Have you seen the latest trend on nails using cashmere dust?? I saw a video where Lilyia Sereditskaya made it, just putting gel top coat then added the cashmere dust and cured in lamp...the result was so great but I wonder how it stays on since she didn't put any top coat after...
I watched the video and they look great. I want some cashmere dust i have to try it. Reminds me of the OPI suede polish i love mine.
where do I find cashmere dust?
May you find the strength to face tomorrow.. in the love that surrounds you today!!
Cashmere dust = Martha Stewart Flocking Powder @Michaels
Thanks so much I'm going to go tomorrow for flocking powder and transfer foil. Cashmere hearts for Valentine's Day!!
I would love to hear the follow up after you try this. It is not sealed in so I am wondering how it will wear and what it will look like after being exposed to normal wear and washing hands, ect...
Mitchele....please post pictures of your foiling....I bought a whole bunch of it and I'm not having much luck. Also, I don't have any ideas on how to use it!
I like the foil in a faded design mostly or on the tip and the toes its cute. Cashmere i have to try b/c i have a feeling my toes will be warmer with a cashmere pedicure. Nail tech logic of course lol
If any of you do this, I would also love to hear how the wear is. I'm wondering how it cures since it looks fairly dense. It seems as though she has no problem with it, but with my luck, it wouldn't cure all the way. LOL
I also wonder how it stays on the nail since there is no top coat and for how long...I would like to try a similar way with a patch of glitter acrylic without a top coat over it and see how it stays...what do you think??
It's Flocking powder I emailed the company who i first saw this done on a Russia website. I ask them do they ship and they told me it would be cheaper to by in the states. Mistero Milano that's the company also reading the comments on peolpe who tried it. There were many different ways to apply. But they did state that you need to wear gloves when you wash dish and things. That i post
Um i wonder if i cure it and then dry brush over the top so flakes will come off right then if that will help? I will try this weekend and post pics havent had any time this wk to do my nails. Sorry any other ideas on keeping the flocking powder to stay put would be great.
thanks but I saw Holly's video and i don't care for that design....covering the entire nail with foil. I also looked at the cashmere nails video....looks interesting.
Take a look at robin moses vids on transfer foil and the glue she recommends. She is on youtube and fb.

she is awesome...and I just got the glue this week. I'm still having problems getting the foil to adhere to the glue when I press it down....some spots where I put the foil is not adhering. I also noticed that Robin said she thins the glue, maybe I thinned it too much. Guess I'll just have to keep practicing! And on a side note....I will NEVER order foil from Dollar Nail Art again. I ordered $35 worth, they said they sent it and that the post man delivered it to my house but I never got it. Their answer was "sorry, after we ship it, it's out of our hands." No offer of replacement or refund! (sorry, had to rant, this makes me so mad!)
by the way, still waiting for you guys to post a picture of the "cashmere" nails. I would love to see how it looks...and wears.
i used the flocking powder, but maybe the brand she sales works better? idk but its flaking off worse after i cleaned my implements and table and such so 99% ipa eats right through the powder so all of its lifting now
