Digit-al Dozen: Paper Sunset Puzzle

Greetings and Nailutations,

It is Day 4 of the Digit-al Dozen and we are continuing with the paper prompt.  I was trying to think what is made of paper products that I could do a pretty scene on...and then it hit me = PUZZLES!  I am such a lover of puzzles.  I use apps now on my iPad now, but there is something so soothing about putting chaos into beautiful order to me.

Now let's get to the details!

Products used:
Glisten and Glow - Today Is Your Day, Great Balancing Act, Your Mountain Is Waiting, HK Girl Top Coat
Lantern and Wren - Mani Defender (press sample)
Drip Drop Nail Paint - Yoga Pants, Tighty Whities
It Girl Nail Art - IG118 Plate (press sample)
Clear Jelly Stamper - Big Bling Stamper (press sample)

I started with a base of Today Is Your Day and applied HK Girl Top Coat.  Then I protected my skin with Mani Defender.  I created a gradient with Today Is Your Day, Great Balancing Act and Your Mountain Is Waiting. Then I freehanded the land and palm trees and added HK Girl Top Coat.  I then went back to my Mani Defender to protect my skin and stamped with Tighty Whities, IG-118 plate and my Big Bling Stamper.

I love how this turned out and here is the look without the puzzle piece images.

Are you a puzzle lover?  Another reason I love puzzles is that it is the one activity that I do with my grandma and mom. <3

Happy Polishing,
Kristi aka BeginNails
