Name: Frances
Location: California
Manicure Description: I decided to design my Olympic nails based on the colors of the Olympic rings. I started by making the rings on my ring fingers with two sizes of dotting tools... but that was tedious, so I decided to do abstract swirly stripes on the other nails to match. If I had been paying attention, the colors would have been in the same order as they are on the rings, but my room was dim, so they aren't.
Favorite Summer Olympic Sport: I'm not sure I have a favorite summer Olympic sport, I like watching whatever's on. Gymnastics are fun, though. I like those.

Name: Marisa
Location: Brooklyn, NY
Manicure Description: I decided to do a splatter mani using the colors of the Olympics logo. My base was Orly Au Champagne, a gorgeous matte white shimmer. I then added blue (OPI Ogre-The-Top Blue), black (Nicka K Noir), red (Cult Nails Evil Queen), gold (Beauty UK Aztec), and green (Cult Nails Feelin' Froggy). For my accent nail I used the same colors above and created rings with the edges small straws to create the logo. I then added polka dots around them.
Favorite Summer Olympic Sport: My favorite summer olympic sport is swimming!
