Lisa Frank has some competition with these 90s-inspired nails. To tie-dye your tips, just follow the five simple steps below.

What You’ll Need:

  • White nail polish
  • Thin paintbrush
  • 4 – 5 bright nail colors
  • Paper towels
  • Nail polish remover
  • Clear top coat
  • Tie-dye inspiration

 
The How-To:

  1. Paint your nails with two coats of white polish and let dry completely.
  2. With the first bright nail color, use the paintbrush to make little circles in a swirl from the center of the nail to the edge (as shown above).
  3. Dip the paintbrush in nail polish remover and pat dry with paper towels.
  4. Repeat steps two and three with each of the different nail colors until you’re happy with the design.
  5. Finish with a clear top coat.
