Pink Leopard Nails – step by step

Salon System nail expert Rosanna Hatherell has created pink leopard 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.

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 one coat of Gellux Easy Off Base Coat (£11.95 +vat) and cure for 60 seconds.


Step Two

Using Gellux Double Dating (£11.95 +vat) apply 3 coats and cure for 30 seconds after each coat.


Step Three

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.


Step Four

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.


Step Five

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.
