This nail art combines a few classic elements of hippie culture in shades of violet. I began with the simple tie-dye effect and then the rest of the manicure took off from there!
I've done a more realistic looking spiraled tie-dye before, but I like the simplicity of this one, too. Of course, it doesn't hurt that this one is much faster and easier to execute!
I added a feather to my pinky and a daisy pattern to my pointer. The manicure was finished with a lava lamp/peace sign hybrid on my thumb.
There are four shades of purple used in this manicure.
OPI You're Such a Budapest - light lilac base
China Glaze Crimson - deep red leaning grape shade
China Glaze Grape Pop - classic royal purple
China Glaze That's Shore Bright - medium pinky purple
I'm so happy that I had an easier time coming up with this nail art than I did on blue day! Two days in a row of that and I think I would have had a breakdown.
