Manicures of the 2012 Olympic Games

Thanks to Pinterest, bloggers and the popularity of do-it-yourself internet tutorials, plain nails are no longer in. Many women are going outside of their comfort zone when it comes to their manicures. The Olympic athletes are no exception. Here are a few of the fun manicures spotted in London this year.

I think the nail art is so underrated!! These girls are killing it - I was so excited when photos from the games started being posted and all this nail art was popping up! Great post!

Those are so cute! I'm quite surprised that they all have such nice nails. I consider myself to be a semi-athlete and my nails are TORE UP!

I'd totally noticed that, too! LOVE. Makes me desire to paint my nails... which I never do. Next thing you know I'm going to be an olympic athlete.

Awesome post!! I saw a few with accent nails, but nothing this detailed on TV. They look great! But wouldn't those super long nails slow down a swimmer? Hahah.

Makes me jealous! I do good just to get 10 un-smeared nails of one color! =)

I love it, but I lack the patience and the steady hands required to do this. And the willingness to pay to have this done...but it's so cute!
