Salon System nail expert Julie-Anne Larivière has created a floral step by step using Gellux’s Ready to Rock collection. Perfect for summer – when it returns!
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.
Prepare the nails by pushing back cuticles, trimming excess, shaping the free edge, and buffing the nail plate with a white block. Dust well and wipe thoroughly with Gellux Nail + File Cleansing Spray (£6.95 +vat). Apply Gellux Gel Polish Fast Bond (£5.85 +vat), let dry for 30 seconds then apply two layers of Gellux Light Pink Builder Gel (£11.95 +cat). Cure for 60 seconds in between layers
With a pinhead dotting tool dipped in Gellux Dare to Wear (£11.95 +vat), create a diagonal row of dots at the base of the nails, spacing them out evenly, do not cure
Now, repeat the same process using Gellux Shout It Out, Wow Factor, It’s an Attitude and Wild Style (all £11.95 +vat) until you have covered the whole nail. Cure for 30 seconds.
Then, using a large dotting tool dipped in It’s An Attitude, paint a large dot on the corners of each nail, cure.
Dip the same dotting tool into Wild Style and paint five dots around the yellow ones previously created. Do not cure.
Using a fine liner, connect the dots to the centre to create the petals. Cure again for 30 seconds.
Dip the fine liner in to Gellux Keep It Real (£11.95 +vat) and add a line in the centre of each petal and some small dots for extra effect. Cure for 60 seconds.
Apply Gellux Mirror Glaze Top Coat (£11.95 +vat), curing for 60-90 seconds in between layers. Wipe with Gellux Prep + Wipe (£7.10 +vat) and apply Gellux Nail & Cuticle Oil (£4.35 +vat).
Salon System Gellux is available from wholesalers nationwide.
