NAILS: Pink Leopard Step by Step

Encourage clients to embrace their “wild side” with this pink leopard design by Salon System nail expert, Rosanna Hatherell.

Here's how you can recreate the animal print look using products from the GELLUX collection…

Step One

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

Buff the nail plate and cleanse nails with GELLUX Prep + Wipe. Apply GELLUX Fast Bond followed by one coat of GELLUX Easy Off Base Coat and cure for 60 seconds. 

Step Two

Using GELLUX Double Dating, apply three coats and cure for 30 seconds (after each coat).

Step Three

Next, use GELLUX Pop Pink to create your splash on the middle and ring finger. Cure for 30 seconds (it's okay for the splashes to be a bit messy around the edges).

Step Four

Then, using a dotting tool and GELLUX Black Onyx, create small leopard print marks on top of your splash and cure for 60 seconds.

Step Five

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