Union Jack Nails – Step by Step

June 2nd, 2022

June 2nd, 2022

Inspired by the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, Abigail Simons, Louella Belle Educator, has created this Union Jack nail art design.

Step One

Paint one coat of Artistic Colour Gloss ‘Bride’ (£12.95 +vat) on to the nail and cure in cure box for 30 seconds.


Step Two

Decant Artistic Colour Gloss ‘Hotzy’ and ‘I Have Connections’ (£12.95 +vat each) onto a pallet and, using Artistic stripping brush ‘Striper’ (£12.95 +vat), draw a cross in Hotzy on to the nail and cure.


Step Three

The Union Jack flag has 8 points so using the stripping brush create half triangles drawing the lines between the cross and cure for 30 seconds.


Step Four

Using I Have Connections draw in triangles between the red lines created creating the Union Jack.  Once happy cure for 30 seconds in the cure box.


Step Five

Once you are happy you can go over the lines with another coat to make the lines bolder, cure for 30 seconds in cure box.


Step Six

Apply Artistic Colour Gloss Glossing Gel (£15.95 +vat) and cure for 30 seconds to achieve that high shine look.


Step 7

Remove the inhibition layer with Artistic Nail Surface Cleanser (£3.00 + vat) and apply Revive Cuticle Oil (£5.94 +vat) to the cuticle, sidewalls and underside of the free edge.


This look is really simple and very quick to achieve and a great way to up-sale your service for the coming jubilee celebrations!
