Salon System Valentine's Nails Step by Step

Get ready for the month of love with Salon System nail expert Karen Louise, who has created a heart inspired step by step using GELLUX.

Step One

Prepare the nails, file to shape, push back cuticle and gently buff the nail plate. Brush away any dust and wipe over with the GELLUX Prep + Wipe (£7.15+VAT). Apply the GELLUX Fast Bond (£5.85+VAT) and let dry.

Apply a thin layer of GELLUX Builder Gel in Light Pink for 30 seconds and cure.

Step Two

Apply a small drop of GELLUX City Girl (£11.95+VAT) to a nail palette. Then, using a small striper brush, outline the pinkie finger with GELLUX City Girl (£11.95+VAT) but, only halfway around the nail. Thicken this line and keep them sharp. Flash cure and repeat the same process on the index finger.


Step Three

Repeat the same process to the cuticle area on the ring finger, but do not go as high up the side of the nail and keep it thinner along the side wall to about halfway. Flash cure.


Step Four

Now repeat the last step with GELLUX Fri-Yay (£11.95+VAT), GELLUX Pink Punch (£7.25+VAT) and GELLUX Piggy Pink (£7.25+VAT) up one side of the nail and cure for 60 seconds.


Step Five

Next, using your small detailing brush, mirror the colours but create your half heart shape on the clear side of the design on your ring finger. Cure for 60 seconds.


Step Six

On the middle finger, using GELLUX Piggy Pink (£11.95+VAT) create a small French tip extending it slightly more down the side of the nails. Cure for 30 seconds.


Step Seven

On the thumb nail, using GELLUX Fri-Yay (£11.95+VAT) create a thin French Tip and cure for 30 seconds.


Step Eight

Finally, apply the GELLUX Shiny Top Coat (£11.95+VAT), over all the nails. Cure for 60 seconds. Be sure to wipe the nails with GELLUX Prep + Wipe (£7.10+VAT) and apply GELLUX Nail & Cuticle Oil (£4.35 + VAT).
