Nail fail: My first attempt at one stroke

nails-one-stroke-fail

Hi everyone!

Today I have a bit of a nail fail for you. I’ve been seeing such beautiful one stroke nails and I decided to try it for myself, but it didn’t work out very well. I considered not showing you but then I realised, this blog is about my nail art, the occasional fail included! Hopefully it can inspire you to try some things that seem difficult too. nails-one-stroke-failI tried to follow this tutorial by Lucy’s Stash. Obviously, I still have a lot to learn and it didn’t end up looking like anything. I forgot to note which polish I used as a base here but I used white acrylic paint for my one stroke. Once it was done I thought it looked too stark so I added a coat of the Essence Nail Candies polish I’m holding. nails-one-stroke-failNot to worry – I’ve already tried one stroke again and my second attempt came out a lot better! You’ll be seeing it soon! nails-one-stroke-failHave you tried one-stroke nail art yet? nails-one-stroke-fail
