Do you want to know how I created this stunning 3D gel rose nail design using the 4D gels?


Well, you landed on the right page. This post is a step by step on how to create 3D roses and if you are interested in how I created the background of these nails, click here.


Let’s begin…

Step By Step

Products I used –



Step By Step

4D Gel in Red Lips

  • Use the end of the Missu Beauty gel brush to scoop out the 4D gel.
  • You only need a medium size bead.


Step By Step

A small 4D Gel bead

  • Place the bead on your finger, and with your thumb and index finger roll the 4D gel, so it looks like a round ball like it’s shown in the photo above.


Step By Step

Bead on the nail

  • Before doing anything, remove the shine off the surface of the nail with a buffer.
  • Place the 4D Gel on the surface of the nail.


Step By Step

Create a petal shape

  • Dip your brush on the cleanser and take some excess off on a couch roll, you want a bit of liquid on the brush.
  • When making the petal design pattern, press slightly down, then turn the brush flat, spreading it in a round shape.
  • Once you are happy with the petal pattern, place it under the lamp for a few seconds.


Step By Step

Place another bead near the petal

  • Scoop out more gel, to place your second ball. When doing the second petal, make sure the ball is a bit further in front than the first petal you created.


Step By Step

Start to shape second petal

  • Apply the same technique you did the first one petal, as you can see from the photo above; my second petal is not in line with the first one. Each petal you do has to be slightly further in front of the last.
  • Cure for a few seconds.


Step By Step

Add a third petal

  • Now apply the 3rd petal using the same technique.
  • Cure for a few seconds.


Step By Step

Add a forth petal

  • Again, with the same technique apply the 4th Petal.
  • Then cure for a few seconds.


Step By Step

Start to fill in the centre of the flower

  • Scoop out smaller ball, and place it in the middle of the other petals.
  • Dip your brush in the cleanser, remove the liquid off.
  • With the pointy bit of the brush swirl it in the middle and pat it around.
  • Once again, cure it for few seconds.


Step By Step

One last section..

  • Apply a smaller ball and place it in the middle of all of the petals.
  • Take the pointy pit of the brush and swirl it round.
  • Then cure for 60 seconds.


Step By Step

The finished look!

Repeat all of these steps for the 2nd Rose.

  • Apply Missu beauty glossy gel top coat (which btw I’m loving it) on the negative spaces, avoid applying it on the 3D gel Roses.
  • For the last time, cure for 60 seconds.
  • Finish.



Step By Step

The Finished Set!


Well, what you think? It looks a bit tricky, but I had to go through a couple of tries to get the 3D rose perfect, but hey, I’m only human and we all make errors. I had fun doing this set; If you want to know how I created the chess background design, click here.


Here are a few of my thoughts on this product,  my honest opinion is a thumbs up. The 4D gels are easy to move around, and it stays in one place. And Wow! I so love their non-wipe top coat.

If you are crazy for nail art like me, I recommend getting these 4D Gels in your kit – what you can create is so endless.  

Thank you all for reading and hope you enjoyed this little step by step post.
