Tie-dyed nails The trick, as she notes, is to use a jelly polish as your colored layer. Once both layers are dry you rub a Q-tip across the nail to take off just the top layer and smudge the edges a bit. The tough part is not to take the white off as well.
These are our top picks from Essie nail polish for pedicures this summer. For a classic red or pink look, we love Fishnet Stockings, Fifth Avenue and Cute as a Button. For a modern pop of color, Chillato is perfect. And we’ve got the summertime blues with Turquoise & Caicos, Butler Please and Pret-A-Surfer. Find them all at Kohl’s.
