Nicole by OPI: Be Awesome

Hi everyone, happy Friday.  I'm going to keep the words pretty short today and let the mani speak for itself.  I was feeling really good for pulling off a miracle with my recent report until a co-worker came in and told me that he got the impression that I'm in the doghouse with all of the bosses.  I got a horrible score and now I'm in trouble at work.  I am just really down in the dumps and don't really want to go any more into it.  The perfect word is defeated.  I feel bad for sharing my personal problems here but it's just how I'm feeling right now. 

Anyways, today I have a mani that I thought was just stunning.  I saw early swatches of Nicole by OPI Be Awesome and knew that I had to have it.  I searched everywhere for it and finally ended up ordering it from Ulta.  

For this mani, I started with a base of OPI Don't Bossa Nova Me Around.  I was originally very meh about it when I swatched it, but when I wore it, I fell in love with the color.  For my accent nail I used one coat of Be Awesome, which needs to be dabbed on the nail and spread around, it won't apply like a regular polish.  For the other nails, I spread Zoya Lux on the nail before putting Be Awesome at the ends.  I really love the final outcome.

I really love this mani and I am head over heels for Nicole by OPI Be Awesome.  Let me know what you think in the comments.  I hope everyone has a great Friday.
