Olympic Inspired Nails- Medal Metallics!

Hello Lovelies!

I don't know about you but I'm getting very caught up in all the Olympic fever at the moment (currently sat watching/ogling the men's gymnastics, enough said.) and I might be going up to London tomorrow, so naturally I thought I should show my support with some Olympic themed nails. After a few tricky ideas involving Olympic rings and Union Jacks I thought I'd do something a bit simpler and more wearable, yet still effective with medal inspired metallics...  




To create this bronze, silver and gold look I used the Barry M foil effect polishes in 'gold' and 'silver', Maybelline Colorama in 'toffee' and Rimmel's 'disco gold' top coat. I'm so ridiculously impressed with the Barry M foil effect varnishes as they cover completely in one coat and really do look like they could be nail foils...


What do you think of my medal metallic nails? Have you been enjoying the Olympics?

As I said I've had another nice day cheering at the TV and chilling with my boyfriend, then tomorrow we should hopefully be having a day in London as my boyfriend wants to see Batman at IMAX and I really want to go to the new Victoria's Secret!

Have a lovely night everyone!
Love Meg
