Cutting Tile !!! Yikes

Looking for advice regarding cutting tile. I am putting a ceramic tile floor down in my existing kitchen, I am moving my appliances, but am tiling around the existing cabinets for now. I need to make a couple of L-shaped cuts. I bought a tile cutting blade for my jig saw but it didnt seem to be making much progress, it was turning red rather then moving thru the tile. Any suggestions on how to get two to three L-shaped pieces cut without it taking forever? I tried nippers and I had about an inch to go and the tile split on me
thanks for any help rj

Mark up the tile to be cut and take them to a tile store. They will cut them on a wet saw for a price.
