The Tie-Dye Manicure Is The Grooviest Nail-Art Trend Of 2019

The actual process requires a little more finesse than vats of dye and rubber bands: Artists are recreating the effect by carefully painting nail polish onto the nail in individual swirls, then pulling a striping brush through the center before the polish dries to create the spiral effect. Tie-dye has always been about that imperfect homespun finish — but if you can’t quite nail it, there’s no shame in bringing along the inspiration photos ahead next time you head to the salon. It’s all groovy, baby.
