Purple one-stroke nail art


Hi everyone!

Last week I showed you my first attempt at one-stroke nail art. It was a bit of a fail but I decided to try again. This time I didn’t try using only one colour again – I think that actually made it harder although it seemed easier to use just one colour. I watched several different tutorials before trying this. I think it came out a lot better than my first attempt! nail-addict-by-tip-top-synergy-acrylic-paint-purple-one-strokeThis time you can actually tell it’s flowers! I still have plenty of room for improvement but I was very happy with these. nail-addict-by-tip-top-synergy-acrylic-paint-purple-one-strokeI started with a base of the beautiful Tip Top Synergy and added the flowers using acrylic paints. nail-addict-by-tip-top-synergy-acrylic-paint-purple-one-strokeSo what do you think of my second attempt? You’ll be seeing more of this technique from me for sure! nail-addict-by-tip-top-synergy-acrylic-paint-purple-one-stroke

    These came out amazing Kerry! I keep meaning to get myself acrylic paints to play with.

      Thank you! You definitely should. I don’t think I’d even attempt one-stroke without acrylics. They’re great for other things too – I recently did 2 different detailed freehand looks (not on the blog yet). One I did with polish, and I really struggled with it and it ended up not being sharp and detailed enough. The other I did with acrylics and it worked SO much better.
