Stroke me, stroke me

I learned a new trick today!

Good girl!

Ok, spending too much time with the dogs...  I practiced one-stroke flowers today.  And I got a little carried away.  I liked them so much, I decided to do a RAINBOW of one-stroke flowers.

I started with purple.  Base:  CQ Twilight & Chameleon Cyclone.  Flowers:  I think that's Color Club Electronica and Sally Hansen White Tip

Right hand:  more like one-stroke blobs.  I'm learning...

Blue!  My fave.  Base:  China Glaze Rainstorm.  Flowers: Kleancolor Neon Sapphire and China Glaze Kinetic Candy

 Right hand blobbish:

Green/Gold:  base: OPI Thanks a Windmillion, Flowers: OPI Jade is the New Black and China Glaze Gaga for Green.  Dots were Orly It's Not Rocket Science & Sally Hansen Hue

Right hand, looking more like flowers, hey!

Sparkly Hue.

Red/Pink.  Or, Red, and Light Red.  Base: Sinful Colors You Just Wait and Glass Pink.  Flowers:  Orly Red Flare and a no-name pink creme from Ross.  Leaves:  OPI Jade is the New Black and Thanks a Windmillion.

 Orange/Yellow:  Base: Revlon Sunshine Sparkle.  Flowers:  Bettina Sherbet & Revlon Sorbet

So, are you ready to try some one-stroke flowers?  Stroking is fun!


  1. These are so beautiful!!! :D

  2. I love the one stroke technique it's awesome, I've tried it before but for some reason the colors just mix themselves together I never get the two tone effect blah, maybe some more practice lol! but on a different note, I am Loving the ones you did! they are all beautiful :)

    1. Mine mix too, sometimes. If I go over the same polish twice, then it all gets mixed up. Hope to see some on your blog! :)

  3. You did really, really well Nidia, beautiful colors.
    You should buy some acrylic paints - it would give you so much more freedom, and you will LOVE it!
    Please try it, Folk Art and Americana both have the right consistency!

    1. Thanks, Maria - you were my inspiration! :) I have a small set of acrylic paint I got from Born Pretty. Maybe I'll try it... I'm afraid I *will* like it and then I'll never use up all this polish I have! lol

  4. The red & orange are my favorites! Awesome technique & so so pretty!
