My first stab at One-stroke nail art! Poppies and Zoya Tracie :)

Hello lovelies,

A while ago I've tried one-stroke nail art for the first time so this is my first stab at it. I still can't do nice leaves so it's just poppies :)

The pistachio green base colour is Zoya Tracie and poppies are painted with acrylic paint. I like the result very much but I think I still don't have the right brushes. If you do one-stroke on your nails and have great brushes then please give me some advice as to where to buy 'the good ones'. 

I still have to practice a lot before I'll be any good but it's a start... hat down for you ladies who create beautiful one-stroke manicures, it's not that easy!

    1. I've seen few but most of them on a paper with big brushes :( I'm just trying myself different techniques. There are some videos on YT but not many of the good ones.

    1. Thank you <3 I think brushes are the most important part and then the paint. that's also important. There's not many pointers on YT or webs, I haven't found many :(

    1. Not sure anyone is allowed to do tutorials on One-Stroke but for the owner of the company, Donna Dewberry. There are officially licensed instructors and they can teach One-stroke classes but even they were not allowed to do videos. Not sure where it stands now...off to Youtube to see if it's there - pretty much everything is.

  26. Love the combo of colors here...I used to do One-Stroke acrylic painting from Donna Dewberry in the 90's - spent a ton of buying her kits and instruction books. Once nail art hit big, I started to think her petite flowers would translate well to the nail. It's all in loading the brush and a getting a few little techniques down...really anyone who thinks they are not artistic can do it with a tiny bit of practice and be successful.

  27. http://www.hofcraft.com/one-stroke-brush.html That's the link for the official One-Stroke brushes. They used to offer a mini brush set to do all the mini flowers which would work well for nails...I have the mini flower instruction book. Her stuff hit really hard in the late 80's through 90's with all the folk art/country French being popular. I always found One Stroke to be lots easier than tole painting.

  28. Your nails are gorgeous. Great job!

  29. This is really lovely. I have tried doing the one stroke technique on my nails before, but had no luck with it. I'm sure my brushes and lack of skill were the problem. :O)
