Treasure Island Take Two

How do you care for 3D/4D nails?

You care for 3D/4D nails the way you would your own nails. I recommend wearing gloves to complete housework. Avoid being too rough on them. Best Tip: Use your fingertips to do things and not your fingernails. Avoid using a lot of sticky hair products or lotions that may take away from the shine of your rhinestones. If you can't stay away from those gummy products... just wash your hands immediately after handling them to restore shine. Also, never ever try applying clear coat polish to add luster... it doesn't work. My designs stay on very well and could last you up 2 weeks, if you care for them properly.

Do you sculpt, set or manicure nails?

The answer is No. I only color, design and bejewel pre-manicured nails. I work on natural nails. I can also design on acrylic nails.

How long does it take to design a set of nails?

It truly intrigues people to see such detailed work done on fingernails. I always get asked how much time goes into completing a design. Every design I create has a base theme and color scheme. I paint the nails in different colors and shapes in order to get clean lines and set the foundation for the nail jewelry. The nail art alone without the gems can be worn, but why ever would you want to.

It can take anywhere from 3 to 6 hours depending on the length of the nail and level of 3D/4D art.
