Rather Puzzling

I hung out with one of my sisters yesterday, and it gave me an idea for a new mani!  My sister absolutely loves puzzles, so here ya go!!


I started with two coats of Finger Paints Pop Rock Pink.  I really don't think it's very pink though.  It's really much more of a coral!  It's a great jelly with a nice subtle shimmer!  Since it is a jelly, I decided on this one for the base color on all of my nails, as the other polishes are all cremes.  I didn't want any of the other colors showing through underneath Pop Rock Pink.


After a quick coat of SV, I taped off a section on my nails, and used Dare to Wear Pillow Talk, China Glaze Sweet Hoot, and China Glaze Kinetic Candy to create the first puzzle pieces.  Then I added another quick coat of SV to the newly polished section to protect the polish for the next tape application.


I taped off the same section, leaving the opposite site of my nail exposed, and added another color for the next piece.  Then another coat of SV!


I taped off one last section for the last painted piece, leaving a Pop Rock Pink section exposed for the final piece!


Then I used my dotting tool to create the puzzle lock design.


I finished the mani with a coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast!


This was a really fun mani to create!  I love the way the colors work together!!  I hope you all enjoy it!

Happy Painting!

    1. I love it just as much as SV! I use SV more in my nail art because it is so easily available to me should I start running low!
