Extend-A-Mani: Flower Nail Art

Nothing to Disclose

Abstract Flower Nail Art

Today I have another extend-a-mani post for you. As I've mentioned, I use these as opportunities to practice nail art. I mean I'm either going to make it last longer or remove it, so might as well practice, right? And I promised I'd show you the wins AND fails on my "nail art journey" so here ya go!

I was wearing my violet franken (someone needs to hurry up and make this color because I'm almost out and I have no earthly idea how to re-create it HINT HINT) so I grabbed blue and white acrylic paint and a small flat brush and started trying to figure out the "one-stroke" thing. Then I went in with a little black polish for the insides of the "flowers" - I didn't do very well on my first try but it wasn't a total fail. It's not great up close, but it's pretty killer at arm's length!

And a not-so-great cell pic...

See how it gets better the farther away you get? LOL!

What do you think? Have you tried the "one-stroke" method? Was yours a Fail or a Win?
