Blue Puzzle Nails

20140416-194645.jpg

For some of the nail art challenges I’ve been doing this month quite a lot of the theme are blue nails or puzzle nails for Autism awareness month.

So I mixed the theme with having a blue gradient and blue puzzle accent nail.

I used Essie ‘Borrowed & Blue’, Vinylux ‘Azure Wish’, OPI ‘No Room For The Blues’ and ‘Keeping Suzi At Bay’.

For the puzzle accent nail I firstly painted each section with a small paint brush then using a dotting tool for the jigsaw pieces.

I topped them all with Seche Vite.

Another blue manicure I did on the 1st April to show awareness for Autisim using an unknown blue colour by Barry M on the majority of my hands, and Models Own ‘Indian Ocean’ on my middle and ring finger. I then created the leopard print with the Barry M polish and OPI’s ‘Eurso Euro’.

To find out how I created the leopard print check out my previous posts.

These water inspired nails were inspired one of the many nail artists on instagram.

I used Barry M’s ‘Blue Moon’ as a base, ‘Blueberry Ice’ for the middle section, which I did in one sweep on the nail polish brush, and then with a small paint brush I used OPI’s ‘I Saw…U Saw…We Saw…Warsaw’ to add the darker strokes.

From April 1st 2013 a campaign has started on Instagram to raise awareness for Autisim, where you paint your nails blue. There’s no rules or regulations you can do all month, one week, once a week or one day. So I thought I would dedicate the 1st April to my blue day.

So my first blue manicure was a simple one using OPI polishes ‘I Saw….U Saw….We Saw…Warsaw’ and ‘Can’t Let Go’.

I used ‘I Saw’ on the majority of my nails but used the liquid sand on my middle and ring fingers for accent nails.
