Salon System nail expert Rosanna Hatherell has created an abstract mini egg inspired nail design that you can recreate at home.
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 Gellux Purely White and the brush from the polish create one brush stroke on each nail and cure for 30 seconds.
Using Gellux Headliner repeat 2 and cure for 30 seconds.
Using Gellux Aholahonolulu repeat step 2 in the left over gaps and cure for 30 seconds.
Using Gellux Black Onyx and a small dotting tool creating the black markings you’d find on a mini egg and cure for 60 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).
Salon System Gellux is available from wholesalers nationwide.
