Puzzle, puzzle me!

Hello sweeties out there!

Today I have a little nail art for you to see :) Curious? Its puzzle design! I've seen so many puzzle designs out there and I was amazed! I like kind of funky manis so this one struck me deep. I thought it would be hard to make cause it looks kinda complicated but its not at all. You can imagine how happy Im now that I see how easy and stunning it is. 

I checked youtube around for a tutorial but I cant really bring up one that inspired me, many ladies do it differently so all I got from the videos I've seen was idea that you dont really need to free-hand it!

This is what I ended up with:


This is actually my second attempt at this kind of design. I did one today earlier but the polishes I picked for it didnt match at all nor they showed the puzzle effect well :< So I re-did it with China Glaze Grape PoP and Nordic Cap NP07.



Basically what I did for my index and middle fingers was that I did paint them orange (would be hard for the orange to show well over the purple), cut a few of squares from my scotch tape, put them on my fingernail the way so that I get 2 "free from scotch tape" squares on my nails (opposite ends of my nail bed), paint there purple, pull off the tape and add dots with my dotting tool (orange dots on the purple squares and opposite) so that it looks like puzzle! It isnt hard at all, is it? :) 

Did you try this design yet? :) Thanks for stopping by! xx
