Find out how to create the look with this step-by-step using the GELLUX range...

Step 1

Prepare the nails. File to shape, push back cuticles and buff nail plate. Cleanse nails with GELLUX Prep + Wipe.

Step 2

Apply GELLUX Fast Bond to nails and allow to dry. Follow with an application of GELLUX Easy Off Base Coat, then cure. 

Step 3

Apply two layers of GELLUX Piggy Pink, curing after each layer. 

Step 4

On a piece of foil, place three drops of GELLUX Easy Off Base Coat, mixing each drop with a very small amount of GELLUX Surf's Up, Gellux You Can Can and GELLUX Peach Perfect, to create three sheer colours.  

Step 5

Dip a detail brush into the GELLUX You Can Can shade and create small, randomly placed petals on the side of each nail, then cure.  

Step 6

Repeat step 5 using GELLUX Peach Perfect and GELLUX Surf's Up, curing after each design is added.

Step 7

Dip a fine liner brush into GELLUX Black Onyx and paint some random petals and dots over the petals created previously, then cure for 60 seconds. 

Step 8

Apply GELLUX Shiny Top Coat and cure. Wipe with Prep + Wipe followed with an application of GELLUX Nail & Cuticle Oil.
