Red, White and Blue.. and also Purple, Pink, Green and Orange!

It seems I have come down with a case of Olympic Fever to go with my busted ankle this weekend! I think a lot of Brits, including myself, were growing sick of hearing about the games during the run up, by which I mean the past 8 months or so. I just felt kinda like I was being force fed all this marketing mumbo jumbo left right and centre. But as I said yesterday, now that it's here I love it! Although equally, I will be happy for the country to resume normal service when the excitement is passed.

I've made a Union Jack Nail Art Tutorial (which will be up a little later today) and as soon as I'd finished that one nail I wanted to do more and more so I picked up some crazy colours and just committed!

I used Barry M White as a base on every nail. The extra colours, from thumb to pinky, are:
Cult Nails - Manipulative and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Green With Envy
GOSH - Pool Party and Cult Nails - Tulum
Barry M -Gold Foil and Sinful Colors - I Love You
L'Oreal - Unnamed Red and No7 - Pool Party with Barry M - Red Glitter
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Sun Kissed and BYS - Pink Panic
