Good morning lovely ladies!
I've been really impressed with all the freehanded floral designs I've been seeing on your blogs lately. I know a lot of them are done using the one stroke technique but I haven't investigated that yet. Instead, I just decided to try painting flowers the way that came naturally to me. Looking at the results tells me I definitely need to watch some tutorials ;-)
For my base, I used two coats of a pretty pink shimmer polish by Essence called Enchanted Fairy. It's one of the polishes I bought in Amsterdam and I absolutely love it. I'm not sure if it suits my skin tone but I will wear it regardless.
I then attempted to paint flowers using a nail art brush and acrylic paints.
My final step was to sponge Essence Time For Romance on my tips.
Time For Romance is a polish packed full of different sizes of glitter which I've admired on a lot of blogs but I didn't think I would buy it if I saw it on holiday. I don't know why I changed my mind but I'm really glad I did.
I'm also really glad I finally decided to try sponging glitter on my tips when I guest posted for Theodora last month. It's such an easy yet effective way of finishing a manicure.
What do you think girls? Do you have any youtube videos you can recommend for me to learn the one stroke flower technique?
Bye for now,
