Olympic Nail Art! - Week 1 Summer Challenge

9:00:00 AM

Happy Olympics!!!!!  I'm not sure why, but this year I'm hooked.  At 8pm, I turn on that television and I watch right until the coverage ends at 12am.  Swimming, gymnastics, volley ball, you name it, this year I can't stop watching.  The Summer Olympics are also 100 times better than the Winter Olympics.  Although, I do love the Ice Skating during the Winter ones.  In celebration of the games, and after seeing the cute nail art on the Olympians and from many other nail bloggers, I decided to attempt one myself!!!!

On top of it, I was asked by Erin over at Hand-y Feats and Other Treats to participate in a Summertime Challenge and Week 1 is Olympic Themed!!!  The challenge is as follows:


I explained to her I wasn't sure if I would be able to participate in each week due to scheduling and such, but she was super sweet and told me to post when I could!  She also said that if I had to skip a week it was okay too!!  I think some of you guys should join in as well!!! Posts start on each Friday, and you have the full week to post, reason why I'm posting this on Wednesday instead of last Friday.  If you can't, then oh well!  Point of the challenge is to have fun!!!  I'll try my best to participate each week, but in September it might get a bit hectic with my start of another challenge, but we shall see!!!!  Head on over to her blog if you are interested in joining!!!!

Anyways, on to the nails!






Colors Used:
  • Base
    • Sinful Colors - Snow Me White
  • Rings/Flags
    • Sally Hansen - Blue Me Away!
    • Sinful Colors - HD Nails
    • Sinful Colors - Let's Meet
    • Sinful Colors - Black on Black
    • Sinful Colors - Sugar, Sugar
  • Gold Medal
    • Sally Hansen - Golden I
    • Sinful Colors - Amethyst 
The nails were rather simple.  The Olympic Rings and "2012" were drawn on with tooth picks.  The pinky, pointer, and middle finger were supposed to represent the flag look of the logo for the 2012 London Games.  To get the stripes, I used my striper brush, and tried to line up my nails as best as I could.  Finally, I added a gold medal with some more tooth picks.

They were cute, festive, and perfect for the opening of the games!  I wish I could have kept the manicure on longer, but white nail polish never seems to look good after 2 days.  Maybe I'm crazy and it's just mind over matter, but I always feel like it looks super worn out.

Did you do Olympic Nail Art??  What do you think of all the cute nail art on the US female swimmers?!

Again, if you are interested in joining the challenge, head on over to Hand-y Feats and Other Treats or send Erin a message!  Hope to see a few of you joining and getting your nail-art on!!!!
