Nail Art Step by Step: Dreaming of Pink Clouds
Drift away with these pretty pink cloud inspired nails, created by Salon System's nail expert Julie-Anne Larivière using Gellux gel polish, the perfect way to relax…
File the nails to shape, push the cuticles back with the Gellux Cuticle Handy Manicure Tool and gently buff the surface of the nails with a white block.
Thoroughly wipe nails with Gellux Nail + File Antiseptic Spray and a lint free pad. When the nails are dry, apply Fast Bond, and let it dry for 30 seconds. Apply the Gellux Fast Bond and let dry for 30 seconds.
Then apply one very thin layer of the Gellux Gel Builder Gel in Rose Pink, cure for 60 seconds.
Apply a thicker layer of Gellux Builder Gel in Rose Pink making sure you leave the bulk of the product about 1/3 of the way down the nail from the cuticle area to create a nice apex, cure for 60 seconds.
Using a dotting tool dipped in Gellux Purely White, apply dots in the shape of a cloud, do not cure.
Using a nail art brush, join the dots and blend the white down so it creates a smokey effect, cure for 30 seconds.
Using a nail art brush again apply a small amount of Gellux Once and Floral and Gellux Tease Me Teal on the inside of the clouds and blend it downward just like you did with the white, cure for 30 seconds.
Dip a fine brush in Gellux Star Dust and apply a little glitter on the clouds, cure again for 30 seconds.
Finally, apply Gellux Mirror Glaze Top Coat and cure for 60 seconds. Next wipe the nails with Gellux Prep + Wipe and finally apply Gellux Nail & Cuticle Oil.
