How to Make Tie-Dye Your Fingernails Yourself


  1. Paint your nails with a base coat of choice, like you normally would. One layer is fine. Use the scotch tape to sort of seclude your fingernail. Put it on the skin all around your nail- this is so when we put the design on the nail, the paint does not get all over the rest of your finger. Once your finger is prepped, you can start to make a design. Choose another color and let paint drip from the brush into the shallow container of water. When it drips into the water it should dispense a little bit. Take your second color and let it drip in the same manner, in the middle of the first color. Keep doing this, alternating colors just a few times. The more colors you use the more you can alternate. With the needle draw some lines in the colors. This will make everything swirl and twist, and be wonderful. Pick your favorite spot on the design and gently dip your taped finger into the water. You can completely submerge the finger, and the polish will adhere to the nail. Dip the toothpick in the water beside your nail and sort of twirl it around to pick up the excess polish in the water. Slowly lift your finger out of the water, remove the tape. NOTE: For every nail you do, you need to make new drops. After doing the rest of your nails in the same manner, paint over them all with a clear coat.
