In this design, you really start to see the traditional look of one move or one stroke. It is a beautiful design which you can ‘grow’ (see what I did there) over each finger. 

Nude wedding

One stroke is not all about flowers, this is an abstract design, ideal for wedding nails. You will learn how to create a ribbon-like effect in seconds.

Moveing into the more complicated moves, overlapping petals we create this gorgeous pansy, another winner for the clients IMO. 


Must have, and by popular request, one stroke makes creating butterfly wings super easy. no more blending, it is literally done in one move. Ideal for you nail-art options in the salon. 


Learning the iconic and traditional rose of one stroke, get this perfected and you will wow everyone. It is simple when you know how. But remember practice make perfect. 


My favorite this deep red over the black and rich vibrant green leaves has an almost sensual look to it. Poppies are the hit flower, and always a winner. We finish this course on a high.
