MINTY ONE STROKE ROUND FLOWERS

Hey guys, hows your week started? I have spent most of today painting my nails and trying out different techniques and designs, some of which you'll see soon :) 

So I felt like painting something different to the regular one stroke flowers etc. which is how this design was born. 
I started off with 2 coats of Catrice Sold Out Forever (please don't ask me which version this is because there are quite a few and I find it slightly frustrating!) Then I used 2 blue acrylic paints, one dark blue and one lighter blue, then I just kinda pressed down on the brush so the bristles spread out on the nail and rotated to form a circle shape. I then outlined the flowers with some black acrylic paint and added some white dots in the center before finishing it all off with topcoat. 
What do you guys think? The technique is quite easy but it takes a little bit of practice which you can see I need lol!







This is dodgy hand pose but I included it because you can see the difference between the 2 blues in the flowers a bit more clearly. 

See you in the next post then guys, take care :)
