Stamping over one stroke flowers! **ALMOST NAIL FAIL ALERT**

Hey y'all!
Today on the blog I have this delicate flower mani to share with you. I was really happy with how this turned out even though the original plan was a complete fail- it was totally planned around the flakie polish - LaqueredUp No Ragrets. Keep reading to find out how I did this mani! 

I started with a base of Zoya Ana on my index and middle fingers and LaqueredUp No Ragrets on my ring and pinkie fingers. Once my base was dry - I did what I suppose is TECHNICALLY one stroke flowers but - let's just put it this way - if they'd turned out looking good at ALL, this mani wouldn't have wound up stamped. Yep, the stamping covers up a fail. :P 

I am calling it a happy fail though - because this image from UberChic Beauty 1-02 looks so pretty over the purple and white one stroke flowers! Once the stamp was dry, I went in with a little of No Regrets to bling out the center of the flower and top coated with Seche Vite. 

What do you think of this mani? What's one of your "nail fail quick fixes"? 

Thanks for reading!

  1. One stroke is so much harder than it looks, I've had many failed attempts! Love this mani though and Yay to a happy fail ♡

  2. I've never tried one stroke but would never have known this started as a fail! Stamping for the win.

  3. I've never tried one stroke. The way I see it stamping plates were invented for a reason so why freehand? ;)
    Your mani turned out great!

  4. One stroke always looks beautiful but I'm no freehand artist. Regardless if your one stroke flower didn't turn out how you wanted it to your mani sure does look beautiful!

  5. I always fail at the one stroke haha but I think this mani is so beautiful! The stamp image is one of my favorites.

  6. Beautiful job Pish! Sometimes are most beautiful work are unintended oops!

  7. I love this mani so much! It's awesome when you rescue a design! :)

  8. I love the way this all goes together. So pretty!
