For my nails I don’t really obey seasons – people go darker for autumn and winter, but I just wear whatever colour suits my mood… and that’s why I decided to go with a pastel tie-dye.
It had been a while since I got one, and this mani produces a fabulous effect that is so easy to achieve.
I used baby pink Kiko 376, light blue Boy next door from Topshop, unnamed mint green from ColorClub and yellow Rising Sun from H&M.
With an eye sponge applicator, I dabbed each colour in, being careful to make it look more intense towards the edges, and less towards the middle. I overlapped some too, to make it look more blended.
After repeating the process with each colour, I used the beautiful Orly Prisma Gloss Silver to add that holographic glittery touch, and sealed it all with Seche Vite.
Sooo happy with this look!

I will but for the moment I have gel nails so I must let them grow! xo
I’ve been getting my nails tie dyed for about 4 years, but I haven’t tried this technique yet. It’ll be my next one. Looks great!
