NAILS: Hibiscus French Step by Step


Salon System nail expert Julie-Anne Lariviére has created a Hibiscus French step by step using her new GELLUX Free Spirit collaboration shades. 

Here's how to create the look...

Step One
Prepare nails by pushing back cuticles, trimming excess, shaping the free edge, and buffing the nail plate with a white block. Dust well and wipe thoroughly with Nail+File Spray. Apply Fast Bond, let dry for 30 seconds then apply two coats of Light Natural Builder Gel, cure for 60 seconds in between layers (LED).



Step Two
Create a French tip using Go with The Flow, cure for 30 seconds.


Step Three
Dip a fine liner in Run Wild with Me and create the outlines of the petals for your hibiscus flowers. Do not cure. Using the same fine liner, swipe your brush in a downward motion from the top of the petal to the centre of the flower. Cure.


Step Four
Using the same fine liner, swipe your brush in a downward motion from the top of the petal to the centre of the flower. Cure.



Step Five
Repeat the same process using Glorious & Free, cure.


Step Six
Now dip a fine liner into Be A-Maize-ing and do the same swipe motion as before into the centre of each petal, cure.


Step Seven
Using a sitting tool, apply small dots of Free Spirit and Maple Dreams Come True to the centre of each flower, cure again. Finish with Mirror Glaze Top Coat cure for 60-90 seconds. Wipe the nails with Prep and Wipe and apply cuticle oil.
