Croc-o-wow! Create these wild Crocodile-inspired nails
Animal print is huge this season and for something a little different, Salon System's nail expert, Julie Anne, has created this stunning Crocodile skin effect nail art, using Gellux gel polish.
Prepare all the nails and wipe over with the Gellux Prep+Wipe. Apply the Gellux Fast Bond and let dry for 30 seconds.
Then apply the Gellux Cover Pink Base Coat, and cure for 30 seconds.
Next, apply two layers of Gellux Daisy Chain and cure between each layer.
Then, start to paint random patches of Gellux Goldmine on each nail and cure.
Apply a very thin layer of Gellux Easy Off Base Coat (do not substitute this, as it will not work). Then, dip a medium liner in Gellux Rush Hour and create the crocodile scales.
Leave a couple of millimeters between each scale to allow room for the gel to bloom. Cure for 30 seconds.
Repeat the last step for all nails, making sure to remember to leave space between the scales to bloom and cure one finger at a time.
Now dip a fine brush or medium liner in Gellux Gold Rush and outline the edges of the crocodile patches, cure again.
Apply Gellux Mirror Glaze Top Coat and cure for 60 seconds. Finally, wipe the nails with Gellux Prep+Wipe and apply Gellux Nail & Cuticle Oil. Wild!
