Earlier today I was just happily browsing through my Youtube subscriptions, looking at nailart videos of course and oh man, I found something awesome.It’s a nail art video by the incredibly talented Ukrainian-based nail tech Liliya Sereditskaya, and she is using something I had not seen before on the nail, a strange type of powder. Liliya herself calls it Cashmere, have a look and see what you think by clicking on this link, as she sadly has requested that it can not be embedded on any site but Youtube, so I will link you to it instead.
After some Googling I found a picture of an amazing set of faux nails with a velvet half moon manicure in two colors. Now I don’t know about you, but I am just LOVING this look! It’s soft and sensual. Plus it must feel pretty cool on your nails. However, I’m not sure if it would do well with moisture and how you’d use a hand cream. And even more importantly; will it still stick when you wash your hands or take a bath or shower?
Now, if you want to give this look a go yourself and you happen to be in the Netherlands I’m pretty sure you could duplicate it with these velvet powders I’ve found at the Nagelgroothandel online shop. I may have to order these someday soon and give them a go! I haven’t looked if these are in other stores outside the Netherlands but I do know that Marta Stewart has released flocking powder in assorted colors that I bet you can use for a project like this as well.
Have you ever seen or tried anything like these before? Let me know!
