Inspiration | Patriotic Nail Art at the Olympics

Missy Franklin, USA

Fashionable nail art has taken the gold at the 2012 Olympics. There were plenty of mix-and-match nails decorated with iconic Olympic rings, country flags and corresponding colors in glitter or gloss. Patriotic pointers were spotted on swimming medalists Missy Franklin (USA), Ruta Meilutyte (LTU), Rebecca Adlington (UK) and Emily Seebohm (AUS). To celebrate the Olympics, Minx has created over 200 flag designs, like the Union Jacks worn by Adlington in the 400m final, for statement-making tips. D.I.Y. lacquer pens and nail art brushes make it simple to achieve a champion look at home.
