NAILS: Candy Cane Step by Step


Ideal for your festive manicures, Salon System nail expert Jaz Moger has created this cute candy cane design. Find out how to recreate the look by using the GELLUX collection...

Step One

Prepare the nails by filing to shape, pushing back the cuticle, and buffing the nail plate. Cleanse nails with GELLUX Prep + Wipe and apply GELLUX Fast Bond. Apply a coat of GELLUX Light Pink Builder Gel and cure.


Step Two

Using GELLUX Purely White, and a fine liner nail art brush, paint a French tip. Don't worry about it being too neat as this is a guide. Once drawn, cure for 30 seconds.

Step Three

Next, paint a line down the side of the nail with GELLUX Purely White and cure for 30 seconds.


Step Four

Perfect the candy cane painted and round off its edges with another coat of GELLUX Purely White and cure.


Step Five

Using GELLUX Meteorite, paint little red lines to create the candy cane's stripes.


Step Six

Finish the design by painting two coats of GELLUX Super Shiny topcoat and cure between each layer. Once cured, wipe over the nails with GELLUX Prep + Wipe and oil the cuticles.
