Step by Step Directions with Images:-

  1. Always protect your nails with base coat.
  2. Paint all your nails white color as base, and let it dry completely before doing this rainbow art.
  3. On Ring finger with dotting tool, paint  small random dots on with different colors, mentioned above like shown in picture.
  4. On all other fingers (index, middle and pinky)we are going to do tie die nail art with two colors as shown.
  5. Trick to do Tie Die nails:-
    1. Pick any two colors for each nail.
    2. Place two dots with those colors and place the plastic on the finger carefully.
    3. Press the colors so that they combine and spread across the nail, as shown.
    4. Carefully remove the plastic shade
    5. Let it dry completely. If there is some color not spread, correct with nail polish.
