NOTD: Tie Dye & Peace Nail Art

Happy Friday the 13th!  I’m not superstitious, but I had a bad experience on a Friday the 13th a couple of years ago that made me hate this day and I don’t go anywhere unless absolutely necessary!  What about you, are you superstitious of Friday the 13th?

Tyler and I are helping my friend and her husband move to their new house tomorrow and she’s a hippie at heart.  When I saw this type of nail design on Lacquered Love’s Facebook page I knew I had to try it out for when I help them move 😀

I looked up a lot of ways to create tie dye nails, and found a video on YouTube using seran wrap to create the tie dye effect.  So I painted my nails white and tried it out – this is the result. 

I was never into the tie dyed clothing fad, and I have never made anything tie dyed,  but I think this turned out pretty awesome 😀  I’m pretty darn proud of myself on this one. It turned out excellent for a first attempt 😀

So then, following my inspiration photo, I added peace signs to each nail with a white nail art pen.

I think these nails are pretty sweet!  I’m so happy with the way they turned out, and will definitely be creating tie dye nails again 😀

The colours I used are:
L’Oreal I Will white base, Jessica Red Delight, Julep Courteney, Avon Blue Shock, and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Mellow Yellow.  The peace signs were done with Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen in White.

What do you guys think?

  2. Thanks Katie Mary 🙂 I love the way they turned out and can't stop looking at them 😀 Not sure if you have tried the seran/plastic wrap method, but it's fairly simple. Takes a little getting used to and a little work to get the seran wrap to cooperate, but in the end, so worth it 😀

  3. Thanks Stephanie 🙂 The Sally Hansen Nail Art Pens are so easy to work with. I was a little concerned with doing my right hand (I'm not an ambidextrous nail artist yet, lol) but it went just as easy. I just did the 4 dots for the top, bottom, left and right edges of the circle and connected them 🙂

  4. (Sorry for the late reply!) It's lots of fun! And the nail art pen was perfect for doing the peace signs — easy to control 🙂 I want to get the pens in more colours but they are kind of expensive 😦
