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 Easy Off Base Coat (£11.95 +vat) and cure for 60 seconds.
Using Gellux Double Dating (£11.95 +vat) apply 3 coats and cure for 30 seconds after each coat.
Using Gellux Pop Pink (£11.95 +vat) create your splash on the middle and ring finger and cure for 30 seconds. It is okay for the splashes to be a bit messy around the edges.
Then, using a dotting tool and Gellux Black Onyx (£11.95 +vat) create small Leopard print marks on top of your splash 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 Gellux Prep + Wipe. Finally, finish by applying Gellux Nail & Cuticle Oil (£4.35 +vat).
Salon System Gellux is available from wholesalers nationwide.
