Inspiration Nation: One Stroke Flowers

Hi cupcakes!

I think it's time for another Inspiration Nation post! My inspiration this time comes from a blogger that I have always idolized! She does amazing nail art and her nails are just freaking gorgeous!! That's right I'm talking about the awesome Lucy from Lucy's Stash :) One of the many amazing things that Lucy does is one stroke flowers. I've always wanted to do one stroke flowers... actually I tried them once wayyyyy back in January and it wasn't a complete fail, not nearly as good as hers but I knew I'd want to revisit them some day. Lucy actually wrote up a tutorial post for one of her one stroke flowers so I figured that would be a great place to start ;) 

I started with a base of Zoya Aurora. Gosh I love this color! Zoya really hit the nail on the head with their 2012 Christmas collection! After that was dry I followed Lucy's tutorial and took white and purple acrylic paint and painted on the flowers. Then I took black acrylic paint and outlined them. After some top coat I was done and super proud! 






They aren't perfect but I think they are so much better then my last attempt. Practice makes perfect that's what they say right? Not to mention Lucy's tutorial made it so much easier too!

What do you think? Watch out for more one stroke flowers on the blog because I'm totally hooked!!
