Step 1

 

Prepare nail and clean with GELLUX Prep + Wipe, and apply GELLUX Fast Bond. Allow to dry for 60 seconds.

Step 2

Apply GELLUX Easy Off Base Coat, then cure for 30 seconds with LED or for two minutes UV.

Step 3

Apply two coats of GELLUX Loveheart, curing each layer. Put under the lamp for 30 seconds for LED or for two minutes with UV.

Step 4

Using GELLUX Lemon Sherbet, Marshmallow and Parma Violets and a fine brush, paint on love hearts in the different colours and then cure.

Step 5

Outline each heart in GELLUX Purely White, cure, add small dots and then cure again.

Step 6

Apply GELLUX Top Coat, and cure for 60 seconds with LED or three minutes with UV.

Step 7

Wipe off sticky layer with GELLUX Prep & Wipe and apply NAILLUX Cuticle Cream to moisturise the skin around the nails.
