DIY Nail Art: Going for the Gold – 2012 Olympics

Image

Inspired by all the 2012 Olympic excitement, I thought some celebratory nail art was in order.

You’ll need:

1) white nail polish – I used Orly (because it was on clearance at Beauty Supply)

2) glitter in primary colors & in gold (be careful, some glitters will bleed)

3) clear top coat

As soon as each nail is painted, dip the end of the nail in a shallow dish of the colored glitter. For the “Going Gold” nail, pour the gold glitter over the white polish when it is still wet. Tap the nails off to remove excess glitter.

Top with a clear top coat and wait for them to dry!

For me, this was definitely a short-term look. Some of the glitter continued to fall off, and with a little one around, I didn’t want her eating glitter! That, and I didn’t wait long enough for it to dry and had some smudges!

Happy 2012 Olympic Watching!
