If you are looking for a fun thing to try on your nails, pick your favorite colors and tie dye them!

Approximate Time: 45 minutes

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. For best results, if polishing natural nails, wipe your nails with nail polish remover to remove the natural oils on your nails. This will help your nail polish to stay on longer.

  2. Cover your workspace with paper to protect it.

  3. Paint your nails with white nail polish (or another base coat of your choice). Allow to dry completely.

  4. Fill your bowl with water and unscrew the lids of your polishes so that they are easier to use once your fingers are taped.

  5. 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. :)

  6. Put a drop or two of any color polish into the center of the water. Follow, with each other color that you have selected on top of the previous color. (We chose purple, teal, and clear with glitter.)

  7. Take a toothpick and carefully swirl the colors together.

  8. 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.

  9. Allow your fingernails to dry and then carefully remove the tape.

  10. Dip your orange stick or Q-tips into the nail polish remover and remove any excess polish from around your nails.

  11. 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.

Fantastic idea and results! I love this, and I rarely polish my nails.

When doing this with my granddaughters the polish balled up. We tried with lacquer & enamel polish in hot warm and cold water. We had the same results.
