London 2012 Olympic Nail Art Inspirations
The Olympics are in full swing and we want to know if you chicks are in the sporty spirit?
I'll admit that I'm not the most athletic person, but when the Olympics come around, it puts me in quite the festive mood! It seems I'm not the only one. Whether it's Olympic inspired makeup or fashion, everyone seems to have a case of Olympic fever.
Just check out how these athletes show some pride:

Ahh! So cute, innovative, and colorful! Love the pride!
haha I love this!!
Yeah, i agree with a lot of other users. The Canadian ones are too cute! I see myself "sporting" that. But then again, i DO love to experiment with colours and designs, so... :)
So cute! love them all. Such a great way to promote your country!
Glitter nails, Canadian nails, U.S. nails, UK nails. There, in that particular order. Love many of them though.
Some of these are way over the top, and I don't mean because I happen to also be partial to Canadian designs :) They are just way too busy as nail art overall. I do quite like the simple stripes as seen on the German athletes (black/gold/red) which strike me as being the most wearable. The tennis/basketball/swimming designs are very cute, though I know for sure I'd never have a steady enough hand to do it.
My favourite are the Canadian and Glitter Nails!
Love the Canadian nails!!
