Olympics Mania

Hey Everyone! I am writing this real quick in between Olympic events. I am completely obsessed by the Olympics. I have always been like this, staying up till all hours of the night, watching as many events as possible. This year I can't stay up real late but I try to watch as much as possible. I decided I had to do Olympics nails and change them every couple of days.

I have my first Olympic inspired nails for you. I started off with Red, White and Blue colors. I am going to make this fast because a race is going to start in a minute.

I did a french tip with Maybelline Sunburst which I think might be a jelly but I have to take a look at it again. I used a white striper for the white and China Glaze Ride the Waves for the blue.

I attempted to use a plate to stamp the stripes but it didn't work out too well. The colors stamped too light to  make the effect I wanted but it did help guide me a bit better.

I did the entire mani over a glitter fade with silver holo glitter so you can see a little of that peeking through.

The rest of the glitter is a concoction I created specifically for the Olympics since it was well after July 4th.

There is tons of glitter in there including stars though I don't think any are visible in this mani.

I loved this mani but the stripes remind me of socks. 

Ok, Phelps is about to swim so I must go.

That's all for now :)


  1. Awwww, the Dutch flag:P

    Love it!!!

    1. Lol or the French flag. As soon as I did it I thought, well this could be representative of several countries!


  2. Super fun! We record hours and hours of Olympics but immediately fall behind in watching. On the plus side, by the time we get to some of it, I've forgotten how it comes out so it's like a whole new event for me. :)

    1. That is brilliant I should be recording everything!!!! Geez I should have thought of that. Right now I am only watching what is on between 8 and midnight and then ALL WEEKEND lol. I wish I could have taken the entire time off and just watch it alllll day lol


Wow, it has taken me a year to figure out how to write this here! I love comments! I read them all and try to respond as quickly as I can. Thank you for reading and commenting!
