Eternal Sunshine

Another "How do I?" question...

I was wondering if anyone knew of a tutorial or how to get the effect of these icons:

This is my attempt:

But as you can see it's not the same AT ALL. You can see the white around her neck and what not. I can't figure out how to make it look as smooth and flowing as hers. I tried the blur tool, the smudge tool, radial blur, etc etc etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
