Nail Art Step by Step: Sparkling Abstract Swirls
Raise spirits and start 2021 with sparkling abstract nail art. Follow Karen Louise's Valentine's step-by-step ‘how to', where she uses Salon System Gellux Gellux Star Attraction gel polishes.
Prepare the nails, file to shape, push back cuticle and gently buff the nail plate. Brush away any dust and wipe over with the Gellux Prep + Wipe.
Apply the Gellux Fast Bond to nails and let dry. Then apply a thin coat of Gellux Cover Easy Off Base Coat to the nails and cure.
On the index and middle finger apply a thin coat of Gellux Spotlight then to the remaining three nails apply Gellux Bright Lights and cure.
Repeat this for the second coat, making sure to cap the edges and cure for 30 seconds.
Now, using Gellux Fabulous Darling drop a small amount onto a nail art palette. Using a thin detailing brush, create your swirly design over the index and middle finger and then fill it in and cure for 30 seconds.
Now on the ring finger, create the same design as the middle except this time do not fill in in-between, so it is just the outline using Gellux Fabulous Darling. Then, do the same for the pinky finger and match it to the index finger.
Next, on the thumb create an outline and fill it in design, cure for 60 seconds.
Finally, apply the Gellux Shiny Top Coat, making sure to cap the free edge, and cure. Next wipe the nails with Gellux Prep + Wipe and apply Gellux Nail & Cuticle Oil.
