Cover your workspace with paper to protect it.
Fill your bowl with water and unscrew the lids of your polishes so that they are easier to use once your fingers are taped.
Using Scotch tape, tape around your nail to limit the amount of excess polish that gets onto your skin. *We found it easier if you had a friend to help with the taping.
Now, carefully dip your finger just to the side of the color, bring it up under the colors, and out of the water. You can also try to put your finger into the color, nail side down, and then lift your nail up. See which technique gives you the best results.
Allow your fingernails to dry and then carefully remove the tape.
Apply a layer of clear coat, allow to dry. You may want to your a quick dry coat too, as the tie dye polish can be a little thick and slow drying.
