Nail Art wins Gold!

Athletes turn beauty icons overnight as the hot nail art craze is sported by our favourite Olympians at the London 2012 games. From Union Jacks to elaborate patriotic designs, these Games have to be our favourite ever for fashion and creativity. The swimmers seem to be the trendsetters; as Rebecca Adlington stood on the podium posing with her bronze medal, all eyes were fixated on her perfectly manicured patriotic nails. Other arty favourites include Gold medalist swimmer Missy Franklin who sported an American flag-themed matching mani and pedi, along with cyclist Anna Meares who flaunted her Australian flag fingertips with intricate white stars and Union Jack.

Rock the trend and get your very own GB nails with Ciatenails Caviar Manicure in red, white and blue available at Selfridges.
