NAILS: Valentine's Step by Step

Salon System nail expert Caroline Roberts, owner of Nail Fairy, explains how to recreate this Valentine's nail design using GELLUX products...

Step One 

Prep the nails and push back the cuticles. Shape and buff the natural nail bed with a grey and yellow buffer. Dust and wipe the nails with GELLUX Prep and Wipe and then apply a thin layer of GELLUX Fast Bond.

Step Two

Mix GELLUX Cherry Blossom with GELLUX Purely White for that softer baby pink, applying it to the end of the nail for a French tip on each finger. Curing for 60 seconds. 

Step Three

Using a dotting tool, apply two dots close together using GELLUX Devil Red. Then, use a thin art liner brush to drag the dots down and create a heart on each nail at the top of the French curved line. Cure for 60 seconds.

Step Four

Using GELLUX Devil Red and a dotting tool, apply dots to the French tip for that polka dot effect. Cure for 60 seconds.

Step Five

For that glossy finish, GELLUX Shiny Top Coat apply and set for 60 seconds. Then wipe the sticky residue with GELLUX Prep + Wipe before applying cuticle oil to finish.
