Nail Art : Hibiscus flower

Uploaded by tartofraises1 on 15.06.2011

Hi, today my nail art tutorial is the one stroke.
One Stroke is a painting technique that involves soaking half part of the brush in a color
and the other part in an other color.
Take an angled brush or a flat brush with bristles not too soft neither too hard.
Soak one-half of the brush in a color, here fuchsia,
and one-half of the in white.
It's acrylic paint, so it must be quite opaque.
Draw a flower with 5 petals by wavering up and down,
and lift up the brush to finish the petal by a fuchsia line.
Pictures are worth a thousand words...
You can touch-up with a thin brush to add pink or white in the heart of the flower.
Then, do same thing with 3 petals in the nail corner.
The difficulty of this nail art when you do it on your own nails,
is to find a good position for the hand to be at ease to paint petals.
With a little dotting tool soaked in a very diluted fuchsia paint,
more the paint is diluted, the more dots will be small.
Finally, don't forget the top coat to finish the nail art.
