Watercolour Floral Nails Step by Step


Watercolour Florals is one of our favourite upcoming AW19 nail trends – here Salon System nail expert Julie Anne shows us how to get the look with this step by step guide using GELLUX.

Step 1

Prepare the nails. File to shape and push back cuticles and buff nail plate. Cleanse nails with GELLUX Profile Prep + Wipe (£4.05+VAT).

Step 2

Apply GELLUX Fast Bond (£5.85+VAT) to nails and let dry. Apply GELLUX Easy Off Base Coat (£11.95+VAT), cure.

Step 3

Apply two layers of GELLUX Piggy Pink (£7.25+VAT) curing after each layer.

Step 4

On a piece of foil place 3 drops of GELLUX Easy off Base Coat (£11.95+VAT) and mix each drop with a very small amount GELLUX Surf’s Up(£7.25+VAT), GELLUX You Can Can (£7.25+VAT) and GELLUX Peach Perfect (£7.25+VAT) to create 3 sheer colours. 

Step 5

Dip a detail brush into GELLUX You Can Can (£7.25+VAT) shade and create small randomly placed petals on the side of each nail, and cure.

Step 6

Repeat step 5 using the GELLUX Peach Perfect (£7.25+VAT), then repeat again using the GELLUX Surf’s Up (£7.25+VAT), curing after each design is added.

Step 7

Dip a fine liner brush into GELLUX Black Onyx (£11.95+VAT) and paint some random petals and dots over the petals you have created previously, cure for 60 seconds.

Step 8

Apply GELLUX Shiny Top Coat (£11.95+VAT), and cure.

Wipe with Prep&Wipe and apply GELLUX Nail & Cuticle Oil (£4.34+VAT).
