Step 3: Tie Dye Effect
Using the mixed blue and white acrylic paints with a thin brush, draw a swirling line for your guide on doing the tie-dye effect. Make some dashes out from the swirling line you just made. Repeat making dashes with the remaining colors.
Then, dab few darker purple color to the other to make a legit effect of a tie dye effect.
Step 4: Heart Tie Dye
For your ring fingernail — Put on the heart-shaped nail vinyl gently on your nail. Then start to paint the same swirling line effect and finish it with the dashes to achieve the same tie dye effect.
