Summer tie-dye nails

Summer Tie Dye Step 6

Spring/Summer, Step by Step

Tie-dye is a key look for summer, so Salon System nail expert, Jaz Moger of Paint by Jaz, has created this funky step-by-step using Gellux to keep you right on-trend…

Step 1
Start by prepping the nails and filing to a round shape. Push back the cuticle using the Salon System Cuticle Handy Manicure Tool, and remove the cuticle using the Gellux Erase Cuticle Remover and cuticle clippers. Buff the nail plate and cleanse nails with Gellux Prep + Wipe. Apply Gellux Fast Bond, followed by one coat of Gellux Cover Pink Base Coat and cure for 60 seconds.
Step 2
Apply one coat of Gellux in Purely White and cure. The white provides a good base for the stripes and will help to make the colours pop.
Step 3
Using Gellux in Pink Punch, Mud & Music, Glamping, Tease Me, Steal the Show and Main Stage, paint stripes vertically down the nail but don’t cure.
Step 4
Next, drag a fine liner nail art brush horizontally through the paint, cleaning the brush between each drag.
Step 5
Do exactly the same with the nail art brush but, this time from the other side, between the other lines you have just done. Once you are happy, cure. Continue to do this to each nail, going vertically or horizontally.
Step 6
To finish the look, apply a coat of Gellux Shiny Top Coat, cure and then wipe over with Gellux Prep + Wipe. Finally, finish by applying Gellux Nail & Cuticle Oil.
