As I mentioned in my Olympics inspired eye looks post, Beautyheaven are also challenging readers to come up with some Olympics inspired nails...I couldn't resist getting a bit creative today. I do apologise for the swatches, I did these looks at night and the lighting in my flat is quite atrocious.
First up, we have a look inspired by the Australian colours of gold and green! I apologise for the traces of pink here and there, I did this with nail tape and I'm afraid some of the colour ran onto the yellow. :(
It's the first time experimenting with nail tape so I know now to match the tape to the polish for my next use. ;)
Next, we have another look inspired by the Australian colours, I did this with gold crackle over a beautiful mossy green.
Then, we have skittle nails inspired by the colours of the Olympic rings!
Next, we have a manicure inspired by the Olympics. The flag on my thumb, followed by a crown (to represent the Queen), the colours of the medals (gold, silver and bronze), an English phone booth (iconic) and last of all, the logo of the Underground subway in London.
Lastly, here's a more wearable look, and this is inspired by the gold, silver and bronze medals.
EDIT: I had a bit more time on my hands and so I came up with a couple more looks!
Here's another 'creative' mani. I have the Aussie flag on my thumb, green and gold Australian colours, London 2012, waves inspired by the colours of the rings and finally, a Vegemite nail as specially requested by Ms Divine Diva! I'm not very happy with the Vegemite nail and I think I will try my hand at it again some time.
And here's the one I ended up wearing for a few days as it's so much more wearable. Again, inspired by the good old green and gold!
