6 of 31: Purple Nails
Howdy, everyone! I'm still keeping up with the 31 Day Challenge and we're on to Day 6. Here's my take on Purple Nails:
This is my first attempt at a technique called one stroke painting. I got the idea from this post on Lucy's Stash and did a little research on YouTube to find out how to do this technique. It's relatively simple, but takes a bit of practice. If you're interested in learning more, there are tons of videos out there, just google "one stroke painting".
Here, I started with 2 coats of Essie's Bangle Jangle, a pretty grey lavender creme. I painted the flowers using purple and white acrylic paint and topped everything with a coat of Seche Vite. I'm pretty proud of this for a first attempt and I'm looking forward to trying this technique in some different colors. Here's another look:
Thanks so much for reading and stop back in tomorrow to see some black & white nails!
