Nail Challenge Week 14: Flowers (Part 2)

Week 14: Patterns – Flowers (Part 2)

Well sorry for the delay folks but Photobucket keeps messing about with stuff so I decided to just leave it alone until they’d finished buggering about which unfortunately means I’m a bit behind on my challenges.  Without further ado I’d like to introduce you to a mini photo tutorial of my first attempt at one-stroke painting nail art:

Base colour: OPI Uh-Oh Roll Down The Window

Red and brown: Anitas Acrylic craft paint.  I practiced on a paper plate before doing the design on the nail but next time I think I’d go for some much thicker paints.

White: Nails Inc Floral street applied with a dotting tool.

Top Coat: Seche Vite

Verdict: Looks much better in real life – I think my camera has about had it!  Very easy and I’m loving my new nail art brushes and dotting tool.  I really think I could improve a lot on this technique though.
