As I understand it, blades from a propeller have their own tip vortices, because the blades produce lift via the same aerodynamic principles as wings. So they must have tip vortexes too.

So with contra-rotating props, e.g. the NK-12, do the tip vortices interfere with each other in a good or in a bad way? Is their nature somehow better than those from single props?
