With summer in full bloom, ensuring your nails are as fluorescent as the season comes with a hint of pressure by having to decide which color to choose — and stick with it. But in 2019, tie-dye nails exist as a thing of the present, inspired by past trends from ‘90s fashion. And before anyone cringes at the idea of tie-dye tips, Kylie Jenner has given the tie-dye nail trend a whirl, and it’s low-key a mood for your next festival look.
If there are anyone’s hands a nail lover could envy, it’s the digits on Kylie Jenner. The makeup maven is no stranger to a full set with glimmering details. And since the nail aficionado got a set of tie-dye colored nails, she’s proving all the more why this trend is alive and ready to flourish.
On June 13, Kylie posted a photo of her new manicure that featured yellow, blue, and pink hues that basically looks like a unicorn watercolor painting. On top of that, the makeup mogul’s nails look like they were coated with a high sheen top coat to basically look like candy.
The colorful full set of nails are brought to Kylie onlookers by celebrity nail artist Chaun P. who’s known for doing a lot of Kylie’s other ombre nail looks.
It's hard to deny that this tie-dye nail trend looks damn near tasty as if it were one of those big swirly lollipops.
Although Kylie is one of many to achieve the tie-dye nail look, there's a goldmine of super talented nail techs on Instagram who have been delivering all sorts of tie-dye nail ideas. From more classic tie-dye designs to ombre ones like Kylie's, nail lovers have a plethora of tie-dye styles to derive inspo from.
