All that Glitters- Glitter Glory

The time has come! I have been looking forward to the Olympics since the beginning of this year. I love the Olympics. I love the world coming together to compete in friendly games. I love athletes stories. I really have zero interest in mainstream sports they play in the USA where players get million dollar salaries. Boo. I like a story and heart. The athletes in the Olympic games have trained for years, and to compete in the Olympics is often their ultimate dream. It's so inspiring.

I got to go to some events in the 1996 Atlanta summer Olympics. I was only 10 at the time, but I remember and loved all the excitement about being there. I remember we got to see a basketball game, a baseball game (no longer an Olympic sport), and a table tennis match. They were certainly not the most highlighted events of Olympic games, but it very cool nonetheless. We stayed at my grandma's house at the time, and I'd stay up all night watching the replays of the gymnastics events on her TV in to the wee hours. I thought Dominique Moceanu was the coolest girl ever back then. So, yes my love for the Olympics goes back! 

Enough jibber jabber! Here is my patriotic manicure for the day. 

All That Glitters- Glitter Glory over black creme

Glitter Glory is a mixture of red, white, and blue glitters in a clear base.

I'm all set nail wise for Olympics! I also love the opening ceremonies and closing ceremonies. I'll be glued to that tonight. The parade of nations is definitely a highlight for me. Whew! Can you tell I like the Olympics?

Will you be watching the opening ceremonies? What are your favorite summer Olympic sports?

My favorites are gymnastics, diving, swimming and track & field. 

Happy Friday!

P.S. You can still submit your Olympic manis to me up until August 11th. I'll be featuring them in the next 3 Sundays "Share with You Sunday" posts. If you're interested in submitting the directions are here


  1. Yep, I'll be watching the Opening Ceremonies. I love the Olympics! Swimming and gymnastics are my favorite but I also love the rifle shooting, track, and volleyball!

    I've been watching the fencing!  And now the handball - never watched that before.
