Chameleon nails

SalonSystem GELLUX Nail Technician, Julie-Anne Larivière, has created this gorgeous summer nail design. Using the brilliant new heat-reactive Salon System Chameleon range shades of Grape/Turquoise and Mauve/Rose this is one magical colour-changing design.

Step 1

Prepare nail and clean with Gellux Prep + Wipe , and apply Gellux Fast Bond. Allow to dry for 60 seconds.

Step 2

Apply Gellux Easy Off Base Coat, then cure; 30 seconds with LED, two minutes with UV.

Step 3

Apply Gellux Grape/Turquoise to the top half of the nail then Mauve/Rose to the bottom half. Do not cure.

Step 4

With a shortliner brush or a fan brush, swipe the brush back and forth to blend the two colour together. Once they're nicely blended, put under the lamp for 30 seconds for LED, two minutes for UV.
