Salon System nail expert Caroline Roberts, owner of Nail Fairy, has created this super cute, colourful floral design using Gellux shades.

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.


Step One

Prep the nails and push back the cuticles. Shape and buff the natural nail bed with a grey and yellow buffer. Dust and wipe the nails with Gellux Prep + Wipe (£4.20 +vat) and then apply 2 thin layers of Gellux Builder Gel Rose Pink (£11.95 +vat), curing each layer for 60 seconds. Then lightly buff the nails for a matte look, using a nail brush to remove any dust.


Step Two

Apply two coats of Gellux Cray-Sea (£11.95 +vat) to the index finger. Then, apply two coats of Gellux Shellarious (£11.95 +vat) to the middle finger using a thin liner art brush to create a French tip. Cure for 60 seconds.


Step Three

Using a nail art brush, create brush strokes in a circle to give that petal effect, using Shellarious on the thumb and ring finger and Cray-Sea on the little finger. Cure for 60 seconds.


Step Four

Using a dotting tool, place a dot in the centre of the petals using Gellux Rosie Anna on the thumb and ring finger and apply Gellux Jade’s A Gem (both £11.95 +vat) around the flowers.

On the little finger, apply Jade’s A Gem in the centre of the flowers and Shellarious around the flowers. Cure for 60 seconds.


Step Five

For that glossy finish apply Gellux Shiny Top Coat (£11.95 +vat) and cure for 60 seconds.  Wipe over the nails with Prep + Wipe to remove the sticky residue and oil the cuticles with Gellux Nail & Cuticle Oil (£4.35 +vat).

Salon System Gellux is available from wholesalers nationwide.
