DIY 4th of July Nails

The gals at LoveSurf were looking for a little inspiration for some 4th of July DIY beach beauty ideas, and we came across this great tutorial for DIY 4th of July Tie-Dye Nails. We love the idea, and wanted to share her technique with you. So here is a section from the tutorial on …loveMaegan:

“Here’s what I used…

1. OPI “Kennebuck Port” 2. OPI Sephora “A-Ha! Moment” 3. OPI “Suzi Says Feng Shui”

* I used Essie “Good to Go” top coat and ALMOST added a little glitter sparkles for fun.

* You’ll need a pin or toothpick to create your tie dyed effect.

How I achieved my tie dye nails… this video tutorial may help if you need it.

1. Paint a base coat, I chose white, but it depends on what order you’d like your colors to display.
2. When your base coat dries, begin with your first color {white} & at your cuticle, diagonally paint about half way up your nail.
3. Add a large stripe of your next color {blue}.
4. And then your final color to the tip {red}.

5. With your pin or toothpick, AND to your WET NAIL, touch your first color {white} and drag it through your others and to the end of your nail.
6. Wipe off your pin.
7. Repeat step 5 & 6 until you have what looks similar to a star.

* Repeat all the steps on each nail you’d like to tie dye, one at a time.”

What do you think? Would you try it? How are all you LoveSurf Girls staying festive for the 4th?
