Any ideas

i not know what tie dyed efect is but i think if you can make origional idea is very very good same lace and zip nail .

Have you thought of using a marblising tool? Basically, you do the following;

1) Paint your chosen base colour over the nail.

2) place a blob of nail polish in the centre of the nail and another blob of a different colour in the centre of that.

3) Using the marblising tool you pull the paint lightly from the centre of the nail towards the edges. (as though you are making a star shape)

You can use as many colours as you choose and make into you chosen shape.

Unfortunatley I don't have pictures to back this up with but I'm sure somebody else will, and maybe able to explain it better. :rolleyes: :lol:
Here is a tie dye look that I did last year.........
You apply the acrylic colours at random, but skill keeping to the zone structure..........starting form zone 1 up to zone 3...............
You just have to play and see what you can come up with....experiment and learn by trial and error.............
Hope this helps
