Ten Minute Tie Dye Nails


Ten minute nail art?  How cool is that?  I whipped these babies together in no time!  I did a base coat or Orly Ridge Filler… then I painted four different strips of bright colors.  I just sort of glopped them on very thick and messy.  Then I dragged a dotting tool through them to create the tie dye effect.  It would probably look nice with a bright white base coat- but I was going for quick and easy today so I skipped that part.  For such a ‘quick n dirty’ technique it came out pretty cool I think.  This could be a great option for some quick summertime nail art!

Have you ever tried tie dye nails?  I imagine that there’s a lot of different tie dye techniques out there!

  1. So this is done with normal drag marble’ing ??:) cool, it really looks like tie dye, or Batik 🙂 Love the outcome of this 🙂 Reminds me of a tshirt from the 60’s and 70’s, great 🙂 ❤

    • Yay thanks! Hey- is the sally hansen stuff you use called ‘maximum growth’? I used an old bottle of that stuff during the 30 day challenge and my nails are in good shape!

    • Thanks! A white base would work good i bet…. or i was thinking maybe dragging a skinny brush dipped in white instead of a dotting tool? I wanna try this again!
