1 or more like 6 Stroke…

So I love how ‘1-stroke’ nail art looks, but there’s no way I can accomplish that technique yet – it’s still magical to me. Therefore I gave it go, by just sort of emulating the look. I think it works to a level but is not as good looking as those one-stroke magicians. I’d love to try this again and maybe actually the real technique. Who else has given ‘1-stoke’ a go?

One Stroke Nail Art

  1. One stroke? I’ve heard of it, but I’m not quite sure what it means. Sort of like you load up your brush with the colours you want (say, with your nails, the white with some purple on it for the centre of the flowers) and brush it on that way as opposed to going at it with a detail brush one colour at a time? Is that it? These are so pretty, but I seriously don’t get the point of the one stroke thing.

    • Yeah, that’s it! You’ve got to twist and turn your brush and the videos on YouTube are really amazing, they make some amazing results. But I’m just not that skilled! I suppose it’s quicker/easier using ‘one stroke’ rather than fiddling about but… It also looks like it would be way easier to achieve with actual paint rather than polish.

      • Yeah, that sounds like way too much work! And you’re totally right – that has to be easier going one polish at a time with a detail brush than trying to lump everything together (like, wouldn’t it literally get all lumpy? Hmm, I’d better check out some of these videos!) Thanks for explaining it for me, though – maybe one day I’ll give it a whirl.

      • The problem is they make it look way to easy – my attempt on the bit of paper (as that’s what was suggested for practicing) was horrific. Please try it out!
