I am bummed.  My Olympics nails were really a complete failure.  I had such a great idea and it just wouldn't come to fruition.  I tried three times and finally ended with this.  (I ended up taking them off to put on my new indie color anyway)  I may attempt to do some more later this week.  I also have another Olympic themed nails set for next week, so maybe I will be able to redeem myself.

The idea behind these nails was to use the colors of the Olympic rings and the style of the 2012 Olympic torch which is a really cool gold with cut out dots.  I also used a home made water decal which I was in love with but just wouldn't lay on my nail right.  So, here are the pictures.  Blah.

Also, here is a picture of the 2012 Olympic torch to give you a reference and to understand why I used the circle stamp.  

As I mentioned in a recent post, Courtney at The Cute-icle Chronicles will be joining me starting today on the 52 week nail challenge! She is super talented and I can't wait to see what she has done! So go check her out. 

Thanks for looking! All comments are appreciated :-)


  1. oooooo. I love that you were able to get the 2012 logo. I tried and failed miserably :) Post will be up soon :D

  2. Thanks! On my way to check yours out now!

  3. Aw I think your nails are super cute, especially your thumb!!

  4. homemade water decal? awesome =]

    1. Thank you! I have only made a couple but its really cool. You just need a printer, some water slide decal paper, and your imagination :-)

    2. That's great =] I'll have to try!
