Floral one-stroke nail art over gradient base

Monday, May 12, 2014


Happy Monday Gals! I have some fun nail art for you today.

One-stroke painting - One of these days I will completely get the hang of it. I hope... I am getting there but I can't seem to make one small flower. I can create it on paper, but not on the smaller canvas of my nail. But I will keep trying. So in the meantime, I make half a flower on the sides of my nail. Whatever works, right?

I started with OPI "Kiss Me I'm Brazillian" and added a gradient of "Plugged in Plum." These colors just pop together.

Then I used acrylic paints to create the flowers. One-stroke painting is when you load the brush with two colors and paint. It creates a soft line between the shades. I love how this technique looks when done well. I still need practice. But I am working on it.

  6. I love the gradient - very subtle! You're better at one-stroke than I am. I call it 'having a stroke' painting, cuz that's what it looks like I'm doing.
