NAILS: Holographic Stars Step by Step

Salon System nail expert, Jaz Moger, talks us through how to recreate these sparkling holographic star nails using products from the GELLUX range…

Step One
Start by prepping the nails and file to a round shape. Push back the cuticle using the Salon System Cuticle Handy Manicure Tool , then remove the cuticle using the GELLUX Erase Cuticle Remover and cuticle clippers.

Next, buff the nail plate and cleanse nails with GELLUX Prep + Wipe. Apply GELLUX Fast Bond followed by one coat of GELLUX Cover Pink Base Coat and cure for 60 seconds.

Step Two
Using a pickup tool, pick up some holographic stars and drop them onto the nails one by one, cure again for 30 seconds.

Step Three
Next, apply two thick coats of GELLUX LED Hard Gel Clear Builder, curing for 60 seconds between each coat. You need to use a builder gel to encapsulate the stars, so that the nails still feel and look super smooth.

Step Four
To finish the look, apply a coat of GELLUX Super Shiny Topcoat cure and then wipe over with GELLUX Prep + Wipe. Finally, finish by applying GELLUX Nail & Cuticle Oil.
