Firstly, start by prepping the nails by pushing back the cuticle, filing to shape and gently buff the nail.
Remove excess dust and wipe with the Gellux Prep + Wipe.
Then, using Gellux Fast Bond, apply to the nails and let dry. Finally, for the prep apply Gellux Easy Off Base Coat, and cure.
Apply a thin coat of Gellux Chilli Pepper to the pinkie and ring finger and Gellux Truth or Dare to the middle, index and thumb nails. Repeat then cure.
To create the bubble effect, add a drop of washing up liquid to a container and mix with a drop of water then shake the mixture to make the bubbles.
Now apply one coat of the Gellux Chilli Pepper to the index finger (do not cure yet).
Next, using a scoop, apply a blob of bubbles to the nail, and then cure.
The next step is to create a medium heart on the middle finger using Gellux Chilli Pepper. Do not cure.
Then, apply a scoop of the bubble mixture previously mixed to the heart and cure. If needed, gently use a nail file to buff the top layer of the bubbles and dust off.
Using your thin detailing brush, border around your heart detail and all the way around the pinkie and thumb using the Gellux Rosie Gold, and then cure.
Apply Gellux Mirror Glaze Topcoat to all nails, making sure to really get into the bubbles created and then cure. Finally, wipe the nails with Gellux Prep & Wipe and finish with the Gellux Nail & Cuticle Oil. Beautiful!
