Nail Art Step by Step: Christmas Candy Canes

We love these Candy Cane Christmas nails created by Salon System nail expert Julie-Anne, using Gellux gel polishes. 

Follow her step by step to recreate this look for your clients this festive season.

Step One
Prepare the nails by pushing back cuticles, trimming excess, shaping the free edge, and buffing the nail plate with a white block. 

Dust well and wipe thoroughly with Salon System Nail + File Spray. 

Apply Gellux Fast Bond, let dry for 30 seconds then apply two layers of Gellux Light Pink Builder Gel, curing for 60 seconds in between layers.

Step Two
Apply a thin layer of Gellux Masquerade Ball Diamonds & Pearls, then cure for 30 seconds.

Step Three
Using a thin liner brush dipped in Gellux Purely White, paint half a skinny French tip and half a cuff, cure for 30 seconds.

Step Four
Now, dip your fine liner in Gellux Really Red and paint the other half of the tip and the cuff and then cure. 

Step Five
Repeat steps 4 and 5 using reverse colours. 

Step Six 
Apply Gellux Shiny Top Coat, cure for 60 seconds. Wipe nails with Gellux Prep + Wipe and apply cuticle oil.
