Black and White Puzzle Piece

Who doesn't love a good puzzle? I don't have the patience for the real thing, but this mani was so easy that I couldn't help but try it. The basic design is a pretty simple colorblocking pattern. Some people may use tape, but I chose to freehand using a striping brush to draw my initial squares.

After filling in the squares with color, I used various size dotting tools to create the notches, and voila -- a puzzle piece mani in less than 45 minutes!
The base color is OPI Alpine Snow; the black is Sally Hansen XTreme Wear in onyx.
I'm heading to Hawaii tomorrow for a work trip, so I'll be working on a Hawaiian-inspired manicure later tonight (in between laundry, packing, an anniversary dinner with the hubby and picking up last-minute necessities).
