Halo products are available via and associated stockists.

Step 1
Prep the nails and apply Halo Gel Polish Base Coat. Cure, then apply Halo Gel Polish shade, Jungle, vertically to one half of the nail, and Rafiki to the other half. Use your chosen nail art brush to blend the hues, creating an ombré effect. Cure once you are happy with the look.
Step 2
Mix Halo Gel Polish in Lodge with the Halo Non Wipe Top Coat to create a sheer shade. Paint over a section of the nail in a diagonal sweep, but do not cure.
Step 3
Decant a large drop of Halo Non Wipe Top Coat onto a palette. Pick up some of the product with the Halo Create Dotting Tool, and dot over the uncured Lodge mix. The product will create a bubble effect. Cure.
Step 4
Use a Halo Create Fine Liner Brush with Halo Gel Polish in Black to create animal-style patterns across the nail, such as stripes and dots. Cure when you are happy with the look, and apply a coat of Halo Non Wipe Top Coat. Cure, then apply cuticle oil to finish.
