One stroke flowers tutorial

Hello! I hope you all are well :) The grey weather we have been getting here in England has had a huge impact on my mood and nail colour choice- I am wearing a very grey manicure today. In addition to the usual nail of the day, I’ve also uploaded a short one stroke flowers tutorial on my Instagram to show you how I created this look.

As a base I am wearing Color Club Ms. Hautie from Untaimed Luxury Collection. Ms. Hautie is a pearl grey polish full of tiny multicoloured glitter and semi-textured finish. It’s a nice polish but I quite dislike the textured finish, I would prefer it smooth.

I created the one stroke flowers inspired by Marielle Plüschke’s One Stoke book (no link as I got it via a facebook group order). To create the flowers I used Mosaic size 4 one stroke brush (got it from here) and Reeves acrylic paints in Mars Black and Titanium White (from ebay). To see how I painted them check out my latest IG video here.

I’ve been trying to paint proper one stroke flowers for a while now and whereas these are not perfect, they are the closest I’ve ever come to a proper one stroke flower look. So yayy me!

    That’s a really classy look, and thank you for the tutorial. I was trying to practice the one stroke technique the other day and failing miserably so I will be re-watching your video for my next attempt! :)

    Just found your website, love it. I’ve done a few one stroke but they look more like I had a stoke so I am going to watch the videos for more inspiration. I found that book online, looks lovely. May have to order if I can’t get them right. Plus looks like a fun book to have in my polish collection.
