Tie Dye Nails
This is a tie dyed effect and I used Borghese's Bianco White Tip for the base colour and on my thumb and middle finger I made an extra stripe using this. In my opinion, those nails with the extra white stripe seem more tie dyed to me. I guess it gives off more of effect of a white material being dyed. For the bright colours I used Avon's Coral Beat, Sunshine, Sweet Mint and Lagoon.
The tutorial for how to do this can be found here:
I would stay away from fast drying nail polishes for this as they wouldn't spread when you drag the pin/needle through them. I also found that this design wasn't very durable. I supposed with dragging the needle through the polish it causes a separation and the polish chipped off in pieces after a couple of days. Although, I don't add them to the picture I do use a base coat and top coat, but I guess the top coat wasn't enough to hold this look together. It was fun while it lasted.
