Nicole by OPI Be Awesome Glitter Placement

Hi Lovies! Today I would like to show you a manicure that I created last month while swatching the Nicole by OPI 2014 lacquers. The diamond glitter in Be Awesome is fun when brushed/dabbed on in a random pattern, but like so many others, I couldn't resist picking out the glitter from this lacquer and doing some arranging...

For this manicure, I started out with a base of Nicole by OPI That's Putting it Mild, a beautiful nude cream. Using the glitter from Be Awesome and a toothpick, I arranged them as you see here...

The glitter in this polish comes in four colors, but most abundant is the teal which I chose to use in between the other three shades...

As you can see above, the top coat bubbled around the glitter, but this wasn't noticeable from a distance and was therefore only a minor annoyance. I'm still trying to figure out the best way to topcoat glitter without resulting in bubbles...

I would love to know what you think of this manicure!

Thanks for looking!

  5. Your mani is fabulous! When you find a way to prevent bubbles around the glitter let me know! :)

  6. Wow you have patience. I have some diamond shaped glitter that I could do this with but I'm not so sure my patience could handle this lol....doing it your way having to dig out the colors from a fricken way could I do that LOL. You go girl.

  7. You have some serious patience! This is stunning!

  8. Really like this design you did with the glitters! I like that most of the nail is glitter-free to show the nail/polish. Just the right amount of glitter, in an attractive color scheme.
