De mo daijoubo, for i still had fun doing it. This is actually a pretty easy design!
Just like what i said the last time, i would do a tutorial for the puzzle nails. To make it easier i just use black & white so you get to see the contrast between the 2 colors.
Actually there are a couple of ways on how to do the checkered design. I just opted for the easier one, but feel free to experiment how to be able to achieve a better looking design.
- Base & Top Coat
- Dotting tool or Hairpin
- Your choice of nail polishes
Make sure that the polish is dry before you start with the 2nd step.
If you wanted to do a multi-colored design, then you could trace a line on it just using a pencil so that the color won't be as obvious compare to nail polishes.
It's better to use a brush with short thin bristles so for you to be able to control it better. Artist's brushes works best, especially those that got square-ends for it would be able to give a neater edge compare to the conventional nail polish brushes.
Then add the dots using a hairpin. Adding dots might be tricky. I just add dots at the top & right sides of the box (of the same color). You could also just add dots at the top & bottom of one color, then right & left sides of another color..like this...
Don't forget to apply a top coat to protect your design.
If you plan on doing a multi-colored design like this:
Make sure that your apply the light colors first, then be extra careful when you add the dark color. Alternate the dark & light color, not just randomly applying it for putting 2 dark colors together would just draw attention to those two. But then again, feel free to experiment!
Well, i hope to see your version of puzzle nails!
Hope you'll have fun doing this design!
Have a nice weekend,y'all!
