One-stroke pinkish-purple flowers



I had fun, but really stretched myself with all the challenges this month!  Which, I suppose, was the point.  My last flower NCC challenge mani starts with a palate cleanser, Models Own Utopia.

What a peaceful, serene, delicate color.  Made even prettier by a new-to-me Indie, Sweetheart Polish.  This is She's So Flakey, a blush-pink jelly base with pink and green flakies.

I encourage you to go check out Yummy Nails' video that inspired these one-stroke flowers.  Mostly because she is awesome and my flowers look a hot mess, especially compared to hers.  Mine are more like 'she-had-a-stroke' flowers.  But I keep practicing!

I used Nabi Purple Hologram for the inside of the flower, and Cover Girl Outlast Vio-last for the outside, and then added some detail with a black nail art striper.   A magenta half-pearl went in the center of each flower.

I really like that bit of purple holo sparkle in the flowers.

Have you tried the one-stroke technique yet?  I suspect it would be easier with acrylic paints, but I like the effect with polish, too.  

If you'd like more info about Sweet Heart Polish, you can find her on Facebook and her Etsy store.
