One Stroke Flower Nail Art

Hi everyone!  I sat down to do Nail Art today  without really knowing what I wanted to do, these just sort of happened.  I love floral patterns at any time of the year but especially during this crap weather we're having as I only need to look at my nails to feel bright again, so this seemed like a perfect time to bring out the miracle grow (miracle grow is what you use on garden flowers to help them to grow for those of you who don't know haha!) 

I first seen CutePolish apply the below technique and decided it looked so easy, I just knew it'd end up on Spangley Nails too.

Polishes Used:
OPI - Pink It Through (Pictured)
Sinful Colors - Snow Me White
Sinful Colors - Pistache
Sinful Colors - Last Chance
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Red-io Active
nails inc - Pelham Street
Seche Vite

I started off by painting all of my nails with Snow Me White.  Once that was completely dry, I used my straight edge brush and picked up Pink It Through on one corner and Red-io Active on the other - this creates the blended, one stroke technique.  You then paint the petals on in a one stroke action - 5 petals to 1 flower.

Once my flowers were dry, I added my petals using the exact same one stroke technique except this time with a thinner brush.  I used Last Chance and Pistache to do this.

Finally, I added small dots with my smallest dotting tool using Pelham Street to the centre of my flowers.  All my nails are topped off with a coat of Seche Vite.

Would you guys like to see a tutorial for this look?  Let me know in the comments below! :-)
