Mani Monday: Tie Dyed

Tie Dye Nail Art Design Tutorial Avon Nailwear Pro Swatches

Summer is slowly approaching so bold, vibrant colours are becoming more prominent in your wardrobe. To match your summery outfits, you can also rock bold colours on your nails with this tie dye nail art design.

You will need a few vibrant nail polishes, a white polish and a nail art brush to complete this look.

To begin, apply one coat of white polish and allow to dry. This will make any colour you use more vibrant and require fewer coats to reach full opacity.

Once the white is dry, start with the first colour of your tie dye design and nail art brush and create a thick stripe of it at the base of your nail (taking up 1/4 of your nail). No need to be neat or precise as this is just the first coat of it. Repeat this step with the remaining colours of your tie dye, moving closer to the tip of the nail. The colours do not need to be opaque at the end of this step.

The next part of this design is to now work backwards. Starting with the last colour you applied in the first step, apply another coat to make it opaque. Moving to the second colour from the tip of your nail, apply another coat to make it opaque but also create small lines over top of the colour at the tip of your nail. This is how you achieve the tie dye look.

Moving onto the next colour, apply another coat and then create lines into the colour before it. Also, go back to the second colour and extend lines into the third colour. Lastly, take the colour at the base of nails and apply another coat and extend lines into the third colour. Extend lines of the third colour into the fourth colour.

Allow your tie dye nail art design to dry for 5-10 minutes then apply a top coat.
