How to Tie Dye Your Nails
Step 1- Paint a base coat
Step 2 – Tape
Step 3 – Bullseye
This process needs to be done quickly to avoid letting the nail polish dry. Fill your bowl up 3/4 of the way with water and drop your nail polish in one after the other to make a bulls eye pattern in the center of your plastic cup.
Step 4 – Multiple colors
Step 5 – Toothpick Design
Step 6 – Dunk your nail
This step needs to be down quickly or else the nail polish will dry. Place your nail, palm up and dip it into the center of the bulls eye. Turn your nail over under the water and pull it out.
Step 7 – Repeat
Repeat steps 3-6 for each nail. You have to make a new bullseye for each nail.
Step 8 – Clean up
Use nail polish remover to clean up around your nails. Or take a hot shower and peel the paint off with your fingers!

PPS: Do you have a favorite summer nail color? I had a big nail polish dilemma not to long ago… maybe I just need to swirl all of the colors together every time!
