Anyways, we ended up feeling lazy after brunch so we just hung out at my place and watched the closing ceremony. Since I had some creative energy in me from not going pottery painting, I decided to do nail art. I mentioned on my last post that I wanted to fit in one more Olympic nail art before it was officially over. So this nail art is inspired by Women's Artistic Gymnastics suits, I'm not too sure what the proper term for them is.
So you're probably wondering how long that took me, well I say about an hour and half. That's with have my attention spread across talking to my friend, watching the olympic ceremony, and then watching a movie, as well as some other stuff. As to how I got all the glitter on my nails that's all thanks to Nicole by OPI "Rainbow in the S-Kylie". Basically it's a polish that is mixed with multi color glitter specks. Basically what I did was I swiped one coat onto a piece of paper and used my toothpick to pick up the glitter speck that I needed. It does take a lot of patience, but I think the end result made it worth it.
I was debating between Rythmic Gymnastic, Artistic Gymnastics, and Diving Bathing Suits. Rythmic gymnastic costumes were too flashy and complex and the diving bathing suits were too simple. I wanted a challenge but not too much of a challenge, so I settled with Artistic Gymnastic suits. It was one of my favorite sports to watch during the Olympics and that was what made me decide on a olympic uniform inspired nail art. I think I made the right choice, I'm pretty proud of this piece. It may be one of my best ones!
Canada and Russia
Japan and United States
Also, I love how there were so many olympians who showcased their county pride by displaying it through nail art! Check out this gallery! There are so many other articles talking about olympian nail art, you just need to google it. I'm sure with this international event, it definitely skyrocketed the nail art trend even more.
I hope you enjoyed my nail art in this post. If you have a nail art challenge for me simply click here to go on my Reader's Request and leave your request! My preference is something you haven't seen before and want done. Anyways, I hope you enjoy the rest of your week!
