Magenta One-Stroke Flowers

Painted Fingertips | Magenta one-stroke flowers over a navy base

Hi everyone!

I’m back with my second post taking part in a weekly nail art challenge on Instagram. This week’s theme was magenta and navy. When I saw that colour combination I just knew I wanted to do something floral. In the end I went with some magenta one-stroke flowers over a navy base:Painted Fingertips | Magenta one-stroke flowers over a navy baseI started off with a base of Nails Inc Belgrave Place. I did all the rest using acrylic paints. It has been ages since I’ve done one-stroke flowers, so I was pretty happy with how these came out.

    This looks so gorgeous and vibrant! Your one-stroke is so on-point, I definitely need some pointers I can never get it to look this beautiful.

      Thanks! I watched a couple of videos by Lucy’s Stash before the first time I tried and then practiced on a piece of paper 🙂

    Oh wow! I’ve tried multiple times to produce one-stroke flowers and failed miserably every single time! But after seeing this, I want to keep trying, because this is just wonderful!

      You should keep trying, because my first try was an absolute disaster! I see other people who are making far more beautiful one-stroke flowers as well, so I think it’s all just practice!
