Neon Tie Dye Nail Art Tutorial

So I couldn't help but use my new Models Own Polish for tans collection in the next nail art I did and this funky tie dye design is what I came up with! As always I have put together a pictorial as well as what you may need to create a similar look yourself so keep reading...

Neon Tie Dye Nail Art Tutorial

What will you need?
A selection of neon nail varnishes, as I mentioned I used three shades from the Models Own 'Polish For Tans' collection. You will also need a white nail varnish, I used Models Own 'Coconut Cream'. Amongst all the colourful goodness you will need a top coat, some tape and a cut up sponge.

Step-By-Step Tutorial:

Step 1: Begin by applying the white nail varnish to the base of each nail. After you have left this to dry COMPLETELY you can add the tape to each nail. I cut the tape to make small triangles.

Step 2: Take one of your neon shades onto a sponge and press this randomly over the nails. Repeat this for step 3 and 4, filling in all the gaps.

Step 5: Peel off the tape to reveal your design. 

Step 6: Finally add a layer of top coat to each nail. This will even out the nail and add a shine finish!

And there you have your Neon Tie Dye nail art!

Happy Nail Art-ing! Sam x


  1. This is really cute. They have an 80s/90s sort of feel to them, like those t-shirts you used to be able to get that changed colour with the temperature!

    I love seeing what other people have been up to with the Polish for Tans collection - if you wanted to see what I did with them you can check it out on the link below x

  2. I might just have to get one of those t-shirts to match!

    LOVE your ombre nail art using polish for tans! You have made me really want the shade Bikini too! xx
