Olympic Gold Nail Art: Mani Monday

As much as we love nail art, we’re better at admiring designs than coming up with them ourselves. That’s why we’ve enlisted Anna Norman, the smarty pants behind Glitter, She Wrote, to be a regular contributor. Every Monday, she’ll be sharing her latest lacquer inspiration—you won’t be satisfied with plain ol’ polish again.

If you’re like much of the country (and world!), you’re a little Olympics-crazy right now. All eyes were on the women’s gymnastics competition, and the super-human flips and raw emotion made it hard to look away. After gold medalist Gabby Douglas captured our collective hearts, I knew I had to take inspiration from the medal stand and put it onto my nails. A lot of the Olympic-themed manis I’ve been seeing require serious nail art skill (5 Olympic rings painted on your pinky finger, anyone?), so I’m showing my Team USA pride this week with a simple gold medal mani that anyone can totally pull off—no Olympic-level skills required.

We’re loving the Olympics so far—so many exciting events and tons of American pride. (Ryan Lochte, even though the 400-meter relay didn’t go so well, we still think you’re the bees knees.) But as serious makeup enthusiasts, our attention was totally diverted when we saw this amazing eye look from Brazilian gymnast Daniele Hypolito.
