95 +vat) and cure for 30 seconds.
Using the following colours Gellux Vividly Violet, Gellux Butterfly Blue (both £11.95 +vat) and Gellux Stormy (£7.25 +vat) and a large flat nail art brush pick up all colours and drag them across the nail to create your marble ‘backwards C’ shape, cure for 30 seconds.
Apply one coat of Gellux Easy Off Base Coat (£11.95 +vat), cure for 30 seconds and then wipe clean with Gellux Prep + Wipe so nail has no sticky residue left.
Next, paint a thin line of Gellux Stick-It-Glue (£1.35 +vat) tracing out the Pisces symbol and other constellations. When you have traced out the symbols, cure for only 5/10 seconds and then stamp foil onto of the glued area and cure for 30 seconds.
To finish the look, apply a coat of Gellux Super Shiny Top Coat (£11.95 +vat), cure and then wipe over with with Gellux Prep + Wipe. Finally, finish by applying Gellux Nail & Cuticle Oil (£4.35 +vat).
