Blue Puzzles for Autism

Hi y'all!!!  So as you see I survived the 5 teenager girl sleepover!!  My biggest surprise?  5 13 years old can eat!! Ha ha!!  But it was a lot of fun and as soon as the last girl was gone everyone in the house went to sleep, hubby, teen, 4 legged babies, me, everyone!

My second post for you today is for Autism Awareness.  You may remember some bloggers and I have gotten together for an Autism challenge this month.  Today's challenge is puzzles:
Left hand
I Used:
Loreal- Club Drive (light blue crème)
China Glaze- Sexy in then City (blue with blue shimmer)
Dotting Tool (check the Tips tab to see alternatives to buying a dotter)
Scotch Tape

This is a fun and easy design.  Just place scotch tape horizontally (not cuticle to tip) across nail, and using the brush that came with the polish paint each half of your nail with the colors you've chosen.  Immediately remove the tape.  Then paint the top half of your nail in the opposite colors.  For fun, I switched the order for each nail, but you can make your puzzle pieces any way you would like.  Then just make dots like the pictures.  Just make sure your dot touches the matching color so they are connected.  And I don't always say it, but don't forget the top coat!
