About Color Treats
Color Treats works to give you healthy, beautiful, long-lasting nails for any occasion, whether you’re looking for a simple style to match the season, elegant designs for a special event, or just a manicure and pedicure that will leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed.
Born and raised in Japan, famous for its nail fashion, Fumi has been studying nail care and art since 2002. She’s studied in Japan, Australia and America, and currently holds seven certifications in the practice, as well as salon experience in massage, reflexology and aromatherapy.
Fumi moved to Portland from her hometown of Hamamatsu, Japan, in 2011, and immediately noticed the difference between Japanese and American nail art—more specifically, the lack of the latter. She cares greatly about quality nail care and relaxation, and wants to bring those values to clients here in the States.
Color Treats provides a variety of nail services, using the best quality materials and equipment you’ll find.
Above all else, Fumi stresses the importance of nail care in everything she does. Her gentle, painless techniques help to relax the hands, feet, arms and legs, and she pays special attention to cuticles and surrounding skin that many technicians miss. Good nail care and preparation also help nail colors and designs last longer, and Fumi’s technique is the best around.
Soak-off gel and gel polish
The gel polishes and Japanese soak-off gels used at Color Treats are much more gentle and flexible for natural nails than acrylics or hard gels. They remove quickly and easily without the need for heavy drilling, which can cause damage to your nails. And soak-off gels are made with color quality in mind, using vibrant pigments that bring out the best in your designs.
Soak-off gel is thicker than other polishes, and protects nails from the elements. It lasts 3 to 5 weeks, and is great for people who want long-lasting, stronger natural nails.
Gel polish is thinner, so it looks and feels more like the natural nail. It generally lasts 2 to 3 weeks, and is better for those who want to change their designs more often.
Individual care for each client
Not everyone’s nails are the same. Fumi works with each client to determine the best approach for them, taking nail type, strength, lifestyle, occupation, and the expected duration of the design into account before choosing gels and materials.
Fumi’s dry pedicure uses a new, more effective and environmentally friendly technique which uses far less water, with less chance for bacterial infection than traditional pedicures. And unlike other salons, Fumi pays just as much attention to exfoliation and cuticle care with pedicures as she does with manicures, using her background in massage to ensure clients are relaxed and comfortable during their service.
