Tie-Dye Nail Art

Was browsing the net as you do, and came across this very beautiful tie-dye backpack. I absolutely loved it until I found out it was £300!! (Way out of my price bracket). I really loved the pastel colours, and how they all merged together seamlessly. Instead I decided to use the pattern as inspiration for my tie-dye nails.

It is pretty easy to recreate the pattern, and I must say a lot of fun too! I used white polish as my base coat, and sponged a variety of pastel colours on top of it. Before my nails were fully dry, I applied a clear top coat to help the colours merge together. As if by magic, my tie-dye nails were born!
