Freehand and One Stroke

Practicing Freehand 


Happy Easter Monday to you all :)
I really wasn't planning on blogging today, but I wanted to share with you how I have been getting on with my freehand and one stroke. I've seen so many beautiful nails just lately and I follow Tartofraise, now what this beautiful young lady paints on her nails is amazing,  and she was one of the first videos I found on youtube, and gave me the inspiration to try freehand and one stroke. But my first attempts looked dreadful!! Tartofraise made it look super easy.
I stopped for a while and then over this weekend I decided to try again, and here are my attempts..


One Stroke Floral Nails. I took my time and found them a lot easier.


Freehand Paint Splat and two toned wall. This was really easy to do. Even getting the gradient wall!


Lastly some Spring inspired nails. These were full nail wraps from a pic I saw on instagram,  and I tried to paint them freehand. Not totally happy with these ones, but the other two I  love, and proud of myself lol.
Hope you like them too..
Stay safe and much love....
