What a visual feast the Olympics have been thus far. I have been in raptures over all the uniforms and fancy sports gear (neon trainers anyone) and eagerly anticipating the trend influences the great games are going to have on the coming season. With sensible hard working hair and no nonsense makeup one would assume it would be hard for any beauty trends to emerge.
Olympians from all over the world though have let their patriotism and personalities shine with some amazing nail art. Helped in part by the easy access P&G sponsored salon in the Olympic village, nail technicians have been throwing down some amazing looks as Olympians and family and friends have embraced this trend and really gone to town with their nails.
The natural trickledown effect is a huge explosion on social media of the general public showing their support for their country with their nails.
I am a huge fan of nail art. Usually I am a less is more sort of girl but in this case I think our Olympians got it right. Nothing says “I am all that and a bag of chips” like holding up your hard earned medal with nails that have that little bit of swagga.
What do you think?
