Olympic Nail Art for Team GB!
As I’m sure you will all know, the London 2012 Olympics opened on Friday with a breathtaking opening ceremony. I was glued to the screen for the whole ceremony and I think the volunteers did an amazing job with their performances – they should all be very proud of themselves! It was great to see Danny Boyle pay homage to the National Health Service, and all of the brilliant music created in Britain. The highlight for me was definitely Mike Oldfield’s performance of ‘Far Above the Clouds’ from Tubular Bells III, one of my all time favourite pieces of music.
The games are now well underway and, of course, I am supporting Team GB all the way! To show my support for Great Britain, last night I created some Olympic inspired nail art. I painted each nail a different colour, the colours of the Olympic rings – Blue, yellow, black, green and red. Then, using nail dotting tools, I painted the Union Flag onto the blue nail, and gold Olympic rings on the black nail.
I know they’re not the neatest (it’s difficult painting straight lines with round tools!), but I’ll be wearing my Team GB nails with pride! The colours I used for this design are:
- Leichner Nail Gloss in ‘Blueberry’
- Barry M Nail Paint in ‘Yellow’
- Primark Nail Polish in ‘Black’
- MUA Nail Varnish in ‘Shade 13′
- Avon Nailwear Pro in ‘Real Red’
- Laval Crystal Finish Nail Polish in ‘White’
- Gallery Colours Nail Varnish in ‘Gold Mine 434′
- Sally Hansen Continuous Treatment Base & Top Coat
Which Olympic team are you supporting?
