Salon System nail expert Rosanna Hatherell has created spooky Hallowe’en nail design using Gellux.
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 squoval shape. Push back the cuticle using the Salon System Cuticle Handy Manicure Tool (£4.95 +vat) and remove the cuticle using Gellux Erase Cuticle Remover (£4.55 +vat) and cuticle clippers. Buff the nail plate and cleanse with Gellux Prep + Wipe (£4.35 +vat). Apply Gellux Builder Gel Rose Pink (£11.95 +vat) to all nails and cure for 30 seconds.
Apply three coats of Gellux Black Onyx and Gellux Dare To Wear (£11.95 +vat each) alternating across the nails and cure for 30 seconds in between each coat.
Using Gellux Purely White (£11.95 +vat) and a thin nail art, brush create lines horizontally across the black nails to mimic mummy clothes and cure for 30 seconds. Leaving a gap at the top.
Using a dotting tool and Black Onyx and Purely White, in the gaps that were left at the top, paint two medium size white dots and cure for 30 seconds and then two small black dots onto to create the mummy’s eyes. Cure for 30 seconds.
Using a dotting tool and Black Onyx on the green nails paint the Frankenstein scars. Cure for 30 seconds
Apply one coat of Gellux Shiny Top Coat (£11.95 +vat) and cure for 30 seconds. Wipe off the sticky residue with Gellux Prep + Wipe and finish by applying Gellux Nail & Cuticle Oil (£4.35 +vat).
Salon System Gellux is available from wholesalers nationwide.
