#TheLacquerRing: One Stroke Flowers

I'm going to keep this one short and sweet since it's moving day! EEK! #TheLacquerRing is back with June's art prompt of One Stroke Flowers. You may remember at the beginning of the month we did Turquoise Shimmer

I started off with a base of Painted Polish Life, Liberty & The Pursuit of Holo. This is half of the Land of the Free Duo, I've got the other half to show you tomorrow. LL&TPOH is a beautiful glitter bomb filled with red, blue, and silver holo glitter. It's so distracting out in the sun. 




I then went in with blue and white acrylic paint to make the one stroke flowers. I added in some stamens with red to make my flowers super patriotic. It was my first time trying this technique so my flowers aren't great, but I like the overall look.





Be sure to check out all the other One Stroke Flower looks below!



Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

  5. That glitter is like WHOA. Normally I don't go for patriotic polishes because you can only wear them one day a year, but I'd make an exception for this one.
    Your mani looks so good! I can't believe you did it in no time! - Bubbie

    1. Right? I can't love it enough and its not so super patriotic that you can't wear it at other times too.

  6. Such a neat idea to try this with red white and blue! This must have been so blingy in person.
