Puzzle pieces are the international symbol for Autism.
The puzzle piece logo was first created in 1963 by the National Autistic Society.
They explain that the symbol of the Society should be the puzzle as this did not look like any other commercial or charitable one as far as they could discover.
Nowadays the puzzle piece has much more meaning and better ones too.
I could make a list with meanings but I guess you're here for the nail art right?
Let's end with the fact that Autism is a puzzling condition.
Here is my nail art:
I actually did a sandwich nail art.
As layers I used a local brand polish; Etos - Mint Cupcake (which is lighter blue in real life than in the picture).
The polish is a milky blue crelly filled with small blue hexes, medium sized pink and silver hexes and iridescent bar glitters.
The above description promises a beautiful mixture...however I hated the substance.
Now, up front I don't have much experience with polishes like this, but OMG is it normal that it feels like painting glue with glitters on your nails?
Even painting a single thin coat was a quest on it's own. Whilst painting I could have done sugerspun nails with the strings of polish between my nails and brush!
Thank God for the topcoat as I applied it on the still wet polish to even everything out.
Between the layers of polish I've painted puzzlepieces using a detail brush and stamping polish; Essence Love Letters 05 Inkheart
Despite the troubles I had I am happy with the outcome.
