If you don’t have Gellux products to hand 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.
Thoroughly wipe nails with Gellux Nail + File Cleansing Spray (£6.95 +vat) and a lint free pad. When the nails are dry, apply Gellux Fast Bond (£5.85 +vat) and let dry for 30 seconds. Then apply one very thin layer of the Gellux Builder Gel in Light Pink (£11.95 +vat), curing for 60 seconds between each coat.
I like to get all of the plain nails done and cured and then I can focus on the nail art nail. Paint 2-3 coats of Gellux Wild Style (£11.95 +vat) on the little finger and 2-3 coats of It’s An Attitude (£11.95 +vat) on the index and middle finger, curing between each layer. Paint one coat of yellow on the ring finger and cure.
Using a fine liner nail art brush and Wild Style, paint a wiggly line down the middle of the nail.
Fill in the right side of the wiggly line with Wild Style, and cure for 30 seconds..
Fill in the other side with It’s An Attitude, and cure for 30 seconds.
Using a dotting tool, do the two dots on either side of the colour and cure for 30 seconds.
Finally, apply Gellux Clear Base & Top Coat (£11.95 +vat) and cure again. Wipe nails with Gellux Prep + Wipe (£7.10 +vat) and apply Gellux Nail & Cuticle Oil (£4.35 +vat) to finish your Yin Yang nails.
