Sochi Winter Olympics 2014

I'm not sure about you but this girl right here has some serious obsession love with the Olympics. Naturally, I have to admit that I prefer the summer Olympics because they include gymnastics and I spent more than ten years as a competitive gymnast. Still, the winter Olympics has a special spot in my heart (and apparently on my treadmill since I used my Nexus 10 to watch them as I run!) because I enjoy the ski jump, figure skating, luge, etc. I'm sure you'll get a post inspired by a figure skater's uniform at least once this Olympics because some of them are so gorgeous and bedazzled. Anyway, when the Olympics only come every 2 years, a nail design is most certainly in order. My London Summer Olympics 2012 nails can be seen here, but this post is all about the Sochi Winter Olympics 2014! 
One of my favorite things about the Olympics is the opening ceremony when I see all the countries march in and all the various warm up uniforms. Sochi did an incredible job with the ceremony this year! I love the countries that send one or two athletes because I know that must be so special for them to get the opportunity. How cool would it be to say you're an Olympian?! Like oh yeah, this gold medal here...I just won that when I competed against the world. No biggie. How awesome?! Of course I route for Team USA because I'm an American and all that jazz but there are definitely some athletes from other countries that I hope to see get on the medal podium too!

If anyone loves the Olympics as much as I do and wants to do a nail design to celebrate their country please leave me a link in my comments so I can check it out!

  4. I am a huge olympics fan too, but mostly the summer ones, so I'm not really obsessing over these. I particularly like the spirit that is supposed to lay beneath these games, which is all about fair play, being united in sports without any nationalism or barrier, so I'm not a team supporter for my country just because I'm from there, I cheer for the athletes I think are the best.
    I find this mani so cute and fun and I love the shades of these colors in the swatching nails.
