Final Aquarius Jaz Moger:feature

Seasonal & Occasions, Step by Step

Step into Aquarius season with some nail art inspired by this charismatic air sign!

Salon System nail expert, Jaz Moger, has created this Aquarius-inspired step-by-step using the Salon System GELLUX gel polish system, available via wholesalers nationwide.


Step 1
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 the nails with GELLUX Nail + File Cleansing Spray and a lint free pad. When the nails are dry, apply GELLUX Fast Bond and let it dry for 30 seconds. Apply one very thin layer of the GELLUX Cover Pink Base Coat, curing for 60 seconds.
Step 2
Next, apply a coat of GELLUX Builder Gel in Cool White and smudge some GELLUX Butterfly Blue into the builder gel, before curing for 60 seconds.
Step 3
Using a thin fine liner nail art brush and GELLUX Purely White, paint some wiggly lines and do not cure.
Step 4
Dip a slightly bigger nail art brush into some GELLUX Acetone and lightly dab the brush along the white line. The acetone will cause the line to ‘bleed’ a little. Once you have done this to every line, cure for 30 seconds.
Step 5
Next, lightly paint random patches of GELLUX Butterfly Blue, and GELLUX Arabian Nights onto the nail, but not all over, cure for 30 seconds.
Step 6
Once cured, add some NSQUK Fairy Flakes and dab over the whole nail with Angel Foil followed by a coat of GELLUX Clear Base & Top Coat, then cure for 30 seconds.
Step 7
Wipe over the nails with GELLUX Acetone. Using GELLUX Purely White, draw on the Aquarius lines across the ring finger - this helps to create a guideline – and cure for 30 seconds. Go over the lines with GELLUX Stick-It-Glue and cure for 60 seconds.
Step 8
Next, dab gold foil onto the Aquarius lines previously created.
Step 9
Using a pair of tweezers, pick out some decals from the Magpie Beauty Constellation stickers pack and stick them onto the bare nails.
Step 10
Paint a thin line of GELLUX Stick-It-Glue all the way around each nail, cure for 60 seconds, then dab gold foil on.
Step 11
Finally, apply GELLUX Clear Base & Top Coat and cure again. Wipe nails with GELLUX Prep + Wipe and GELLUX Nail & Cuticle Oil to finish.
