2012 Summer Olympic Fever

I love the summer Olympics!  My favorite thing to watch, which I've managed to miss all of, is gymnastics.  My favorite thing to say after they've completed a particularly amazing routine is "I can do that."  Obviously, I can't but I'm waiting for someone to say "You can?"  I love how proud the athletes are to represent their country, even if they lose.  It also warms my heart to see the parade of athletes in the opening ceremony, especially the countries that have only a handful of athletes.  Can you imagine how amazing that would be to have your whole country know who you are and be rooting for you!

I've done two Olympic themed mani's this week and will be sharing the other for Polish Days (August 7th).  My inspiration for these nails was the outfits worn by Great Britain at the opening ceremonies.  Despite the flack, I loved their outfits, they were so flashy and you can't go wrong with white and gold.

  1. This is pretty! I am always so jealous when I see people do really cool free-hand designs. I am a big fat failure when it comes to that. I was mentioning on another blog that I absolutely hate gold anything yet I just bought a gold polish. Insanity, right? I'm going to use it tomorrow. hehe

    I also love watching the olympics. When I was a kid, I lived for the winter olympics because of the figure skating. I think nowadays, I prefer to watch gymnastics and all the swimming/diving events.

    1. Thank you!!!I find any metallic polish really hard to apply, I always seem to get brush marks or streaks, it never goes on evenly and nice! I've never really been into the winter Olympics until last year, only because it was in BC, where I'm from!

    1. Thank you, isn't it pretty, I wish the gold was a little sparklier like the actually outfits, but I'm still happy with this!!
